Motor (Australia) - - THE VENT -

Thank you for the trip down mem­ory lane in your Lion King (MO­TOR, Novem­ber 2017) is­sue. I, like thou­sands of other Holden fans, feel so sad this has hap­pened and felt that your 60-page spe­cial fea­ture sec­tion gave due credit for some very un­der­es­ti­mated cars.

One thing I’m a lit­tle dis­ap­pointed about is the writer on page 86 says the A9X’s steer­ing rack was welded to the front sub frame when it was in fact solidly bolted to the front cross mem­ber. What went wrong there?

Mal Irv­ing, via email You’re right, steer­ing gear was di­rectly mounted to the chas­sis. We are truly sorry. And as an out­fit that aims to be cor­rect as pos­si­ble at all times, we are as an­noyed as you. We’ve con­sulted the per­pe­tra­tor and it ap­par­ently was a slip of mind. We’ll thumb the screws into him for you.

I drive a 400Nm front-driver, it takes skill to avoid wheel­spin, but I call it fun!
