CTEK quick attach detach battery charger is the only thing I recognise in all of this

No idea what's going on in the diff, gearbox and transfer box pictures but they're porn! As is the rest of the car.

I'm excited for you to get it up and running, god knows how you feel haha.

Cool

Luke, the build is coming along nicely.

What hubs are you using?

Do you also have uprated driveshafts?

Cheers

I'm normally pretty good at updating the thread so this is the first time I've had a little nudge

Well, Voltex kit arrived yesterday after even more faffing around than usual with customs at Heathrow airport.

Seriously well packed with a total weight of 400 KG!

The quality of the kit is simply outstanding and the bonnet really took us all by surprise with how light it is! Literally pick it up by pinching your fingers together.

Nakajima-San from Voltex is here to aid with fitting. Turns out we have to reinforce the front end of the car to cope with up to 1500kg of downforce created by the front bumper/splitter assembly alone! Anybody want to park their car on the front of mine?

Anyway, everything being done by Nakajima-San and WK is meticulous and precise to say the least - fantastic work! I'm simply in awe!

Nitrons need sending back to Nitron for new springs and adjustment including new valves and softer bump stops to cope with the additional downforce.

With the amount WK have had to increase the track by, we are left with about 45-50mm on each side of the car on our trailer.

Anyway, a real mixture of pictures to the end of day one of fitting....enjoy!

Standard for now at least Conrad. Yes, 1200hp rated driveshafts all round.

No, the 4G63 is an 'off the shelf' item for Bullet but I would have had to buy 5 4G64 billet blocks for them to make it. Stuck with cast for now.

Not really as the brackets are substantial to say the least. The outer lip on the trailer is 35mm high so we should clear it ok with the splitter although yes there will be some overhang. We will have to be spot on when loading as we only have 40-50 mm each side between the lip and wheels due to the wider track.
