Picked up some new tyres today,saw them on ebay,someone bought but didnt use,got them for £245,almost half price :D
They are toyo r1r,they are similar to 888 but got more tread for wet conditions,hoping to get bit more traction as normal road tyres just an't cuttinging it,and i just get wheel spin in most gears,will get some toyo 888 when can afford as they are £650

You really need plenty of rubber and a bit of weight over the rear to hook well. I use Mickey Thompson sport radials and they grip well - and seem to wear well too.

Toyo 888 are being discontinued and their replacements the R888R's are now no longer road legal. Try Adams and Page for tyres they are quite competitive.

Well today thought I would fit some anti roll bars,front one is a rallydesign bladed anti roll bar,made for sierra,i just cut down width as blades bolt on ends,good thing with these you can buy different thickness centre tubes which gives softer or stiffer bar,ive gone for stiffest one,all fitted now just need to weld threaded bosses to bottom arms and cut drop links to length.Rear bar im using is a ford focus mk2 with rose jointed drop links,all seems to be fitting nicely :D

Think going retro look,it's been ford Mercury grey since1988,so thinking original colour like almond green or even the grey,going for wide steels 15x8 with hub caps


Can't go wrong with retro and almond green.

Amazing build.

Been busy last couple of weeks changing turbos,the turbo i had on car was a cheap Chinese copy,seemed to work real well but i just dont trust it,so now engine all run in and can start to give some welly,ive got a nice rebuilt garrett t34,it has a billet gtx compessor wheel which spools up quite a bit quicker,has a larger rear housing so should have some big grunt,and loads of torque,higher up rev range, :shock: ,my poor down pipe been chopped up into three pieces and welded back together yet again,starting to look like frankenstein pipe,should be out for test next week or so

Sun was out today,so took little mo out for a test drive after all the winter work,i have changed geometry of front arms,changed front coil overs to gaz with 380lb springs,fitted roll bars front and back,changed tyres from 215/40/16 to 225/45/16 sticky toyos,changed turbo to garrett t34 turbo,and the result is :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: fantastic,feels much more planted and way less twitchy ,before car seemed to dart about left and right when lifting off throttle at speed,now gives me way more confidence,just need to make some shock setting adjustments and think she good,hoping to go to austin morris meet at Brooklands museum next weekend,might even give her a blast up the famous hill, :D :D

Really is an EXTREME Minor you've built there Dunk. A true credit and dedication.

I'd like to see it go the Hill as it would definitely raise a few eyebrows. ;)

Are you considering any other Hill Climb venue's for fun? Prescott, Shelsley Walsh etc...
