Posted by Matt brown on 08 October 2018 - 08:10 PM

Sorry for not replying sooner woke up Sunday and ended up in hospital. (Fun times)

Let's start the sweepstake then, what is it...
- Slippy diff?
- Disc brake conversion?
- New brake shoes?
- New driveshafts?
- Diff ratio change?
- New springs?
- New dampers?
- Replacing bushes
- Some geometry fiddle?
- Sparkle-effect handbrake cable?

Multiple of the things above.

* New diff (viscous LSD)
* New diff ratio going to 3.38
* Disc break conversion
* New drive shafts going from push in to bolt on
* New handbrake cable to go with the new calipers

That's what it looked like when I took the old bearings out, no work done to it. My bearings weren't smeared on it.

If your going the quick risky root get the crap off the crank and see what it looks like. You can try polishing the crank if it's bad. Just make sure there's no deep scratches or high surfaces which will damage the new bearing

Ye found the problem turns out the bolts to the pickup had come loose. Managed to get it fixed and hopefully no major damage done the next couple of outings will show anything up though

Not sure about oil pressure, my gauge isn't calibrated and is always off the scale.
Smelt the cap, smells of petrol which sounds dodgy...

I remember you saying it's not been turned and was running really rich. If your oil smells like petrol it's because the extra fuel going in is getting mixed with the oil which is a big problem as it will nacker your bearings as it isn't a lubricant, one possible reason why my big end bearings got destroyed as mine oil was pertoly

#384106 Blyton Park (Track Day) 8/7/18

Posted by Matt brown on 01 May 2018 - 08:05 PM

While we work on getting a track day organised by the club i thought we could get at least one pre-booked track day in.


I think i have found a good option for everyone.


TRACK: Blyton park (Eastern circuit)

DATE: 8/7/18  (SUNDAY)


PRICE: £139


For people that have been to Blyton before, this is not the standard track layout and looks to be more suited to 7 type cars with more turns.



The trackday can be booked through 'Javelin trackdays' through this link



The format for the day is as follows

Layout : Eastern Circuit (1.4 miles) Format : Open Pit Lane Noise : 95dba Drive By Overtaking : Right Hand Side on Straights Only

If you are interested in this event please let me know as if there is enough of us i may be able to get us a discount for the club, or you can just book yourself on with the link above and post on here so we know who is going.


Hope this is a good start for people towards new events for the club!!

Thanks rich. I want to do this as member and non member to try and get more people into the club as well as the more people the cheaper it would be for everyone and higher chance of making a profit for the club

Doing it as £30 cheeper for members I have a plan to get people to join the club to save themselves money in turn helping fund the club for further events

We only want to pay £20 for it though, club and non-members can fund the rest. Thanks! :D

 haha well that depends on numbers, I'm sending messages out now on my lunch break so hopefully get a idea on price soon.


Lol, Sorry Matt, could`nt resist. Welcome to the world of sorting stuff out and asking for suggestions....
But seriously, yes good idea. I only have experience of Curborough, it`s very small and very safe and lots of fun. I know some of the Brummies have contacts.
Maybe ask Shyboy or Richy when you see them next.

After I did the photo shoot last year I though id have a go at s bigger event. after all the negative stuff going on at the min we need some positive vibes going on

#383628 The Uk Kit Car Club Track Day.

Posted by Matt brown on 26 April 2018 - 09:09 AM

Ok from what has been said over the past few days and things I have been thinking about since I joined the club on making it better I have a suggestion that I would like input on.

I would like to organise a track day for the club which has a discounted price for members and also include non members at a higher price to fill the remaining spaces.

What I would like to know is, what track would people like to see? So I can contact them to try and organise a deal for the club

My idea is in theory anyway is to get a price for say a 30 car track day and have it so the club members get first dibs at a £30 discount to the non members. This would encourage non members to join the club which would save them £10 on there day and make more money and gain members for the club. Which will also inturn gain the club more stage presence due to people talking about the day on social media by sharing there experience and photos.

How does everyone feel about this?
