Do you plan to go any lower?

Stuck with cups? Can't you just go and get complete shafts?

Not planning going any lower tbh. Really don't see the point in building a car with all that power, that I can't drive in anger!! It's being built to be driven!

And I've already bought some 100mm cabby shafts, hubs etc. just need the 100mm flanges for the box. There's some on eBay at minute but there 100 quid which is giddy since you can buy a mk3 box for next to nothing, it's just finding one with the correct 100mm bolt in cups

Finally got some 100mm drive cups, had to pay toooo much but hey ho!

Also picked up a gti lift pump to go in my tank. Just need an inline Bosch pump to supply the juice

Apparently it's a couple weeks away from being done (read that as months lol)
