Still waiting on some new gaskets from Toyota for the Corolla inlet but will hopefully be fitted next week along with the ultra racing c pillar bar that’s finally back in stock and on its way.

I gave the box a small clean whilst it was out and fitted a new aisin clutch, old one didn’t look too worn even though the pedal felt high but the release bearing was a bit buggered so glad that’s been done1339A7CE-8530-42CB-86B0-F66760BA6222.thumb.jpeg.9e1cc334785845e0307dae209b67bb81.jpegA40F28B4-1E8B-438B-8AAC-94F1CE2A5C5E.thumb.jpeg.d2a63f04cc0435a6bccaecc9aadb6042.jpeg4F953331-B9B5-4AEE-A32B-50EA54CD3D54.thumb.jpeg.b3f75dbe54271b3282721dbbd45373d9.jpegAFE70305-7D44-4FE5-A306-408DFFC54CEE.thumb.jpeg.d91c08cfccd1d168417cc2a09d9d1715.jpegFBE94567-1C82-4372-AC7B-751F5BD5C89B.thumb.jpeg.08571279bc2cd13e4eee458fc8425283.jpegbefore33ADC37D-11A9-4623-B601-5E43EFED90D2.thumb.jpeg.f6049412920c32e470d93ff00835cc30.jpegafterFBED172E-B110-4B55-AA3D-900BFC018896.thumb.jpeg.091639a0182941231de7136ee4adf9f5.jpeg

Decided to nip in work this morning and fill the box up with oil, ran it up and the gearing feels loads better so smooth and precise E980B8CE-D96E-4D6D-A393-C6EBC5667A3B.thumb.jpeg.9e6c93402c6970667861099794830f6c.jpeg

It’s just a mock up, it will be bolted with eyelets through the floor with support plates :)

bolting it down to the floor is not a good idea either, in a crash it will rip through the seat and crush you down. You need to add a bar behind the seat at shoulder height

It’s for time attack, what I’m using is perfectly safe and if the plate I’m using rips through the floor it would be the least of my problems. ideally I would mount it to a cage but it’s not having one and doesn’t need one to compete in the class it will be running in but thanks for the concern

let s know how the dyno goes as im keen to see if the corolla mani makes a difference.  If you can get hold of the support bracket then I would as the mani will crack eventually. If you cant find one then I have one that I made until I managed to get hold of a proper one
