  1. Engine mounted up. No real places to front or top mount, but been assured base and back is strong enough by Synergy. Car is now off at Edwards Motorsport getting the turbos mounted and exhausts made. Full stainless going in, but fun will be the angle of those exhaust ports, damn near straight down and yet still need to find space to fit in the twin Borgs... Likely take a while to get the car back, so may be a month or so until it can then start being built up.

    SOLD

    [SOLD] TRS 4 Point Harnesses

    If UK, then yep, no problem.
  4. 60mm deep. Supplied with fan. 100GBP + postage or pickup from County Durham.
  5. Used, pair of TRS harnesses. Aircraft buckle release, clip on ends and reverse lap adjusters. 175GBP new each from Demon Tweeks. For sale at 100GBP for the pair + postage or pickup from County Durham.
  6. Swapping out the back housings on the turbos. The standard ones might give some issues at the 12kRPM we're aiming for... both turbos are water cooled, also running the speed sensors. Quite looking forward to hearing these things sing.
  7. Tbh, mine was pretty extreme, not quite anti-lag but getting close to sounding like it...Along with a gunshot of a flat shift. Potentially made worse by addition of boost. Signs were that the idle just rising, and rising, every few drives. Until it became ridiculous at which point the culprit was obvious. Swapped them out and not had an issue in the two years of driving since.

    AIM Smartycam

    Used but in full working order. Aim SmartyCam setup. Plug into your MXS/MXL, automatically records according to criteria you set and can overlay the data directly from the display. Supplied with split power/date feed and extended mic (I got the longer cable so it could fit onto the roll cage behind the driver) and USB cable. Put in a memory card, plug into your MXS/expansion hub and you're good to go. Spec of unit available at : -http://www.aim-sportline.com/en/out-of-production/smartycam/index.htm 210quid including postage, or pickup from Maidenhead.
  9. Set of brand new steel throttle butterflies. Vast improvement in strength over the standard ones - I had previously bent my standard ones simply from the pops/bang/backfires (photo further below) - a set of these and been good ever since. These are a spare set I had. Simply slip out your old ones, pop these ones in and have no fear of any runaway idle or snapped butterflies. For sale a brand new unused set. $149USD+ shipping new, for sale for 65quid inc postage or pickup from Maidenhead . What can happen with standard butterflies...
  10. May have finally made some headway on the fly-by-wire clutch route. The quickest option, would be simply to get the AP or ShifTec item (http://libertyvt.com/clutch-control-unit/), but at 4,000quid a pop it really is out of the question. I looked into the 'duck clutch' system which is used on various disabled-driver modifications, but none of the suppliers seem willing to sell it on it's own and I'm not sure if it would be ideal anyway. Also, still comes in over 2,000quid when done. Various OEM items are potentially available, the SmartCar, new Fiesta, one of the Vauxhalls all use some form of electrically activated clutch. However, the actuators would need hacking into their proprietary code and a whole heap of DIY efforts that would be months of faffing about. So I was about to give up and assign the clutch paddles to indicators or something but then came across MME Motorsport (https://www.facebook.com/mmemotorsport/) quite randomly on Facebook. They have developed their own system (attached below). They seem keen and the price is around 1,000Euros. So still expensive, but a damn site closer to sensible. Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll be going with their solution to enable full launch control with clutch actuation, automatic clutch control (which may take a little while to program of course) and clutch use through the paddles... ca-03-asm2.pdf
  11. The post above that one, of the rear suspension
  12. Absolutely, pic of it in the post above
  13. Front calipers are AP from a Formula 3 car, made to fit by Siltech. Can see the trigger wheel for the speed sensor/traction control poking out there. (chassis is as yet untouched obviously, just mounting everything up for fitment). They just about fit under a set of Compomotive CXRs, but I think for safety, we'll be sticking with the original plan of Force Racing rims... Lightened rear discs from Siltech, fun will be trying to get the AP calipers (from the front of an Elise) to fit onto the rear now!).

    Flat carbon fibre sheet

    3mm solid carbon is going to be a lot harder to puncture than honeycomb with 0.3 or 0.6mm each side... (heavier too mind you).
