    I have driven my mates BA fairmont and I thought the traction control was pretty crap. If the BF's are better then it might be ok. They weigh 1800kg?!? I thought they would be around 1400kg considering it's a ute.
    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story

    Looking good, Micky

    Must be fun now in the wet weather we have in Melbourne - I can hardly drive mine

    But, still fun, enjoy it, and remember, with that power also comes a lot of responsibility.

    We should meet up sometime, and check each other's rides out....again...

    2187nm of torque!?? wtf this reading must be bs, is there a "." in there? Love the fiberglass case. More work on the carputer and less on the engine!

    this is the torque after the diff
    the diff is a 1:3.45 so 2187/3.45 = ~600nm

    Just an update on my screen.
    I've acquired this set up from a friend who sold his car, it was complete out of his car.
    But some cracks had started to form where he mounted the top screen,

    I started to fill up the cracks again but I figured it would just crack again..(just on the plastics, there is so ALOT of work that went into the back of it to make it all fit)




    So now i have decided to rip it all apart and plastic weld it all so i don't have to use any body filler




    Welded on strip of plastic and then below it's been sanded



    Much more to go

    @ Micky: What's the markings on your bezel? ABS or PPO?

    Hi Phil.

    I couldn't find any marking's on the factory bezel, it may have been chopped out by the previous owner?, the plastic I'm welding it with is ABS and it adhering to it fine.
    why you ask?

    EDIT: I just went to check another bezel I have lying around and that says <PP0>

    the final sanding is taking ages. I have to keep felling up low spots and then sanding more.. but it's getting there..
