So easy todo pal? What yours bracket like for the power steering pipe?
Easy mate. 3 13mm bolts each end of the pipe then 2 10mm bolts that keep the pas pipework in place. Undo the 10mms first. I've just used cable ties as I was in a lazy mood. I might get round to proper brackets another time but ties will do a good enough job.
Including the SMIC cross bar, this little lot comes in at 45kgs!
Forget the strut brace, that's going back on.
So this with a nearly empty fuel tank and some more ponies from last year should give me a much better quarter mile time.
12.9 here you come!
how much does a steering rack weigh?
to put that into some perspective, 12.9 is 2003 911 carrera 4S time.
Let's not get too excited. I might be slower.
Ahh get the wheels straight forward on the strip and rip the rack out.....
Is that an old strut brace or have you taken it off?
Nah it's going back on. I've only removed it to access the brake reseviour.
Leave it off, its gotta be 2kg lol
I did wonder if that was a pi$$ take thinking he was aiming for a proverbial 10s car.
I had an 02' C4S & doubt if it was that quick either tbh.
Hmmm, I could do with some losing weight!
EVERYONE is counting on you running 12's this year!
Thanks mate I'll try. Not many people seem to be up for running at all!
Won't be fast, will wheelspin lots and achieve nothing.
Will be funny though
lupo will be playing on sunday
What sort of times does it run Bill?
Can someone get vids of this? im only going on saturday
no idea.. never done 1/4 mile in its current spec..
its a dyno queen..
thats where it has spent most of its time - testing 1.8t products for me.
Will you remove the front passengers seat at the strip to lose a bit more weight ? S3 seats must weigh around 500kg , I know this as I pulled a back fat when I pulled them out the car
He said he is just going to leave it at that apart from shaving his knackers and having a dump....
Game Over lads
Master Cylinder went as I was bleeding te brakes. Really not happy after all the rushing about and 7 hours of cleaning.
Now trying to thumb a lift to Inters.
**** dude. What is it with you lot and killing MC's. Did you run it dry?
Thats lame mate, how did you try bleed it, with the pedal or ezzibleed?
Ezibleed. Done it loads of times before without any issue. I suspect I might have damaged te seals on Wednesday when I was pressing the pedal to the floor. Total bummer and the 2nd show in a row my car hasn't made. Tho was the one I was really looking forward too
Still, no need to "shave your knackers" as Dave put it, now.
why dont you get it repaired and go tomorrow?
Jason to the rescue though. Looks like I'll be able to drink a bit more this weekend now.
No mate can't be arsed with the hassle. I'll go with Jase then repair it in the week.
What happens when the mc goes? Just no pedal no matter what?
They say these things happen for a reason, you wouldn't want to lose the brakes after a 10 sec run
Now go drown your sorrows over the weekend
That's s**t luck mate will come a find you lot when I get there sunday
have a good un
A river of brake fluid down the inner wing.
europarts £186 with 30% off so 130 ish for a new master cylinder maybe 3 hours to fix
Master Cylinder | Master Cylinders for every make and model
Should get time to get under the heap of **** tonight and see what's going on. Going to get a couple of litres of brake fluid today.
After chatting to a few of the lads at Inters im now hoping that the MC isn't shagged but one is on order just incase.
Been meaning to ask did you find out where the fluid was coming from?
Hope your all sorted and up and running
It was another classic Fred moment a bit like the EGT sensor fun
oh come on, I need to hear this.
What was the likely cause?
I thought we all decided over a few beers that Fred had Fk'd it and a new MC was the only fix?
No no everything was fine on the car.. It was the equipment he was using in a rush that was the issue lol.
Didn't think could be the master cylinder seal as is a sealed unit bar the fill, outlets and bleed nipples...pressume was tge seal on the eazy bleed pissed it out everywhere?
