Project KP30: TRD LSD Ratio Change

I thought I’d last the summer, but I couldn’t bear it; hounding Audi drivers out of the fast lane was fun, but the 3.3 ratio was killing me.  I had to build it back into my 4.1.  With a bit of help from Rog we got both diffs swapped in an afternoon.

The 3.3 was like new.  New bearings, plates, everything.  So I was able to just swap it straight over.

This is the last picture I took…we spent so much time setting up the lash I forgot to pic up the cam!

The good news is it’s all set up and back in the car.  Tomorrow is the first planned dive.  If it goes bang you’ll hear here first…

Project E30: Sale Away?

I’ve done it.  I’ve put Concorde up for sale.  Concorde?  Well, yeah, because an E30 in this condition is a borderline one-off; well certainly on my budget anyway.  Why have I done it?  I’m still not sure.  I guess it’s a mixture of the constant worry of running a car this clean and possibly, now I have the Herald for general retro play, I want something a bit more mundane for the daily grind… No, I’m not convinced either and will probably end up with something less suitable if it goes through.

I took some pics to make me feel better though.  This has only helped to talk me out of it.

Please don’t buy my car.
