thanks! i'm going to autocross it as much as possible this year. i'll be ordering brake pads for my larger brakes once i return from my travels, and then it'll be ready to go to putnam park, just outside of indy.

this is not me or my car, just an example of the track. i believe i should be able to hit 120mph on the front straight...

That's a beautiful car. My uncle used to have one. The only thing I don't like about them (and the Porsche Boxsters) is that they have MacPherson strut suspension all the way round. :/

thanks! ideally it would have a more advanced suspension setup, but it works well enough. come out to the next autocross/track day and come for a ride!

Thanks, I may do that. I've never been to Putnam Park. I'd like to go with my Eclipse but I don't really trust it for racing reliability-wise. Maybe after I get an FR-S I can risk tracking it a few times.

1" bore master cylinder acquired



my 91n/a master cylinder has a bore size of 7/8". the 93T master cylinder is 15/16". this should provide a nice, firm pedal once i swap the 93T brakes onto the car.

Nice MR2, nice numbers for CT26, too! Is that exhaust an A'PEXi GT Spec by any chance? Looks like the one I had on my '94T... never shoulda sold my SW20

nothing really new lately. had a busy winter and unfortunately an expensive one, so no new parts for the 2. i'll likely do a cooling system refresh soon, and get it back out on track. the KW's are excellent, and for the price, i think they're extremely hard to beat!

thanks. it's actually the apexi N1, but it's similar enough, i don't think i'll upgrade to the gt spec. selling an MR2 (especially a 94T) is always a regrettable decision.
