the only bad point is that I'll have to take it easy for 500miles after it's all fitted. After that it'll be foot down, head pinned to the back of the seat again.... can't wait !!! :D

It's been about 8 weeks since I was last able to do that !

Yeah.. I had a clutch on order from fensport for about 6 weeks !! got annoyed in the end and bought one elsewhere.

what bits ??

The flywheel, clutch and LSD ??

The garage is fitting them all tomorrow/wednesday.

Or are you on about other bits ?

I'm a mechanical !Removed!... the only things I've done to the car myself is...

Fit rev3 rear lights

Fit rev6 rear lights

fit TRD short shifter

fit Momo Steering wheel

fit Stereo

Fit rev5 spoiler

I think that's about it. Anything else I've got the garage to do.... lol

alot cheaper than other placed I tried tho. That's why I went with them, and because the owner owns a Supra TT and does the work on that. So I have some confidence that he knows what he's doing.. lol

I got quoted £150+VAT for the clutch and £100+VAT for the LSD. The flywheel won't add that much more onto the bill, so it's a decent price.

yeah.. I got quoted £350+VAT for the clutch alone from some places !!!

I was driving past the garage in a small town near me when I saw a Supra and MR2 parked outside it. It's not a performance garage etc, but the fact those 2 cars were parked outside it made me go in. Glad I did.

They'll have the car for two days tho... that's not good... but I suppose I shouldn't have so much stuff to get done.. lol

lol... well I'm driving down to wales near the end of the month. I'm going to see the Chillis in concert in Cardiff !!! Should be sweet.

Then upto somewhere else for a night.. then upto liverpool for a couple fo nights for a stag weekend.

Will be fun... and if I havn't by then, I certainly will have covered the 500miles needed to. I'm thinking it would probably be cheaper getting the train tho instead of paying for the petrol costs for the trip !

So am i, back out next friday :D

Jim, come to the big meet at Santa Pod on the 19th & 20th. You should have the 500 miles in by then (well you will have when you get there :lol: ). I can see it now, in the left hand lane we have Jimlad and in the right hand lane we have Bibbs, that would be fun to watch :yes:

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
