I forgot that I also replaced the 2 front engine mounts with 70 shore poly mounts. Already had a superpro rear mount + engine steady and the engine aint going nowhere :mrgreen:
The rest of the car may fall apart due to vibrations though 8-[

In waiting, there's a set of slotted rotors for the front as well as rs415 calipers. Just waiting on prices and availability on pads that I'm after.

Night and day between a pg and welded diff. I was warned by plenty of people that it is very harsh for a daily and to be honest, when I first drove out of my driveway I thought WTF was I thinking? :shock: :lol:
It's been in there for over a month and am pretty much used to it now until it comes to tight carparks and having to do 20 point turns with the car wanting to bunnyhop in reverse as the tyres fight each other :oops:
The other thing to bare in mind is that the wheels snap straight instantly if you let go of the steering wheel while driving around corners. No lazy let it slide through your hands, it needs to be guided back.


Yeah cool, sounds like what I've had with mine. I'm switching to LSD as the plan (at the minute) is the car will be more daily than track use so LSD will be easier on the arms while not a flash on the track. I'll still have a nice welded box there if I want it or decide to do my own Popeye impersonation though :P

Cheers

Good to see this progressing. Can't wait to see what's next!
