The story you told me was slightly different . . . . as in you weren't even on the track at the time.

I picked the car up out of my car boot and it slipped and dropped on the ground and broke the $%^&** shock tower.

1 Year of racing with that tower and not a problem and then drop and it broke unbelievable

Mark, if you're reading this, I think this is the only way to break this original rear shock tower. Picard "made it so".

No offence Picard.

Anyway, welcome back.
I've been trying to keep our end up in here but I know nothing about 710's.
In the end I had to resort to annoying D.

Look, it must have been dusty . . . time to replace it anyway, I reckon.

Thanks for the tip - I've been trying to break this thing for the last year
I'll see if the baggage handlers on the way to the Winternats can break it before I give it a go - normally they are experts at breaking things
