Sometimes it doesn't always go to plan,

managed to damage 3 corners on my car, and 2 on Endafs miglia when track rod end failed.

Saw a pic Endaf posted on the Facebook page such a shame after all the hard work you put into it! At least no one was hurt!

Bummer. Looked fast before that mind.

Not sure if hitting someone you know well is better than hitting a stranger?

I was using a rose joint as a track rod end, as I've made the car so wide there was not enough thread in the adapter, my fault. Endaf was racing a few hours later, mine is back together mecanically. Just waiting on lots of carbon bits and I need to speak to carl about some more rimms.

I still say Endaf turned in on me, he's still taking the piss out of me, don't think that will change lol

Lets just agree that you were all lucky to walk away to tell the story. As you say, its plenty of ammunition for Endaf to take the piss for a while
