  1. If the weather is good, I'll be down perranporth the weekend before too, if it makes it to both would be a miracle!
  2. Yeah I have done. I will probably be at the next one too.
  3. It's great, feels really positive. I don't even have it on the short throw setting either.
  4. Apparently someone reported him for dangerous driving, and not wearing a seatbelt....which the police used his videos as evidence against him.
  5. I know who you mean, and feel just a little offended. Classic tyre fitter that guy.
  6. I know, I'm really gutted. Still, always next year huh. At least means the car will still be running in 2 weeks, local track is open, and I'm determined to take the fwd record.
  7. After all the hard work I've put into getting this ready for VW action, my trailer has let me down, and I can't get it there. I'm so disappointed. So I will be attending with plenty of Gin, and many 'if my car was here's stories.
  8. Typical couldn't get hold of head bolts or a head gasket today, so I've had to rebuild it with the old ones. What could possibly go wrong. All back up and running today, didn't get chance to test drive, will do in the week.
  9. Yesterday.. final drive to check the tune, and ended up with a load of smoke, bad idle etc. Low compression cylinder 5, stripped it today and found busted ringlands. I've got spare pistons, so hopefully be back together tomorrow night.
  10. Mk2 caddy Tdi Van.

    You have some epic dogs
  11. The hyd handbrake has really beaten me up, first I plumbed it up wrong (lol) then everything leaked, and it took 3 trips to the shops to finally get the right parts. But it's sorted now, back in it's wheels and ready for a test drive.
  12. Try a jack under the axle to simulate load on the car/the wheels on the ground, and then try it.
  13. O2J shift tower

    On top of the box, the shift tower, there is a pin that siezes up, very common. You can just pop clip off, clean it up and put it back with a little grease. Its the pivot that allows the up and down motion.
  14. Picked up the Kirkey lightweight last night, along with full padding, and head restraint. I have to breath in to get in, so I think a snap off steering wheel may be required. I've a set of Luke harnesses to go it too. I realise I've bought the lightest seat and bolted it to the heavy standard subframe, I just want to get it in and find where is comfortable. I will fix it on aluminium mounts at some point.
