you're absolutely right ! had to double double check it

seems like i was reading a catalouge from an "avensis" , thanks ian ! 

now i know that those corolla boxes still wont fit, may have to further check  the ones from the scion  

Try checking UK forums etc, the Avensis is what Toyota Europe sold as the family car instead of the Camry

Isn't the 03-08 Matrix the ZZ-engined one, which would therefore use C-series boxes?

did further reading and saw that 09-13 corolla matrix (zre152 chasis) uses the 2az and e series combo 😄 and they even have an AWD version 😮

Please open your left passenger door to check the gear box model. It is hardcoded in a sllver badge with the VIN number, or call toyota directly to ask the gearbox model

Australian zre in my version (2010 up) use EC60, previous zre version uses c60

USA uses different version

Don't use a clutch LSD, it requires a lot more maintenance. I use the one from Quaife, it will tell which gearbox will it suit. You also need to buy few tapering bearing from toyota. It does not come with the LSD

Installing LSD is not cheap, you might fix whatever stuff inside the gearbox, I fix a couple of rings inside my box

Are you still considering getting another car?

its not so bad, you get what you pay for,  seems like its DIY-able, and the "stuff " inside the gearbox, could be your syncros and bearings - which is pretty much a rebuild afaik..

Beautiful cool cloudy day at winton, with no rain in sight, Finally broke into the 1:50 mark and beat it by two seconds a few sessions later. With a1rms back on the car, my confidence on braking at the 25/50m mark came back.  Learnt more on gearing through corners, and putting foot down earlier, room for improvement to break pb next track day

 

Thanks for looking !

Not a bad day, although i wanted abit more sun as it was cloudy. 25°C felt a lot colder.

Got off track on the sweeper of first session right off the pits 😅, broke a little bit of my confidence which lead to being a bit more cautious the whole day. 

Didnt know what tyre pressure were initially set at but this time it only went up to 30psi (previous track day was 5-6psi more) for me i felt like it didnt warm up enough.

I also took out the strut bar halfway through the day as i felt the car was too stiff and twitchy (21 clicks and front strut), and went back to 7 clicks on the fronts. Car felt better swinging into the sweeper and the boob.  

Either way, still had fun 😄 and extra seat time and experience is good too, now looking at getting an lsd to help through the "boob" sections (turns 6-9) as my forearms started to hurt after the day 😛

 

Thanks for looking !

Nugget Nationals Track Day 2019 - Broadford

Times as per computime:

1:59.434 1:26.888 1:28.091 1:21.701 1:24.258 1:18.30 1:17.86

1:34.753 1:17.812 1:17.508 1:18.577 1:19.128 1:19.077


Nice and cloudy Melbourne day top of 18° ... although it was showers and raining everywhere else, Melbourne decided not to shed its rain in the area until the last sessions in the afternoon. It was my first time racing on the track of broadford, its another level comparing to what im used to at winton. Its 850m shorter than winton and also has 12 turns, its usually used for motorcycle racing. The differences ive noticed straight away are the hills, the course has some nice uphills, and downhills. So this track has given me another perception on the car and a new learning curve on how to deal with gearing throughout the lowspeed corners on downhills and uphills. Paid attention to the tyre pressures today keeping them between 34-36 psi. Spun out on the same lap on turns 1 and 9 😅  in session 3  after adjusting the tyre pressures from 40 down to 36 and two clicks stiffer (from 7 clicks) on the coils on the fronts.

As a final note, broadford super fun on another level with the ups and downs, tune in for the next track day

Thanks for looking !
