    Fun In The Snow

    It's a PIAA pod which took some repair work and paint which I managed ok, the lamps are PIAA HID 80s 2 pencil beam 2 drive and the bumper ones are also PIAA 80 XT HID. Running dual HID in the prodrive lamps also. I like to go as quick at night as in the day

    Winter tyres make all the difference don't they... Hell, you don't even need to use the roads if your worried about salt!

    D2 Adjustable Suspension

    D2 are used extremely heavily in the DTM championship, they are also TÜV approved which says a lot in my book. Although not having had them myself I feel I can't give a proper recomendation. I would buy them myself however.

    Sexy models, work safe.

    Sorry pwlease don't smack me. I still need to get all the parts down to sunny Tidworth before I can start on the STI, the RA has had some work done though. Did you sort out a price for postage Wimpy me ol chum? Incidently I just picked up a Zerosports rear end and skirts for it. 47quid all in. Gotta love well known American Auction Site.
  6. ha ha and you thought it was girl's with their knockers wobbling all over the place. Got bored yesterday and created this. I used an old Oakley display cabinet and a cheap sign off a well known American auction site. OK so the pictures aren't great (phone) but you get the idea. I've shown you mine, now show us yours.

    Both, but it's really low ratio, unless that was the standard.

    What Model Is This?

    OK you experts try this one. My mate has a very early WRX in Red with a factory fitted colour coded sunroof. It also has a short ratio gearbox. Chassis No. gc800947* Transmission No. ty52vb3aa The reg is on a NI plate. My thinking is it's one of a few of the STI test beds, ie the ones fettled by STI after production. I'm still waiting on the engine number though. It just stood out as odd to me. Did any WRX come with a short ratio box? (which is the same number as stamped on the VIN plate) Any takers? Aston

    New Age?

    I reckon the new one should be called "Hunchback"
  11. I know two boys who run one of Mark Higgins old cars. They've seen it testing up in sweet lamb. His words were "It looked F'in quick and sounded F'in great" He's of the opinion it will do the job this time round. I'm pretty sure it will be a lot better. maybe we can have a winner to pick up where the bugeye left off.

    Any Snowboarder's On Here?

    I find talking to lots of people, flows are very much a Marmite type of binding. You'll love em or hate em. Nothing in between. One thing I have noticed is they aren't very friendly to non flow boots. My brother swears by them though.

    Any Snowboarder's On Here?

    They're called gas pedals or toe risers matey. They do an OK job if your just using low end bindings. I had them for a while but found my feet would go numb after a while. Not good when your competing. I suffered until I bought some Burton Cartel bindings with toe cups. You may also want to put some more degrees on your bindings. ie more diagonal across the board opposed to duck footed or a straight 90 degree setting. Both of which prevent a good carve.

    A Motorcycle That Won't Start..........

    As above really, if it's a new bwttery it shouldn't need conditioning. I had to replace my rectifier on my sv 650s, 3rd battery and still not 100% sure it's cured. Your earth points are the first place that will want looking at, make sure they're all clean and lubed with battery grease. I would recomend an Optimate, to mantain and prolong your battery life. Car charges should be avoided where possible. (dependant on Ratings).
