Sadly the car is no more after aquaplanning in very heavy rain
Iíve topped up the oil and water and driven it to work and gym the last two days and itís been fine? 🤷*♂️ Car just been out on the back burner after I snapped the diff. Itís now got a 1.8 diff with and LSD fitted its changed the car quite a bit. Takes off like a stab rat now and just seem to want to get you down the road ASAP! Fast corners are faster etc. Gives confidence, open diff a bit of a fishtailer.
Sorry to hear about your car hope no one got hurt. Wet roads terrify me in this thing. 😬
