    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.

    Is that an old strut brace or have you taken it off?

    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.

    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 :yes:

    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 :(

    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 :)

    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.

    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?
