Build Diary Wed Jul 04, 2012

 

Well I thought I would post a few shots of the buggy now that she has the correct springs on!!

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts the owner of AVO told me point blank he wasnt going to allow me to talk to a technical person to ensure I had worked out the spring rates correctly - I will NEVER use AVO again and I would advise everyone else to do the same!! thanks to the guys on this forum (Steve and Pat from Team X) who put me in touch with Dave at Dampertech, who has been FANTASTIC nothing was problem always helpful and knew his stuff without a shadow of a doubt - So thanks Dave ;D your a star ;D 

So here you go sits spot on, on the new springs with massive clearance now!!

Oh and the slightly modified column surround, this still needs work (blocking up the hole on the other side where the other stalk was)
