I canít see them being any more than £150 a pair. The kit comprises of 2 extended stub axles and the spacer that fits behind the drum with nuts and bolts etc. You just need to put some washers on the bolts to pack the space between the two flanges and drill a hole in the end of the shaft for a split pin

I make just make everything louder. A good band I can make sound awesome, if the band is pineapple then then you just get more pineapple Iím afraid. Iíve just been to Devon actually to do a gig. Dolly Parton and Kenny Rodgers show in Sturminster Newton.

Yes bands often awkward lol love dolly and her fudge lumps
At least you have control of the faders ,
Do you come across totally useless acustics
In venues?
How's the nippers singing career coming along?
Any YouTube ?

Yes. The acoustics in Devon gig were shocking, it was basically a village hall with pull out seating though, had to pull a lot of 5k out. Also wireless mics were useless because they were using 2.4ghtz and there were 16 WiFiís in the area, they just sounded mega compressed.

Funny asking about Mel, at that gig I got her a job so she will shortly be doing backing vocals on the Dolly Parton and Kenny Rodgers tour.

I'm gonna need some but they'll need to be a custom width to match my Custom Minis frame but I won't know for while as the car is nowhere near ready for me to be able to take measurements.

Mark, are you still offering the option of the in-fill pieces to go between the spacer and the trailing arm ?

I've had a PM from Mark to say he won't be making any spacer's in the near future due to personnel reasons! though this may change later in the year?

I have a set of Mark D spacers fitted and intend fitting Suzuki rear hubs inc Suzuki bearings my question is what torque setting to use so I don’t put excessive strain on the nut and shaft pin .
Suzuki is 150-200 nm and a mini is 81 nm does anyone know what his pins with standard mini castle nuts are rated at .
Thanks

I tried to message Mark directly but his folder is full so can’t receive messages.

rear arms by joa kwin, on Flickr

here is how I built my wider arms, I put the plate on top of the arms because at some point when I get more money, I plan to mount an air bag to the arm at that spot
probably a slam bag ss-5
https://slamspecialties.com/W/product/ss-5/


my arms are 3.5 inches wider per side, I set them up with billet hubs, and 7/16 studs in the hubs and honda del sol rear disc brakes
