Lol, it happened it a striaght line at the point where the car starting spinning tyres at VTEC in 1st. No dropping of clutch, or a harsh start - just a normal start, floor it and let it build.

Gonna try a std shaft for now and see how it goes. They are only about 20, but if It chews it up pretty quick, Il gonna need to look in to uprated items....

Looks like the final drive may be doing its job wink

Having a bit of trouble with spring rates at the moment. Std coilover springs where around the 330lb/in mark, ive worked out I need closer to 8-900lb/in to keep the front from dipping and the rear from wandering all oevr the show.

Turns in really well at the moment, which is great for slow corners, but a bit nervous in the faster corners as the front dips and kicks a rear wheel up...

Getting some paint work done over easter, and there are only one or two things left to do now - fingers crossed all will be ready for Snetterton in April smile

It was the Gearbox side drive shaft - hub end - sheered about 1/2 way down the splines meaning the circlip on the end of the shaft was no longer doing the job and the shaft dropped out of the hub. On swapping for the new shaft, there was about 25mm of the end of the shaft left in th hub... frown

Yeah, drive shaft is sorted now smile

Went up to Twweks over the weekend, ordered some very heavy springs, braided brake lines, pull cable for the battery isolator, and some pedal extensions smile

Finally got round to fitting the external pull cables for the fire system and ingition cut off. They arnt connected yet, but it was a job I was having difficulty sussing out where to locate them. In the end I had to trim the bonnet back a little to allow access...

Also, painted the bonnet matt black, and stuck some stickers on...
