Awesome.

I was impressed by the Isuzu I had in my old Cav TD. Had that running 22psi and it was great fun.

Think that when I eventually get the space for a proper project, a TD Corsa similar to this will be the route I take for cheapish laughs!

Ah, I forgot you had rear discs. What's your thoughts on them compared to drums? I've got a disc axle in my garage but I've never been able to decide whether or not it's worth putting on. Have you got a bias valve on it?

can pull up alot faster giving me more confidence when hacking down country lanes , never had a issue with rears locking up easy even in the wet as for bias valves I've got inline ones off a mk3 astra

Nice one, might have to dig it out at some point and give it a try. I must've had it 2 years now.
