    Had a bit of a scare the other day when i lost drive after some horrible noises. Turned out the welds in the diff had broken and eaten the cogs....so yeah, shit got chewed. Luckily i had already got a spare diff and had it welded ( big thanks freddie! ) so chucked that in and its all good

    Glad it was a simple fix, diff back to whoever welded that then for a refund me thinks! Glad it hadnt gone to pod and done it though, nice to see the weakness was found on the street just normal driving first! lol

    Well update time!
    I took it up to pod and had a good day, it was my first skid day in a year, so took a little settling in. after playing with tyre pressures and suspension settings it was all good
    Didnt enjoy it as much as i thought i would though i think going from the no fucks given s14 to a car i didnt want to damage or abuse too much on its first outing took the edge off slightly...
    The only downer of the day was when i came into the hairpin on the handbrake and had a blow out, sending me off into that giant blue petrol can thing



    Thats after straightening my folded over exhaust!
    I tried the classic t-cut but it wouldnt touch it. But cannon saved it using something called G3



    Decided to sort my blocked exhaust by getting Jim to cut the back boxes open, rip out all the insides and weld them back up.
    This worked well and sounded awesome....until the underside of one of the boxes developed a 10" split a week later, making the most hideous rattle.
    So got the grinder out and just cut the boxes off! Lol



    Does look a but odd without them though



    Went out for a "drive" last night with a few of the usual suspects. I "drove" round a wet roundabout and managed to take my passenger rear tyre off the rim making a horrible metal on tarmac noise
    Limped it up to a petrol station to try and blow it back up but the piss weak air machine was no use. So had to put the spare on



    The front face of my rim was ok, Just hope i havent chewed the inside edge too much as it looked quite bad
