I've decided to stick with a Scimitar for next season. I haven't found anything that floats my boat. Had a look at a couple of Boxster S and S2000s and even an MX5, but couldn't get excited about any
You've not got the hair to style for an MX5 Corky🤣🤣

Castle Combe 20 October 2018

Congratulations Josh, a cracking time well worthy of the 25pts, and by some margin! Also a decent points haul in CM.

It’s just a shame the way the event went. I managed just over 5 seconds off my PB, and know where I can go faster.

Castle Combe 20 October 2018

It’s always great to see you Craig, but it’s a looong way to come and spectate so I don’t blame you. You need to stop turning up without the car too..... :wink:

I’ll post the link for the live timing.

Josh however, I’ll see you tommorow. :twisted:

Goodwood 6 October 2018

Thanks chaps. It was unusual to not see you at Goodwood Roger! You didn’t miss much. Craig - the suspension setup is as much down to you as me. :wink: I had reduced the rear damping to try to stop it being too much of a handful. The viscous LSD doesn’t help, with its on/off nature. Before practice (...

Goodwood 6 October 2018

The weather progressively got worse. I think I was fastest in practice! Everyone got a damp first run, then some people did a wet second run before it was abandoned.

whats the ss1 brake servo from?

Cant find any pictures - but I found an off the shelf generic wilwood bias box that bolts on with just a bit of drilling and a couple of clevis pins. Got it second hand off ebay I'm afraid so dont know part nos etc. One of this winters mods.

Got a spare pedal box here if you need one.

SS1 1600Ti Sprint Car

After goodwood we pulled the car apart again :roll: First up was a new waterpump as the old one was leaking, we also fitted beefed up rear arms. I was also sick of the mess of wiring etc infront of me so decided to refit 3/4 of an SS1 dash and make a gauge pod, fitting a decent water temp gauge at t...

SS1 1600Ti Sprint Car

2018; Over the winter we didnt do a great deal. I dropped the water so it didnt freeze, we also fitted some fresh rear tyres and pulled the arches another inch to cover the 235s without contact. Gurston down was its first outing, and the car was monster. IIRC 4th on scratch in both saturday and sund...
