  1. I got one brand new a while back, I think it was in the region of 55 quid
  2. My gti has always had less caster on one side, I’ve moved the subframe forward on that side which has helped a tad, would be interested to see if something like this works
  3. Flywheel update: Epytec have been great in dealing with the above issue and have just dispatched a replacement fywheel for me, so pressume they sent the wrong one by mistake initially. A helix friction disk is likely to be mounted to it over winter/offseason now there are no more events.
  4. i had a creak/rattle coming from the backrest of the rear seats clips into the top (quick release style), i ended up packing it out at the time
  5. Cheers for all the Ideas, After looking into it and pictures from the suppliers website i think i may have been sent the wrong flywheel or there has been a machining mistake, i'm in talks with them now so hopefully can sort something out I think my post about the shaft was maybe abit misleading, when the engine mount broke, the engine moved back towards the bulkhead and then broke an inner CV (i havnt pulled it apart yet to work out exactly what failed). The clutch im running is the stock one with a sprung hub. If the box comes out again i think ill put it a helix sprung 4 paddle
  6. Thanks for the reply, I measured up the flywheel last night and it appears the friction face on the flywheel is only 215mm, the gti clutch is 220mm, I looked on your thread and yours seems different to me (your friction surface is bigger) doesn’t explain the ring gear issue but they may have sent a different flywheel I’d filled a mount with poly resin before and it failed, the rubber on it was pretty worn and cracked tbh which probaly doesn’t help, may try it again, but gets expensive when it breaks shafts and potentially gets me out of the rally in the process
  7. yea good idea, i had thought of that but didnt know if itd been done before (if the gti one was hollow or anything like that) , will have a look into it over winter
  8. It’s an epytec one, I know quite a few gti’s run them so maybe a one off problem or something, not spoken to them yet as not sure I want to put another on to have a similar issue Had a great event on Saturday finishing 1st in class and 6th overall (out of 9 entrants). The new power definately made a big different on the longer sections and uphill areas. areas that need addressing before the next event: oil leak to fix leaking oil filled engine mount to fix gearbox oil leak to fix maybe fit an updated clutch and it was abit smelly at times
  9. Quick pre event update, Ive been having some starter motor grinding issues which havnt been solved with swapping the starter, however the car has always started... until tuesday night... Starter motor stopped engaging with the ring gear, swapped starters again only to find the issue wasnt fixed. Was a late one pulling the box out tuesday night to find the teeth on the lightened flywheel were absolutely goosed! aswell as signed of uneven wear on the friction disc against the flywheel also. the clutch never felt the same after fitting the lightened flywheel so i suspect it was eit
  10. i found the only locking tools i needed to do the cambelt were some drill bits, 8mm or 8.5mm from memory
  11. I had thought about getting it skimmed and ported while it was off the polo but nowhere locally really does that sort of stuff
  12. ill have a look at the map and get back to you on the complex questions, Injectors are the stock gsxr600 ones which i think are 240cc, but are at 80% duty so any more power and would probably need some bigger ones idle isnt too bad now ive balanced the itb's, its been raised to 1000 ish as itd try and die when the fan comes on or i turn the wheel at idle which loads the engine ill post a picture of the graph when i get a chance
  13. its got a soft cut around 7650, peak power is just after 7k
  14. Dyno day went well, minor hickups with the throttle cable/linkage which needs sorting before the next event, aswell as some venting to the ITBS as the intake temps were skyhigh 35+throughout the run. Despite this it made a healthy 163.9 bhp & 134ftlbs of torque, Torque has moved up the rev range from the VVT setup before which is to be expected. More is likely to be gained from an aftermarket manifold but will keep the stock one for now.
  15. I went for the biggest i could get really, Danst said they fitted 50mm on a lupo before, the other option from them was 90mm, i went with 75mm from somewhere else and just waiting on a pipercross filter to go over them. Yup abs is gone, running the stock pedal box which needed abit of fettling to fit the cable pedal. i have a bias valve in the line to the rear brakes Its a friends subaru GC8, ive been in his garage while faffing around with wiring
