    Porsche Calipers Finally Fitted

    Elsecar mega meet.

    Front ARB Fitting

    its a while ago but undo all the subframe bolts but leave the ones at the front in to hold the weight but completely remove the rear bolts so the subframe swings down. Undo the steering rack bolts as the arb needs to come out between the rack and the subframe.

    Kart Drifting?

    maybe just go karting in the wet? You have to change your lines but really makes you learn to find the grip.
