    Sounds epic. shame about the mechanical failure, but I guess it's just teething problems.

    Yeah to be expected.

    It seems that when the drive shafts were measured I hadn't taken into account the adjustment of the lower arms for camber. Which ofcourse will push the hub further out.

    We manufactured to some 10mm spacers today and I've added them.



    All set and ready for tomorrow.

    Interesting day at Mallory.

    Some flat shift issues to start with and then an issue with the diff saw me only get a few sessions in.

    Car back home, engine removal started so I can send the box back to quaife to get the plate diff removed and an ATB fitted.



    I know ATB's aren't as good, but I can't be dealing with diff problems, removing engine and box each time if the plates wear or the ramp angles aren't right or whatever.

    I'm not going to worry about the 1 second a lap slower that I'll be, I just want the car to work every time I take it out.

    Changed my mind, ordered a gripper, will be with me Saturday, box and diff off to a Quaife approved specialist to be installed and back to me hopefully in time to go in the car for me to make it to Brands 23rd July

    There is only one way to contact me - E-MAIL ME AT colinesmith@aol.com.

    Literally thousands of Nova (plus other Vauxhall and motorsport parts) are available from me. But only if you send me an e-mail.........
