Having seen the state of the gearbox oil, I decided to follow suit with the diff. It’s just as easy, <1h job:



I think that concludes my tinkering for now, she’s ready for her maiden voyage to the ‘ring..

Lovely evening for a blast with this rare beast

That almost looks like a speed 12 you're parked next to, but it can't be? So what is it?

Oh and another nay for the black badge on the front! I've just got a cervini upper and lower grille and looking forward to getting it on to get rid of my badge wink

Pretty sure it’s a Noble M600? Looks lovely as does your Mustang OP!

Bingo, M600 track sport.. epic machine.

While doing all my fluid changes and general tinkering, I discovered that the car has also been fitted with a full complement of BMR chassis upgrades.. I guess that explains why I’ve never found wheel hop to be an major issue!

First euro trip in flight:



First stop is Bruges, then Spa before getting to the Nurburgring

Leaving Bruges



Pit stop in Spa



And then cross country to the ‘ring



Car is running perfectly but showing signs of tie rod wear (some light knocking and tiny amount of play in near side rear link) so will probably be looking at uprated drop links next..

Some amazing roads in the Black mountains:





And a nice opportunity for an arty shot:

Here are the new drop links from Whiteline:



Their installation guide says to setup the ARB so it’s neutral at ride height.. given that my car is lowered on coilovers this meant a much shorter drop link than stock.

I’m looking forward to seeing what handling and ride improvements they’ll offer as the arb’s must have been under considerable load on the oem drop links.

Here they are fitted:

Finally got the front drop links fitted.. as I needed the coilover specific ones from Pedders:





These actually needed to be 2cm longer for the ARB to sit in a neutral position… again it’ll be interesting to gauge the change in ride and handling.

Since I fitted the Whiteline rear links, I’m pretty sure that both grip and ride have improved..

Such a small change that makes a massive difference that often gets overlooked.

Great blast across the Cotswolds today, taking in some excellent roads made famous on Harry Metcalfe’s YouTube channel..



Ended up at C&M for a drink and leg stretch

In the recent run up to C&M I noticed an occasional clunk from the front left in fast and bumpy corners..

With a little research and some man maths, I’ve ordered some uprated and adjustable Pedders top mounts. I’m assuming that the clunk is from a worn top mount bearing and the adjustable top mount plates will enable me to dial in the front camber which isn’t typically adjustable on Mustangs.

Sounds like you know your stuff there Janosh. I've got some kw clubsport coilovers to fit to my 20190GT if/when my job settles down. Hoping to get a more surefooted car that's not too harsh for everyday driving.

That'll be the first thing I've done suspension wise to the car and should hopefully make a big difference.

They’ll make a huge difference!

Depending on your driving style and what you’re trying to do, it might also be worth looking at some chassis braces from either BMR or Steeda.

Have a search for ‘stop the hop’ and you’ll see what I mean..

Thanks Janosh, stop the hop has been mentioned a lot in my local mustang group! It's on the list!

Wow.. the adjustable camber plates and roller bearings look to be beautifully made:



Looking forward to getting this lot fitted!
