How soon are you planning to do it?
I'd like to see how I get on at lydden before I suggest welding it SmileSmileSmile
i'll probably creep round you & get you to weld the diff when i come down to swop the gearbox internals over for me, can't see it being this side of Christmas tbh

thank you sir, can't wait to pop down. Mines an early gearbox with the speed sensor, so the diffs got the speed ring on it just to be a pain

thanks very much for the offer, but the bank mans telling me to clear off already this month. & think it'd be dearer to courier it than if i brought it down myself, i'll just have to be patient & besides be good to meet up

It's made a massive difference to mine SmileSmile
I expected it to be un drivable on the road!
It's a bit erratic now but that's how I like it SmileSmileSmileSmile
Time for some suspension mods now SmileSmile
I want to go faster!!
Same as always lol!
