Apologies for photobucket being down,i've used 20Gb of 10Gb per month upload,they should be returning it back to normal in a week or so.

Had a 'small' package arrive...

Fitted the new HSDs yesterday,didnt take long at all. The longest part was making sure they all sat level

Image

Image

Image

Image

This looked awesome,but far too impracticle for the british roads

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Also grabbed a photo of the new labels for the centre console

Image

Image

Trying out Flickr as Photobucket is being silly,its not too bad. Just a pain copy and pasting the img links

Took the car out to help bed the coilovers in on Maximum Soft. Found out i cant even park up a curb :( Thats the scrape marks you can see. Raised the rears 10mm and theres more clearance now,hopefully enough to have it driveable again :)

Took the car to have a full geometry set up. I used the settings posted on Roadster Drift as a guide,except i left the front and rear camber.

Image

Image

Didnt realise how much rear camber i have! This will soon be changed when i get my Wide Arches

Went to Norfolk Arena for the monthly drift practice. First time skidding properly since the car has been turbo'd. The day started off sodding wet with a very muddy track. Didnt take long to get back into the swing of things

Image

The sun came out,track dried out and i was improving alot! First time i had linked the track several times,things were going well!

Until....

Image

I spun out on the Kidney,facing the opposite way. BMW comes round the corner,luckily spotting i had spun so he slows down and straightens up. THEN he decides to clutch kick and hit me :/

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The car wasnt running right,found out that the Throttle Position Sensor had lost both its screws and air was getting in. Borrowed a screw from something else and it cured it. I rejoined the que and carried on skidding till 5pm,then it was home time

Image

Image

Wasnt a bad day in the end,could have been worse. Could have been a rear 1/4

Fair play to ya bud. I'd have probably cried lol.
As you say at least it's not the rear quarter.
New wing and new door and it'll be right as rain

Here are some photos courtesey of Mark Callf Photography. Give him a look and a LIKE :)

I'll be repairing the damage and giving it a lick of paint :) It'll be more cost effective to do it this way rather then buying another car and swapping it

Had my F1 Racing Stage 3 clutch arrive from the States today :) Not bad considering i ordered it last Thursday evening!

Where on the engine did you put the Oil Temperature sensor and what is the maximum temperature you see. I assume the oil cooler is plumbed in.
