Took a bit of getting used to, probably only because I'd never used one before but love it now.

We have a few free entries for belgium this year but wont be going as mad as last year first run out will be orc canal rally in may.. been busy tidying up after ourselves and going to make a start on heavy duty back end soon with low ratio 210mm diff, keeping it wide track still but with e28 style shafts. Hope to get some build pics as soon as we start!!

That doesn't look an easy or cheap back axle to build/make. Look forward to seeing how you get on,,, always interesting to follow your builds

Nice. E28 rear? Anti roll bar links look well inboard. Would it need a stiffer bar?

Some of it is E28, as for the anti roll bar it's a case of suck it and see, it might not even be necessary or I might have to make a stiffer one but I incorporated it in the build because it was easier than trying to add one later

The standard bar is mounted inboard

Plus with the rear now turreted It has a lot more suspension travel any further outboard and the anti roll bar would not articulate enough

It will have to wait till I can do some testing see how it works
