  1. id get back under and have a look, might be something metal on metal or loose
  2. I run 14" e30 bottle tops with the stock brake set up on my GTI when using gravel tyres
  3. I think most bog standard 16v in like the mk4 golf dont have VVC? Maybe the heads are different also, ports and valve sizes?
  4. ive had a look at the superpro and they seem like they are similar however with a long sleeve though the middle rather than little washers. Just removed the smaller washers and gave me the adjustment back
  5. UPDATE: it worked, the wheel is now central in the arch which alot more subframe play. Im not sure why the powerflex bushes come with these spacers but they massively limit the alignment range of the front subframe.
  6. Cheers for the reply, will see how i go with removing the spacers, the super pro ones like they have a similar concept with the longer inner tube, r32 is an option, however not so easy to swap to a spare arm if one gets bent but will have a think, thinking abouT getting an alignment next week if I can sort the subframe out so will see
  7. Hi all, It looks like im not the only one that has subframe/caster issues on oneside or the other. As previously mentioned on other topics, loosening the subframe bolts enables the subframe to be shifted about to align them. Ive tried this and havnt had too much luck. Im running powerflex bushes in my lower arms and remembered they have a washer/sleeve you insert above and below the rear bush into the subframe..... which thinking about it removes all adjustment for the subframe ? Ill give removing these washers a go on the weekend and see how i get on, attached are th
  8. ive a similar problem in my gti, im putting it down tot he resistor in the fan as i cant hot wire it to come on slow. Fans are pretty pricey so i just wired it to come on at a low temp, ill cough up the cash one day to get a new one
  9. Hi all, I stripped my rear calipers, sliders and all at some point. Failing to take note which slider goes where, normally wouldn’t be too fussed but I’ve noticed that they are not all the same. One is straight like a normal one/front one and the other is stepped (Christmas tree like). does anyone know which way they go? Cheers
  10. they do a manifold, and they do a cat-back like Janspeed. They are 2 separate items
  11. I got one brand new a while back, I think it was in the region of 55 quid
  12. My gti has always had less caster on one side, I’ve moved the subframe forward on that side which has helped a tad, would be interested to see if something like this works
  13. Flywheel update: Epytec have been great in dealing with the above issue and have just dispatched a replacement fywheel for me, so pressume they sent the wrong one by mistake initially. A helix friction disk is likely to be mounted to it over winter/offseason now there are no more events.
  14. i had a creak/rattle coming from the backrest of the rear seats clips into the top (quick release style), i ended up packing it out at the time
