RE: *MAXXD* Ollie's Toyota Corolla T Sport
Ok, so I thought I should start my project thread on the new wip.

It will come as no surprise that I decided at the back end of 2012 that I would give the 200 a year or so off from its show & shine whoring and general awesomeness to scratch an itch I have had for wayyyy to long and that was build and enjoy a track toy.

Now many will recall I dipped my toe in a few years ago when I built an old corolla saloon and threw it round silverstone without it owing me a penny more than £300, but that went as it was rotten and I've always wanted to build something fit for this purpose, so here it is!

It's a 2002 Toyota Corolla T sport, revvy 190bhp engine, front wheel drive and of course a Toyota!

It's a pretty tidy car to be honest comes with electrics and leather, not that I will need all that but useful to sell on in future to recompense the cost (which wasn't as much as you might think!)

78k on the clock that means in t sport terms its clutch time, this one was mullered so off to Neil at Turner Auto services who stuck a fab exert clutch in for me

I've a trackday planned on the 7th July at Blyton so that will give it a real work out, but I already know areas it's going to struggle, and the anchors are the main one!

So I have gone for a full overhaul, fresh dot 5.1 fluid, SFS performance braided lines all round, EBC yellowstuff track based pads...

And these baby's!

MTec sport grooved and dimpled discs, perfect compromise between road and track use and should haul the car to a stop safely and without fading when I have given them some!

Now back to see Neil when the rest of the kit arrives...hopefully before Blyton! Icon_smile

RE: *MAXXD* Ollie's Toyota Corolla T Sport
So, I like to run things a little close, but on a new project I think this was wayyyy to close!

Car went to Neil's for a brake check up and fluid change ahead of it first track sessions at the weekend, the car didn't feel stable under braking and was grabby when pulling away & was also making a slight metallic rattle when my foot wasn't on the middle pedal.

I also gave Nez some Dot 5.1 fluid I had left over from my 200sx when I uprated the brakes on that so intended to swap all the fluid for fresh stuff with a higher boiling point to at least help combat some of the fade.

However...

On removing the rear brakes to put some standard but new pads in, the caliper snapped off, it had corroded through and was now just a paperweight. Frantic calls from Nez managed to find one in stock and get it delivered and fitted yesterday!

[Image: th_e7193981cec3eab198f51fcff6133679_zps28ccaecb.jpg]

As you clan see the pads were beyond gone, but as I have fresh yellowstuffs on order it was silly fitting anything decent in so it was standard cheepos for now.

The discs are also mullered so on top of the front discs I bought, I'm going to purchase the rears to match from Mtech on Monday.

Finally the handbrake is inboard but the backplate and shoes were done for too, so they will need replacing.

So in the next few weeks, this car will have a fully uprated braking system, new discs, race pads, stainless lines, new rear calipers and hand brake ancillaries. She should stop like a dream.

It's an odd thing to do when you want to go fast, to make sure the brakes are good, but that's the best way to start because if you can stop and have confidence in your brakes, youmcan keep your foot in for longer on the straights!

Huge thanks to Neil at Turners Auto Services, I'm sure it was the last thing he needed on a hot Friday but as usual he has done a super job!

This car is already turning Into a money pit, bt I love these projects, and I've a funny feeling Neil is going to have to love it too!

See the traders section for all his contact details.

Here she is in his yard post surgery Icon_smile

RE: *MAXXD* Ollie's Toyota Corolla T Sport
It is fairly spritely it just struggles low down, it's suited nice to a track where I can work the gears but if I get caught off guard I'm done for, all my power is at the top end (+6600rpm)

A set of stage 2 cams will help that Icon_smile

But she ain't bad for a corolla Icon_smile
