    A Blokes bum? Probably not. Mine does but I'm tiny. The idea is for them to be a bit snug so I had trouble finding a small enough (non junior) seat to suit my frame. I've sat in a Sparco Evo and an...

    Busy week.

    I ran in the second local Gymkhana for the year on Saturday (they're a bit different to the Ken Block stuff, more a low-speed tarmac rally sprint) and I appear to have improved greatly...

    Hngh. With great (braking) power comes great (maintenance) responsibility.

    After the last private practice day the brake pedal had gone spongy as it does every track day. Figured I just needed a...

    Wow Conor, your 4G looks so much more racecar than mine (I mean that in a good way). I only just noticed you have manual windows too, how exactly did you do that? Did you just modify the Prelude...

    I'd be looking at Rockauto for the front end stuff, they seem to have a good stock of tie rods and rack ends and they should still fit despite the whole RHD/LHD thing, but I'd double check the part...

    Yeah, I double checked on my rack and the service manual, i'm pretty sure it's the lockout pin hole we're talking about. It has a torx bit (star shaped) bolt in the end to stop dirt getting in to the...

    I believe it is just where the 4WS lockout tool goes for alignment purposes. Do you mean the area top-right of the pic? Sorry, it's my rack from when I took it out so the pic is top down not viewed...

    So, long time no post. Since last time I've just been trying to get these brakes 100%. I was having issues with a soft pedal even after the caliper rebuild, so I threw in a new set of rear pads and...

    Depends what you want. There isn't much of a market left in Aus for these things. Carmate only sell 1 kind and I believe it's fiberglass. Seibon sell a carbon lip and appear to have a warehouse in WA...
