Is that aimed at anyone in particular Tom?

The 5.125" trigger wheels one with the 4" centre is the easiest
you can also pull one off a Ford CVH.

You have to machine the CVH wheel as well as the pulley so unless you've got access to free machining the Trigger wheels pulley may be a cheaper option.

you should be ok then - believe you just have to cut back the centre so it fits on the outer of the Mini damper - a lathe with a moderate sized chuck should be up to the job. Theres some info and tech drawinds on minfinity I think.

It looks really good when done

got my megajolt kit today. started soldering it together. soooo easy to do. broken my multi meter though so need to go and get a new one before testing the voltages.

might put up a seperate post in the "other projects section" on how to put it together, although it will be very similar to the autolabs site.

This seems to be the spot for all matters megajolt now...

Just got my Trigger Wheels trigger wheel, looks very serviceable and only weights 125g grams. Ask me if you'd like pictures and a write up on it's installation - there's already a fair bit of info online.

Also got a letter from Parcel Force saying they're holding my self assembly kit from the US of A to ransom! £10.27 for vat is fairy muff I suppose but £13.50 for collecting it for the chancellor seems a bit steep, no wonder they're making a huge profit again. Worth bearing in mind if you decide to order direct as well.

I've bought loads from China off Fleabay and this is the first time I've had this >_<

the more info and pics the better, since each person will have a different way of doing it.

and people wonder why we want to sort it as a present......................

Miniboo,

If that was aimed at me I haven't even got my Megajolt yet!

I'd think small is good - the same as the jolt's connector?

Check out Drallim.com for ideas

Sorry was aimed at minimadme.

took me about 2 hours if that to solder the kit together.

that includes having to go out and buy a new soldering iron aswell. think i might start doing these kits myself and selling them!!
