  1. Bump. Track days are going to be starting again very soon. Bag yourself some uber rare and light JDM rims with matching track rubber!

    Moy

    Not legitimately. You’ll need at least one Catalytic Convertor to pass the emissions test. The first Cat is part of the Manifold. The 2nd Cat is on the midpipe under the gearbox. Probably the 2nd is cheaper to buy, easier to fit and then easier to remove again after your MOT if you want to go back to catless. I just remembered I have a Factory 2nd cat out in the Garage that I removed from my car at 16k miles. Would sell it to you if you are interested. Just drop me an IM if you are (would need collecting from Reading)
  3. Looks like a TV aerial to me. I had the exact same thing in my Aristo

    Help Trying to get pop and bangs

    Mine is is late 2014 car running Cosworth Stage 1.2 Map. Now I come to think about it... when it was stock it never popped so must be a characteristic of the map or the Cosworth exhaust system.

    Help Trying to get pop and bangs

    Yep, usually on hot summer days on track once the exhaust is hot enough its constantly popping on overrun and through flat upshifts. Its not the end of the world. As long as its not doing any harm I can live with it.

    Im the opposite. I wish I could tune out the pops and bangs I get on track days when its really hot (without affecting performance) lol

    Covid lockdown battery issues

    Deciding on Oil Weight

    I do around 10 track days a year. I have only 1x oil change done per year and its done by Toyota using the standard oil they recommend for these cars. I have a Cosworth baffled sump but no oil cooler and I drive the car hard - but I never do more than about 10 minutes of full on hard driving. I come in for a cool down on a regular basis. But I check the oil before and after every track day. The level never goes down and its always as clean/clear as the day it goes into the engine. I think Toyota designed the cooling/oil system on these NA cars to be more than tolerant to the amount of abuse you can give them on track. But I just stay mindful that too many hard laps without a break is bad for any car.

    18 inch light wheels

    I have these uber light 17 inch Advan’s for sale with AD08R’s if they are of interest - Stock size rims and tyres so they dont upset the great factory handling of the car. But much lighter than the factory rims with super grippy rubber.
  11. Hey guys, Im in the market for a lightweight propshaft if anyone has one for sale. Aluminium or Carbon - Would be interested in either. Cheers! Leeky
  12. I always use my local ChipsAway for dents and bodywork. Always very competitive on price and the quality of the finish is perfect. According to Google there is a ChipsAway in Derby.

    MFactory 4.67 final drive

    Cool. Thanks for the info. That makes total sense now as the auto has longer gearing than the manual.

    MFactory 4.67 final drive

    Yeah mine is purely a track car so the only road miles it see are between home and track. So fuel economy isn't an issue for me; just curious. The top speed of a stock auto 86 is 130 according to Toyota but I don't know if thats a gearing limit or a power based limit. Assuming its a gearing limit then with a shorter final drive the top speed may drop to something like 120 but I dont know for sure.

    Cheers guys. Sorry for hijacking the thread. Just that I saw kaisersalsek had this diff on an auto and I was pondering this as a mod for my auto.
