    Condolences. I also lost my wife to the big C. Especially hard when they fight to their last breath to beat it, but don't...

    thanks for the kind words

    the last time i drove the car in anger was September and i got some pretty serious clutch slip so a new clutch was ordered and has arrived i just need some time to chuck it in

    it could also be in the clutch linkage so i will check it out

    next items on the list are a new to me harness if anyone has a harness for sale hit me up

    and the diff which also will have a wheel change involved

    as you know a go bang isn't terribly reliable so am after a diff that is beefy doesn't take 1000hp to turn so i was thinking a borgie out of a commodore would do with a 3.9 or a 4.0 ish ratio and a locker the only fly in the soup is tyre diameters

    race rubber is limited in a 14 inch through to a 16 inch so it looks as if i will have to step up to a 17 just to run a decent width tyre as the car will get a v8 eventually i want to set up once so i don't have money wasted

    the plan is to get the right diff cut it down to a good width, weld on the brackets i want, straighten it, put some better brakes on it and then change diff rims and tyres any suggestions on this front wont be shunned

    just remember it is a race car function over form but i would like it if it looks good

    Sorry for your loss mate. I couldn't imagine having to go through that.

    But on a lighter note: what is your local race track you use?
    Your times are going good mate.
