    I was keen but I'm addressing a drivehaft solution before any dyno days or more serious events, etc.

    Yes.
    I can source the Dreamscience heavy duty/motorsport units as well but will have them made up locally instead, using genuine Ford/Volvo cores.
    We have a good contact for driveshafts we've been using for years. I had a chat about it last week around how they fail or prematurely wear, so they're confident they can build something with uprated outer bearing and join/knuckle that will last a lot longer.

    I've got to source some used genuine shafts first and will then hand them over to be done.
    Assuming, I'm happy with what comes back, my originals can serve as cores for changeover, etc.

    Although none of the Volvos that dynoed did.

  • So who won the prize for the lowest power numbers?

    I think there were a few stocker 240/740s that were pretty low

    Wishing I had taken the 240 instead of the Polstar,

    For anyone who was kinda thinking about going but didnt bother in the end, you genuinely missed out.
    This workshop alone was almost worth the 50$ to walk around in for the day.

    Props to @iceton1975 for organising such a good day, hope for a much better turnout next time
