PM me if anyones interested

Anyway back on topic

not much happen mods wise over the last month or so but did get the gear box oil changed to redline mt-90 which has made a very nice difference to the box and gear selection.

Apart from that a few parts have been collected in the spare room :wink: which I'm hoping to get on this weekend if I can get to my friends garage.
I picked up some Mintex pads as mine are getting a bit low and and also some new disc's to go with them, got some HEL brake hoses to go on to, so bit of a brake up grade and a TRD clutch line from Nick

few pics

Well we got halfway through doing the brakes on Saturday got all the fronts on didn't take to long to get the calipers off but getting the discs off was a bit harder, 1 side we got the impact gun and managed to get the disc off using the 2 jacking bolt holes on the discs the other side it snapped the bolts off in the holes so a big hammer was used to encourage the disc off a bit. Also got the HEL brake hoses fitted on the front and the TRD clutch hose.
At the moment I'm still bedding the fronts in, pedal feels firmer but I put this down to there being less movement in the pads.
I can't really say for sure about the clutch hose but the combination of the recent gearbox oil change and the new hose fitted there's defiantly a great improvement in gear selection I've found in my set up.

Pics to follow

Cool BTW are your braking lights supposed to flash under heavy braking? Are they linked to the ABS or something? Really tripped me out at one point driving behind you and at one point only one was flashing!! Mental car!!! :lol:

the brake lights flash when under heavy braking

The led rear lights I have have a pendulum type switch which when it makes under heavy braking it makes the rear lights flash. I need to have a look and see if I can wire to 2 lights together so they both flash at the same time.

Thanks for the comments.

Since putting the 18s it's changed the stance of the car so may just drop the front down a bit.
