Over the last couple years the priorities in my life have changed. Had Matrix Garage grown big enough to hire enough employees and leave them to running it while I pursued other things I would have happily taken that route but it has generally stayed just big enough to keep me working overtime. 
I have decided to start focusing my carreer and passions elsewhere and that means that supporting the AW, AE, 4A and related communities has had to be moved much lower on the priority list. I have decided to keep the store up to provide parts that only we offer, or other things that are hard to come by elsewhere. You will notice many big name, readily available products have been taken down and we will continue to do so. It's just not worth our time trying to compete with the big corporations selling at cutthroat prices and it just takes up more of my time. 
I will try to keep providing those parts that we make or that we have developed and sell as a service to the community but understand that now this is something I do in my spare time because I don't want to leave people hanging. 
I try to make shipments and process orders at least twice a week. If you want Amazon next day shipping buy from Amazon. I will do my best to keep order time and customer service at a reasonable level but have some understanding. I am not making money on this and it takes away from my other work and other issues that are very important to me right now. 
I have always wanted to make our designs and other information open source and available to the community but to do so properly would take a lot of time making sure that models and drawings were complete, accurate, or properly described. To go through everything and make sure it was something that I felt comfortable releasing to the community. I would love to find someone who was willing to help me do this. Someone in engineering school or passionate about this to help go through 3D scans, CAD designs, and information to prepare it. If you are interested feel free to email me.

This is the Pilot bearing needed for an A series crank and T50 trans. Longitudinal clutch kits will come with this bearing but if you are using a larger clutch and flywheel from a transverse transmission you will need to buy this bearing separately.

T50 release bearing


This is the release bearing for T50 transmissions. Most kits come with a bearing but you may need this for unique applications such as using a transverse clutch kit in a longitudinal application. For example a later 215mm or 225mm 4AGZE clutch and flywheel.

BC Racing AE86 Corolla coilover


Matrix Garage is moving away from BCracing after bad experiences trying to deal with the company with various issues. One of those issues is that they advertise their coilovers for 1986  giving the impression they will work on MK1a cars but they will not. The front camber plate and the rear knuckle are different and need a different design. BCracing was unwilling to make a MK1a design. In this process we also realized their camber adjustment slots where they mount to the knuckle were oriented horizontally where the stock ones are vertical.

Price: $1,000.00
