In Topic: Lincolnshire Meet For February

Today, 05:33 PM

Back from the meet.   Very small, only about 30 cars there, but enough petrol heads who knew about Robin Hood to keep us happy.  And right next door to the diner so coffee and breakfasts on tap.

 

Major problem is that the cars all have to park on a field by the side of the diner which doesn't have a dropped kerb.  So the organisers provided some wooden ramps:

Nice offer but no use at all to our cars.  Andy tried it first and it was obvious we couldn't make it.  So the organiser allowed us to park in the ordinary car park just across the road from the field and by the entrance to the diner.   Fine for us, but would be a problem if there were more than about 3 cars.

Good to take the cars out, both of us wrapped up very well.   I enjoyed it.

You may not be able to tell, it depends on how much of the floor the previous owner removed, but one difference between the 2B and the Superspec is that we had a lowered floor (about 2") to take the fully adjustable Recaro seats.

In Topic: Attention: All Superspec Owners

20 February 2018 - 08:41 AM

You are out of luck I'm afraid.   As far as I know there only 12 Rover-engined Superspec owners who are currently on the forum, of which 9 are running.   None of them are in Scotland.   The nearest to you are 'Redspec' in County Durham, 'e666' in North Yorkshire and 'wanderer' in Fleetwood.

 

Obviously I am more than happy to take measurements on my own car and copious photos of whatever you need.   And if you PM me your address I can send you a copy of the Build DVDs (although they are more for entertainment value that help on the engineering).

 

And there is a 'huge' amount of information on this forum about the car.  Most of it between 2003-2007 when the cars were first being built.   All you need to do is search, but be selective.  If you do a search for "Superspec" then you will get nothing before 2008 as you hit the limit..   But search for "Superspec Gearbox" then you get 11 results going back to 2005 (Note the double quotes, they are essential).

 

Good luck, we will offer any help we can.
