Upgrades - 2011 / 2012

16 October 2011

Went to greensheeting and practice yesterday.

Passed greensheeting and went out for a practice run to see if all the recent repairs and upgrades had worked.

Short answer, yes they did, but TOO WELL!!!!  Blew the diff head to bits with all the grunt.   Aaarrrggghhhhh!!!!!!

Oh well, I am pissed it is broken again, but not surprised, as the diff head was the only part left of the original car and, I guess, if anything was gonna go, that was gonna be it.

Something missing???

There it is...

The broken bits...

And just in case anyone thinks I forgot to put oil in the diff...
