    Lol no I'm always trying lol and yeah I can't wait I'm just painting bits at the moment which is why it's not back together yet

    Only thing is I've had to raise the car because of the top mounts not going down low enough but I'm looking into it

    Excellent work mate. Loads of upgrades all at once is so the right way to do it. You feel the difference a lot more.

    It feels like its been ages since I drive the beast... it has now all gone back together and I have just come back from its first drive.. oh my it feels epic I can't wait to get back in it and try it again tomorrow I've just finished fully putting it back together. Scuttle panel window wipers and wheel arches bit what a difference round corners lovely

    Presume that post is predictive text: not Jack Daniels based :smile:

    I bet your little test drive was epic indeed. Glad to hear the fruits of your labour paid off. I can imagine your smile from here.

    Don't know much about the K-Tec discs. Do I see they are grooved on my phone ? With the DS2500's I'm sure they'll be fantastic though.

    Great work and write-up as ever !

    I'd say they where a big help when I had them on my old car it was the best upgrade I did but I fitted them when they where on there own however on these the shock doesn't rotate so it doesn't really do the same but with all the extra camber it feels so much more stable at high speeds round a corner

    It's was fantastic and no not Jack d based just being a tool..

    My last car I swore by brembo Max disks and padgid rs42s I could not see brembo disks for this one and heard some good things about the kits they do the set was about 260 delivered and the ds2500s I have always been a fan of.

    Now for more "test driving"

    To be fair, Freddos will probably be similar price to the top mounts by the end of the year :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    Top mounts might look good and help round corners. Not half as tasty mind...

    Great little test drive review there mate. Enjoying your enthusiasm.

    Nothing like that first proper drive when you've put a load of new bits on and it all comes together.
