Does anyone know if the speedo drive on the MK1 box fits the Mk2 box ?

On my own, and will be camping.

I’ll bring my burner and kettle anyway!

What time are you planning on getting there Steve, and are you bringing an electric kettle ? :wink:

It's not been down to Northants. Which is a bit of a relief, because it's taken three attempts and I still have a disappointing figure. If I'd made three trips down there to find that out, I'd have been looking for a box of matches and a can petrol :lol:

I can’t see why I couldn’t elect for it not to count as a championship run. After all, I could choose to just pack up after three runs.
My comment was a bit of a wind up Steve; looks like it worked :lol:

I'm sure you can do exactly what you say :wink:
Haha, put your fishing tackle down. :lol:

We’re only 22 BHP apart, so it’s not a massive amount. I believe Ben’s car has an aftermarket cam and is running higher boost. Which would easily account for the difference. I’m taking 1Bs with me to Anglesey, but will start on 1As to see where we are. If CM only count the first three runs, I may do...

1C is fine if you're running list 1A tyres and don't want the option to run 1Bs.

Back on the dyno this morning. It was in good company alongside an Escort Cosworth rally car, Healey 3000 rally car and a Mk1 Golf GTi... The only difference to the last run is that it now has the standard cam and I could get the ignition timing slap bang on 15' btdc. It's not the result I was hopin...

True, but you can’t run 1B tyres in Class 1C.

It’s a choice between having this one ground, or finding a vernier pulley to get the most out of the twin spark cam I’ve already had Autosprinterised. Or if anyone out there has a twin spark engine and fancies an Autosprint cam that was ground from a brand new cam, please drop me a PM and you can ha...

Cleaned up with new shells and rings. Just the head to do and then I'll have a usable spare engine.

Just debating whether to send the cam to Autosprint for a re-grind.

SS1 Suspension - considerations

The traders would be your best bet for speed. QRG sell AVO and GW sell Spax. It’ll be IRO £600 with the springs though !

You could save a few quid by going direct to GAZ, but it’s a six week lead time.
