An aprentice & you got a 6k car....i'm jealous! I had a MZ TS150 at that age (for those of you that dont know thats a very cheap badly made eastern bloc motorbike with a square fuel tank that you crushed your nuts on everytime you braked hard...thats assuming you didn't fall off due to the non-grip tyres)

ok maybe i weent off a bit and im sorry. maybe i went a bit off on one and im sorry for that.

i work hard for what i've got and my apprentership hasn't been easy at all!
im just saying all i wanted was help and people are telling me how i drive and they have never seen me!

re: Broke my driveshaft???

Clemo dude.... join the circle, better on the inside pis*ing out donchathink?

Start again, the regulars here will help anyone that is honest and truthful...

We can all smell rats & bullshi8 a mile off, now you may have been unlucky, developed a mechanical breakage through manufacturer defect, and if so your Warranty will cover it.

What the guys are telling you is what your dealer will be thinking....

Young lads do reckless things with cars, particularly low powered cars.

Get it fixed and hold on till the car is paid for, you will gain experience that way and then you can buy a more powerful car.

The kind of damage you're describing doesnt happen with revving Clemo... it comes from heavy clutch dropping for quick get-aways at traffic lights, or beating the synchro-mesh through the gears, or changing down far too early...
Thanks steve119 thanked for this post

re: Broke my driveshaft???

What aftermarket wheels have you got on? Chances are they are heavy as fook so dealership will say the extra stress that they have put on drivetrain components have caused it to go.

hey, I've done it myself occasionally but as they say, everything in moderation!

and matt, seeing as I've the same engine as him then will I likely have probs if I changed from standard alloys to aftermarkets? as you know I've got the sporting and think hes got the GP trim Grande!
