    Yeah, ah well at least the new set up deals with Tuffty power so it should be good for my lowly needs.

    The kisses were probably for one of my many b itches lol

    thing is with paddles.. puk type, is there is less wear material as it only resides on the puks.. but the other side of the coin is they have more grip and are of harder material.. Do 1/4 mile launches and slip the clutch with this type of material and stuff will wear.. no avoiding it.

    IMHO:
    Abused paddle vs abused std, paddle will last a lot longer
    driven normally paddle vs driven normally std, std will last longer

    Feck me, no I dont know the history but thats messed up. :think: how Motors in Motion thought that this was ok I dont know.

    Is it a good idea to carry on using this gearbox into the future?

    I would imagine that the box that the came in was likely to be square, with a sort of brown cardboard look to it, not dissimilar to this:

    They are normally made from trees I believe...

    A fair amount of money... it came with a guarantee and next day delivery. I was at work so I couldn't inspect it and I guess the garage didnt clean it and inspect it. Hmm I think they'll be getting an email with these photos.

    I see it's my turn to get derailed today is it :laugh:

    The box came from motors in motion,

    It came with bodged sensors that didnt work and caused the speedo etc. not to work.
    And its ****ed from being in a fire.

    GGGGHHHHEEEEEYYYYYY!! :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    Yeah mate, get on it. That's epically bad, especially if it came with a guarantee. However I would imagine that it would be a guarntee that it would WORK. Which it does in fairness.

    Repair process for the gearbox (Taken from 034 Motorsport) is to smear light amounts of Chemical Metal over the pitt marks to hide them....

    Fixed!!

    I'm not saying all of their stuff isn't, but I didn't personally have good experiences or customer service from them.

    I shall say no more. Find my hybrid thread if you want to understand why.

    tony had a good suggestion, that the damage was maybe battery acid on it.. if off a nsf crashed TT.. its on the area's where you would imagine it could splash to.

    the purpose I degreased it and pressure washed it was to make it clean (and your subframe) as your car has always oosed oil from various orifi, progressively fixed as we have done assorted jobs.. gbox was always leaking, but it looks like it was from a loose speedo drive, which has now been sealed & tightened up properly. Any fresh oil which escapes will be easier to trace, but I dont think it will now. Yea its corroded to ****, but it works, and is oil tight (I think) - It needed 0.5ltr oil added to it I will add, so its been running low on oil after its leaks...
    Its all back together, and aside from getting the clutch to bleed up properly (fcuking thing) it works.. I still cant believe how **** a design of slave cylinder/release bearing, where you cannot bleed the hydraulics at the cylinder, only the feed pipe to it which is at the top.. doh! Rant over.. Audi clutch designer sux :p
