Thanks mate.

Spoke to shock/spring supplier and not the cause of the accident due to low poundage spring fitted would not have made a difference!:confused::2Mad:eek:

so its ok to run around with different ride heights on your axles everybody!

Told fluids on track/ caliper drag brake balance all the things i was expecting !

All off above would have been exaggerated by wheel higher 1 side than the other!
statements from supplier...
collar come undone is unheard off ! mustve not been preloaded! which it was 55mm of thread as the os which has not moved !.

So its chalk it up to experience and move on repair and start again!

Think thats all folks for this year.

I got make some calls tomoz the more i think about it the angrier i am getting and thats just not me glass half full kinda guy!  I think i got of lightly the outcome could have been far worse if it happened at folly in 5th gear i think the car would have been obliterated.


Lol
But you have to remember that car is new, there is and will be something to fix. And you are doing good progress, car (and you) allready showed some seriuos speed.

Ofcourse they will say that it is not their fault! But the truth is that you accident were probably gaused by many things. Only reason that was found is that shock and spring... Still I have been wondering about that coolant thing...

"if you never hit anything, spin or go out of track, you are not going fast enough!" quoting my dad... :driving

You are doing good job, keep it up! :King

Cheers mate,

Got some jobs on other cars to complete and then its engine and box out should not take too long . Not worried about a few battle scars on bodywork. Go not show!

shocks will have locking collars.

and a little wing on the back !

Thats the 1 which car came with..standard still good. Gets turned and all drained of coolant and regular shots of oil in sparky holes..i bought a blown 1 on ebay that then went to Carl.
easy way of getting lots of spares.

pretty straight now. x3 relieving cuts and pushed back out. Got some bushes to change and then to geo for final tweaks.

Made a big decision for no more racing ( lol 1) for this year season nearly over.
 Axle is being removed and rebuilt. new bushes all round axle tube mounts rewelded with correct alignment and then get it ready for a full season assault next year.
possible piggy back adaptronic for a bit more power etc.
 Gives the bank account chance to recover.
