The Green Machine - Sprint Car Build

Can you not reason with the TVR lump in the Coupe now that you have a ready and willing alternative?

It might be less inclined to throw a wobbly if it isn't always guaranteed centre of attention.

Front damper length?

All wise words Craig, you'll find no conflict from me! Regarding the top ball joints, yes if quality then no problem. But imperative to use high tensile mounting bolts, or mount underneath the top wishbone. Likewise high tensile nylock on the joint itself and done up to the right torque ( which can'...

Front damper length?

Additional to the fragility of the upper wishbones / shock brackets; The standard rubber bushings may not be up to the extra load over time and usage, consider the size of the lowers versus the uppers. Likewise, ball joint wise, the lower balljoint is larger and better placed to deal with the spring...

DRIVING in EU

I'm just looking forward to the reintroduction of the Austin Maestro and Reliant Robin post brexit. Strong and stable just like the government.

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

If you're really rather keen, you could always approach Matt and see how dearly he wants to hold onto the position.

SS1 wheel HUB (not stud) nut socket size?

3/4 socket sets can be had for about 40 quid.
Quality not great, but given the size of the bits I doubt you will break them. Worthwhile investment.

Oh go on!
It's a great track, and consider the possibility of Josh beating Nick on the Keyser "home turf"!

Just be sure to pack your sarnies as the burger van price board might give you a heart attack Steve....
