Hey guys,
I'm in need of urgent help if anyone is down near holyhead, I'm broken down on the a55 towards Bangor trying to get to mgt in Birmingham, if anyone is near holyhead with a recovery truck I'll pay to get a recovery to Birmingham. Or if anyone know someone who'd do it let me know ASAP because my battery is dying fast
Thanks
Steve

Thanks mate, car is safely at mgt now, missed my flight home but the recovery guy is giving me a lift back to holyhead to grab the ferry home, next time I drive it it'll be a fire breathing monster :)

That was very unlucky Stephen.

How did you got on on the ferry? Have you a front splitter on your r34, I'd be worried about gettin on board without making bits of it

I literally had just collected the car from the bodyshop at 6pm that evening and drove straight to the ferry, the bodyshop hadn't refit the nismo side skirts or the front splitter yet so I had no issue with scraping etc, the guy who towed me that night bent my track rod into shit though so I'm claiming back some of what I paid for the tow, I was a little worries driving up those steep ramp so to the ferry though, I felt as though the clutch could slip it's hard to get a feel for it after not driving it for so long.
On the bright side the guy who towed me this morning was an absolute legend, even gave me a lift back to holyhead to grab a ferry after I'd missed my flight home from Birmingham, and to make it worse the car started first turn of the key when I got to mgt, I had a feeling i would've got it started with a boost but my powerpack was dead and neither of the recovery trucks had a booster

Yeah it's an impressive lump, did you see the size of the oil cooler, it's mahoosive, I'm raging I never took any pics while I was there but I was wrecked tired and trying to get back to ireland so didn't have much time, what did you think of the paint job?
