How does a floating bell help you stop? :o

tbh, the brakes are a good idea. When fully loaded, it will help it stop much better.

old 888 van was built by 888 racing

888 coupes built be 888 racing

888 sport hatch diesels - built by thurlby (dearlership)

T9 - buit by thurlby


dont get the two mixed up ;) Is this van a new van or a second hand one with the T9 options on it?

i remember the old 888van that was quite cheap IIRC with the z-let in it.

But there has been a Red MK5 Astravan with a VXR kit etc since that, dont know who made it though, whether it was just private or if Thurlby did it

yer i dont hear of there been of any problems with the 888 sport hatches.

And this is kind of essentially the same thing

I mean the original 888 van, had the same arches/splitter as the 888 Astra coupes did, and a 239bhp Z20LET.

I can see that being a troublesome car, but not one with a basically standard engine with a remap :boggle:

Needs VXR front bumper then it would be job done.


I might become a plumber :look:

either Thurlby or someone private did a red VXR styled Van, dont know if thats the one thats been mentioned??


Robin

The last van they built was a Z20LET wasn't it? The red one they built for the motor show?

That's a completely different ball game to a tuned CDTi, they've knocked out hundreds of them so far (200 888s, plus the T9s) and not had any problems AFAIK.
