Re: Mounting points and advice for a 6 point cage into a 5a.

I must say I was surprised too, when the MSA Chief Scrut. told me a front cage was not required, so I decided to speak directly to the MSA and it was their technical people who told me, what I have said.

The series is The Fiesta challenge cup in Northern Ireland.

Re: Mounting points and advice for a 6 point cage into a 5a.

Also, just as a matter of form. I contacted the MSA earlier this year about a cage for a racing Fiesta. A 1.25. It appears the car does not need a front cage because of the cc However, any front cage that IS fitted must comply with the MSA rules. I am just saying, in case some scrut turns the car do...

Re: Autotest link on You Tube (SE5a)

It was Eamon who built my 6R2, and who fitted the essex with the triple DCNFs. It is a small world isn't it?? :wink: He did the suspension set up on my SE6a. Handled beautifully for a few hours right up until my steering rack died!! He did warn me it was scored to hell. :D Yound Eamon is keeping me...

Though I have to say things have improved slightly, since they had an ex-driver sat on the stewards panel.

Re: Tyre treatment?

Hi Steve, I couldn't be 100% but I would think the Dunlops were Crossplies. The ACB10s may be harder than the R888s etc. but they do go off after about 3 heat cycles. It isn't that noticeable (to me) but the professional teams simply throw new tyres at the cars for every test/qually/race etc. I mean...

Re: Tyre treatment?

It will be horses for courses I am sure, but although not allowed in FF1600 the paint on stuff has been tried - and is still being tried! but lap times do not appear to improve whatsoever so generally it is not recommended (For FF1600) New tyres appear to be the only way to go. BTW the tyres used by...

Re: Tax Exempt

Mmm, in my case it is slightly different, as the age related thing will probably be of no use as I am liable to change it to a NI one anyway, so I dont really mind what they send.

Agreed, that point had been corrected right at the beginning of this thread.

Re: Licence Upgrade

Nat B race, covers 99% of what I would do as well, but only for British Isles. Most of the bigish (in terms of what I would do) race meetings on the continent need Nat A. SPA Summer Classic and that sort of thing. The real big ones, like Pau, Monaco and Le Mans need international.
