  1. We are having some problems with the forum and Cloudflare. It's probably best to turn email notifications off at the moment.

    Multiple Parts For Sale

    We have been having significant issues with Cloudflare and have been working hard to resolve this. It's not been easy. Can I point out that we do not accept links to eBay, you need to put prices and pictures up please.

    Steering Wheel Locks

    Is there any point at all? Given you will not be able to start the car without the key? Okay it may provide a small deterrent, but it's a massive pain to have to grapple with day in day out and putting it on taking it off everywhere you go.

    2nd Gen GT86

    For the speculatists! @Leeky https://www.motor1.com/news/304978/toyota-86-british-green-limited/?fbclid=IwAR0HVGPbtTU66rDaLMnl6vVwLOKqlc5NUiiOItLxjmJdThOiJ3WVyZSF-Ps " For what it’s worth, Toyota is planning a next-generation 86 which will remain a more affordable sports car than the recently introduced new Supra. As a spokesman for the company in the United States told us, “the 86 has been in the Toyota family since 2013 and the plan is that it will continue to be a part of Toyota’s sports car lineup.” All that’s good but bear in mind we won’t see a new 86, or a Subaru BRZ, before 2021. What better way to keep the current model fresh than offer customers a new special edition of the two-door coupe from Japan. In fact, Japan is the key word here as the new Toyota 86 British Green Limited seems to be limited only to the Land of the Rising Sun – the automaker doesn’t mention its market plans for the vehicle, but all the available information about it comes from the brand's Japanese site.

    Schroth Rallye 3 ASM harness

    Ah yes, it's a nut, rather than a bolt. From what I remember we just undid the nut and put the harness eyehole in there. There was enough thread. It's just a bit fiddly.

    It bolts onto the lap belt mounts. There isn't a lot of room but I managed to bolt mine in without removing the drivers seat easily enough. You get longer bolts with the belts.

    New Committee Members

    A bit overdue, but I'd like to welcome @VAD17 aboard to the committee as our Trackday and Event Organiser. As I'm sure you'll agree he has been brilliant at organising track days and local events and we appreciate all his hard work.

    Your comparison are all saloons that started out cheaper and were made more expensive by a halo model. It's not going to be the other way round. We won't see the 2 litre here, given how few Supras will sell. Tada san always said that there will be a three car line up with the GT86 in the middle. We are awaiting what they are going to do about the S-FR type model.

    There have been some forum updates installed, though if it's working for some and not others it is difficult to know. Mine works, first time I've tried it in six months. I'm no IT Geek though, @rob275 is your man.

    I have Tapatalk though never use it. Just tried it, works fine for me. Must be something to do with your log in.

    2nd Gen GT86

    You don't know that it is though. Just because it will available in Japan, does not translate to it being available here. Also a four cylinder Supra is going to be a fair bit above the price point of a GT86, so it's not a replacement.

    Release bearing

    A number of people have complained about noisy release bearings. They can rattle a bit, though a rattle isn't really much to worry about. If they take the gearbox out and find that say the clutch is worn, they are going to put that down to wear and tear, though realistically it's hard to think of what else it could be.

    This is just pure speculation and has no credibility at this point.

    So how does it sound?

    It'll be absolutely fine. I took my car all the way to the old East of Germany and back with a TD manifold, no cats and their resonated exhaust. I've had mine on for 25K miles now, no problem. You won't hear it when cruising, you will hear it when you accelerate on a motorway. I have a serious sound system in mine I admit, was no issue though.
  15. As an absolute maximum, yes. Not really more than 10%.
