As you've now discovered for yourself, it's definitely business as usual at Carbotech (and Ian is as helpful as ever), although they no longer have trader status on the MLR.

Have you had a chat with RossSport? I'm pretty sure it was them, or maybe Gary at APT, that told me you could use an AYC/ACD unit in a X RS - and is one of the reasons why I've kept my faulty AYC/ACD...

Latterly I've been helping out with data logging and analysis for a team that runs a Seat TCR car. There's nothing fancy about the engine side of things (2ltr turbo making 350bhp) and oil temps on...

That's really interesting, and the oil analysis very reassuring. How many miles/kilometres of use before the tests were carried out?

I have 265 888s on my X with >-3 degs front camber and a bit of toe out and there's not even a hint of tramlining. Tramlining, imo, is mostly about the geo setup, not the tyres themselves.

And the other thing about 888s is they are reckoned (not by...

Probably best to avoid the "fully floating" variety unless fitted with anti-rattle clips, unless that is you are prepared to put up with lots of rattling noise!

Initially my engine builder would drive the car at a pretty much constant speed of around 60mph for an hour or so - in 5th gear. That was using mineral oil. Then change for fresh mineral oil and...

I was a 50:50 chance, but I'm afraid you are wrong! It's the fog light that illuminates as the steering angle increases beyond a set point.

Why don't you ask KW? I think they prefer questions like this via email. Alan Hook will most likely be the guy that responds.

In the meantime I know someone with a 6 with KWs, but I'd need to...
