Chassis modifications for roll cage fitment?

If a traditional 6 point cage is what you intend? Then (with dash still fitted) the front legs land into nothing much. So some bracing between the main chassis rails and outrigger is needed. At the same time do the same for your seat mounts. The main roll hoop will need extension boxes onto the chas...

Debden 7 October 2018

He decided to miss out a section of the track, I mean it was very affective in the fact he went 20 seconds faster... however they decided it counted as 4 wheels off :D

Debden 7 October 2018

I know it wasn’t championship, but had a lot of fun at Deben yesterday. I double drive dads coupe. A few CM competitors were there, was nice to see Lionel Reeves again too.

Daily Driver

Me ol’man uses a 6a as his sole means on transport.

I commuted daily in a 5a for about 4 years.

So yeah, it’s fine. That being said, as soon as I started to work close to central London the commute became hard work in a GTE...

Alternator/Battery problems

Is this in relation to “mighty”?

I seem to remember a powered aerial constantly draining the battery? Then the use of jump starts to recharge the battery?

Do that a few times and you will be amazed how quickly a battery will get damaged and not take a full charge.

LRP 335E Sprint Coupe

Did your “running in procedure” involve disconnecting the dry sump or filling it with some kind of cooking oil...?! :w :lol: No, it involved taking it to the rolling road for half a day with several power runs followed by some very reserved practice runs at Curborough... It did spit a gallon of oil...
