Sabre Turbo racer: 'Light Sabre'

Oh, that's unfortunate. Helium make the brakes squeak, much like inhaling from a helium balloon.

Sabre Turbo racer: 'Light Sabre'

I'm liking that there's another gearbox in bits in the background!

Also the sudden surge of progress is good too. Keep it going...

heater control knobs

Ford Zephyr mk3. I don't know if they were fitted to anything else as well?

450. So how do you get that delivered to the floor without backend trying to overtake the front. :?:
Decent tyres & optimized suspension
You forgot immense driving talent too... :mrgreen:
Ah, I see. So you're not planning to drive it yourself then!

Mikey Bikey's Scimega

For balance: The Marcos I share with Iain Daniels has a concentric clutch cylinder, it is an AP racing one, but it's been on the car since we first built it in 2009. We've raced the car for 10 years, fewer races over recent years, but quite a lot for the first 6 or 7 years. It did have a precautiona...

CSCC at Thruxton Sat 21st Sept

I will say that the really bad smoke from my car was on the 1st 1 or 2 laps as it burned off residual oil from the silencer. After that it did continue to smoke a little, indicating an underlying issue before it ingested loads of coolant.

551 A race oddity

Yeah, sorry. I thought I should do a separate race meeting thread, but yes, blown head gasket in qualifying. My woeful start with racing the SS1 continued...

The car is now tucked away in my garage, I won't be looking at it for a month or two, as I have other things that need doing.

The Swinging 60s Group 2 grid wasn't as full as the Group 1, but Phil Otley pulled off a great result to be 2nd overall in his SE5, behind a Lotus Elan. There was some attrition, but you need to finish! John Devlin was 9th. 20190921_154601_001_01.jpg 20190921_154613_006_01.jpg 20190921_170013.jpg 20...
