*****************************************************************************************

So this weekend with the help of my older brother and use of the garage he works in I have checked over the car. It occasionally hesistate/hiccups on part throttle, seems worse when cold/warming up but does it when warm too.

 

I have checked the plugs, which look used but okay, coil packs which are fine, timing chain which is tight as it should be, timing is spot on too. Also plugged it into a diagnostic machine in case of any stored codes (No EML showing) and there were none.

 

So I'm happy for now there's not any thing major causing it but alas I am none the wiser to why she does it but I'll have to leave it until it becomes more obvious as there's no point replacing parts without knowing if they will cure it.

 

So with that I set about fitting an S2000 filter to her, it's lovely on tap! :D

Quick couple of clips, excuse the rev limiter, despite it being dry, the Toyo's do not grip well. My younger brother is also terrible at filming it seems, despite being a camera man :lol:

Small update, fitted my Focal PC130 door speakers. These are 13cm (5 1/4") which is smaller that the OEM one but much better quality!

Broke two clip holders on the drivers doorcard but when I removed the clips from the door they seated in what's left perfectly fine so I'm not fussed about that.

As I said, it sounds so much better, with the tweeter part in the new speakers the vocals are so much clearer now and I can have it louder with more clarity too!

So Mimms saw the Type R get plenty of abuse! Absolutely brilliant day and the car was faultless all day too! I was buzzing! 

 

I was a bit naughty on the way to Rockingham as we left about 15 minutes late. Then I let my brother do four 0-60 runs in my car an hour before I took it on a 30 minute track session!

Nice scrubbage on the front tyre afterwards! Gripped surprisingly well over the session!

Exiting the circuit tunnel blast!

 

All in all I had a brilliant day, even if we did hammer half a tank of fuel in just 80 miles! :lol:

 

Track session footage to follow when Phill has sorted it! Again, thanks for this mate!

Post track day update! 

 

I managed three sessions all together, 2x 30 minutes and a 20 minute blast! 

 

Instruction was well worth it as in just the space of a few laps with guidance I was taking cramer curves 10-15mph faster just for being taught some technique! Getting into that at 90+ you need to have your whits about you! 

 

Car held up well and I thoroughly enjoyed it! There were 53 cars registered for the evening!

So yesterday I decided I'd treat Bob to a full inside and outside clean! Spent two hours just on the interior!

Now for the videos! 

 

I didn't film the tuition session, just the two I was solo.

 

 

 

 

Enjoy! 

 

Soon will be a sump baffle and four new tires!

I rubbed the pads back on all four corners, re-greased them up and bed them back in, seems to be good again! 

 

My tyres were looking a little worse for wear.....

Biiiiiiiiiiig update.

 

Fully build SQ sound system! 

 

This included the doors, rear quarter panels, boot and floor being stripped out and having sound deadening added plus carpet underlay! All the cables are run hidden and even the doors have had speaker cables run into them using the OEM channels so there's very little evidence of whats gone into this! 

 

Equipment is as follows:

 

Headunit - Pioneer DEH-80PRS

 

Amplifier - Apline PDX-V9 5 channel amplifier

 

Speakers - Hybrid Audio Imagine series i61-2 two way speakers (6.5")

 

Sub - Hybrid Audio Imagine series i10sw subwoofer (10")

 

Sealed box.

 

It sounds fantastic! The car is also much more refined for the deadening, basically I can drive around and hear nothing outside of the car if I don't want to and the music is so clear you forget it's actually on loud! 

 

Here's a load of pictures!

Video of the first start up with it fitted!

 

*******************************************************************************************

Decided to blow off the dust that's been gathering on me wallet for the past several months, even though I shouldn't have and got some different wheels for Bob!

 

OEM Enkei's from an Evo 8 with 215/45R17 Hankook tyres fitted. They'll do for now but my plan is to change them eventually for some Michelin Pilot Sport 4 in either 225/45 or 235/45 so they fit better without any stretch.

 

Not sure if they'll stay the same colour but for now they will have to.

 

Then observant among you may spot the new circuit sticker in the collection from Japfest :)

Bob finally getting a much needed set of tyres!

 

When I bought the Evo wheels last year they had 215/45 R17 Hankook's on which I didn't rate and certainly didn't like the stretch they had! But they had plenty of tread and I couldn't afford to just bin them at the time so I've waited until they've worn down to change them.

 

I have gone for the Michellin Pilot Sport 4 as recommended on TRO in a 225/45 R17, they look much better on the wheels. I have only driven home from the tyre place, about a mile or so, so I can't comment on them just yet haha!

I've been away for the weekend and my brother has kindly fitted me some new discs and pads for the front and new pads for the rear.

 

Safe to say the front pads were 'low'.

 

Project Mu HC800 front pads with RPB discs.
Padgid rear pads.

*********************************************************************************

Not much to report here, another oil change done and a check over.

 

Almost at 80k miles!

 

Yesterday I went to a 'Getaway driver' experience at the Curborough sprint circuit in Lichfield. It was a right laugh!

In the morning we had some practice runs of the track but in the afternoon we got one go at the robbery.

 

You have to set off and then stop once you've crossed the start line, get out and rob the bank. Bring the briefcase back to your car, stow it inside and then belt up before completing two laps of the track.

 

It was hilarious my mates and I trying to run, we aren't built for it that's for sure!

 

Anyway, I've found a couple of photos from the day and I had my GoPro with me so I'm going to cobble together the footage.

***********************************************************************************

So Bob has now hit 80k miles, recently had some fresh oil to reward his service. Then I gave him a good pasting :lol:

 

Few weekends ago I took part in a 'Getaway driver' experience at the Curborough Sprint Circuit near to Lichfield.

 

You had to set off the timer, stop, get out and rob the 'bank', then get back in the car and complete two laps of the track. I was a lot of fun!

 

 

 

Then the weekend after that I decided I'd have my first ever go at the 1/4 mile!

 

Wasn't great, 15.2 seconds but I had fun!

 

 

***************************************************************

Time for an update!

 

Bob is showing his age in the face now so I spent an afternoon fingering it, this is how it went.
