Not a lot to report today except that the dismantling with the help of Stu has now begun.
No nasty surprises other than some shot bearings, missing screws, a well worn carbon clutch - have a look at the comparison to Stu's old carbon clutch below. im surprised it was able to stop at all!, and a TR clutch housing that seemed a little toooo modified for my liking - it has been lightened more than stock, and so isnt really safe for bashing as there are too many gaps and holes to ingest sand, dirt, and dust. Not to mention a much smaller contact patch for the clutch to grip the inside of the bell.
So with Stu's help we will order a new clutch housing and bell, ABEC 5 bearing kit , and some suspension travel savers, as well as a new brake setup and a more bash-friendly chassis.
Ive decided to give the Kracken a go and be a test dummy. So if it lasts then ill aim to throw the carbon chassis into a 5B ss at some stage.
So now with the car in bits, we wait patiently for our partssssssss
