The funny thing with blogging or keeping a diary is, that you have to be pretty firm about keeping it up to date, making a habit of even the most boring news? I have practically missed the whole summer on here and in some respects missed the point of what the blog was about, which is me, not you!
Still anyway enough of my musings on the subject, lets get to something fresh on the table.
HICAS Lock Out
It was never my intention to remove the HICAS (rear wheel steering) from the car. However randomly I do get the warning light pop up just to say 'hello'. Naturally I have fiddled no end with such convincing things such as cleaning connections and light oil spray. The problem would be impossible to diagnose as I have a APEXi Power FC ECU on the car and can't easily generate a fault code. Nor can I say I have tried that hard as it quite takes my fancy to junk the whole of the HICAS system in favour of a Driftworks Lockout Kit (or HICAS Eliminator as they call it).
Kit including Toe rods, Polybushes, Brackets and Mounting Hardware.

As mentioned I am holding off fitting just yet, as there are some other suspension geometry parts I'm interested in. Additionally as tracking will be required, it would be a better idea to fit all the bits in one go, rather than keep chuck in tracking (wheel alignment) costs at £100 (UK Pounds) a go.
