road camber and cats eyes are just a bitch. I would love to go lower, but i literally bottom out daily as it is. Reckon i'd be changing sumps weekly if it wasnt for the sump guard! Laughing
This is how the guard sits, got roughly 5mm between the guard and the sump.

One of my mates in Belgium had a saying... if it's not scrubbing... then it should go lower!

I've seen sparks from his car on the flatest of roads.. it was insane! Shocked

no, your right, but strictly speaking im an engineering technician Cool

asume your right about the vibration, if your wheel was on properly the vibration would be transfered straight to the hub as spiggot rings are only there to help acurate location Eh? baisicly the litle plastic shit isnt wat actually holds your wheel on Panic

and im guessing nthe two "mechanics" were kiwi and gronwy Drink

dont mean to b funny but if the bolts were tight you wouldnt need one, but you`d have to set the wheel up using a DTI (pointlessly time consuming) baisicly the spigot ring doesent do anything and can be removed when the whel`s tight.... how come no one`s seen this snaped bolt? Wink
