  1. il film it tonight and put it on youtube you can count and see for yourself. i get into lift in second every time.
  2. All im adding to this post is that i know my car to be alot faster than 7 seconds to 60, and as farhanali89 said its all about using the clutch its no use changing into second as fast as you can because that will just result in buggering up the syncros and blowing up the gearbox i should know iv done it lol trick is to hold the cluch down just abit longer not many people know this and when you dont get into lift in 2nd gear you probably lose about half a second to a second
  3. Dont even get me started on car insurance haha been driving for 4 years and iv yet to see it drop below £1000 lol, im paying 1600 at the minute and im 22 with 1 years no claims and 3 points
  4. Providing you check your oil before you know you are going to be driving harder than usual and that you dont select the wrong gear ie going into 2nd doing about 90mph you shouldnt really have any troubles with the engine
  5. Thanks, will be taking a look at this on the weekend me thinks providing the weather is nice. at the minute it only seems to do it when cold.
  6. 1. Started my car up this morning and right after the starter motor had engaged and had cranked the engine, it made a funny metalic scraping sound almost like it didnt disengage for about a second. does anyone know where the starter motor is located obviously its somewhere round the flywheel but is it easy to access? . 2. I have a rather annoying squeek sound which i believe is coming from the exhaust / heatshield it happens everytime the engine moves ie pulling off changing gear etc. does anyone know where i can get replacment heatshields? or any advice on how to fix this issue? For those of you who dont know my car is a CTS 54 plate with 56,000 on the clock. Thank you for you time
  7. looks amazing mate and i mean the car as a hole not just the brakes haha :P
  8. Car is now sorted with a gearbox that has only done 24,000 miles. Gear changes feel nice and stiff almost like new and no grinding into gears no more, the only issue i have with it is that there is a slight whine when in first gear, my old one probably did it but i can remember lol can anyone confirm this? ;)
  9. already ahead of you mate lol did that lastnight he wants £300 its 2005 model and its got 67,000 on the clock iv found one today for £350 delivered to my door and thats only done 24,000 miles on a 04 plate so im going for that one and it comes with 3 months warranty
  10. Yeah hes a top bloke aswell my mate has already done business with him buying the gear knob
  11. Crunched into 2nd gear as the syncro is buggered and it just went bang :(
  12. Anyone got a spare gearbox as mine kind of went boom last night?
  13. As the title says i am after a corolla t sport gearbox?
  14. managed to retrieve the bolt with my fingers :o after i paid £8.50 for bolt extracting drill bits (always the way) so now its just a case of getting a bolt from toyota in the morning thank god for that
  15. Just been out changing my brake pads when disaster srikes and my heart sank as i have snapped one of the bolts that holds the caliper in place what would be the easiest solution? :( Thanks
  16. Also, Just thought of another one which is coolant change? i think that would be handy :P
  17. Gearbox oil is an interesting one as mine needs changing and i havent a clue how to do it lol and maybe one for changing the aux belt as that needs doing aswell haha
  18. Oh dear god....i swear some people have more money than sense
  19. exactly the same its friggin annoying, my m8 Omasis' on here has a corolla t sport and we have tried it with that however that is fine never not gone into the lift no matter the harshness of the pull off!!! Yep we even drove each others cars (on a private road) it looks like to me that the speedo doesnt update quick enough therefore making the engine think your still sat there revving and mine has never done it
  20. The warranty was with the AA and as mentioned above has now ran out so would it be toyotas fault for the parts failing so quick?
  21. Cant be the clutch mate when the gearbox was off getting rebult i had them fit a fidanza lightened flywheel and a trd uprated clutch plate and cover in feb cost me £800 lol and that was in feb-mar time. and it doesnt crunch into every gear its only second going in at high revs and coming down into 2 at any revs above 2500. and 3rd gear only crunches when its cold once warmed up its fine
  22. Im not complaining im just after advice on how i can sort my issues mate but i can see your point. bare in mind my car gets the most expensive oil which is checked daily and changed every 8000 miles and i dont go above 3500k until the temp gauges is on half, i wouldnt say i give my car abuse and im sure some of you have hit the rev limiter before. The cars are designed to be driven hard otherwise they wouldnt of brought the lift in a 6200 to the limiter and im sure iv read somewhere that these engine had rigorous test where by they had it boucing off the limiter for 30 odd hours and it was fine (dont quote me on that one)
  23. Guilty. the person i dropped off was my boss I was demonstrating to a mate how traction control doesnt work, i very rarly boot it to be honist cant really afford to and it was more like 5 times in 1st and 3 times in second. What corolla you got?
  24. It Was done under warranty which has now ran out but i was advised that there was a 12 month warranty on all parts does this mean the work should get done for free if the parts have fair ie i wont have to pay labour?
