  1. mmmm might have been a bad batch then or i nuked them im looking at these (Mod edit: swear filter bypass removed) hopefully they last a bit longer
  2. I think you misunderstood I get 0 brake fade Brembo pads went from brand new to on the wear indicators in 3 weeks That is the problem I cbf to swap pads every month I'm looking at ferodos race pads
  3. That is the mother of all post revivals right there Last post 2009 ah well yeah my slider pins were corroded cockstiff but with some vicegrips and gentle persuasion i was able to get them out. quick buff up and some copper slip and all was right with the world. if its proper f***d you can get new pagid reconditioned ones from Northampton eurocarparts for ~£140 but you have to take the old caliper in for a trade If you want im only down the road and would be happy to run you there with the old caliper if you don't have a spare car. now onto my problems. Unfortunately when I did the brakes I put some nice new £60 Brembo pads on thinking they would be, idk, good? real story is I bedded them in properly gave it a week of normal driving before i sent it. long story short very little fade, excellent bite, BUT they have been on for under a month and I am nearly on the wear indicators. oh and I set them on fire once. soooo anyone got any recommendations currently looking at mintex and ferodo I could go easier on them but why would I do that. Cheers Tom
  4. Not had a chance to drive the nuts off it just yet but first impressions are good. Unfortunately you do need to drop the subframe to replace the front one and I plan to do the rear one soon. Will update once both are in and I have sent it a bit
  5. Ordered I couldn't resist Looking forward to driving round corners and not rolling round Plus it would be nice to be able to put power down mid corner without one tyre fireing it Will keep you updated
  6. Before I get these I was just wondering if anyone has used them or have any experience with them? My car is a 2004 3 door facelift Tsport. I figure it should make a good improvement to the handling of the car based on the amount of body roll I get currently but I don't want to make the understeer tendency any stronger / more unpredictable. If nobody has tried them then I guess I will be the ginny pig and have a go in the name of science.
  7. I have the metal doubble din and the mount is much more solid and no squeeks a bit of an unsightly gap but will try fixing that soon. Interms of wheel controls I have a Sony radio that auto detects wheel inputs from a 3.5mm jack wired across 3 harness pins Worked first time ez Unfortunately when you turn the lights on it must shift a register or something because all the buttons stop working apart from the volume up which becomes volume down Not sure if anyone else has experienced this or knows how to fix?
  8. It is a fully synthetic 5w 30 I am thinking of trying a 10w 40, I know some of the honda boys run 0w 50 so I figure going to a 40 for testing purposes is ok. As a side note I took the gauge out as I couldn't see it from the drivers position and if possible I will be re locating it to a more visible spot
  9. Update: it is definitely dropping From 6 bar down to about 2 bar when lift hits then in lift it wavers around 2 to 3 bar till redline My first random stab in the dark is oil sloshing in the pan?? Doesn't seem to make sense though as it is a short sharp drop when lift hits. I am guessing this isn't normal but I don't actually know so if any of you guys have any input that would be appreciated.
  10. Hi I'm fairly new to the Toyota scene and have a question. Recently bought a tsport and it drives nice, it has a aftermarket oil pressure gauge of deubious quality, which in all honesty is more of a burden as its got me worrying. From cold it's at about 7 bar at idle and when warm it drops to 0.7 bar. All fine and within spec, however when hitting lift it appears to rise with revs like normal then drop upon hitting lift. Not got anything more scientific then that for now as the dial is in a stupid spot so will need to borrow a mate to film it. TLDR: has anyone else noticed a oil pressure drop when lift engages? And if it's not normal what could cause it? Finally not even 100% sure it isn't just the **** wireing job shorting the sensor out
  11. Hi Just bought a Corolla Tsport this weekend, I've got a few things to fix on it so I have no doubt I'll be asking some questions Thanks Tom
