    here we go again. i love the french they certainly know how to fuck about. Renault are fragmented and abit of a mess . ive got my fingers crossed they can get there act together. that car and engine is starting look good (now Ferrari have been told to stop cheating). i really cant wait for this and next year, IM OFFICIALLY A SEB VETTLE fan. lets see if these young lads are as good as all the hyp now seb has a merc under him and recardo has a merc under him haha. game on guys its going to be crazy. ive got my eyes firmly fixed on the lap times compared to last years,
  2. yeh ill message it you soon. they do look good plus should last along time. cheers i have had some crazy cars most are turbos, but im simply staggered by what this little thing can do. the times its achieving already are super car level, and it does not have to be driven in anger/hard at all to hit them. the handling is also crazy. im really glad i came across them when i did.
  3. Yeh head down and onwards. I was looking forward to getting it dynoed and seeing the mighty torque curve it has/I'm feeling. Plus getting some speed figures recorded. This little thing puts it down and scores very very big figures, for the car it is/cost. How are you doing, and tell me what you've been up to with yours.
  4. Well looks like I'm stuck over seas for now with this covid situation. I've just recently purchased A power enterprise Kevlar cam belt. I really am itching to get back and get driving it as well as fitting some of the new parts.
  5. really enjoying your build, great work. the ct9 b you have there are a rare item. well worth keeping in great condition.

    For me personally I think red bull are clutching at straws hoping for a quick fix with young talent, driving at these speeds in these cars takes experience not raw talent. I'm loosing faith in Christian Horner fast. The team and cars are clearly developed around max another big problem for his team mate as they now need to drive like max to get anywhere. Even thew max is clearly fast this is his 5th season in F1 with no challenge for the title any were to be seen (the dnf king) shows his lack of experience. All Sergio needs to do to beat max is be consistently in the top 5 in
  7. Fantastic stuff. Great work. Keep it up.
  8. Powwer tools oh yeh. Stick this catch can in a cold air stream, and your in business. Great work as always.
  9. Yep nice ep for sure, is that a gt rear spoiler.
  10. Dont worry about time (mine or yours). Take it slow discuss all you need to. I give my time freely, and don't expect anything in return. I enjoy this ALOT.
  11. thanks for sharing, looks like a good track nicely done. ill check out your videos now.
  12. it would be a monster of a vehicle the 3sge and 3sgte engines are power houses. they are also thirsty on fuel the 3sgte runs around 21mpg and the 3sge around 28mpg on a great day. there are afew lads on the corrola owners that have done the swap into the ae101. i would agree with claymore. ive seen to many loved motors go to scrap and money wasted threw complex builds being undertaken. when a build like this are done they take on average around 5 to 10 years to complete. one of the worst things here is to trust someone to do the build for you it rarely gets complet
  13. yeh im stuck in north america for now it look likes with work. i cant wait to get back and see my family. hoping you all are well and getting the jobs done.
  14. Same from me looks well. I think the design & age of the vehicle does suit the orange lenses. Infact both clear & orange work well.
  15. Yeh I'm starting to understand forum's now (I was warned). I've been doing this along time but my first go on these little machines after 1 beat us at brands hatch. This is my first turboed n/a. Message me the others you work on I'd like to check them out.
  16. Yeh the 2xweeks off over Christmas and New have been nice, and much needed. These guys really enjoy Christmas over here. How about your self, I hope you and family are well and have had a good Christmas & new year.
  17. I'm looking forward to see progress on your build. Take your time, it will soon be 2022. I really enjoy yours and other work on these.

    Tech stuff For all the modding mad masive.
  19. Thanks I'm just fine tunning things at present to a comfortable everyday driveable state. You will get a feel for the settings of the brake bias valve mainly in stop and start traffic to much rear causes the car to stop dead on light braking. The brake peddle on these is also adjustable to remove the dead zone. Becarful here adjust this 15deg at a time. To much will bring the brakes on. You will need a little dead zone to allow for heat expantion. Using top grade brake fluid helps again. Great shop. I've been buying off them along time. https://www.mcgillmotorsport.com/adjust
  20. I've updated afew pics threw the build thread Burty. The Nissan cup holders are in there. I'm back home very very soon. I'm hoping the end of the month. I'll get up lots of pics of her then I've also got 5 go pros to do some videos. As well as she's on the Dyno. These will take a little longer as I'm going to get into editing them for good viewing. If anyone can recommend some great editing software to use.
  21. i have but there on my tablet in the uk at present. im not with it i basically placed 2x level type staged bias vales in the 2 brake lines that the starlet has. 1 lines does left front and rear right the other operates right front rear left. ive removed the factory pressure referance valve and routed it threw 2x bias valves that ive joined together so it becomes 1 lever in affect. the lever type valves are designed to be bolted together ive just joined the handles as well by drilling and bolting them together. im hoping to get back at the end of the month. ill get you some pics then.
  22. There off a early 2000 Nissan Almera only slight modding required to fit.
  23. Yep I run mobile 1 fully syn 5w40 threw winter and 10w40 in the months July to Oct (northwest UK), i change it every 6k miles or imediately after track action. I send off a sample to be tested while I filter and boil off the contaminants. If the tests come back good it goes back in after the other oil has done 6k. I'm not running a forged motor. I'm on modified high compression 4efe+t unit.
  24. I'm interested in speaking to the lads and lasses that have experienced the 6 speed boxes. Pros and cons. I'm Sam and loving the c60 cusco lsd , as well as the c160 TRD lsd, it came with. For me the difference was top speed and motorway Cruz rpm the c160 had a bigger top speed as well as lower 70mph Cruz rpm. But very impressed with how these things get you to your target speed very fast, very smooth constant acceleration. great video and explanation of the c60 6speed box in action Armstrong Family - YouTube Stock Differential vs Cusco LSD | C60 Autocross Com
  25. I'm back. I've been away for the Christmas and New year break visiting some old friends over in the states. I've just got back to the hotel and settled back in.
