551 A race oddity

Well, nothing too photo worthy done today. I bit of sanding back flo-coat on my air damn mould (not been touched for a long time). A little grp work, glassing up the nose strakes in moulds borrowed from CNHSS1. I’ve left them in the mould to cure, for a bit longer, as it’s not been the warmest of da...

551 A race oddity

I've been thinking that it was about time I got back on to this. Aside from the Christmas Daytime Running Lights, I've not touched it for months. Yesterday was raining, then sleeting and windy / cold, so seemed like a good day to hibernate indoors. This morning was snowing and +1 degree C according ...

Brake servo which one

I'll declare up-front I'm coming at this from a competition bias. However, I never liked the brake pedal feel with a remote servo. My preference was to put the servo in the bin and press the brake pedal harder. The pedal feel is much better without them. Correct selection of a bigger master cylinder...

Nice looking SS1 1800Ti

The car is not mine. Beyond what you can read in the advert, I'm more than happy to impart all of my knowledge of the car and vendor for everyone: The car is for sale in Southam. I live close to Southam. Should you need any more information than that, interested parties would probably find contactin...

Ben's SS1 - SSF novice sprint car

I didn't reply about the shoulder straps, as I've used the cage harness bar. I did look at bolting back to the chassis, but as it drops away I was looking at making a small tower bracket to bring the mounts level. I think other people have bolted a bar across the chassis to get a level mounting, but...

RR, there is an MSA requirement for 3mm plate of a minimum size for harness mounting. Always check the Bluebook for this sort of thing.

551 A race oddity

I've been asked a few times recently about where I got my replacement steering colunm UJ, which I used in place of the original rubber coupling. I've edited the original post on page 4 of this thread, but I thought I'd add it here too This is the orginal coupling - aged & weathered, but it would hav...

Are you opening a Beemer dealership?
