    GBS Silencer

    Depending on how the mot tester interprets the rules, a Q plate is visible smoke only for emissions at mot.

    Yes it went though the IVA with a pinto, that didn't require a emissions test due to year of manufacture. It was given a Q plate, the engine change was notified to DVLA, a updated V5 issued. At this year's MOT, I fitted the Cat in readyness for the emmisions, but was told it didn't need one. I didn't argue the point!

    urgent help with electrics wanted

    I know what you mean - I did electrical and electronic engineering at uni years ago and electrics still confuse me. I fitted a new USB socket recently and ever since then, my voltmeter gauge has been under-reading. Then, today, I plugged my mobile phone in to the USB and the voltmeter suddenly reads correctly!

    I've got the GBS can and, if anything, I think it's too quiet However, I'm more interested in 'my MOT station does not require emissions checked' - please elaborate....
  6. The rubber on the pulley on my engine has cracked badly and the casting cracked when I tried to remove it. Any body have one lying around?

    I have a similar problem that i am too lazy to fix. if i put my hazards on then turn off the ignition engine still runs , i think you have managed to wire the non ignition side of the electrics to the ignition on side of the electrics. in my case its 2 wires on the hazard switch. I would check your feed for your fan and also where you have earthed your fan . Being a cobbler you are the worst shod guy in the street ....... I'm an electronics engineer. Hey ho Best wishes Derek

    Yes it's OK in cruise mode, but when the right foot goes down it draws the wrong type of attention.

    Thanks Derek, see you there.

    Stilton Run 2019

    We met up HERE, (postcode LE15 9BF) last couple of years and it seemed to work well. It's a public road and it's on our route out of Uppingham. If we meet up there ready to depart at 11:00 am sharp then we should not be there more than 15 mins and should not upset the locals too much. We have tried to meet up and go into the centre together but we have been split up and not parked together anyway. Following the same route as last year, ie both loops, we will have enough time to stop off at the farm shop for essential supplies leaving at 12:45. Then its the the run down to Stilton for lunch at.......2:00pm. This is the same time as last year so we need to be away from the farm shop on time. Weather forecast is looking OK at the moment, should be a good first run out.

    Yeah they are, I got fed up of people saying " nice caterham" or " is that a caterham" or "Ive got a caterham just like that"

    I'm using Power Flow for my exhaust systems they were very reasonably priced and you can find fitters all over. They will design the units to suit you with different noise and sound characteristics plus they are stainless with a guarantee for life. It's early days for my system as I only had it fitted and IVA tested late last year but it cleared the sound measurement with ease although my power unit is a turbo which cuts down the noise produced considerably and it is pre-cat. I've already had to test guarantee as welding leaked slightly and this was rectified without trouble.

    GBS Silencer

    Hi Guys, just wondering if anyone is running with the GBS large silencer. I'm getting headaches when driving the 2B because of the noise, even though I run a sport 200 cell cat in front of the original silencer. At around £300, non cat version they seem expensive, but if keeps the DB's at a lower level then perhaps it will be worth the expense. I'm running a 2.0 Duratec on throttle bodies, and my MOT station does not require emissions checked, so no need of a cat.

    That's a great picture and are those info sheets about the car on the screen? Like the ones I'm hoping people will be using at Stoneleigh.
