  1. Thanks morgey. It’s definitely a huge improvement and it has built in heating. Probably the main reason we took it on if I’m honest! No more cold hands holding even colder spanners
  2. Thanks guys! Hopefully all goes smoothly. We do have completely unrestricted noise away this place which means we can run proper dyno evenings again! So keep an eye out for those too
  3. Afternoon Its dead quiet in the south east section on here! We've moved into a new workshop and we're having a huge open day on the 9th Feb and I'd love to see some starlets turning up. I've only got about 5 in at the minute so I'm feeling a bit low on starlet numbers. We're going to have a few brands we work with turning up to display and hopefully chat discounts too. We're also running a best car of the day competition and launching a massive discount range of our own on almost everything we do to celebrate. Have a look at the lingfield motor company section on here for the address and hopefully I'll see you there!
  4. Afternoon all We've been massively quiet on here and all social media for the last month or so while we've moved into our new premises. Firstly its massive compared to the old place, and we now have our own in house dyno, as well as a proper area for fab work rather than it being in a completely different building etc. Anyway we're having a big open day on the 9th Feb and would love to see a few of you guys down to join us. A few of the brands we supply and work with are coming down as well so it should be a decent day as long as the weather holds up! To celebrate moving up in the world I am going to put together a huge range of discounts on almost everything we do. Keep an eye on our section of the forum for news of that when I work it all out. The new address is Unit 1 Ivydene Ind Estate, Ivydene Lane, Ashurst Wood, RH19 3TN Hopefully we'll see you there! A little pic of the back half of the workshop, gt included
  5. Cheers nick, glad to be back on here after a few years out of starlets.
  6. The fiesta looks sporty! And an FD you say?
  7. Bringing back a dead thread here I know but ed at fusion is great. I am also a dealer of the ME range. Did you get it sorted and tuned in the end? I've tuned a few now and I'm very happy with them but some real world reviews wouldn't hurt!
  8. Afternoon ladies and gents I just wanted to write a quick introduction as to who I am. I've been building starlets for the last decade or so, owning 8 myself. I've had plenty of breaks from starlets but I always seem to be drawn back and I think its time I gave something back to the community. Which leads me to the reason behind this post. Finally after many years working for other people I've started up on my own doing what I love doing, which is building sporty cars. We cover anything and everything but specialise in Jap imports, usually Toyota powered. In the year I've been open I've built 1&2JZ powered BDC pro cars, a V8 converted 300zx and quite a few starlets among other things. I do 90% of the work carried out in house, fabrication work, engine building, tuning etc with really the only outsourced work being machine work. Our new website is constantly being updated with new pictures and videos of the work we are carrying out. We do offer dyno and road tuning, although the preferred method is on a dyno for license preservation reasons! I've worked on loads of ecus over the years but now I try to stick to what I supply. Link, Motorsport Electronics, Haltech and Maxxecu. We do have the most common starlet options listed on the website to make it easy for you guys. I've seen a few posts now about the ME221/442 ecus and I'm happy to answer any questions about them that you might have. The other side of the business is the parts supply, I like to think I'm quite selective about what we offer on the store and I can say that I have tested each brand personally in some form. I'm constantly trying to add more to the range so if you have any suggestions then please let me know and I will see what we can do. Over the next few days I'll add posts about the main things we offer, the ME221/442 ecus and our engine builds for example as well as some of the development parts we are creating on our demo glanza. Anyway, if anyone has any questions please don't hesitate to ask, the workshop is flat out so replies might not be instant at the moment but please do get in touch either on here or any of the other channels. I look forward to working with some of you and helping build some serious monsters. Cheers Jake @ Lingfield Motor Company

    Ep91 bonnet

    I'm in desperate need of a glanza bonnet! Closer to Kent the better so I can collect! colour isn't important but I'd prefer it to be decent ish condition! Cheers
  10. I never understood clutch stages always just gone on the power rating! Just someone who I was speaking to a while back said get a stage 2/3 and as I haven't owned a starlet for a few years just thought I'd title it that. Messaged mattyd again about his anyway so hopefully sorted

    Definitely sent, not yet read though
  12. After a clutch that will handle 230 hp. Doesn't have to be brand new just needs to survive daily use for a couple of months till my car comes off the road. South London would be spectacular but I can get a courier to pick up of needed! Thanks
  13. a green glanza joined the m25 and got in front of me, I was in my white one. Exchanged nods! It looked clean though
