you need to pour 10 litres in my car first to reach the 1 ton.

The 1 ton will be on duty at the Palar challenge from today onwards.

Default Nissan 4W73 at TPC09

We ran it with the petrol engine. I think the Clutch Cover Assembly is a bit weak, but still was quite fun.

Good to see the 1 tonner after a long time, can't something be done about the rust. I think a good paint job is due now.

Arka, i did not understand the second point..."Top gear sleeve" sounds like part of the gearbox. I though you are changing only the engine, why a new Top gear sleeve ? Any pics to help understand this?

Thanks.
