Yo roof,

Been speaking to Supermotolee, he mentioned vidration at 6000 res, Do you get the same thing?

by the way - what brake and suspension set up do you use?



cant say that it vibrates too much at 6K - 10K maybe but I have solid mounts throughout so you'd expect it.

brakes - metro turbo with servo at front, and minifins at rear - green stuff pas throughout.



do the promotive kits come with subframe mounts ( solid / poly )?? im building an r1 fwd and hoping to purchase a promotive kit in the next month or 2. im getting all the bits together and was wandering if i need to get frame mounts as im goin to order polys for the rest of the car soon

thanks

dave


the kit doesnt contain mounts but I got mine from min-its in solihull. go solid definately ! :)

I have bneen using mine now solidly as a daily driver for 3 weeks, with mileage from holland I have put on maybe 1600 miles and all is well, I've done several long distance runs and the opnly real niggle at the moment is that I have the wrong pressure rated cap on the radiator as I keep loosing water out the overflow, and we think I might need an opverflow / expansion tank.

I am also having minor issues with a pesky circlip, but a remedy has been found and its just waiting for a good day to effect the repair.

other than that it has been well behaved as a daily driver and actually gets quieter the closer to 12,000 rpm you get.

still loadsa fun :)
