So I've been thinking about this for a while....

Stripped the car down...

And get some S2k wishbones and bearing packs...

Image

New driveshafts...

The uprights are with Ollie at Phoenix having 5 mm machines off the fronts and some brackets made for the AP 4 pots.

I have new AP 308 discs and a couple of sets of team dynamics on the way too. Wishbones are currently at the powder coaters, not being done black ;)

Once it's all bolted back together it's off to TTS fir a significant power increase ;)

Marc.

Sounds interesting - what's the main reason for the change?

Who are TTS?

Ability to run the bigger and easier to change bearing packs being the biggest benefit.
TTS is where my engineer friend Darren works, they are Honda and Rotrex specialists ;)

I used some degreaser, and some autosol with very fine wet and dry paper. Will spray some acf-50 on it all too before reassembly.
