  1. So after having the gearbox built up and fit, the new action clutch kevlar kit, and the CC lightened flywheel, I've now reached 350 miles on it all and just flushed out the initial transmission oil for new, it's all bedding in nicely now just the clutch to go easy on until around 1000 miles then I can give it hell as much as I want.

    Before all of these upgrades I had an issue going into 1st gear, I had to force it in, my clutch pedal was stiff in both directions, it would crunch from 1st-2nd only at the top end 6000-7600rpm that happened for months any time I tried to hammer it without wheel spin, and then it also developed a crunch from 2nd-3rd 3 months ago again only at the top of the band, 3-4 weeks ago I decided to do a load of pulls against my mates honda's for a comparison of the performance before and after the overhaul, after around 15 crunchy pulls I completely lost 3rd gear, as it was coming out the following week I didn't care anyway.

    Since swapping the clutch master ( honda revision3) and slave cylinders, clutch/fly, gearbox, all of the issues are gone now, it shifts into gears with ease, the pedal is nice and light disengaging, a firm resistance as it engages, no crunching anymore as you would expect although a little notchy at times, and 1st gear is nice and easy to put in where before you really had to force the thing.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the condition of my old box inside once Bill (the wizard gearbox builder) opens it up, the stock clutch wasn't that bad after we had a look, the pressure plate might have been failing if anything, not disengaging fully that's my thoughts on why it started to ruin the syncros over time, the car would rock forward when parked up in neutral pressing the clutch down fully and trying to go into 1st gear, you could feel it move the car which isn't normal.

  4. Sawn you at TOTB and Croft Time Attack if I realised you where a club member I would have come and said Hi. No doubt you'll be around next year so I'll keep an eye out for you.

      Hoping to be at both again this year my daughter was working with the Eurospec team at both. She even ran her RS Megane 185 diesel at TOTB. But had the pleasure of a couple of runs in the Eurospec GTR time attack car.

  6. this is an incredible build. love the colour too.. not many people would dare go close to a brown but the shade of your care is mesmerizing..
  7. do you have a link to which resistors you are using?
  8. You sure have gone to town on this, very nice indeed :Smile:
  9. how did you get around having the airbag light on the dash.for mot
    any idea of weight?
    1. Accord-Brit Avatar
      I bought an airbag light resistor off ebay, the light is back on the dash after removing the front passenger airbag so i'll have to get another resistor ordered for that one, still not had the car weighed yet, it's a hell of a lot lighter than standard though I know that, the seats alone!
