One of my adaptor just failed and the centre ring snapped off leaving my wheel spinning like an egg with the bolts coming lose. I near shiznit my pants lucky i was only doing 20mph and the littlen wasnt in the car.
Gonna get the engineers to bore out the crapy FK adaptors and replace them with a 6mm thick insert for the centre bore.

I could have easily been killed if i was doing 70mph Evil or Very Mad

yea it does. PSI quoted me 900 to change it but the vw techies on VR6 owners club say the chain is a lifetime part so on the later vr's you can get away with changing the top guide / hydraulic (sp?) tensioner bolts and various parts witout going the whole hog. This is about 140 but doesnt guarantee the chain isnt stretched and may need changing anyway.

true i will just have to get the top done and see how it runs after as it may not need the chain doing
