Usually you want the back stiffer than the...

Essflee liked post by JimS3 On thread : Succumbed to Revo
I had an old Revo map on mine when I bought it, it was a pig to drive slowly. Boost built very aggressively low down and it felt like the throttle was too sensitive.
I had the map updated to the...

Got it aligned today with the adjustable tie bars moved to the bottom, lined up perfectly.
The toe was way out with the bars at the top, looks like it is far better to fit them to the bottom:

Never understood why people fit Polly bushes to the rear of the 2wd cars with a torsion beam.
The bushes need a certain amount of give for the beam geometry to work correctly and maximize the...

kwistof liked post by JimS3 On thread : S3 Rear rose joint part number?

sssline liked post by JimS3 On thread : How should my car feel?

TPS quoted me £4 odd each for the injector seals... Rather expensive for an o-ring.
