Hello all. Been a while since I updated this, well, until recently the weather was pretty benign so I pressed on. It’s now more than 90% finished, a final trip to Plaeides to fit new inner pistons and seals, discs, pads, top and bottom ball joints and replace the driveshaft intermediate bearing. Firstly, a HUGE thumbs up for Plaeides, proper old school knowledge and service! The car is now absolutely superb! It’s the best driving CX I’ve ever, err, driven! The extra power and torque is fantastic, yet unobtrusive, and the DTR T2 gearbox means it’s doing 2,300 rpm at 70mph, probably helped a bit by the 16” wheels. It’s quite soft, yet composed, and with all the modern soundproofing I destroyed my knuckles fitting it’s very quiet. It really does everything a CX Turbo should but just ‘more!’ I’ve done a few longer runs in it, 3hrs and all seems good . Now to point it towards Europe and go and use it for what I built it for!
