It's already broken into its component parts. The rear bumper had a rain light and the front bumper was ripped off on track.If you end up breaking it I might be interested in the rear bumper and a wing if they're in good condition. The radiator too
Yeah see mainshaft bearing failures all the time now mate!Early October 2019
Spare few hours after work this week saw me splitting the box to check the hole (out of interest tbh). Haven’t seen one fail there before. It’s done well for the abuse it’s had in this car and in Johns flamer over the years. @NorthloopCup is this a common issue?

The cars now tucked away for a bit while I go on holiday and order some bits to get the rebuild started. Ideally I’d like to get it back on track this year but will see how things progress once I come back from holiday.

Thanks as usual to @Djw John & @Mickb for all their help.
It whined in most gears for a while, unsurprisingly the new oil i stuck in recently didn't help much. I've another box to throw in so ill stick this one in the scrap pile.They start to whine as first gear rubs on the crownwheel. They then just become a ticking time bomb. I’d imagine it’ll need a new mainshaft looking at the damage there mate.
I've a couple of spare boxes, but thanks for the offer fella.What you doing for a gearbox Dave? I’ve got a spare 182 box that is stuck in 3rd but the casing is good.
It's been a trooper of a box, cant argue at all. I really wanted a huge hole as well, not a £1 coin sized one. For the Insta innit.Its only whined for the last 15 months or so.
That came out the flamer at about 120k so I would guess its done 135k, 20 odd trackdays and quite a lot of drag racing. I'm disappointed the hole is so small!
I'm Okay thanks Martin, I've already got an exhaust for it.Need a decatted scorpion???
