QuoteBrilliant little set of tools from Teng, recommend everyone has one for fiddly jobs. Made removal of the centre console a breeze (without removing seats).
Quote from: AdamR28 on September 9, 2020, 09:08Erm, not much more than it's very useful and worth having in your tool set! https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/1346345019?iid=133325699166
Quote from: AdamR28 on September 11, 2020, 11:02Spend now £454 - bought some Apec brake pads all round, as the ones on the car are mismatched and unknown brand.I know many will turn their noses up at the Apec 'budget' brand, but they are surprisingly good. I raced MX5s on them for years, both sprint and endurance, they hold up surprisingly well on track and have decent feel. For comparison, I found them to both last better and work better than EBC Yellows, especially from cold.
Quote from: AdamR28 on September 11, 2020, 11:27I think it's a case of all pads having a temperature level where they aren't comfortable any more, and from this point they increase in wear massively. This is often the leading edge of the pad too, so you end up with taper wear, sticky pistons, sticky sliders, and horrible brakes.With the extra power in your car and stickier tyres, I wouldn't expect something like EBC Yellows to last very well, good to know the Blues are decent though if I need something more, thanks!Do you find that fronts or rears wear out fastest?
Quote from: Roj on September 11, 2020, 18:27I love seeing these home-brew 'built not bought' projectd and the ingenuity in some of the mods, great stuff. Can't wait until I get the space and kit to join the fun.
