    Anyone Break anything at PV?

    Since fitting the engine, it has been 100% reliable, and bever ever caused me a problem. All 7000 miles!

    On Sunday of all days the car decided to spit the dummy out, pretty hard and the car chose to run in 'limp home mode' all the way to PV and back.

    Had it on Tech1 yesterday, and its showing the 02/Lambda sensor is fubar'd

    Not a massive expense to sort, fingers crossed it will be sorted tonight if I can be arsed to get the soldering iron out

    Anyone else got any stories to tell?

    HAHAHA @ ade.

    sentiments to benlee, be glad that it's was only a tyre and rim that have to replaced and not your entire car.

    There were a few breakages on the strip! couple of driveshafts giving up I think.

    I was lucky enough to come away with only a broken lid on my AG glass polish!

    Sorry to hear that Pete, not a good end to PVS.

    Is it quite easy to get sorted.

    For once my car was faster than Byrons! Glad it should all be ok soon though mate.

    As some of you may know I was having dis-pack issues on saturday but this all seems to be ok now it's dried out
