Default My GTO is back!!!

Hello Everyone!

I got my gto back yesterday! yay. Did 350kms yesterday and hope to do 1000kms in the next 7 days. Then oil change, head retorque and compression test. A further 1000 kms to go after that then tune and see what it can do!

While at the workshop, it was run into when parked outside and has a nice dent in the side. It is going to be repaired in jan when it get a full colour change.

The hope is to push 400+ hp atw in march and have it all resprayed also.

Glen

That's great news Glen. Normally I wouldn't ask but they are going to pay for that damage right? Also, are they also taking care of you as far as the gearbox damage from our last conversation?

The guy that hit the gto was insured and he has given me a claim number.

I will post more about the build in a separate thread, but a summary would be that on the 16th of Jan the matter is going before the courts.

Well, that sucks mate but I'm stoked you got your car back. There's no shortage of negative feedback on multiple forums if you need some more ammo in court.

yes, I'm a bit annoyed that I have to take it this far, but i reckon I have a good case. I'm just about to start writing up the notes and get them off to our work lawyer to improve a bit.

I've got phone recordings and a log of calls. The main problem is that rpw got rid of the bearings and the oil from the failed engine. This would have proved the case in either direction. They gave me back all the other bearings .... just not the ones that could have proved my case! They did show me them, but I never gave the go ahead for any paid work or to dispose of any parts.

I'm going to make up a post about the whole experience after the court case and put it on here and the other Mitsubishi forums.

The gearbox damage from the first build was paid by me. I should claim that as well, but i'll take that as a lesson learnt, DON'T take anything to a workshop, except if it comes with a good review from the forums.

I can't praise precision automatics enough for the work on the gearbox. It is 200% better than aldo's diff and trans. The seals are now in the correct way, the gears don't grind and it doesn't leak all the fluid onto the ground. Aldo's tried TWICE to rebuild the box and it was worse than when it was dropped off.

Fingers crossed RPW closes down, all the shit shops need to disappear, no more room for people f'ing up everyone's cars and swallowing tens of thousands of dollars (friend of mine is one of those)

Admire how you're seeing it through Glen. Has to turn out good in the end.
Looking forward to seeing how you top orange and black.
