    Being in Australia I find them great. The online buying works well and their postage is quick and efficient. Essential for overseas buying. The prices here are usually very high.

    Hi, good guide but a little beyond me with a car on the drive and a socket set.
    I should get the same result by positioning the lower arm at a slight downward angle and then tightening.

  • midlife martyr replied to the topic 'Remap' in the forum.

    I would get it checked out first before booking a remap, it sounds like you have an issue which a remap probably wouldn't solve, getting a code reader on it would be a good starting point.

    Yes done that courtesy of the company car insurance company about 10 years ago. It was part of their "drive to survive" program. Great fun, and ultimately shows you that when grip gets very low you've got no hope of controlling the car at anything over walking pace.
    The skid pan car was FWD as that was representative of the majority of cars, so you will need to check what cars they can provide if you expect to improve your TF handling skills.

  • KentJohn replied to the topic 'Remap' in the forum.

    Hi pgew,

    My experience is that the remap certainly makes for a much smoother power curve across the rev range, but I didn't experience a lack of grunt below 4k as you describe prior to remap. Are you sure that the basics have been covered - spark plugs and coils firing consistently, no air leaks in the manifolds etc.
    The remap also gives a lovely burble and pop if you request it from Mark at Z&F - especially good if you have a stainless steel aftermarket exhaust! Enjoy! :woohoo:

  • ralnavman created a new topic ' Aghhhhh...Bumper Screws & Headlights !! MGF' in the forum.

    First real good look under the rear of the car, but disaster at the front..

    Crikey peeps, but just where does one jack these cars up on?? Goodness, aren't they really low. Came off the jack twice...fortunately before I got under the car.
    But, rear subframe was surprisingly not too bad, quite a bit of surface rust but I ladled the Hydrate 80 on and tomorrow, if it is still dry, I will be Waxoyling where I can. Even the coolant pipes weren't too bad, again surface rust. Bit of an oil leak which is confusing to see where it is coming from as I have it above where the oil filter is and on the other side of the engine where the dip stick goes in. More to look at tomorrow.

    But where I really have a problem (the smallest of things!!) is removing the headlights. The screw inside of the wing which attaches to the big plastic stay of the rear headlight which means I can't use heat. Why they use screw headed in these places I do not know. There is nothing to grip onto. Bad light stopped play but unless anyone has a good idea, I guess I will end up having to drill it off tomorrow. Don't really want to as I'm not sure how I will resolve it when I need to put it back as I don't know whats on the other side of the screw!

    Any thoughts ?????

  • pgew created a new topic ' Remap' in the forum.

    I found the 160 has nothing there when putting my foot down and intend to get a remap. My experience, along with everyone else, is that the 160 keeps going after about 4k revs, but lacks grunt from the off. I'd love to hear from anyone with experience if the remap provides much better torque from the lights, and what else it does and doesn't (Z&F will be the remappers by the way, of course)...

    ps except for an Audi Quattro (original type coupe) - which isn't quite FWD I suppose.

    My poor old 135 spun accelerating on a damp roundabout with no warning. I was lucky as it just ended upon wrong way round on an empty roundabout, but it was a salutary reminder that I can't drive - I was thinking of a skid-pan to upgrade my lack of skills - anyone tried that? I have also driven FWD every car (1st was an MG1100 when I was 18) so far.
