    Good to see you’ll be there Carl, defo grabbing a few laps with you if that’s alright! Probably going to sit the rest of this year out and get some bits sorted for the new one but I’m going for the social!

    I've only done the GP the once and it's a really good addition I think. When you shoot left at the chicane, it's alot faster than you take it for the national circuit.

    Look forward to seeing the pictures

    Looking good. How was the Renault sport day? First one I've not been to for a few years with me no longer owning one.

    Right on to the next bit I've been putting this off for quite a while but started yesterday..

    Set about seeing how and what I could do..

    But removing the axle was the fastest way about it all I have to do was remove the braided lines which credit to hel was not rusted up and spun mega freely so was happy and get the handbrake cables off which was a bit more work as it didn't want to undo it but I will be when 're fitting.. 20181015_081401.jpg 20181015_081407.jpg 20181015_081420.jpg

    @trackspec197 nothing.. just thought I would finally fit my polly ones i've had for a over a year and see what difference they will make I feel at the moment everything is working well together but it needs just a little more.

    Managed to do the bush in about 5 mins then threw the axle in torqued it all up springs in shocks on plumbed the lines in and fitted the splash guards and now just need to put the handbrake cables back in and blead the brakes..

    work is going so slow today I believe its the knowing that soon the car will be back moving again. .

    as mentioned I need to sort my handbrake out then bleed the system. I do think though I am going to be replacing my front drivers nipples.. The first session I have on track its always weeping so a new set is in order and whilst i'm bleeding the lot i might as well.

    so posted the picture and thought I would give a review however I can't really justify the review as I went out drove down the road and shook the steering wheel and the car turned. it was at 8 o'clock at night so wasn't warm. I then proceeded to go down the road to a round about where I went round it twice and thought more about getting the back end to step out which it did with minimum input from the steering wheel. however cold road and tyres and i'm not to sure on the pressures as after Rockingham I did check them but very quickly and will be tonight.. now I need to make a run tonight it is a known route so ill be able to get and idea of how the bushes react to daily driving.. and Donington on the 31st ill be able to see what it does to laps round there.
