Oh well, here we go again.

It's said a wise man avoids a problem, a dumb-ass gets custom CV joints made.

Still, it's hardly likely you're going to start learning now.

Carry on.  :rolleyes:
Just because you're offended doesn't make you right.

And why wouldn't i get custom CV joints made when i'm going to be running over 350bhp through stock ones? Yes they can handle the torque but why not? Up-rated joints are less likely to have issues so that's one thing i won't need to replace.

p.s custom cv joints is avoiding a problem.

So standard joints can handle the alleged output you're aiming for without an issue?

So you're going to get custom joints (rather than new OEM) because?

Nothing to do with the dumb-assed angles you're going to run on the joints because whatever it is will be bothering any tiny change in the angle of the tarmac it sits on?

Jeez, thought i would have at least had the car before you started crying :grin: and i'm running custom because i've known stock-ish height 1.8t's to each CV joints when running a decent amount of power through them, weather it's due to the power or just a knackerd joint i'm un-sure but why not go for stronger CV joints? Saves me hassle in the future.

End of this month hopefully :) girlfriend's allowing my to use her drive so i can put the time and effort into this one!

Nice project
