Blue GTC on A24 roundabout

As per subject really, blue GTC spotted, top-down, going off the roundabout heading westbound, as I was heading east. Greetings, if you're on here! :D

cheers,

Raz, How long is it since it was last out? presumably not all that long, and I guess the car hasn't done a huge mileage, in road car terms, since then? Is it possible that (if the strain was enough to do the ball joint a mischief) it may have bent the bolt, causing it to jam in the hole? cheers, ......

Well done Jim, it looks very smart! As a matter of interest what make & size are the wheels and what size tyres are they?

thanks,

Hi Mike, I used to use RSSPopper on my old PC, but although it works, I found it was a bit flakey. For the last 18 months or so since I got a new PC with IE7, this has an inbuilt RSS reader so I've been using that instead, and that does seem to be reliable, though reading the mails in IE is not quit...

Hi Nath, Bear in mind that the noise tests are normally done at 3/4 peak rpm (probably about 4500, depending on the redline for that engine), which sounds quite impressive when you're sat there not moving, with your foot on the gas 8)

cheers,

Hi Nath, It's looking good! I was also going to raise the question of noise, as many circuits are very limited in what they are allowed to run with regard to noise. It would be a great shame after all your hard work if you got turned away because it was too loud. To give an indication, my 6a with st...

Hi Jamie and welcome, The car looks good, I can imagine you're really keen to get out there driving it, so good luck with the MOT :D cheers, ....Roger ps. I found the pictures seemed to lag behind the message, on both RSS and on-site, but as the saying goes, "all good things come to him who waits!"

I had a suspicion that lockwiring might feature on your CV somewhere! :D
The intercooler looks good, presumably if it's quite heavy it would be a good idea to mount it fairly low, the air may be cooler at low level as well.

Raz, Might it be worth lockwiring your front suspension bolts, to make sure they don't go AWOL in future?

cheers,

I agree with Ben, I don't believe there's any need for a speedo for the MOT - See UK MOT Manual Here . (though I might leave the old one in position so it's not so obvious!). Legality on the road is a different matter, the easiest way round that would be to borrow/buy an inexpensive GPS unit - any o...

Yes, and also a spacer between the bottom wishbones and the damper mounting plate would lose you a bit more height,

cheers,

Excellent! Well done. It looks nice and snug in there, almost as though it's always been there. 8)

If you're looking for a quote it's always worth shopping around, as the company that is cheapest for one person, may be ridiculously expensive for someone else (although the people may seem to be very similar). The best place to find the company that's cheapest for everybody, all the time, is in the...

You certainly won't be left out as a biker either, as we have a number of members with bikes as well, fro...

Hi Greg, and welcome. As well as this site, and the Club itself, it may also be worth mentioning that there are a number of local groups (noggins) of Club members in your general area. There's the one I go to in Rusper (nr Horsham), there's two in the Portsmouth/Southampton area (Viv & Kev) and ther...
