Ha yeah think there's some skill in setting them up. Mine is fine apart from small leak so not fucking with it. I did consider installing an XF lsd centre but quite like the old school single stripe... :)

They tend to be a bit of a pain when they just keep spinning a wheel at the lights.. mine did anyway..

Almost feels like that, It's still a bit scruffy but as i want to use it I'll be happy if it just doesn't rattle, smoke and squeak... :)

Crap!

BTW if you want to to save the rotor you could possibly run a mig weld on the inside of the race. Might drop out after that.

Yeah cheers, I've done that with bike rims, works a treat. Got mine out ok but koozed a socket doing it. Just looked at price of rotors and thought may as well put new ones in while it's in bits. Should be last expense for a while, hopefully... :doubt:
