as regards to the gearbox crossmember I talked to mark Norton at the weekend at santa pod,he advised me to not remove it he had taken photos of it and discussed it with the other tech guys,when I get near those times they will have another look at it,wayne did discus with me changing it but as I'm going for another gearbox anyway it can wait till then.what you cant see under all that beautiful ali panelling is thick metal to protect me if the gearbox or prop ever went,i want to get it out asap but reluctant to be first round fodder I'm not a good loser
