So I went to the track friday night.. didn't have the best of luck. I'll just copy the two posts:<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>DougK</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">fragged the diff in the T5R. Going down to a buddies shop in about an hour to access the damage (he just happens to have an extra m56 laying around praise allah). Well... I'm pretty sure its the diff<p>I just could not get the car to work for me at the track last night. Best time was a 14.2 @ 105 on street tires/trim. Put it on the scale with all my tools, theresa riding, jumper box (battery is deciding not to hold a charge), stereo... and ofcourse my fat ass the weight was just about 4000lbs <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/redface.gif" BORDER="0">ops: <p>I wasn't even really abusing the car that hard. My second to last run wheel hopped for litterally the first time ever. Maybe 3-4 "hops" ... came back to the staging lane. Went over a bump wierd thought I heard the suspension rubbing. Came up to the line again, wheel hopped again, shifted and drove fine all the way down the track. Let off the gas, put on the brakes, turned off the track and the car wouldn't go into second. Started making intresting noises when turning. :grrr: <p>oh well. Tis life... Im more just dissapointed in the slow times than anything else. Though my 2.8 60' time run was priceless. I did manage (on my first run, honestly probably best of the night) a 2.35 60' time. Pacific raceway keeps the first 150' or so prep'd way better than Sac Raceway.<p>Well... wish me luck :**(</TD></TR></TABLE><p>I broke it at 9:30PM...<p>I had it fixed by 9:15PM the next day... here was the follow up<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>DougK</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"><br>good news is, Doug 1, Volvo 0.<p><IMG SRC="http://www.pbase.com/dkauer744/image/64699437.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Snagged the ring and pinnon from a spare (97) m56H. Transfered the ring gear and spiders to my carrier (mine has the tone ring for the speedo sensor), overhauled the trans as best we could. I did notice an intresting change from year to year. My 95 '56H had steel shift forks with plastic bushings bonded to it where it rides on the selectors. The 97 box had brass forks with no bushings. Took those put it mine, checked clearances put it all back together. Took about 10 hours from putting the car on the lift till when I drove home. I swear to god the "new" box shifts nicer than before.. but after 10 hours of work I think the fact it just drove made me feel happy.<p>The upside though is, I did get to fix a couple nagging issues while I had the subframe off and finally got to steam clean the bottom of it clean.
