  1. Hi all. Though I'd share this with you all if you don't want to take your gearbox out of the car to replace the clutch then this is for you, Disconnect battery,Remove valance and exhaust boxes, remove boot floor, remove starter and clutch slave cylinder and gear linkage, (I did undo the cross gate cable at the gearshift which allows the box to move back further) remove cross member, disconnect driveshafts inner only, unbolt brake calibers and tie up out the way, remove discs ( a good time to replace them if needed) support engine,remove caliber brackets, undo gearbox bolts and tug like hell, a

  3. Charlie! where are you driving from, we are coming from North of Aberdeen so anywhere South of the border is a short trip. Get it down there man, people want to see the engineering on both cars, well I do anyway.

  5. On the first attempt (just using the Carbtune Manometer) I got... CO=0.065% HC=2857ppm So basically it was spitting raw unburnt fuel straight out of the exhaust. Then I used a colour tune to try and get a blue'ish flame and got... CO=2.194% HC=1027ppm Which is a pass. So just out of interest I tweaked each carb to richen it by 1/4 of a turn... CO=3.923% HC=199ppm A doubling of the CO caused a 5 fold decrease in the HC emissions.

  7. To give Autocar credit though, the panels probably will be behind the front wheels and more than likely in front of the rear wheels and possibly stowed under the top somewhere? They've covered themselves by being as vague as possible

  8. As the internet is all about opinions, I'll give my non-expert one to Steve's questions When would the best use of Tour be and why? If you were sat on the motorway for a period you may as well be in Tour. It will give the quietest ride as the exhaust valve will remain closed as long as you don't use high rpm, and there's no good reason to use any other mode. In the wet Tour will provide the most safety - it will try to intervene at the first hint of rear slip and provide a softer throttle response so you're less likely to get into trouble in the first place. When would the best use

  14. A first class high compliance MM Cartridge and arm combo! I've had dozens of turntables, from LP12's to Notts Analogue Dais, with most stops in between (I used to buy and sell, keeping them for a while then moving them on). When I moved house I had 8 turntables, so I sold them all as I needed some cash and I'd rather sell them than shift them. The one I kept was my own design. I made it back when I was in my 20's an considered putting it into production, but I couldn't make them cheaply enough. The Hayton Audio Mk1:

  15. I wasn't arguing about racing pedigree. I knew the M100 had none, wasn't in the same category, and didn't need any. My intention was to point out the strengths of the Integra, not to slag off the M100. Once the Honda's (S2000 or Integra) merits were mentioned in a thread about a Honda... Someone then decided to argue that the Integra and S2000 had no merits, and couldn't possibly compete with the M100. NOTE: I voiced my opinion about the Integra compared to the M100, from personal experience. I didn't say the M100 wasn't good for what it was, just that I preferred the Integra.

  16. The Integra Type-R that people most refer to is the DC2 design circa 1995-2001. THe DC2 Integra actually had double wishbones at all 4 wheels. The pressed steel "unit body" construction used on the Integra is also used on the 911... The DC5 Integra, which is what I have now, had McPherson struts up front and double wishbone in the rear. I know that the rear suspension looks similar to a trailing arm, but it is a double wishbone, in how it controls camber throughout movement. In fact the rear suspension on the Integra is very similar to the Esprit in many ways, except for geo angles

  17. While I do like the M100, I do have to stand up for the Integra Type-R here. I've had 2 Honda Integras (well they call them Acura Integras here), and I've driven the M100 on street, in the mountains on twisty roads, and in an autocross event. Been a passenger on track as well. IMO I definitely prefer the Integra, especially in the Type-R guise with the limited slip differential. The M100 feels very front heavy and ponderous. It is easy to pivot the rear on the autocross, but then it isn't difficult in the Integra either, if you want. But let's compare facts. How many champi
