Hi Mike
Hope your well
Yes your 100% correct standard subframe that’s been welded and had strengthened supports fitted plus rose joint adaptor plates and no ARB as you know Thumbs up


Yes mate all good thanks, can’t wait to get back on track but going to be quite some time now I think..

Have gone w but further still with the winter strip, engine and box are back out. Hadn’t realised until I saw a old Facebook memory that it’s been 2.5yrs since I built the engine so about time it had a cambelt etc, and in my normal style I was bored so though I’d pull the sump off and have a general look over as although had no concerns as was running well, i did have a couple of mis-shifts at the start of the year due to gear-lever problems - 1 off which destroyed the clutch pressure plate so thought no harm having a look etc...

looks like was worth a look and will pop a new set of mains/big ends whilst here

I wasn’t planning on doing much at all this year lol. I only needed to sort my driveshaft boots out and it’s kinda just spiralled from there 😂 and now I got stacks to do as now thinking if I need to do bearings etc it might be a good opportunity to look at cams as realistically with lockdowns etc I doubt I’ll be using it any time soon

I just cant understand why you blokes waste so much money and time on these cars ....he says LOL or was that my misses or neighbour who said that ????

You don’t need to justify anything to me Mike ...you know I’m a platinum medalist at doing just that ...get the cams in and get it ready for 6months time if you are lucky ...or just do it as much as you can afford and get out when it’s finished mucker ...you know I’ve got a massive soft spot for that/ your car Thumbs up

Oooh! Shiny parts! Look awesome! I am really curious how these are fitted with the plates.

So cool to see all the track car updates on this forum! Making me jealous!

Mike very wise.... I’ll be buying a Tegiwa one I recon ...as the (BG storage bag looks rubbish) and the Tegiwa ones amazing and the discount codes make it much cheaper every now and again

Unfortunately I didn’t get on a code but still a lot cheaper than the bg. Being toying with the idea for ages but with covid still causing havoc it pushed the decision as need to get things moving if I’m to make first race (if it goes ahead) and can’t exactly be towing race cars around at the min. It’s a good bit of kit though would definitely recommend it.

ive just made my self a string kit, hub stands and levelling plates, yet to try the 205 on it but ive had the evo on it. They are worthy investments imo.

Nice 👍 I’ve seen a few hub stands popping up on Facebook of late so may well be next investment - at least now can make small changes frequently and test what works best etc I haven’t got the power compared to some of my competitors so anything I can do to handle better should be a worthy investment

indeed, it will pay for its self in more ways than most things, just a handy kit to have.

Front ends almost aligned lol slight issue is I ran out of adjustment at just over 3deg camber so have some longer adjusters on being made in order to run around 3deg but more at the centre of adjustment opposed to right at the end. Also managed to get shafts measured and the drivers side needs to be 10mm longer to be central in terms of plunge at ride height whereas the passenger one is pretty much ok.. just goes to show how much variance there is in the shell etc.
