I just did the analysis of my latest oil sample after giving the car a service on the weekend. I was curious to see the results of this engine oil sample as this is the first Valvoline oil sample since I switched from the Mobile ! that was previously being used.
 
I am very happy with the results as the indicated wear rate has actually reduced with the Valvoline Synpower oil.

Spent a little time today fitting up my new NRG quick release sheering hub adapter.
It took me a little extra time seeing as the short hub I bought seemed to be for the earlier version MR2 that still used a brass ring in the back of the boss for the horn contact, mine being a later JDM it had a sealed contact with a plug sticking out for the horn to plug into. So I was able to remove the brass ring out of the back of the short hub adapter and this gained me enough room to fit the short hub over the plug and then I just wired the horn into the existing plug. I did have to trim the plug down by a couple of millimeters but its all fitting nicely now and the horn working with no problems.
 
 
 

 

 
all in all I am very happy with the quick release and loving having a nice momo steering wheel to hold on to again.

 
Sorry the pictures are not the best quality.

Yeah seems to be the way with pretty much most mods these days! I think they just want to drive around in stock Prius's!

I don't think that's what dudeman meant lol. I'm not exactly sure what he meant TBH.

There is an extensive build thread for my car here: http://www.mr2australia.com/mr2play/tm.aspx?m=18316

Oh you mean the quick release? it is of very good build quality and I have not heard of any issues with those particular NRG quick release hubs so I'm not too concerned.

Yeah that bizzo - the steering wheel looks cool, but when i'm hanging on to the magic circle even the remotest possibility of it coming off in my hands...

HaHaHa no I am very confident in the engineering behind it I made sure of that before I put it on.

So I just got an email from the import company in regards to my new wheels, they said they should be delivered to their warehouse next Thursday so I am eagerly awaiting the call to say I can come pick them up.
 
Have also now ordered the new tyres to go on them so hopefully fingers crossed I should be able to show off the new wheels in a little over a week from now.
