Drives soooo much nicer now, them tyres stick like poo on a blanket and finally got the 30mm drop on the rear, I done the front like 9 months ago.
About 15 mile round trip and the lack of o2 sensor still hasn’t put the management light on which is handy cos the new one I bought is still on its way from Holland.....oops

Mot passed with flying colours, even with 1 cat and no O2 sensor it passed the emissions....just, which I find odd as I read most fail miserably.
ready just in time for my new job picking vegetables in Hereford :( the things we must do to earn a wage

Some douche came pushing through the single file with parked cars up my street, took the mirror clean off a parked focus and took the lens off mine...which flew in my window and smacked me in the eye lol

Sad day for the 22 year old clutch, gave up in a spectacular haze of stink.
I have read the luk kit is the best to go for, anyone know if this is the case or of any alternatives? I dont mind the 90 quid or more if there is a decent upgrade worth going for given the.....spirited driving it recieves

fanks for the input, I didnt have much luck with excedy in the mx5, ok for what you pay but i burnt it out in 3 months, probably from doing donuts lol.
I would like to upgrade but only see drivetorque brand for uprated which I have never heard of, bit risky with 140 quid for the stage 1

Alot of the rally and auto test use Luk without issues ,
Cheapo stock fail easy OEM and such take quite abit to blow,
And upgrade there paddle , organic ect but like one I felt it was stiff as hell, and not as nice to drive ,
Nissan orignally used Luk it's why the last as long,

I'm still on the original at 109k and 21 years lol

nice bit of info, if they use them on the autos cant be too bad, I had a stage 2 organic in my corolla T sport which was a pig in the wet, either spin the wheels or stall so in the currently vastly powerful micra I guess its just stall lol.
Given what you just said I think LUK is the way

Yeah,
It's what a lot recomend ,
And tbh alot of stock parts can go upto up and past alot of tuned ones are running,
Mean the manifold n/a is limited to 135hp
Polly got a organic clutch it's heavy as hell tbh, and as in the blog it's had the clutch pedel renforced lol,
And alot of people thrashing them find you snap the shafts before the clutch ,
Reminds me should get a one ready for mine

Been a while, sorted my new luk clutch and broke my phone in the process so no pics for the mo.

The new clutch is much better feels like i gained oooh at least 10bhp lol must of been slipping a while.

Been out for a good 1500 miles since the clutch done and ive rinsed my semi slicks, bit of play in the trackrod ends and the top mounts i fitted 8 months ago are now sqeaking too but it grips so well on the twisties I always end up with a grin.

A note on the supercharger, after some head scratching over an old casio the little eaton m24 charger (audi/vw 1.4 tsi) is going to be on its limit to get 8 or 9 psi up at 6.5k rpm as its designed to boost up to around 3k when a clutch cuts it off for the turbo to take over and the internal waste gate is not adjustable (not with my skill level anyway) so quite possibly maybe likely need to find a different charger lol.

And I was looking forward to hearing the charger buzz up to 16.5k rpm

anyone know how that small rear window rubber comes out? I got a pinstripe of light coming through where I had to trim it to exact size, it kept tearing when i left a bit to tuck in. I got no bubbles no lifting no creasing but do you think i can trim this stuff without leaving a gap and being 5% limo tint it looks like the sun itself is sneaking in.

Due to the worlds recent meltdown this is now the official NowInABitMotors work vehicle (didnt earn enough to buy my van lol)
Gonna be taking out the rear seats and boarding it out in the back.

The main big change is Im going to weld the rear doors up and smooth off the handles and make a proppa micra soupa van, i'll be starting this in the next week or so
