551 A race oddity

Some of Mr Hughes' videotography of the same run as my in-car above. The puff of smoke at the cross-over is the LH rear tyre catching on the wheel arch, another little tweak required.

Here's an early run, where the engine wasn't pulling cleanly due to the split pipe to the fuel pressure reg. However, it's a different angle on things.

551 A race oddity

Ok, I lied, it will be posted this evening. Here's my final run; engine running cleanly & pushing the car a little more. The camera as a passenger view is a tad low (same technical measurement as before). I need to get a proper cage mount for it.

551 A race oddity

Great start (hope the oil is an easy fix) Annoyed that David Pattison didn’t get back to me though, I asked him if there was any chance of testing this week after my rolling road :( He can be a bit tricky to get hold of. I just followed up my email & answer phone message until he was in & could ans...

Up to now, the only time I’ve driven the car is manoeuvring it in 1st & reverse gear. However, I’ve now completed a shake-down test!

A bit more wrapping done during last week, the nose this time: 20190510_204558.jpg Then this weekend I was booked in at Iain Daniels Classic Motorsport to get the wheel alignment & suspension set-up sorted.

Rescued SS1.. The Golden Goose!!

That needs a bit more than just a polish. It's good to see what the galv chassis will withstand though.

Thanks guys, it's amazing what a difference it makes getting it (almost) one colour, then adding some garish decals.
