You can do a 2 by 4 test on it.

Jacked up the rear first thing and it's working as it should, just above idle it creeps forward on the Jack, I'm putting it down to driver error I think!

Just above idle will it creep over a 2X4 ?

Apparently sand is the surface that shows up the weaknesses in a VC setup, in that the rear wheels get a chance to dig in before the fronts start pulling fully, and so it is not uncommon for people to get a solid shaft and decoupler fitted if they are mostly going to be driving in those conditions. For general use however, and snow in particular, a working VC is a understood to be a better option than a solid shaft.

Your best option would probably have been air down your tyres while on the beach to get a bigger contact area.

You can't just drop an image of machined billet on here like that without a few more details...

:D 025Motorsport designed "wedges" to lift the Speedshop exhaust collector and silencer, when fitted to a syncro. Made from marine grade brass, they will probably outlast the rest of the vehicle.

Thanks Ian, could you stick a shifter in the box as well please? And the boot I forgot to take home from the t3 bus meet.

How did the whisky beer go down?

That’s a slightly worrying statement......

I'll get it all boxed up and on the way to you. The beer went down very easily!

Got all the bits thanks, does anyone know if a speedshop silencer uses the early watercooled gaskets? They look the same.

As Ian said early wbx rear silencer gaskets are the same if anyone has one blown on their van, much easier to get from brickwerks than speed shop.
I managed to get the spacers on tonight along with the anti roll bar brackets, nice wee easy job.
The gear stick looks a bit more involved for a school night, I'll need to read through the instructions a few times first before I pull it apart.ImageImageImageImageImage
