    Exige S2 2zz race car vs MR2 2zz track car

    Comparison of a Exige race car vs my MR2 track car. Both 2zz engined. Not sure if the Exige puts out more power, probably as they have aftermarket ECU's. 8 second difference, which doesn't sound like much over a 2m lap, but visually its an age. He also cocked up the last corner, so more like a...

    Best all-round semi-slicks?

    With my AR1's now shot, i'm in need of some more semi-slicks. I currently have the overkill of 3 sets of wheels and have to rely on others to carry an extra set to track. One set for wets and road with Rainsport 5's, which are only good for very wet conditions, for road they really lack and...

    Clutch bedding-in?

    What's the deal here? Never fitted a new clutch. I'm reading info a clutch should be bedded in gently over 300-500 city miles, surely not. The kit is only LUK OE and my car has as much torque as a lawn mower.

    Clutch change issue

    Just changed the clutch on my MR2 and after bolting it all back together, with just the hubs attached on stands, I can change gear without the clutch. The hubs are spinning quite fast in neutral so thinking that its spinning fast enough to match gears without the clutch? In gear it definitely...

    Anyone used a competition clutch kit?

    Need to replace the clutch kit on my MR2 2ZZ over winter and the OE kit from these comes in at a good price compared to other brands like LUK, Exedy, Sachs, Valeo etc, to which all prices have shot up this week for some reason. The CC kit also comes with a clutch alignment tool, see below. I...

    XHP Flashtool F30 330D

    OK, so i'm a year into ownership and my renewal has come in £200 cheaper than last year so its time for some fettling. Anyone ran this software for the F30 330D or even something using the ZF8 box? If so what are your thoughts, is it worth the £267? Should I go for a remap instead?

    Track car insurance annual v daily?

    The insurance has just ran out on the MR2 and has got me thinking. Why am I paying £500 a year for insuring a car that hardly gets used. So got me thinking about day insurance instead. Just done a quote online and its only £20 a day. I very rarely go out on the road as its pointless as you cant...

    Anyone used Dunlop cr311 tarmac rally tyres on track?

    I've recently bought 4 used medium hankook full slicks in 200/580/15 but one of them isnt usable so only have 3. These dont come up often used so doubt I'll get a single or even a pair withoutbuying new. I also would prefer a wider rear tyre. So a pair of new medium Dunlop CR311 tarmac rally...

    Windscreen removal?

    Someone wants my windscreen from the Octavia I'm breaking but not a clue how to remove it. There's no rubber seals on the outside. How the hell do you remove them? For the sake of £30 I've offered it at I just dont think it's worth the hassle?

    Timing and reduced power?

    Ok, so not Clio related but you lot are much more knowledgeable than most. So after the recent Toyota 2ZZ-GE engine swap into my MR2 Roadster with the new (old) 2001 150k mile engine the crossover to lift (VTEC if you will) and 6200rpm onwards is definitely not as strong as it was on the old...

    Starting an engine for first time after a re-build?

    Not necessarily a re-build for mine but the cams and lifters have been changed along with all the engine ancillaries so the engine is dry of oil. So how do I go about starting it back up for the first time? The obvious issue is oil getting around the engine quick enough. I was thinking of...

    Do I really need a fancy diff?

    Just doing the normal Friday go faster bits search and started thinking about aftermarket diffs for the MR2 as I'm looking to enter the Javelin sprint series next year.

    Turbo on its last legs? (VAG TFSI K03 question)

    I'm experiencing a weird boosting issue with the Skoda. It started a few months ago with an intermittent issue when on the odd occasion I wouldn't get full boost at WOT. It went away but then came back a few months later but this time I wouldn't get full boost if going WOT over 3k RPM, under 3k...

    Engine flush products?

    Do they actually work or should I just use a decent synthetic oil and do a few flushes with that? Pick my replacement engine up this week and it looks like it's been ran on non synthetic oil hence the heavy varnishing, it also has slight sludging but nothing to bad given it's on 150k miles.

    Big gay wings, do they really work on track?

    Looking for a bit more stability at higher speeds for the MR2 on track especially for my local tracks Oulton and Aintree where they have high speeds corners. My plan is to fit a GT type wing like the linked one below which looks similar to the Seibon CF 3D GT wing. No need for a crazy expensive...

    Halfords 5W50 Fully Synthetic Track Day Oil (£10 for 5L)

    Just looking for a suitable engine oil to replace the overly expensive Gulf competition 15w 50 that the MR2 has run on since the 2ZZ engine swap and after a lot of reading on viscosities and grades I've decided the most suitable with performance and value in mind was a 5w 50 as its thin at cold...
