Really stuck on what wheels to get.
Any favourites?

I don't clean cars. So I'm of the same opinion!

Wheel choice is immense lol...
My fave is Team Dynamics pro race 1.2...
Fantastic well priced wheel. 2 many spokes for cleaning though.

Wheels ordered. They didn't have gun metal annoyingly but oh well. Black will do. Less cleaning!
Any one got a spare gearbox? I think the thrust bearing has gone on input shaft.
Extremely noisy with clutch out, makes a clunking  noise when engaging the clutch. With the clutch depressed it's nice and quiet.
The output shaft has a bit of play when I grab it from underneath.

Needs to be 6 speed.
Ebay prices seem extortionate

It was hayward rotary but I don't think he's trading any more?! Website is down and I've been waiting for a text back about warranty on my engine which hasn't happened.
He did text saying he wasn't well and didn't go into any more detail, hopefully just a cold and nothing more serious

I spent many hours taking through 4x4 websites to right the right steel wheel... Still didn't make my mind up
