Wishbone Spacer Size?

Lower castor angle increases low speed turn in, but reduces high speed. Greater castor, adds high speed turn in but makes low speed less sensitive. Along with all the other geometry nuances (some intentional, some as a result of reliants parts bin economics... :| ) adding castor (more washers at fro...

Ben's SS1 - SSF novice sprint car

I pour oil through the core, into the oil inlet, and wait until it runs out the outlet (normally connected to sump), spin the impeller so the journal bearings are coated.

Almost ready for paint!

Commenting on repairing old GRP cars is a bit like commentating on someone's else's parenting style, or a womans dress sense--do so at your own peril!! As for Slice Ed, his resto is unlikely to see the road before fossil fuels are banned, so it's academic how it's repaired :lol: :lol: (Luv ya Terry ...
