V8 in that chassis without substantial strengthening is not going to end well. 5.5k is steep. Just my opinions others may well disagree.

#386504 Corner Weighting Today

Posted by DanE on 02 July 2018 - 08:33 PM

My car has always cornered slightly unpredictable when doing quick rights, lefts were fine. especially at the track, so i decided to have a go at corner weighting today. Net result is I now have the car with 50% cross weight 49%-51% side weight and 50.3 front weight 49.7% rear the cross weights were way off at the start. All this was done with my weight added to driver's seat and 1/2 a tank of fuel (4 gal). tomorrow i.m going to recheck the camber and toe. Looking forward to blyton Sunday to see what effects it had.

#385786 Mot Today

Posted by DanE on 08 June 2018 - 12:35 PM

My previous mot have been similar, this guy is fairly young and keen, he was mainly being carefully due to mot stations being checked up on at the minute to see they are adhering to all the new rules... To be honest I don't mind at least I know my car 100%

#385778 Personal Details Leak - Members Information

Posted by DanE on 08 June 2018 - 11:18 AM

If my details were on that leak i.m personally not bothered ! As for Allan offering to resign that is also in my opinion not appropriate, this club is in enough of a decline without losing active area secs!
Learn from it and move on...

I think 5 lashings and 10 hail Mary's suitable punishment...

#385773 Mot Today

Posted by DanE on 08 June 2018 - 10:26 AM

I've been dreading this mot more than any before, with changes to the rules etc. 1st big worry was emissions, I run 450cc injectors and no idle control valve meaning it idles at 1000rpm and hunts a little bit with the afr 11.5 and 13.5 (rich) previous years mot stations visually tested it only Q plate, now it has to be tested to pass 4.5% to my surprise it did 3.5 %.. next worry was brakes, I have just fitted a new brake system 4pot willwood midilites fronts with 285 discs willwood fast rd pads new pipes m/c etc also converted the rear from drum to disc etc the brakes had done 0 miles as car hasn't been moted for months so not bedded in or tested thankfully it past no issue at all. Only potential fail points were no rear reflectors headlight aim way to high (new LEDs) and main beam indicator. Thankfully he had these bits in stock and let me adjust the aim. This mot was the full no holds barred test and the car got through with ease, well happy now...

#385399 Another. Zeemeride Super Spec Suspension Question

Posted by DanE on 25 May 2018 - 04:49 AM

To complicate this has further i,m not a fan of Gaz the damping settings aren't right for light cars, too hard, I had them on my 2b they started leaking after 3k and corroded badly in no time at all. I use protech coilovers which are set accordingly and have been faultless for 4yrs. Similar price to Gaz

#384999 Tow Bar On Zero

Posted by DanE on 15 May 2018 - 02:29 PM

Something to think about before you go ahead, copied from bosal website

Tow bar design

Tow bars are reviewed on an individual basis, and only those that meet the European Courts safety and quality standards are considered type-approved. As of 1998 in the UK, only Whole European Type-Approved Vehicles can be fitted with European Type Approved towbars. To ensure that the tow bar you are purchasing is safe and compliant, always look for the type approval plate.

Manufacturers design towbars using data such as;

The car manufacturer's specified fixing points

Gross Trailer Weight

Gross Vehicle Weight

As this data varies depending on the make, model and year of the car, it is important that you invest in a (type-approved) vehicle-specific tow bar.

I've done it but won't any longer, if it's not type approved it's not legal in my understanding of it. Have an accident whilst towing I think it would be a world of legal pain.

Just my interpretation of it...

I've been thinking of buying one of these as a tuning aid but are they any good?

my innovate one is similar and the exact reason I bought it was to tune my 45 Weber's when they were fitted,
