Ah, crap. Well that must be right if 5th has worn that rapidly too. Hope they can be restored to working order.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Me in an auto... Ah, I think not :P But thanks for your kind offer Cam.

Gear box back in today with new LSD... It is MADNESS!!!!! Great to have the close ratio back in and very interesting with the hefty diff. Port Road and Silpway are going to be very very 'interesting' to say the least. :mrgreen:

Thats good to hear chelles! This doesnt happen to be my old ATS diff? That thing was awesome!
You try turn a slow corner and the thing pops and cluncks away due to the tight preload :twisted:

Yup that's the one Jarred. Its nasty! Its made the car a track car only really. May have to look at getting it toned down a bit to make it more 'friendly' and so Mr WOF man doesn't get upset with it.

Really cant be assed hauling the box out again anytime soon.
Itll be staying in for now.
But yeah tight turns are painful lol, actually any type of turning while accelerating is clunky, unless you give it full throttle

We did a bit of drag racing at Masterton yesterday (07/11/09) and managed a better time than she has done before.

14.477
93.50 MPH
2.239 60 foot
0.191 reaction time
Second in class!

Since I am such a terrible drag racer so I let Cam run her for the day. He did great!
There were 8 in the class, 5 Honda's, an MX6, a Corrola and my Mirage so was pretty pleased to see her get to second in class.

A few photos from the day.

She is damn hot off the line, but this guy's extra power showed...

And the man who took her to second - Cam :)

Nice work! :)

Personally though, i'd whip those mudflaps off next time. They're only acting as airbrakes... :wink:

looking good!
I'm hopefully upgrading to a factory LSD soon from having no LSD I'm hoping for good results with handling!

Good stuff ducko, you'll love the difference it'll make.

I'm off to slipway Autocross this weekend for a play in the final round. First round in the Mirage rather than the Coroll-ova.

Later in the day at the drags she was doing consistent 95mph trap speeds.
