Cooling Fan

Chris, I don't think the rear edge of the bonnet is in much of a low pressure area (and your vents are a little forward of that) compared to the suction produced underneath the car at speed. your fan shouldn't be on at all when over approx 50km/h whatever the ambient temp.

Registering a Vehicle of Historic Interest

you can register VHI online through the VED page if your car is already historic class but that wasn't my point. Every year there will be cars that become VHI before they're historic VED, so they can't do it online. The point the FBHVC are making, is that the law says you don't need an MOT if your c...

G130 YCF my first sprint car

I think it used to be standard catches only in RG but can't see it in there now? Body (including aerodynamics) 11.4.1. Silhouette of the vehicle must remain unaltered in construction, dimension and material. The silhouette will be taken in the condition in which the car competes (convertible closed ...

Cooling Fan

The ambient temp only changes the time it takes to get up to operating temp. The stat and fan should then hold it at optimum whatever the ambient (within reason). the fixed fan was offered as a towing pack on the 5a (in addition to the electric fan) - I don't think there was ever an engine oil coole...

Cooling Fan

CLM 2010 was hotter than 2018 8)

bonnet vents only work at slow/no forward speed. If your cooling system is that marginal that you feel the need to cut holes in the bonnet, I’d look at that first :mrgreen:

With a Ti in RG, it’s easier to increase power than remove weight.

Registering a Vehicle of Historic Interest

The two are not related. You can change your taxation class to historic in April, providing your car was 40 before the previous January. You can declare your car VHI (and therefore MOT exempt) when the MOT is next due, providing it is over 40 on that day. It doesn’t have to be VHI to be historic VED...

Yep - I had one come loose at speed once :D

They’re not really seals, more like trims - providing the screen has been put in properly :W

Hi

Do you know what type of diff it has? 7HA or 4HA? pm sent re diff cover.

Thanks

Pete
SE5a will be a 4HA - you need a coupe 7HA axle, or a very rare 7HA from one of the first 500 SE5 (if you need the wider version or you’re going to modify it anyway) for your Lotus.
