There is a lot of Mikes, Mickeys and Michaels on here
So update, I THINK I had a couple of issues. One was brakes binding, enough to make car think there was something wrong with the power output. I have no grumbling today from the rear end (make own joke here). I've done a couple of 50mph heavy braking sessions in neutral to clear any rust or residue off of the brakes. I'm going to try leaving the handbrake off whilst it is on our very flat driveway and just have it in park.
Cleaning the shifter seemed to help too, going to give it a proper brush off over weekend. And my C Zero has had the shifter modification to allow the gate to select B and C modes. But it was poorly cut out for these two gears so have quickly filed back a bit more room for stick to nestle in when in B mode. And C mode never really appeared as the shifter hadn't been cut back far enough. Another 4mm sorted that and might help the car if was getting confusing signals about being in B or C mode from shifter moving around on edge of both positions.
Guess we'll see if returns when rains again. At which point might be looking at sensors getting wet. Will update if have more issues.
