After a few days of driving I realised that this was required to get the perfect clutch throw. Works a treat.

nice simple solution, though a bigger, maybe plastic foot might be a good idea - the bolt will probably thump a hole in your carpet

Yeh I thought of that but I don't need to push it hard to the floor so it should be ok. Good advice though.

when you're fanging through the hills and the red mist descends, you're not going to be gentle with it, you'll be punching it to the floor and back up as quick as you can...

True. Fanging around is pretty common now with the new engine.

Driving around has been fun but as we all know, it is a project car and there is always something we can do to it.
I wanted wider wheels to fill out the wheel arches but not as wide as the usual minilites or superlites. I also wanted something different.
I found these and have been impressed.
Ultralite Enki 13x7 but with an offset of +2 so they don't stick out as far as the usual Ultralites. No spaces required either.
