Will be riddled with problems their last attempt ended up with someone dumping the Astra Van back on their hands as it had problems no one could resolve not even them!

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.

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

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

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

How does a floating bell help you stop?
