Updates on the Albins?

No.  Over 12 weeks now and no eta to date.  Was supposed to have it by now.   Joke. I just this afternoon enquired about cancelling.  

Muppets.

Albins have moved into the defence industry sector and since this move there customer service regarding their sequentials has gone to poo.

Imagine the lead time in the event you need replacement parts

best of going with a samsonas mate! They are used in all the TRP shop cars and their after sales service is pretty spot on

+1 for Samsonas. Can't fault the box nor the customer service.

Only downside is if parts aren't in stock they need to come from Lithuania but even that is faster than Albins at the moment...

Case on its way for Anodizing and things are moving.

At end of the day - do I really need a Albins, Samsonas, Hollinger etc?  No. 

Car has never seen a track day, drags, etc.  Occasional street driving, cruzin, etc - and back in the garage.

Its way over kill for what I will ever need - but - hoping I will never have box issues again (at least not for a very long time).

I am setting up the internal oiling system on the Albins to run to a rear diff cooler (Z Tune style)....  again huge overkill for me - but fark it ;) will be functional and look amazing.  I have also slightly tweaked the shifter /strain gauge setup/look to what's offered standard.

Adding a new Motec ecu and c1212 dash etc. when the box goes in.  (thanks to Moray).

Ill just chill and wait - I'm sure this box will be more than I ever expected or needed!

Its a investment (that's what I tell myself so I don't cry) ;)

Is the case the issue, because that's not made by Albins, I figured Albins is the hold up?

Albins makes the case - they send to Platinum - they anodize and send back for gear set to be installed.
