Calculation of force

Maybe your decision manual/motorized is more dependent on the frequency at which it will be required?
I would think that a heavy duty garage door opener would probably do the trick, although the chain drive would almost certainly need lengthening.

G130 YCF my first sprint car

back to seat weights... This thread got me to actually doing something about the new seats I bought from RR. I got them down from the loft and the passenger seat was so much nicer than the driver's seat decided to see if it would fit in place of the driver's seat. It did, although the adjustment lev...

TD's Daily Ti thread

I bought a pair of Alcantara Ti seats from RR, of course the passenger seat was the best. It quickly became apparent that swapping the covers between the seats was one hell of a job. So I thought I'd try to see how the passenger seat would fit in the driver's position. This means that the seat recli...

I didn’t know any SS1s got dash veneer as standard?
I mean the strip of veneer-like stuff surrounding clock,dash- vents etc. Was that only SST/Sabre then?

small sports chassis weight

Trevor, regarding seats. I think the key in the weight differences you listed for the seats you weighed is the lack of runners. They are greeet big lumps of steel. Was actually thinking just the other day of losing them and hard mounting at least the passenger seat. Will weigh runners separately wh...

Alcantara T1 seat without runners just 10.1 kg. That explains why Ti is so much faster!

Feeling guilty of above facetious answer, nipped up to loft with bathroom scales: seat with runners 14.8 kg
Update, this is standard striped seat, feels more solid that alcvantara Ti seat.

TD's Daily Ti thread

Okay, next step after new wishbone: wheel alignment. I went to the local specialist today and he checked it out. Left side was 1° out on camber which was corrected by reversing the upper ball joint mountings, now as far out-board as possible (the right side is as far in-board as possible). So it wou...

Look what came in the post today

Well not by post but still nice! My old compressor (14 yrs) was playing up so bought a bigger and quieter model that just fits in the allocated space, Quieter, yes much, but one can still hear it throughout the whole house! Hoping Swmbo'll get used to it. Although labelled Roda it's a Fiac. New Comp...

What make were they? Superflex say they have built in the microscopic release of lubricating polymers....etc
Bit like tyres.....there are some good ones and others to be avoided?
Superflex, but possibly that is a development after these were purchased.

Polybush longevity

Derek, my post was querying the longevity of poly bushes/lubricant in actual real-life use, not on just fitting. I fitted the poly bushes in accordance with the instructions using the lubricant supplied. Of course at that time they operated smoothly, and still do, although I have concerns as to lubr...

Polybush longevity

The last ones I have done I inserted a sleeve of a ptfe material between the bush and stainless tube. i.e. I'm not asking the poly to act as a wearing surface. I also polished the tube before fitting. Sadly the vehicle (a Fox) is not yet on the road but the operation of the wishbones is very smooth...
