Corky's Scimitars (....currently sprint car fettling )

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...

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.

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.

It's been on the rollers again today and we've gained a massive 15 BHP, so it's now reaching a whopping 139BHP :cloud: The bizarre thing is that the power and torque under 4000 rpm isn't affected, and it's only a bit down up to 5000 rpm.

Here’s another view.

They were made from a cheap pack of Aldi brackets, bent into shape. If I can find some stronger off cuts of metal I’ll remake them.
