    It was so long ago I don't recall the original details. What I do know is the master cylinder has a smaller diameter than the original, to help brake response & pedal pressure. I recall there was a thread on this form that detailed out the part number and what variant car it came off of.

    For the rod, I purchased a long bolt off of Fastenal with the same thread that interfaces the clevis for the pedal. Then I cut the head off to the correct length, and balled the one end that interfaced the master cylinder.

    Yes I bought a backup from Tim, and have been running one for many years since they use to be standard production back in the day.

    It's been awhile since the last update. I purchased a different house earlier this year and had the opportunity to finish the garage how I wanted it, kind of a once in a life time opportunity. I only got out to the track 2 times this year, the new year will be much better.

    The finished garage has full hvac, running water, all spray foam insulation, lots & lots of electrical (14 circuits, 5 220v outlets, and a 50a outside outlet for my motorhome) led lighting, in celing speakers, finished floor, and best of all a lift!

    On to the car update:

    I installed a set of fty's billet lift off door hinges, makes working on the car way easier now. They are a great design, super easy to install and the doors lift off easy with good clearance to avoid damaging the door edge to fender. They have a locking feature so when the door is shut it prevents them from lifting off. Highly recommended!

    I'm in the process of converting the car a DBW throttle body. There are some posts on here describing the benefits, but the summary is better driveability, starting/idle, and enables torque control features if you have a supporting ecu. I chose to use the evo 10 pedal, and a bosch 82mm throttle body. I purchased a Magnus manifold to tb adaptor. We just finished up making some Vanjen clamps to Bosch 74 & 82mm DBW throttlebodies. The 74 is for my Evo IX, and the 82 on my DSM. My father in-law made these up for me, he has a cnc in his garage. They turned out really nice.

    I went from the fastest local 4g63 (for about a decade), to the third fastest in one event at Maperformance`s prooving grounds this September. Wow, Im feeling motivated now! I need to step up my game, so I'll share more as I go. I have some good projects over the winter. I would love to get into the 7s in 2020!

    Hey Mark, I was trying to look at your old pictures, but when you had an 8.50 cage did you need rocker bars? How about the d bars? Did you need a rear floor bar to mount them to like your 25.5 cage?

    To my knowledge the D bars are require for an 8.5 cage, and are really meant for unibody cars. Also, rocker bars are not required for an 8.5. The 25.5 doesn't need the D bars. The north/south inner floor bars that are called "inner frame rails" that intersect the rear cross member, then to a bar called the vertical cage support. This system of 3 bars replace the D bar function in an 8.50 cage. The SFI 25.5 spec book lays it all out.

    Thanks. I'm debating on making a move to the 8.50 cage now, and reading through the rulebook it's fairly clear, but then I hear horror stories of inspectors not approving things. Been a challenge to figure out if we really need the rear cross member to connect to d bars to like the FWD cars do.
