Not much to report as of late. We fitted the ACT clutch and flywheel the other day. Now in the process of refitting everything for the final time hopefully!

Welded the manifold up whilst it was off the car:

Fitted the Monoblocks today after finally receiving the Dixcel discs. They needed a bit of machining to make them fit, but all sorted now. Fitted new wheel bearings and studs while it was in bits. Pro Race 1's also have a fresh set of NS2-R tyres on too.

Not much happened with this lately. Just mainly working my way through the last few dull jobs before it goes to RDT for wiring/tuning.

I did get to have a play with something a little more interesting over the last few days - something to hopefully offset a bit of the added weight from the turbo setup. Set of titanium bracing bars to replace the factory ones.

Rear subframe lower tie bar - weighing 236g







Front X-member, replaces the crash bar behind the bumper - weighs in at 737g



And the front strut brace - came out at 949g
