Thanks guys, i better strip it down again then! One question though, why would they supply a CMS with them if they aren't up to the job?


Because many suppliers are more focused on price rather than quality, and a centre main strap is a cheap may of making a few quid.

Been spinning my N/A engine to over 7500rpm for the last 5 years with no centre main strap with no issues to report. No signs of movement or excess bearing wear

And I guess simplistic knowledge of what high tensile is...

I run a supercharger and I don't care the TB is on the wrong side.
VEMS + 12 PSI + Liquid Intercooler = Small Bore FUN!

I'm aware they're not really needed. It already had this one fitted though.

That's poor for so called performance part.

Thank you, the parts were ok, the doors needed a lot of work and i'm still not very happy with them. But then they were Minus specific.

I know what you mean, Rod didn't have much in the way of equipment! Just the one camera and no flashes.

No turbo update (its coming on though!).

Changed out part of my Arc angels steady, it was a bit shit. Squashed in on it self and rattled a lot. I actually saved some weight doing this to, only 50g but adds up.







The best bit though....

He didn't budge. My wallet took a hammering! Asked Carl for new bits a few times lately but lack of materials meant he couldn't, so I jumped on these.
