yeah you know dont you mate lol, i wanted to ask what rod ends/rose joints you use because mdv use the best they can buy which is fine for race teams i spose but they are £95 each +vat and i need 12 of them on the wrc style rear end and im sure they are overkill for a serious track car and couldnt remember if it was you or AG who said there rod ends on the wrc set up were £35 and proven to be tough enough obviously,

yep i just looked and it was andy g, so im going to get the sizes i need off of mdv and see what i can source similar for myself, as i must admit they are not against me sourcing any of my own parts at all and admit some of the things they use like them rod ends are very prices but they only prefer to use the best available,


a couple more stolen pics from a focus mdv are doing for a customer showing the style of chassis engine mounting i am having and the wrc style rear cradle i will be using,

do a search for McGill motorsports mate, they will supply all you need and very helpful, my joints are bigger than andy's as are my rear link bars due to the car being build to do gravel as well as tar, andy's is purely a tar setup. i think i paid about £35 each for kevalr lined joints.

cheers markk i have found mcgill motorsport on ebay where andy said he gets hes from so i will get the sizes and details of the ones mdv will use on my rear set up and get some prices for myself, which is likely to save me around 40% off mdv's supplier,

also pm coming your way

well the fiesta is now safely in the hands of Andrew and the guys at AG motorsport

massive thanks tho to gus, really appreciate you towing it for me and i didnt even drive a single mile of the 943 mile round trip

also big sorry for going delerious on you and just strolling off to bed without saying a word, i seriously dont know what the fook happened there and i dont remember a thing! its like someone just switched me off

although a stella or two and being tired after being up for god knows how long didnt mix very well lol, and after argueing indoors till 12:30am with the poxy tomtom just finished me off i think

anyway good all round trip and apart from having a mare hunting down a tomtom charger lead as i left mine at work and a couple of flat tyres on the trailor it was a good smooth trip

so thanks again fella, certainly owe ya one

although next time try not to take me out with the trailer on your drive
