Fantastic engineering going on there, some hard won advice for you, insulate the brake lines and rad pipes to prevent any heat transfer to brake fluid in the pipe keep the heat from rad away from fuel tank and lines. i would also recommend higher tensile strength bolts for the hubs go from 8.8 to 10...

Re: The Vusky. Dead for now

the flywheel is newly made, so with out questioning any persons skills is it on the crank square? Is it correctly made check with a DTi.

Re: A Californian drying out in South Africa

you will find it will handle better with 1/4 deg neg camber static i.e. two people in car, the camber increases as the wishbone rises. if you start with too much camber you will get more as you brake and the front end dips and end up with more camber than the required amount to combat the tyre roll ...
