    I liked this image too so I had a play in Photoshop. Hope you don't mind? I'm no expert, but I liked it.

    That's bad news regarding the car breaking down. At least it was at the end of the day not at the beginning. What are the symptoms?

    So I ripped apart the block to replace the piston rings I fried last night and after a suspect crank sensor I found this...

    Had a bit of a night yesterday....

    Firstly started by getting the brakes off and well would be rude not to get a pic of them on 20180619_191030.jpg 20180619_191033.jpg
    Then set about getting the box out to find this..
    20180619_222049.jpg

    This is the damage in the bell housing..
    20180619_224538.jpg

    This is where it's from..

    20180619_222810.jpg

    And the hole it left in the box..

    20180619_224546.jpg

    So now it sits like this..

    So what's your next step?
    Sorry to hear..these things are to be expected when you track your car as often as you....

    When mine started crunching I started to stock pile and have a new clutch slave oil and the box i bought as a spare so I have all the stuff I need and was always planning to change it after Combe but didn't expect a free lift home.

    And yeah the abuse it gets is part and parcel and this is the exact thing i wanted to happen and the reason why i have done so many trackdays this year imagine if this had happened coming out of the Karussell the cost involved would have been mega..

    20180622_213241.jpg 20180623_081324.jpg

    Everything worked ok bar esp light was on however took the sensor out and cleaned it and now it's all ok I'm just painting the rad support and waiting for it to dry so by tomorrow it will be all back together. Hopefully.

    Good work. At least it wasn't too bad if a fix and you're ready to go again. Taking gearbox's in and out of these is a regular thing that I learnt with them.
