Wakey wakey

Yeah, Cacades is a funny corner, easy to turn in too early, then run out of road on the exit, but i's fast & comes up very quickly after Old Hall. Once you've got the hang of Druids, it's a good place to catc people then have a go at them on the run to Lodge, where you can make a dive down the insid...

Sounds good! Other a good result too. It seemed to take me a while to get to grips with Oulton, there's quite a lot going on there. Did you do the full circuit? It's quite a long lap, but is quite narrow in places, with odd off-camber sections. Re. Silverstone National, I don't mind it. Maybe I'm ju...

What cars did you see today? (Non-Scimitar)

Wow, that Bentley Bentagay (deliberate spelling) looks even worse than standard.

Now that other Bentley is a different matter...

Coupe for Sale SRE 353G

I'm yet to agree a collection date with Nick.

However, all the plaudits should go to the former owners, for a nicely modified and maintained car.

By popular demand, here are some cable ties (and a photo):

Controversially, I've used them to tie cables. Yes I will snip the tails when I'm done.

551 A race oddity

I’m reading it all :D What have you done with the rear ARB? Rose jointed on standard bar? I've made a new larger diameter rear ARB, with alloy mounts to the chassis. Also with rose jointed drop links. It has some adjustability to soften it off if required. The front ARB is quite a bit bigger, so (I...

Wow, that last post was long. I dont suppose many folks will read that. More photos needed, but not in this post... I bled the brakes today, I have never taken so long to bleed any brakes before. I just couldn't get fluid through the Tilton master cylinders (x2). I've used them before, usually you j...

I’ve not updated my project thread for a while, but I’ve been busy. I’ve been doing a load of finishing off jobs, so this post is more words, less photos. I’ve worked through: Rear coil overs fitted, with rose joint spacers turned down to fit the width of the chassis & semi-trailing arms, as they ar...

Split Rim Compomotive TF

14" split rim sections maight be tricky to find second hand, as it's not the most common wheel diameter. However MB wheels will make any rim section for you to order and they are about the most keenly priced. I've bought from them, they were easy to deal with. http://www.mb-racingwheels.com/ On the ...
