10 grand sounds alot... considering that would get you a new small frontwheel drive something with about 80 brake as a general rule of thumb. it was going to cost that to finish the drivetrain on the last setup. and that would have been so highly strung id be ripping it to bits every year or so to check up on things rebuilding stuff...between 300 and 400 with a YB is going to be reliable enough not to have to worry about blowing it up taking a trip to the shops

this thread however wont be fast littered with updates..i have alot of prep work..stuff to shift...and get ready to cut a big hole in the middle of the car!
TangHO...youve been in there...you know how much room is in there lol...as for being sneaky...i have my reasons!
no worries phil...ill let you know when its next on the transporter to come back home for a little love.

I would like to say I am suprised.

But Ive known of this cars existance in the shatcave for months, as Ive been knocking one off over the cage while your not there :lol: :lol:

I really want to do that (cosworth 4x4 build) to the RS but I cannot justify us cutting a hole in my shell and making it all ourselves, I dont think it would work so well?? :lol: Although if you wish to convert me, I will listen to your ideas :P and sell my engine shite :lol:

I look forward to getting that cage myself.... And I promise not to steal your expensive panels!

Not gonna touch your parts... :P

Like you say, the deals Ive had means I'm gonna have near on 200bhp of N/A madness for probably over half the price it should have cost!!! (engine wise...)

I need a liner and tip for the welder so I can get blowing holes in it!

MT75 box...std issue for 4wd cosworths...engine will be a basic 330 bhp conversion..maybe 350 depends on which bits i chose. this is where i have to be careful as the drive train will start to cack its pants past this point....then its big money in gear kits...diffs..thick wall front diff case...

ive seen alot of people on PF with stage 3 4x4 saph's having issues with the transmission :cry:

one reason i went 2wd, i couldnt afford the diff's and gearboxes :lolz:

i have no idea how alex's box and diff lasted as long as they did, he wasnt hanging around when we did our 1/4 testing on our private test track... :hsugh:

fingers crossed tho ill be a fair bit lighter 1/4 of a tonne at least which will take some of the strain out of moving the car...who knows....be fun while it lasts..if its that unreliable then ill have to just go mental with it cull the harley and get some proper diffs and box on the go :)
