i have lots of cleaning gear, but Dodo is my favorite right now

Driveshaft was £125, wishbones £30 each, lower ball joints £10 each. Changed wishbones and ball joints both sides but changed only n/s shaft cause the outer CV joint had gone

Difference with the Dodo Juice ? if so then yes, its pricey compared to run of the mill stuff but gives very good results and easy to work with

yes its pretty easy, just a video feed from the headunit, then a live and earth for the camera, also headunit has camera detection so soon as i put in reverse the camera comes on automtically. Camera was only £20....ebay jobbie

well the clutch and DMF finally gave up, so ive ordered a Sachs Racing stage 2 Organic clutch and SMF kit that will hold nearly 400Ft/Lbs+ of torque......at a very very shocking in a bad way price :shock:

Hoping to get fitted within a week, then on to a R-Tech stage 1 map to see about 195BHP and 320 Ft/Lbs+ of torque

should see 0-60 in low 7's high 6's and top end of about 140 MPH whilst maintaining an average 45MPG

So the new Sachs SRE organic clutch and SMF kit arrived. Capable of 390Ft/Lbs+ of torque so future proof any performance upgrades i make. Also the uprated Audi TT and superpro wishbone bushes arrived

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Old clutch out, the center of the clutch disc detached. Cant complain as the original clutch and DMF setup lasted 192K :)

New clutch is in, but not liking how it feels, dont know if it needs bedding in or its the way its been installed or setup. Biting point is high on the pedal, and when you find the biting point the car just wants to run away, this will make stop start traffic rather annoying. Its like it only has 2 speeds, stop and run as fast as you can, there's no slipping though, just hard to get the clutch\power balance for slow cruising with such a small area of pedal travel that dosent have a gradual bite :confused:

plans for the rest of the week are get new steering rack, track rod ends, superpro wishbone and steering rack bushes, Audi TT uprated wishbone bushes, and o/s ball joint installed. Change gearbox oil and also need to get a nail removed from rear tyre, 4 wheel alignment and MOT.

Wishbones that are only a few months old from Europarts are off the car, already bushes have cracked, so prepping them for the Audi TT uprated bushes along with superpro bushes.

Image

Image

Drilled out the old bushes

Image

Image

Image

Uprated solid Audi TT and Superpro wishbones bushes in and cleaned up the wishbone. Getting the TT bushes in without a vice was a fucking nightmare :x

Image

Image

Image

Also received the superpro steering rack bush, to go on with the new steering rack
