He doesn't do anything any more, he gets BD Performance to do it. What surprises me is it is a long way from Plymouth to Wrexham, so I wonder if it really is a necessary journey......oh wait, I expect it was all pre-covid??

I was behind him in Weston, as I had just gone shopping and he drives the car like a :censored:, it definitely is an ASBO car, and not that special, though I wouldn't turn it down for the parts.

 

Did think the same - but as it's "his business" it's "allowed" supposedly. (Personally I don't agree, but then I'm probably not his target audience). It's a tie up with BD to boost the presence of both in the scene and get some free stuff from them at the same time. Some of the police videos were interesting though (but mostly common sense tbh).

 

Enjoy watching his videos, but not totally sure he's as "clued up" about ST's as he may want people to believe from the videos. Still, entertaining enough and fair play to him if he can get some companies to give him free stuff!

Did you have to drop the subframe or can you get away with just rear and loosen the front?

eBay sellers who cannot answer simple technical questions such as: What is the minimum inside diameter of a wheel in order to be able to fit the brakes you are selling?

 

All they need to do is get a disc and calliper then measure them. Instead they reply with "sorry I do not know that but 18 inch wheels normally fit".

Ask the following:

 

"Will you give me a full refund if I measure them and they don't fit?"

That may be too much for them to compute.
