So car is back to Darkside on Monday for a few things being doing.

Wavetrac Diff being fitted

Darkside Oil Cooler

Braided Clutch line to remove the damper valve

Powerflex front arm bushes as noticed they needed doing when doing the brakes

Cambelt and water pump as its 5 years old now

Service

Porsche Mecan Brake Ducts

Also looking at replacing the clutch but will decide what clutch to go with once the box is out and can be inspected then will make a choice on which one to fit.

Then off to Cadwell Park on Wednesday night to test it out.

Dropped off at darkside this morning



No time being wasted had the gearbox and clutch out and the new clutch and diff in just after lunch time. Some seals for the gearbox weren’t included in the fitting fit so they are coming tomorrow.

Standard clutch seems to have held up well. 82k 52kish standard, 12k stage 1 almost 20k at over 200bhp getting used for track days,drag racing and sprints and still in good condition




New sach’s SRE clutch going in.

Car temp back but going back to darkside tomorrow as they didn’t have time to fit it the oil cooler but still wanted me to take the car back to help bed in the clutch.








Sadly the Porsche brake ducts didn’t fit due to the location of the anti roll bar and toe arm would cause them to pop off.

Clutch in my opinion looks amazingly good considering the amount of abuse its had.












Another interesting discovery is that the gearbox part number starts with 02R hinting that it’s an O2R box but the diff was stamped 02J. Also looks like it wasn’t keen on coming out











They also noticed a couple of boost pipes had some rub marks on them and replaced them for free.

oil cooler fitted




Took the trip over to Cadwell to try it out. The diff is insane. On the road to Cadwell in the passed the car did have a habit of wandering and thats completely gone now. On track going through the first corner and round chris curve it was able to go through them in 4th flat, could have probably carried more speed but didn't have the guts for it.






Couple of videos from last night, data is speed, revs,g force, boost and intake temp.

First one had a good run with the civic which had a DC2 type r engine with bolt on’s. Should have came off on the lap after him as the tyres started to overheat and it got messy.

Last session that low sun was a killer going into the braking area at the fastest part of the track.

2 fastest laps comparison

new badge of honor for it.

Few pics from Javelin











more stickers



Took the car down one of my fav backroads to really give it some with the diff and its insane how much grip and traction and how much more compliant the car is aswell. Car doesn't wander as much or feel as skittish.

Felt slower still you look down and see the speed......

First test was pretty tight and hit a couple of the posts so didn't help my times. Some parts have been retarmac'd and some haven't everyone was slower on each run as on the undone parts we were just pulling up more stones.

Second test the car seem to have developed a snap oversteer issue. If you watch at the zipzaps heading to the other end of the paddock youll see the car oversteer heading into the hairpin
