Ahhhh Nikck. I am sorry to hear that mate. Terrible news. I think most of us have been there and share your pain. A lot of money down the drain. Sometimes doing the Tassie roads for a week beofre highlights any possible problems (except brakes if you ignore the signs) before hitting the track.  Oh well save the pennies and go bigger and better.

Good luck and keep us posted.
