  1. The auto to manual part doesn't need cert if it's all factory parts and bolts in But, A modified or non original brake pedal does, so if it's had a manual brake pedal fitted or the pedal pad cut down , yes it should have a cert
  2. yes would need plating I think 1.6 is probably a bit light
  3. each one would require approval individually unless you did a component approval, but for that to be economical, you would probably have to sell a few
  4. yep anything adjustable that wasn't originally, needs cert. have not seen anyone cut down the cones, only seen people use adjustable ones. if the cone is solid, and you keep the "spring" captive, probably no reason you couldn't shorten it
  5. yeah theres no minimum clearance as long as it cant touch under any circumstances, or jam the steering if an engine mount breaks
  6. looks pretty good, have not seen one in person but it appears pretty solid Who makes it?

    Myself and Bartholomew will be there in the afternoon I have a van for sleeps not sure what barts plans are, but i imagine hes not being the little spoon
  11. Also if the steering arm is bolt on, you could potentially make a new arm once you figure out where it needs to go?
  12. The rules of thumb we use are 10mm max total for a newer car 20mm if its old Or no worse than original. We haven't been given a definition of what is old vs new it's a bit open to interpretation Where the toe change occurs is just as important as how much there is. An early mustang or falcon has a lot of bumpsteer (usually over 20mm) but it occurs when the suspension is at near full droop so doesn't show up when you drive it If you had 10mm toe change, but that was all in, for example, 20mm either way from ride height then it would probably be noticeable when you drive it

    Ended up at position 11 on the chart, tried 10 but that had a part throttle hesitation. 11 is a smaller (.083 instead of .086) jet and the standard rods. Put the wide band on today and went for a drive, seems pretty good, runs well, cruise afr is mid to high 15 now. Also put a bigger needle and seat in while the carb was apart, I suspect it has a fuel flow issue which only ever happens at the drags so I'll see if that helps
