And the good fortune comes to an end! After a novice track session- 30mins and a 120miles round trip to Bas Vegas she is now not a happy girl.

Had her up on standa lst night, sounds like the wheel bearing on the drivers side rear is on it way out, and possibly the gearbox shaft bearings.

So time to start buying more parts!

Going to grab the bearings from Tegiwa with the NTN stamp. Or the Timken ones

Hopefully a simple fix!

The gearbox bearings are a little more trouble...

Unlucky pal at least its not engine related, it dose sound like the noise i had when my wheel bearing went, quick fix possibly hub nut loose. i also opted to put in some arp wheel studs when i changed the bearing out

Gearbox i would just go down the replacement route and rebuild the whiney one when you get chance

hope you get it sorted without to much down time

I am not going to lie - I am happy as larry! Took the car to Redhill Honda, they gave her a general health check, checked the hub nuts, checked and compared the diff play against the other cars there....and then retorqued the rear wheel nuts. Problem solved.

1. I am pretty stupid and missed the obvious.
2. Martin @ Redhill was right - start with the simple and the obvious!
3. Dan aka (TangoVtec) suggested they worked them selves loose as I had the wheels fully refurbed in Jan, with the heat from the track day the paint most likely softened and caused the slight play.

Either way - HAPPY DAYS!

Now back to that long list of jobs!
