They usually get bolted on to stop this happening on the jump! A lot of the crowd seemed to think it was planned!!

Yep, deffo some broken torsion bars I'd say. And judging by the tracks... maintenance is not a top priority.

Not impressed, I've always considered this pointless and potentially dangerous :embarrassed:

Looks like the first 432 has broken torsion bar(s) on nearside

 

Either that or it's been pimped and lowered. Next stop is the spoiler and body kit.

Pimped & Lowered..........

 

Funny you should say that........I always fancied a 432 with chromed road wheels & sprockets, metallic paint job, plexi glass dome over the mortar hatch, cocktail cabinet, quad stereo, leopard skin interior, water bed & wide screen TV.:nut:

 

No ? just me then:blush:

 

(too much Starsky & Hutch maybe ?):cool2:

We had a "Pig" with a dome and later a Sultan with a dome.

Both in an active TA Role.

Yeap, tracks w/o pads & busted headlights (all of them?!). Given the condition of this one, would be surprised if it didn't end up as a STUG III/Pz.III VisMod... Seems to be the unfortunate fate of a lot of FV432s..

Just out of interest, what is the minimum number of torsion bars that a 432 can operate on? It must get to a point where the others can't keep it up.

Oddly enough they only seem to convert the really nice, freshly ABRO'd 432s into Stugs!

 

And if I were crushing cars (which I don't) I wouldn't use a 432 with decent track pads either .... :-)

Anything other than the full set has to be asking for trouble, especially if your bump stops aren't in good nick.

I don't think that one has bad track pads, I don't think it has any track pads! Right you are about only the really nice 432s ending up as VisMods...

You're better off without them unless you're on tarmac, and especially if you're on cars! :-)
