Well I got my new QA1 Heim Joints delivered today from Speedway Motors and I'm beyond pleased ! Everything is tight !





On a side note, all my motor mount parts came in, I'll update soon again.

Finally got off my lazy *** and did something today. I finished the battery relocation, tightened up everything underneath, got my exhaust back up, changed transmission fluid with some Redline, mounted my intercooler and test fitted the front bumper cover.

Sorry to go way back and ask a probably, totally simple question,



Using this plate will be a fine offset and will disengage correctly?
We in NZ have a similar problem as you guys in US as none of the models came here and noone stocks the kits off the shelf.
I'd rather just like to order my clutch parts once.

Good stuff, keep it coming!

Cheers
Sorry for the late reply, Mine seems to engage and disengage fine, I'll know more about it once the car actually starts. As far as the clutch itself is concerned, I wont have to go back looking for another one when it wears out in the EU. There is a company in California (California Clutch) that rebuilds and modify's these self adjusting clutches to hold more. The guy there "Oleg" says he can even source the correct clutch in the US once he has mine in his hands since no one can cross the EU Sachs number with ours.

So I started building my motor mounts about 2 days ago. I am almost to the point of welding it all together. I just need to do a little bit more trimming and making some minor adjustment of the parts. The mounting tabs being one of the things to trim down. So here is a little update. (And no i didn't tack weld these with the bushings in.)
