551 A race oddity

The S13 rear selector rod was shortened & re-drilled to fit the S12 tail housing. This was just required for using the S13 gear selectors. The part that was needed to make the B&M shifter bolt straight on is by swapping the cast piece that fits on the end of the selector rod, that the gear lever loc...

Sabre Turbo racer: 'Light Sabre'

If you've not done the cam belt yet and don't fancy re-riming it, you could try the method of cutting the front half of the belt off, all the way round. Then slide the new belt on, once in place, slice through the remaining old piece and push the new belt on all the way. I've never done it myself, b...

But more relevant is the ability to prevent reflections onto the windscreen, which is why it’s used in motorsport.
Indeed so. Good job that man.

Fatal Accident involving a Scimitar

First, my condolences to the family of the deceased. A loss in a family is always difficult, whatever the circumstances. My initial thoughts were the same as Geraint has eloquently conveyed. I work in the automotive industry and the standards for safety of cars only ever get more stringent and diffi...

551 A race oddity

Well, we'll see... I've plagiarized the drift boys & Craig TBF (and used the manual); but tried to look at what's going on too. Maybe there's something there for you too Mikey. You drive all the time like your drifting (have you tried it). Maybe you're getting oil starvation at the front of the gear...

Did you buy the only 4-door SS1 in existence? It will surely be difficult to find replacements for those rear door frames!
