    LOL Peasant IRS

    Having both IRS and Live Axle 1991 cars in my garage right now (and having driving both back to back last night on the same roads), the IRS is leaps and bounds ahead in handling and ride comfort. It’s not a perfect setup but with the tweaks I’ve put into mine I’m now finally happy with it. It doesn’t thump and jar, even with SSSLs in it. The VN has SL’s in it and is much harsher. Now I’ve sorted out the grip issue – Happy days.

    Also I should qualify the bolt issue – With the splines engaged in the eccentric, it takes some decent hammer blows to get it out. I’m not stressed with the bolt falling out, more just keeping the lock nut on there for safety.

    Great to hear Tuff, and Cav, for the record my driveway is gravel, I actually live across from the local fire station (cant see them being impressed with a burn out) and my work car park is gravel also.  But yes when the time is right and I locate a suitable location said video will be made….
