Sabre Turbo racer: 'Light Sabre'

I wouldn't worry Alan. Craig's well versed in using the scenery to stop his cars. :lol:

Twin Weber DCNF carbs in the RWD layout. Does it ever work?

There's some very nice direct to head throttle bodies being produced for the cvh by a small company called gradient engineering in Leicester. Also just released roller rockers if their own design. Yes TBs would be a better idea. But unburnt fuel and signed eyebrows. Thanks for the feedback and thoug...

Twin Weber DCNF carbs in the RWD layout. Does it ever work?

I have two sets of 40s with CVH manifold here. Been on the shelf 10 plus years (like many things) although that appears to have been a worthwhile investment none the less. They were always intended for use on the 1900 but never got round to fitting while it running. What I am currently eyeing up is ...

Twin Weber DCNF carbs in the RWD layout. Does it ever work?

Quick post for quick replies as I'm considering a purchase at present. Does anyone have anything positive to say about the twin DCNF setup in the RWD configuration of the SS1? All I hear is comments about fueling issues and bogging down out of bends. Nick K. persevered for many years with them. I th...

SS1 Roll hoop bar

Not a Reliant / "club" design of bar.
I have had this type before and I believe they were manufactured by Alleybars (sp?)

Arguably not as strong as only located by the base plate and not tied into the B pillar.

Goodwood 5 October 2019

Have you tried holding the engine at mid revs (in neutral) after completing a run. Engine under no load but keeps the coolant circulating.

Something I've done with cars that would run hot coming back in at track days, seemed to work in preventing them boiling over.

RELIANT SCIMITAR SS1 SPARE WHEEL FIXING BOLT

Yes, know I have one spare on the shelf here, someone else asked after it but never responded when I provided further details.

Will be a lot less than "redfern reliants" one on ebay!

Ss1 for sale on Copart

Just refreshed my memory on Copart T&Cs as it's been many years since I / we were once a member. Yeah it's all pretty unfriendly stuff, although do everything right and you shouldn't get tripped up with anything unexpected. Online reviews though, gosh, there's a bag of unhappy customers! Think the b...

New V6 (Essex) ALLOY cam timing gear sets

Quick post to say there are still plenty of kits available. I think I've offered to and "served" everyone who had expressed previous interest now, so it's first come first serve at the price advertised here for direct purchases from club and forum members.
