As I can’t see the pictures at the start did you fit black or purple rear bushes ?
The original set up had Powerflex Purple Bushes, the 4WD rear end will be fitted with Powerflex Black Series as it's going to be used on track more when it's finished.

Iv'e not driven on the road with black bushes but will be shortly, I can't see it being massively different to the purple ones but I could be wrong, I'll soon find out anyway. lol

If you're swapping the gearbox you want one of these really:

Far more reliable than the 5 speed and obviously better on motorways with the extra gear.

The Caddy is away having the 4wd rear end sorted at Slide Motorsport in West Yorkshire so while it's there we thought we may as well get some parts ready for it's return.

We chose to powdercoat the parts in the same colours as out logo which I think has turned out really well.

MK5 R32 310mm rear brakes, I'll get some more pictures on asap. It's not quote built up yet so I'll wait until we have everything here for it.
