Re: New gearbox parts

What ratios did you go for?
I have heard that he does a proper long 1st.

I've got a BGH E8 in the Fury (tuned zetec) which is good, but im thinking first could be a bit longer as in the Alps on the hairpins im sort of between gears.

Maybe i just need a bigger pair and go a bit quicker.

Re: T5 in a stylus

That'll be an English axle killer if not heavily modified or did you fit a narrow Atlas :?: Still on the english axle, and I think the lack of traction will still come into play, but I will go and see Phil peacock about such things. Phil peacock is the guy that built the drive trains for fords wrc ...

Re: T5 in a stylus

Doesn't 5th get mangled when you open the box up?
Wouldn't a BGH E8 box do or something from spc gearboxes?

I never saw my ones get that bad.

Blyton 19th Sept with the JPSC

Hi everybody, I dunno how many of you look at the JPSC forum but they are tagging on with Mazda on Track. If youre a member of JPSC theres a discount code and i think a club offer on top of that. Could be worth a look, I believe that the last one they did saw 6 cars from the JPSC. more info here htt...

Re: IOWCC 2015 Season

A few of the Fury guys have something similar but it looks like a pair of underpants from above as they have two semi circular zipped cut outs to make getting in an out easier. one drivers side one passenger side.

Re: Pro comp/ protech dampers

minis seem to get on quite nicely with a roller bearing set up in the top arm. Shooter I did this side ways step (not an upgrade) and found that the roller bearings were pushing on the steel tube and ever so slightly dented it. (It was actually MikeB off here that spotted it.)
