  1. Surely someone of you can confirm whether or not the Avensis Calipers bolts straight on to the Corolla T-sport?
  2. Hi Guys I have been looking around for Corolla performane brake upgrades. The straight forward option everyone seem to go for is fitting grooved discs and performance pads. job done. I have already been down this route with some ferodo DS2500 Pads which I actually liked very much. However I have now found this website showing a German dude fitting 295mm Brakes from the Avensis on the Cellica: http://www.nipponpower.de/t25brakeeng.html To my knowledge the Cellica and the T-sport brakes(275mm) are identical apart from the disc hole pattern: Cellica using 5x100 the Corolla using 4x100. So, redrilling the Avensis discs to 4x100 would make this conversion possible. Have any one done this? Experiences? I do a far bit of track day work so I would imagine a possitive effect going from 275mm to 295mm diameter. On the downside then I can't really find many performance pads for the Avensis? So, yeah I basically just need to hear if any of you have done this or if any of you can confirm whether or not the calipers will bolt straight on to the corolla?
  3. Had the T-Sport Dynoed Yesterday Result was 150.1KW= 204.1HP(PS)= 201.3BHP Not bad really!
  4. Yeah the stock suspension is a bit to the comfy side! Don't forget to upgrade the shocks with the springs! I opted for Bilstein B8's and I am well happy, they are controlled but still comfortable, so a good track/road compromise. Konis should also be good. If I was only using the car on track I would probably have bought some quality coilovers, but they are just too hard for everyday use.
  5. Just a couple of High Res Photos. The Car behaved beautifully!
  6. I only opted for R888 as I have a dedicated set of wheels for track use. If I had to choose a tire for both track and road I would go for the Yokohama Advan Neova AD08. re body roll, after I installed the eibach/bilstein B8 combination I don't have any problem with roll. Have either of you upgraded your rear ARB too? I fitted a Progress one to mine at the same time as the Eibach springs and body roll is virtually eliminated. Yes. I have a progress bar too and also a strutbrace

  8. Thanks. Yeah I guess you are right that the easiest solution is a couple of relays. Cheers

  10. Hey Guys I want to enable the Daytime Running Lights on the T-Sport as daytime light is required in Denmark by law. I imported the T-sport from the UK but there it doesn't have Daytime running lights, meaning that I have to turn onthe lights manually. Not really a problem other than my wife forgets to turn the lights both on and off, risking both a fine and a flat battery. also with the lights on the instrument panel light gets dimmed so in bright sun I cant read the speedo. So, I want to enable the daytime lights, does anyone know if the car is pre wired up for this? looking at the (american) wiring diagram on http://2zzge.com/library/Corolla%202ZZGE/2004/Wiring%20Manual/ it looks like there is a relay for this purpose. So the question is: Can I just buy a relay and plug it in?
  11. Hi Simon Yeah, sorry wanted to post something earlier but still waiting for some pics so only got a couple of low res ones. Anyway, last thursday I went to the first track-day of the year at Sturup Raceway in Sweden. New this time was my Toyo Proxes R888 (205/40-17) on Advan Racing RS ( 17x7 ET-38) wheels. The track was wet when we arrived as it had been raining all day. So I was a bit nervous going out on the R888s. However it turned the track soon dried out and that as soon there was some heat in the tyres they just gripped like hell and because of the hard sidewalls they provide tons of steering feedback! Best track upgrade ever! Here are a couple of inboard vids from the day: So had a great day and I am already looking forward to my next track day on May 28th on Ring Knutstorp( also sweden)
  12. Finally got the wheels and tyres mounted for tomorrows track-day at Sturup Raceway Sweeden. Can't wait to see the improvement track rubber brings!
  13. They should stick like glue once they get heated up! My first track day of the year will be on April 23rd. Can´t wait!!!!
  14. Just received my new Track tyres for the season! Toyo Proxes R888 205/40-17. Can't wait to feel the improvement on track!
  15. Thanks Buddy. I have almost come to the same conclusion as you suggest. ie nice wheels( 17") for every day driving and the second set( standard 16") for track. However on the other hand: for everyday driving the tire should ideally be more comfort biased and the track tire more performance biased and that would suggest 16" for road and 17" for track? So I am seriously considering buying yokohama advan neova ad08 on the 17s for both road and track. but would they be too compromised for the road? Here are my 17" a couple of track photos
  16. Thanks Mate. Looks brilliant! now a 205/40-17 is 4%( rolling radius) than the standard 195/55-16. So my question is: does the car feel lower geared than normally? Can you feel any difference? Most people go for either 205/45-17 or 215/45-17. I have got two sets of wheels( standard 16x6.5 and some 17x7) and I am in the dilemma of choosing what set and size to use for track( with Toyo R888) and what set and size to use for road? Should I use the standard 16" for track: with 195/50-16 R888 (16" R888 significantly cheaper than 17! R888) Use my 17" for road with some 215/45-17 roadtyres probable continental contisport 3 or use my 17" for track: here there I have two size options on R888: 215/45-17( slightly larger than 195/55-16) and 205/40-17? Or should I just run one set of wheels with a combined road and track tyre eg. yokohama advan neova AD08 in size 205/45-17 cant decide what to do
  17. Yep, didn't work. Thanks Buddy. Then I won't waste my time trying. Guess there is no other way than the full simulator solution. Cheers The problem is every car is ever so slightly different and the tolerances on components are pretty big, you need something that you can adjust to cope with the tolerances or build it specific to the car. If you have an oscilloscope it is much easier - less trial and error. OK, had hoped there would be a standard solution, and that you could share your circuit and component values. But if every car varies as you say then I guess I have to get the oscilloscope on. sorry to keep banging on this issue.

  19. Check this link from poland( and newcelica.org) apparently a simple RC circuit is enough to fool the ECU! http://www.forum.corollaclub.org/viewtopic.php?t=27423&start=3675&sid=132d3e4d35a42d39a3f2170b2b267c18 1uF cap and 1M resistor. NRGIZER: have you tried this one?
  20. Awesome mate! well done! Very impressive! I actually went to a company visit at Rotrex the other week together with the track club. I am so tempted to get a Rotrex setup myself! At Rotrex they told me that the belt setup is the most overlooked area, and really need a lot of attention for a well working setup.
  21. Found this thread. http://www.s10forum.com/forum/f89/do-it-yourself-o2-simulator-126774/ question now: would this simple mechanical fix of moving the O2 sensor backwards work for my problem?
  22. OK I will give it a go some day. Is a circuit like this the only way to fool the ECU? Also Can you explain why the CEL doesn't come on immediately, but after 3-5 days of driving?
  23. Thanks dude. Can you be a bit more specific than "straight forward"? Do I need to make a O2 simulator circuit like this?: http://www.mkiv.com/techarticles/oxygen_sensor_simulator/ I am after a permanent fix that I can install and then forget about it
  24. Hi Guys Maybe one of you can help me? A while ago the air pump for the air injection system broke. It kept burning the 50A fuse, which triggered the CEL + disabled VSC and traction control. Therefore I took the airpump apart and found that it was stuck and the coils totally burned out. I then simply disconnected the airpump motor and cleared the CEL with my OBD2 reader. After a couple of days I got the CEL again. The fuse doesn't burn anymore so I can simply clear the CEL again and wait 2-4days until it triggers again. Obviously it is annoying having to clear the CEL all the time. Therefore I would like to know: what signal or sensor that triggers the CEL? Is it the Lambda sensor? Once I know the signal that triggers the ECU I should be able to do something about it? What buggers me is that it is not instant but comes on after a couple of days driving, so maybe it is a build up of values/readings that triggers once it reaches a certain level?? Please help me! And please don't just suggest buying a new airpump, that is too easy.
