So not a lot has happened over the last couple of months. I finally got my v6 astina hubs so I could finish off my Front Big Brake Upgrade. Got my hubs on the 22/11/12, removed the hub axels and bearings, pressed fitted new wheel bearings into each hub, press fitted one hub axel into one of the v6 hubs. Now here is where I can stuck. My spare I4 hub had a drive shaft stuck in it. So after a couple of days of trying to remove the drive shaft to use the hub axel, I ended up snapping one of the caliper bolt holes on the hub. How I did this u might ask... well I my have got a little pissed off and used a mates 3T bench press. And yer the hub axel did move... so in the bin it went (with the drive shaft still attached to it). So after some thinking I remembered the passenger’s side hub on the car was my spare hub, after the first attempt of fitting mx5 brakes to my original hubs I may have drilled out my calipers bolt hole threads on my hub’s before double checking the measurements. I still had my original hub on the driver’s side. WIN so off it came. Removed the hub axel, and installed it on my driver side V6 hub. Yay all sorted. So bolted the new Hubs in with new ball joints, and then installed the calipers and new braided brake lines. i also used 2005 mazda mx5 turbo disc's which where 4 stud and the same as my 4 stud dics but 270mm in size. I went with a DBA 4000 series T3 dics and a QFM HPX brake pad. My new eunos 800m calipers are also a two spot caliper too which work really well, also had them rebuilt and painted Mate red.

Looks the BOMB now



this is them sitting behind my rims looks good i think..






and just a random photo there too

I also wont down the front coilovers the there lowest setting and found out that im still legil. hmmm so my yellow speed coilovers are the series two coilovers witht the 50mm longer front springs. hmmm might have to call pete and get some series 1 springs.. dont get me wrong, the car looks great atm and handles really well, but it would be nice to get a little lower i think

ow and i have my eyes on some really nice wheel spacers too.. not just the standard one that sit over your wheel nuts, the propper ones that bolt to your hub and bolt to your rim need a bit more track on the front and rear. if i could have got my rims in a 17x8 i would have to achieve this but due to enkie not making this rims that whide i had to settle for 17x7.. sad panda..

or i could just buy some 15x8 rims and slap them on for track days

what do you kids think???

get wheels with correct offset if you want more track, heaps out there.

the 15s with some track style rubber is probably the way to go.
