    Haha they literally won't let you drive up the hill with one on when doing pugfest. Supposed to be a parade!!

    Still an awesome event.. I've been in the 205 with a standard 106 engine with cams

    Exactly mate. They will not let you wear one. My best time that day was 8 seconds quicker than the midland speed championship class winning car that year lol. Got told off for 'racing!'

    Plodding along.

    Wiring about 80% of the way..

    Cracked up and cut the old cage out, so starting totally from scratch with a ‘rollcentre’ weld in cage.

    Picked up a few more goodies today

    @A1axx Your car was mentioned in a other thread related to "rigid collars" but as I was told you actually converted the front to a Cup axle and didn't do the mod in question.

    But there is something else that caught my attention related to something you said about original Renault drive shafts.

    Is this related to "standard" or Cup ones? I'm asking because we've a guy over here that has a problem with wobbling under certain conditions mainly felt through the steering wheel. He has replaced many parts and checked lots of things but not measured the shaft(s) IIRC.

    Btw, saw the "last night" photo on insta. :cry:

    Yea the shafts I had were not 'true' slight wobble, however I didn't notice it even at good speed!

    So you were talking about the normal ones you converted to Cup dimensions, right?

    The 205 was quick up that hill but no wonder with that make over. Wish I would have had something like that throttle body on my 1.6 GTi back in the days. :thumb:
