Re: 750mc 6hr relay race

Hi Rob.
Life here is good. Im looking to do a track day at Pau Arnos in a couple of weeks. But the temperature had just dropped. Last week I was in shorts, now is 4deg and I'm trying to sort the heating.
Hope you are enjoying your autos.

Re: Retro fit independant rear suspension

A new building!! Product Evaluation for Improvements!! OMG! They are really rolling their sleeves up and aiming high. They will probably still be ready before me. Iv just got to make a doorway into the barn big enough for the Stylus. But with 750mm dry stone walls & tree trunk roof supports - I keep...

Re: My Brexit

Take the thermpstat out , remove that silly metal sphere and it's tag then drill out that hole to 8mm , more if needed as you experiment . It will ensure there's always a water flow even while waiting to warm up from cold . Essential with a modified engine The Dunnell has a decent size bypass for w...

Re: My Brexit

As I'm using the Stylus quite frequently now - 70 min round trip to my French lessons. I have had a few (minor) issues. Indicators not working properly, found out it was the alarms fault. A puncture. And the rear axle lateral linkage came undone. I'm not sure how this happened as I only adjusted it ...

Re: 175-60-13 tyres

Why 185 's though :?: It'll understeer under hard cornering I think with over 300bhp and 300ftlb of torque on tap understeer will not be my major problem :D , Shooter That's OK if your in command of the bends.
