    No that's the outer shafts mate, the gearbox end half shaft is different, also has the rifled end that locates into the diff

    Ok. It does look like that on the 200 they decided to change them around.
    As I have a solid shaft from the support bearing to the o/s wheel bearing.

    Yes mate I see, that's more like the meg shafts.


    So no big updates. However did decide to buy unwelded track rods. Just for safety's sake. The anti rotation links are fine as they don't take a lot of grief, just keep inner hub straight.

    New track rods are off a Toyota Corolla

    The Clio is finished and back on the road again!

    The racer geo is not as crazy as I first thought it would be. The front camber is around -3.5 degrees with the top mounts in their neutral position.

    Driveshafts are awesome, no issues with turning/noise under load. They sit bang on in then cvs. Of course at -3.5 degrees I'm at my minimum camber with top mounts out, so more camber won't be an issue.

    Drives just as it did before, of course looking forward to getting to know it on track again!

    The track rods are kind of temporary, I figured out a better way to make them using 4 standard track rods.. all for piece of mind and safety. However these will be spares!

    Love those pics. There are times when I'm washing my car and I catch it from a certain angle and get the full width of the arches and I just think 'jesus that looks good'.

    Totally agree mate. The front arches are just so badass. Wish they'd given just a touch more width the rear ones too. Would look even better!

    Oh and @A1axx you know my thoughts as I've said it often enough but I LOVE this car!

    Awesome! Cracking bit of limiter bashing in 4th! Where's your limiter set on that 7700?

    Well done mate. That's an impressive result I think and there's some pretty serious cars behind you too.

    Love the photos!
