What a beast aye :))
The car was purchased with 2 known faults: Bad turbo and gearbox. These have been replaced. The only other work needed on it has been some rust work around the taillight assemblies.
The drive shaft assembly was modified to incorporate a viscous coupling. This enables 4wd to be utilised all the time regardless of road surface and no danger of 'screwing up' the drive system due to uneven rotation speeds of the front and rear wheels. e.g. When cornering, the front wheels scribe a larger arc therefore must rotate quicker than the rear wheels. The viscous coupler allows minute slip because of this. Should a front wheel skid, the unit locks up and power is transferred to the rear wheels.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
