Am i right in thinking that the banging i am experiencing from the underneath of my Cup when accelerating heavily in 1st is a loose engine mount? It happens all the time and does not need to be in the wet and the wheels do not spin.
Gone so soon on a Cup? My cup used to do this alot before I lowered the Tyre pressures in the front. Now, after I have got it rolling, I can floor it and get pretty good traction. Before this the wheels used to bounce and make a very loud banging.
if you do a search there is loads of threads about this problem, a couple of people managed to find the soloution, although since I got my new toyo proxies (and it hasnt rained since) my car doesnt wheelspin anymore when flooring in 1st
Sorry for being less than perfect in my description of "axel tramp" you will have to excuse us mere mortals for not knowing everything about everything in the world of car mechanicals.
What I was refering to in my igronant fashion was when driving a powerful font wheel drive car, in my humble experiance, I have being able to make the front of the car bounce and bang like a good un. I described this as "axel tramp"
mine has started to make a very strange noise (banging) since i fitted a magnex to it.
in 1st and 2nd gear with my foot hard down it start to make the noise. i am coming to the conclusion it is breaking traction as it only seem to do it on rough roads or coming out of corners with a uneven wieght over the front wheels. it never did it before i fitted my zorst though and i can not really pin down where the noise is coming from, dont think its an engine mount though.
yep its the engine mount beneath the battery coming loose. Both me and VR6MAN have had it and got it repaired, but it does come back. Mine was fixed for ages and i do really thrash it loads 100% of the time and its only just started to come back. knock knock knock.......
If your garage cant fix it, get them to ring my garage who can and have fixed a few 172s with the problem: SMC Woking (where EVO took their V6 apparently) 01483 720322
