    1/4 mile Santa Pod

    Quick shifter (flappy paddle or knock up and down) to help with gear changes, copious amounts of turbo or supercharging and nitrous

    Superspec springs upgrade

    Hi does anyone know what the spring rating that came on the zimmeride shocks for the superspec and would upgrading the sprig make it much stiffer as it is very bouncy at the moment due to soft springs

    First Wiper Speed Not Working

    what i found with mine is that the mulit plug to the lucas motor is very loose. It might be worth checking there first. if not have a look at your intermittent relay ( if you have one, i personally don't) as it can be very easy to catch and pull those plugs loose

    Another Super Spec cooling question

    I have a non turbo variant and I have two thermostat plugs. One (the top) is for the ECU to sense the coolant temp and the second (bottom) is as you say for the dash. Personally I would put a bleed valve in the highest pipe so potentially the one that goes at the top of thermostat to the radiator as most installations have the water bottle feed point below this

    Another Super Spec cooling question

    If the louvres on the bonnet don't work try putting some vents or scoops in the side of the body to get cool air in and out

    Superspec clutch cable

    Well I have replaced the new cable (what a farce that is). On the plus side I made a new bracket and put some PTFE spray in and what a difference it makes. The clutch is so much lighter as I have put the mounting point closer to the driver exposing more cable in the pedal box and making it straighter. I could only do that as the top of the clutch pedal is slightly bent allowing the cable to pass straight by it.

    Another Super Spec cooling question

    I would check for air blockages but are you using the standard radiator or an aftermarket one. If it's aftermarket are you using a separate intercooler for the turbo and a radiator for the engine ensuring both are getting good airflow

    Superspec clutch cable

    Oh well. At least I'll have them today to be able to drive round in it. I'm guessing going hydraulic would be alot of work. Has anyone done it yet on a 2b or other

    Superspec clutch cable

    I have just ordered 2 from eurocarparts as they are still readily available through them and with their discount code they come to about 25 quid each to get me back on the road. Looks like I might have to do some minor modifications to the clutch pedal alignment before I install one again

    Superspec clutch cable

    Oh and another thing. How can I make the clutch any lighter. As my dad who has had a knee operation gets a sore knee after driving it for a while due to the force required of the clutch pedal

    Superspec clutch cable

    Hi guys. Well after looking forward to playing out in the Lancastrian hills it was abruptly brought to a very quick sudden end with a loud bang. Said bang was the clutch cable. I have got new ones ordered already but was wondering what people have done to make the bracket to avoid it happening. Pictures would be helpful. Also what would be required to make it hydraulic on the mt75 gearbox out of curiosity?

    Replacing exhaust

    So going for the 48mm or 60mm inlet won't have any negative effect on the engine?

    Replacing exhaust

    Hi guys. I have a question about fitting the exhaust. the pipework from the collector has an outer diameter of 2 inches and the exhausts i'm looking at getting have an outer diameter of either 2 inch or 2.5 inch. The differences between the exhausts are a bigger can size. My question is does it matter that the exhaust inlet gets bigger or will this cause issues

    Fuel Gauge

    Hi all. I have a Ford Fiesta fuel tank with its original fuel sender paired up to a ETB gauge. When the fuel gets to about halfway and below the fuel reading will read half and wont go any lower. I got the correct resistance values 20 -120 ohms to match the fuel sender. I have a spiyda device but never really got it to sync up. Does anyone have any advice for this. TIA

    All plumbed in now. Tried running without a blank on the grille and stayed below 80 ran with a blank on the grille and did not once budge from optimum (we have a very large rad). Thanks @AndyW the work you put in to fix this issue. Now to sort the rest of the problems out
