Thruxton is 90dB my car tests at Combe at 93 to 96dB...
The killers can be slid in further and locked in to killer even more noise and power...im driving up in afew weeksto get tested there.
Need to drive the fd round Thruxton.

Well rebuild of rear brakes today...not a simple pad change but a full strip and clean as sliders ceasing and pads stiff in carrier...causing uneven wear.
I got lucky on ebay a brand bew set of ds2500 for rear 65 quid so there in there now too.
Went for a drive an a nagging clunk from rear end...so wheel off again and check everything. No play atall...
Think im gonna have to take shock off poss a  dead spot on first movement...or its just dry poly bushes...creaking...
Car has allways moaned and groaned cruising on our dreadful roads but this is a definite der donk over rough roads....tightened shock rod nut and strut top bolts....way too hot now for a test drive to see if ok...vut nothing gonna fall off...
