Post B & H MC Eagle Sprint Goodwood
Brighton and Hove 's Goodwood sprint is on the 3rd August and I'm entered again this year . Hopefully I can drive quick enough by then to do some good . I've had steroids in my left shoulder , four physio sessions plus two sessions of acupuncture . Once off the line and through the 'box' , hopefully it'll not be too paifull .
We'll just have to see on the day , I'm definitely not cancelling my entry . I had planned to remove the steering arms that I modified back in 2005 to replace them with standard ones but re-modified for anti-bump as before ----- however , this time around 10mm's longer for lighter steering effort.
A friend was doing it for me due to the shoulder issue but they're not done :x ----- if you want something doing aye :roll:

I'll be more than delighted if the Radical's not in my class again though :lol:

My friend (Dennis Silman - SILTECH RACING) has just posted the steering arms back to me but only ' tacked ' in position in case the angles of arm and ' drop down ' aren't as I wanted . I've checked them on an upright and the anti-bump drop and distance to the disc is spot on. The arms are now 20mm's longer including the ' drop ' , so the steering effort will be lighter --- rather easier on the shoulder.
I originally had no drop down on the standard RACELEDA spec arms , so bumpsteer was possible depending on spring rates . With my 2.4 rack the drop down plus closer to the disc arm , made the steering very close to 1.7 turns lock to lock [ the gold item ]--- great for high speed correction/reaction but tricky now my own body geometry isn't it's original spec :lol:

I'll weld these up at the weekend then hopefully fit and adjust toe , in time for the 3rd August :P

Wait till you see the Sports Libre list of entries Stu :shock:

2 ESCORT BHP :?:
2 GT40's BHP 6OO
2 LOTUS BUICK BHP :?:
1 CORTINA 5.7 V8 BHP 500
1 SPORTS 2000 Duratec BHP :?:
Jeff Wiltshire's Supercharged SYLVA Phoenix BHP @ WHEELS 300 (driven this at Abbeville & it's bloody quick)
Plus me at 231bhp ----- I've beaten the main GT40 driver but he's done my lap times early this year at Goodwood , so I'll struggle to beat him in these hot tarmac conditions.
Also beaten the grunty Cortina 5.7 last season . Hopefully I may beat the two Escorts ------- but there's no chance I'll beat Jeff or the two LOTUS BUICK's and the Sports 2000 .

That probably puts me 6th in class if I perform as hoped :(
Ah well --- you can't win em all :)

Well , a bit disappointed not to have put in my best 2012 lap time of 93.39 sec's but did get just below my TWMC 2013 time of 94.56 sec's at 94.18 sec's . Wasn't enough to come near any honours but managed to come 4th from 10 :roll: (one Escort didn't arrive :o )
The really quick driver/car was the SPORTS 2000 Duratec racer at 87. :?: sec's then Jeff's PHOENIX 2nd at 89. :?: sec's , Glen Mason's GT40 3rd at 91. :?: sec's -------------------------- amazingly I managed to beat the rest ---- CORTINA V8 , ESCORT Formula 2 chassis COSWORTH , Both LOTUS BUICK drivers , 2nd GT40 driver.

The SPORTS 2000 driver surprised me with his stunning time even allowing for the car spec --- he was an enormous guy --- very nearly as wide as he was tall :shock: I reckon around 20 plus stone :o
Having said that he apparently used to circuit race Formula 3 cars when younger :wink:

STILL GOT STEERING WHEEL WOBBLE under very hard breaking :? The new steering arms did the trick regarding me being able to drive fairly quickly without too much pain :)
