    Hey GT86 Crew

    Welcome onboard! Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  4. Track Day - Brands Hatch Indy Track days are back! Even with social distancing rules in place we can enjoy GT86 on track and shout at each other across the pits! Thursday, June 18th (MSVT) £259 Brands Hatch Circuit is a real favourite amongst track day drivers. This Indy circuit is surprisingly difficult to perfect with double apexes at both Druids and Clearways. The swoops and dips add to excitement culminating in Paddock Hill Bend often described as being like dropping off the edge of the world! It should be on the list of must-dos for every track day driver in the country! https://www.msvtrackdays.com/car/circuits/brands-hatch/ Link to book: https://www.msvtrackdays.com/car/calendar/2020/june/18-bh/ Good circuit guide https://driver61.com/circuit-guide/brands-hatch-indy/ Lets see who's going: 1. @VAD17 2. @Kaltorak 3. @AJ124 4. @maurice … + couple non-GT86 friends

    New member - planning mods and trying TSS

    Welcome onboard! You cant go wrong with TD NA tune (or turbo in you want more). I have Gramlight Rays, not as expensive and Lucas at Partbox often has a good deal on them. I have Tein Flex As, popular and very good for the price, both on normal roads and track (although a bit wobbly for my liking beyond 10 clicks from hard). Ksports are pretty good (I had them for nearly 2.5 yrs now), consider Reyland kit though as well. Reyland also do disks for Ksport, which are cheaper and aparently just as good.

  8. I cant count number of times I had the same issue. Even today my 4m old battery died (to be fair have not used the car for over 2 weeks due to cov and prior to that it was a 1.5mile round trip to shop), but at least it opened first time. 11 counterclockwise/ 3 clockwise is about right, and depending on how lucky/ unlucky you are it can take 15-20 mins to unlock (its like continuous and frustrating rocking). This thread has good recommendations tried and tested by many members: - WD40 - Allen Key (I use padded garden glove as well) - applying slightly more force counterclockwise Solar battery charger may be a good purchase for the future. Good luck!
  9. Glad you finally got in [emoji846] Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  10. I had to apply force, particularly counter clockwise (had to limit it though, was afraid of breaking the key). Out of 3 times I tried only 1st took a long time, but I wouldn't want to try locking it and unlocking again. I assume you tried spraying WD40 on the key as well? Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  11. I had same issue (all 3 times before Toyota replaced the battery) - clockwise it was moving about 1/4 or more of the revolution, while anticlockwise only just a bit. 1st time it took me around 20 mins to unlock (i found padded gloves to make it slightly more bearable). I'd say try again, but yeah its very very annoying Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    Will300's Subaru BRZ Build

    AWESOME! Like the new look a lot. Want to order longer wheel nuts as well now for my CR57, but think of L32 instead. Need to decide on colour (was also thinking blue, but don't know if they would look ok with grey car - may be black again). Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    Trackday - Castle Combe - Monday, Aug 3rd

    Trackday - Castle Combe circuit Monday, August 3rd (Opentrack) £175 https://www.opentrack.co.uk/product/castle-combe-monday-3rd-august-2020/ The circuit boasts modern facilities for competitors and spectators, and the resurfaced and reshaped circuit generates what is generally recognised as the closest circuit racing in British motorsport. Castle Combe is located just off the M4 Motorway past junction 17 making it quite easy to get to. https://castlecombecircuit.co.uk/how-to-find-us The circuit is 1.85 miles in length and opened up to racing in 1950 after serving as RAF Castle Combe during the War years. It may look like a simple circuit but it contains two of the best known points on a British Circuit, Avon Rise and Quarry Corner. Both are famous for sorting the men from the boys ! Opentrack operate in a Open pit lane format at Castle Combe and limit the number of cars in attendance, so as to ensure all drivers have plenty of track time. Noise limit is 100Db at 4000 rpm not at 3/4 revs like most circuits.

    Tyre sizes for FI

    8" is probably the minimum you can get away with. 8.5" was suggested when I was getting my FI kit from TD couple years back (mind you I was planning also to track it occasionally). I ended up with 9.5, but tbh think its a bit too wide (I am on 245/40 18). Hope this helps Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
