Corner Weighting Today

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.

Thoroughly Tested My Cooling System Today

28 June 2018 - 05:24 PM

Went for a drive today in this blistering heat, 1st time the car has been used in really hot weather. Dual carriageway driving, temps were bang on, thrashing round the lanes, bang on then the real test really slow traffic for a few miles temps went up but never past the EWP controller set point. The combination of coolex rad, retro ford water rail and Davis Craig waterpump system make the zetec very stable under all conditions, even track day thrashing.
The addition of the thermostatic oil cooler also improved the oil temps,it kept them where they should be. The last track day they sky rocketed.

The joys of adding BHP, once you have all the power you need to control it...

Run out of mods to do, need another project now

Uprated Type 9 Gearbox Mount.

Another little upgrade, the standard g box mount wasn't up to the torque increase from the boost. Things were a bit loose under hard acceleration. Just fitted a vibratecnics mount, much better !
