Thanks very much old lad.
It's doing my head in at the moment, I've had to put my car into storage for the time being.

It's a G plate phase 2.
 It was featured in max power in 2002 and at max power live the same year. (built by a previous owner).
I'd get some photos up on here, but not a clue how to do it.
I'm a Garforth boy, born and bred, but last month I moved into my girlfriend's house in Harehills.

I remember this car from Max Power! I was in my loft the other day trying to find that copy to look your car up funnily enough! Awesome motor.. the previous owner definitely went for the award of lowest GTT on 17s award! 8)
What's it like to drive like that out of interest?

I can safely say, It's horrible!!! :lol:
There's absolutely no give, back end skips round quick corners, scrubs like hell on full lock.
It's just too low. I think 100mm is just too far. It's getting lifted soon, I think at least 40mm. Will still be low 'n' hard, but will atleast be a little more practical. I may even be able to get over speed bumps which will definately be a plus! :D

I thought that might've been the case. Unfortunately we do need some suspension travel!I'm gonna be in the same boat when I get mine back together properly and will probably need to move as there's a silly little speedhump in my road :lol:

I've got a mate of mine designing a skip plate for the underside of mine, atleast if i do catch anything, it should just slide off with no damage. May ever benefit the downforce  :wink:

I thought once use the rollers you get on pallet trucks and bury them into your sills. That way, if it does bottom out anywhere it'll just roll along on the rollers instead of scraping! :lol:
