Re: T50 strength?

Driven sensibly, maybe..its an old transmission which has done its time for many..gotta admit,with those available HP/torque numbers it's hard to resist.

Re: Scraping noise problem. Help please

Vibration will be the issue if it's your DS.. & you can tell if it's your rear wheel bearings,,it will have a noticable howl & then radiate into the car. Pull the rear brake pads off & see what they look like..maybe they're not wearing in right to the rotors?
