G130 YCF sprint car

I’ve dish washed car parts, washed stuff in the bath and oven baked engine blocks. Spray painted parts in the conservatory, but I don’t think I’ve ever used a engine stand on laminate floor...!! :D

Do the OEM pipes have a pressure limiting valve? My Beamer had one and the clutch was so lazy with it fitted that I bypassed it.

Your dad actually pointed something out.

So these are the measurements

ok, so another attempt. New concentric slave, interestingly came with a note with " DO NOT COMPRESS". which is of course, the exact opposite to what i did before.

Thanks efi_sprintgte a considered solution, thanks. As Laters has found closer examination has revealed a number of attempts to secure the rubber with wood screws etc. Can the earlier chrome ones be fitted to a 6A? 7DBF8AAC-E472-4EB7-B66A-20FCCCC0F78A.jpeg 121D4BF0-1454-4495-BC5D-7BF0F1B85638.jpeg ...

Just a thought, have you considered removing the rubber completely and preping/painting the fibreglass bumpers that are there?

Does anyone know how durable these gearboxes and diffs are as I am building something that I would like to be as reliable as I can get it? Thanks in advance. Diffs are very strong. The manual OD gearbox has been used for sprinting by a few people with 230+bhp and they’ve been ok, although the gearc...

So more acetone and ATF for the last 2 days. Then a few gentlish pulls and I saw the mark definitely ...
