That clutch and slave issue is well known at this stage Keith, surely you can remedy the problem better than the pedal limiting bodge.

oh, and did you ever think about putting some webbing on the towers where they meet the cross brace? even the stock mini has webbing here to minimise upper arm compliance under breaking, if you've ever used a breaker bar on the hub nut while someone has their foot on the brakes you will have seen the twisting of the towers.

Not your typical heated leather seated track day car but it does have heated leather!

I was aware of the possible issue with the clutch over throw but said I would deal with it when I got that far, to be honest it is minimal a couple of mm from the floor worst case and the sound deadening and carpets are yet to go in.

Do you mean at the bottom of the towers?

This is a nice solution for the space issue at the rad but I decided against it due to serviceability and cost. I have one of them fitted in my Evo.

Got say Keith, what a great build and I admire your level of skill, cant wait to see the finished car. I have learnt loads from your build diary and plan to steal a few of your ideas with my build (well most of them really) .

I am interested how others have solved the issue with the clutch??, if you only have to restrict the pedal travel by 10-15mm i dont really see the issue with it and I would call that a result, as surely you will never be able to tell? To call it a bodge is a little harsh in my opinion.

Thanks very much, I didn't love it just as much. Good idea I never thought of that I'm sure it will melt over time even with an n/a.

With the engine back in I could make up the gear linkage, This was relatively straight forward just time consuming. I did the stabiliser bar first then the linkage. I wanted to fit a type R gear lever as it has a nice swan neck and would give a better position inside the car. This required some modification to the linkage as it is a bit wider than the standard. Once I was happy with the position and clearance I welded all the joints and sprayed. Before final fitting I also poly bushed the mounting point this gives a very positive and tight gear change.
