Zed.: Found a Kia Sportage front diff, been looking for one since this time last year...... so, 4.777777777778:1 final drive 8-) Jan 11, 2019 21:20:17 GMT
wannabe: Oooh, nice. That's quicker acceleration, isn't it? Jan 11, 2019 21:28:49 GMT
FFS Corders: I think I read that it's the US spec ones with that ratio, with the UK ones 1.63 Jan 11, 2019 21:44:08 GMT
FFS Corders: But yes, higher ratio means lower top speed and better acceleration Jan 11, 2019 21:46:44 GMT
FFS Corders: Here: www.mx5nutz.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=42083 Jan 11, 2019 21:47:01 GMT
Zed.: 120mph @ 7200 in top is plenty :P cannot legally use that anyway! the diff was from a UK spec 1996 petrol engined Sportage, was hidden away in a local breakers stores (good thing I asked while there on other busness..) Jan 11, 2019 22:04:12 GMT *
FFS Corders: also gives higher motorway revs ;) make sure you document how you get the diff sorted, guides are always welcome for cool stuff like that Jan 12, 2019 20:12:16 GMT
wannabe: 4200rpm @ 70mph cruise - that's pretty close to standard, isn't it? (It's been so long since I've driven mine, I forget... :( lol) Jan 12, 2019 20:27:31 GMT
FFS Corders: Not too bad then, I'm also struggling to remember driving mine...think I do 3500 or so for 70 Jan 12, 2019 20:38:26 GMT
Zed.: Got the 'nod that I now have garage-unit so soon can work inside (untill that is filled like my current garage / sheds / garden....) 8-) Jan 15, 2019 19:26:50 GMT
wannabe: Sweeeeet :) Jan 15, 2019 23:23:04 GMT
JamesMk3: Sat at the local DHL depot. "Yes sir, we have your package". 10 mins later... "errrm... Doesn't look like we can find it at the moment" Jan 16, 2019 12:54:01 GMT
Zed.: Ginuea pig time...... just hit the 'B-I-N' on ebay for an XTD lightwieght flywheel :o will check the ballance & test its hardness / composition & if satisfactory it'll be modified for a diferent clutch :) cheapest option to see if it will work :-S Jan 16, 2019 13:38:46 GMT *
wannabe: Heated car seat thing for £4.99 from Aldi! Result!! :D Jan 18, 2019 14:33:26 GMT

Simon: FML wannabe - ordered tires there on Sunday 😂 4 new shoes tomorrow morning yay! Feb 5, 2019 21:34:07 GMT
wannabe: lol Always the way! New shoes are good :) Currently running semi-slicks so need some myself.. :D Feb 5, 2019 23:24:23 GMT
JamesMk3: Anyone coming to the Bracknell meet tomorrow morning? Feb 16, 2019 15:45:00 GMT
