Good luck tomorrow Nath. Be interesting to see how you rate the Hoosiers and how the two cars stack up!
I missed this post. Where’d you get the gearbox/subframe mount from. The oe design is shocking.Yeah I could buy the pms one but it’s not the strongest on the dogbone piece. It’s got bits cut out the middle to reduce weight. A friend of mine snapped his.
optimiz access do a solid dog bone, but with anything holomagated rally it’s not cheap

Rallying is a lot harsher on them compared to track unfortunately though. Last thing I want is a wheel coming off at 100mph through some treesBeen using the PMS ones for a while no problems and my mates had them in 18 months.
Just don't swing off them when checking nuts when hot.
Hope my PMS ones aren't the same then ?First one snapped just putting a set of road wheels on before rolling road. And the one last weekend snapped in my hard when I put the socket on it to torque the wheels. Those 10.9 ones on ebay don’t look great from the inside where it’s snapped. Look more like cast than anything ?
Handbrake is unreal on it now with the whole new rear set up.The way it slides round is epic ?
How does it take the harsh landings after taking off over the crests? I guess you run a sump guard?
Cheers mate. This year hasn’t been to bad fixing it. Gearbox is holding up well now.I had somehow also missed this thread.... Just been all the way back through the thread.
Love how this gets used/abused/fixed and used again. Looks like you have had a lot of fun with it.
How did you find towing it with the Sprinter? I will be using our to tow shortly
Subscribed now so will be keeping a good eye on the thread.Cheers mate. This year hasn’t been to bad fixing it. Gearbox is holding up well now.
And the sprinter is mega. Pulls the trailers really well. Get around 25mpg going to and from events with the van full of spares, but it’s a long old thing with the trailer on.
