What gearbox was the golf running and did it handle the power ok?


Golf had a Quaife 6speed box and ATB diff so wasn't too bad. Had the driveshafts sleeved for strength too.

used to embarrass many more expensive cars and would hit a genuine 158mph @7300rpm in 6th.


Cool. Mine is having an o2a for now and an upgrade to LSD is on for next year. I think 6 speed is a sensible option.

Well, I have just taken my spare car for its first MOT in many years. Speed bumps have sprung up right down the road our cul-de-sac goes on to. Thankfully they are the cushion type so it seems as long as I aim down the middle, it doesn't bottom out.

Pictures when it passes the test.


It passed! I have now insured it and taxed it, (more expensive than the insurance!) and, if it ever stops raining, I can now drive it. Pictures as soon as I can.
