AE86 Tech #86-20: Back up brake switch


Sometime back while working on my non boosted brake system.  I had an unfortunate mishap of breaking the switch that controls the brake lights.  Being that I was going to the track the following day, and in order to pass tech, working brake lights is a must.  I needed a quick fix.

Since I had disabled the clutch switch from a way earlier tech post, I checked to see if that was possible to use.

Comparing the 2 switches, the only thing really different is the rear plug.  The brake switch is one complete piece, while the clutch is wired with a plug.  Note the plugs on the body harness is different so you'll need to modify it to work with the clutch switch.  I just scrounged through my box of electrical junk and redid the plug. 

Never bothered going to the yard to get the correct switch since the clutch switch is still working like a champ.

Ultimate sacrifice

Since the chief is a Starlet (KP61) guru, he is always acquiring chassis'.  But this chassis will be making one last sacrifice, by donating parts, so it's brothers may live on.  Even though it doesn't really show, it's really bent bad down the center, so it's beyond saving.  Glad i'm not a Starlet fan.

A little negativity

Once you see some of these wheels you'll think twice about what offset really means to you.

Puddi Puddi

A giant pudding called Giga Pudding.  But they sound like they're saying puddi.  Anyways it's a ridiculous commercial.  But it makes hungry for some pudding.

Doing it his way.

People try their hardest to get it JDM with a bit of fast and furious, sinking all kinds of money to get their ride on the media circus. The former neighbor Mark E. does the complete opposite and gets the former lemons car on The Octane Report. Go figure.

Here's the link to the article.

Star or Bull?

Mazda RX 3s that is clad with Rockstar energy color, and Red Bull livery.  I wonder if he has problems holding down a sponsor.  Though I'd be happy with either one.
