Thermostat or not?

Yes fit one. It was probably removed to mask an issue, which you seem to be adressing.

I hope 2018 is better for you then. Rolling at Craner Curves doesn't sound like much fun! Was a re-shell required? Or lots of panel beating?

But more Reliant related, I have an SE5a chassis over with Iain Daniels at the moment which is slowly being built as a race, hopefully for the year after next! Do you have a plan for where you're going to race the SE5a? I hope the season in the Fiesta goes well, how long have you been racing it now?

I looked at this the other day, before commenting on race cars. I thought speed events had been brought in line with other disciplines in 2017, but it doesn't seem to be that straight forward. Below are from this years Blue Book from section S (Sprints Hill Climbs and Drag Racing): 20180209_214207.j...

I've emailed Dave, but so far no joy. Hence asking here.

"1800 Ti" graphics

Does anyone out there have computer graphics files for the "SCIMITAR" & "1800 Ti" boot lid decals?

I don't want the actual decals, I'm looking to get some vinyl graphics cut for my SS1 race car based on the original decals, hence asking if anyone has these as graphic files.

Thanks.

Yeah, the race licence bit is more expensive to get. Unlike a speed licence, you can't just apply to the MSA for it. You need to pass an ARDS test with an assessor / instructor and have a medical. The closest place to you Corky is probably Oulton Park, see the details here: http://www.msvtrackdays.c...

Clearly, if you do a 40 minute race, you will need more fuel than 4 off 1 minute runs, but then you've got 10 times more track time, so that's the pay back. You'll use as much tow car fuel, towing the car to a race as you would to a speed event, so that's the same. Tyres, aren't as big an expense as...

It's important to note that forced induction uses a x1.7 multiplier on engine capacity. So 1.8 litre turbo is classed as a 3.1 litre engine as equivalency to a naturally aspirated engine. In speed events, it used to be a x1.4 multiplier, but this was brought in line with other disciplines last year ...
