G130 YCF sprint car

Thanks Steve, do you run a heater? No but we have a heated screen which to be honnest is not very good. If your going mod prod you can obviously remove carpets and insulation so you can keep moisture down. When the car sits outside it does leak some water into the footwells which you can simply wip...

G130 YCF sprint car

I removed the quartlights last winter in the DET.

I would say that the poly is actually a better seal than the original glass. You need to really pull the door hard to close it fully.

Check out how I did it from the link in my signature below

Roadgoing silhouette

You mean the King-Cork-Oakes-Cork Sabre :) Yes we had 13's on that. Spacers on front and no issues with rear arches which remained as standard as far as I can remember. Certainly no extensions. SS1 arches will need a tweek based on Corky fitting 13's to the DET. Edit Photo below of rear arch from Co...

Id gues demon tweeks but havent got a catalogue to hand.
The one pictured on the Oakes car was made by Chria Eades iirc when he built the car, its machined nylon as i recall
Yep not fitted by us.

I imagine you could make one easily enough from fiberglass if you can't buy one.

MSA BATTERY ISOLATORS

Ours shown below. Extinguisher pull does tend to let water into the outer cable and can seize if car is outside.

MSA BATTERY ISOLATORS

Extinguisher pull is on the panel just below the windscreen on OS.

Battery isolator is on the OS wing but mounted on an inset circular panel so that the pull does not protrude.

I'll take a few photos

MSA BATTERY ISOLATORS

Battery isolator bottom left. Extinguisher top middle. We have isolator pulls on the outside too. Edit We also have a toggle on/off with "flick" plastic cover just above the start button on the rh side visible if you zoom in on the photo. The isolator on the Lh side is activated by the external pull...

MSA BATTERY ISOLATORS

I think there may be some changes for 2020 Ben based on my recollection of a previous post on the Blue book.

Where fitted both must operable by the driver when in the drivers seat with belts fastened and tight.. I think that's what it said.

I'll post some photos of where we have them.

Goodwood 5 October 2019

So the reason CM ran 2 practice runs is because had they not the last timed run would have been an improver run because only 3 timed runs count in CM afaik :?:

Is this something for the AGM if more events start to have 1 practice :?:
