That's a shame! Hopefully I'll be able to go to Hamburg as well(provided I can get bloody insurance sorted!!). I should be at Marchtec so I'll see you there anyway. :)

hay mike looks fab you may think about ordering a set of the front lower wishbones off the duke why you are at this stage, as your car is so low at the front it may help towards the front wheels rubbing on the wings. I just brought a set and they look mint. just a thought!! keep up the good work driver.

Hi Tys

Thanks mate !
My lower wishbones have had the treatment with the reinforcing plates and collars added and p coated so same as the dukes (unless you mean the billet alu ones), i cant afford them :dance:
Also my car probably wont be as low at the front now as I've changed the front springs so not got the old sagged ones anymore, I loved it low but I didn't want the fresh chassis hitting the deck ! lol
thanks for thinking of me though :kiss:

hope your one is going well :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
