Not sure as I haven’t got a left hand one to compare. Certainly the rubber surround and the mounting bracket are handed.

Yes the cores are "handed" too. The mounting points are at the front and the block underneath faces the centre of the car.

If you're in need of a left oil cooler, I've still got the one from the red car I had - it's a bit bashed from stone chips but was working none the less. Free to a good home :thumleft: ;) can dig it out the box and grab a pic if you need!

Really sorry to see this

Raced (and won) at Lydden many times in years gone by and this really is a strange one, indeed I dont ever remember seeing a crash at that point .

As you say, you had some ABS issues, but looking at it I wonder if your rear pads had worn out and given up, leading to having front brakes only.
Have a look as this may be your reason because with no rear pads the ABS system would not know whats going on and just lock the fronts up.

Something different, can I ask how you have all that telemetry up on the screen like you have.

Thanks Clive. I will definitely check the rear pads.

The telemetry comes from Racechrono app in my phone.
It's linked to the obd Bluetooth module.
There are different settings and all sorts that can be added.
There are different ways but it's more long winded...using a go pro.
The editing can be done on the phone and uploaded straight away from the track...if needed.

Progress!

She's back on the ground.
I need to get the anti roll bar link.
Then the suspension is back together.
Hopefully can start the inside clean sometime as there is glass everywhere!
Then I can get her in my ramps and check what else needs replacing.ImageImage

Oh yes please. If you don't mind.
The driver's side one needs replacing.
I think I'm going to sorn it and bring her back next year... There's loads of work to be done.

That's a point actually - are you in need of front windows (just glass)? As I still have those too from mine and I was just about to get rid of them :lol: unless you already have some sourced, but if not let me know and I can bring them to a meet to pass them along either to you or someone closer to your location ;) :D

My front windows are still good thanks.
The small side ones both shattered and the main windscreen.
Thanks for the offer.
