  1. We had a great run up to the Jim Clark museum, if you ever get the chance to visit to understand what an amazing all round talent Jim had, and the roads in the area are great. unfortuatally none of our Local members showed any interest in the event but I will continue to invite them to join in to local events

  3. On Thursday 11th of August I am organising a run up to the Jim Clark Museum in Duns on the Scottish Borders. The run will be about 120 miles and we will be having a "gentle" run. We are leaving the Three Horse Shoes NE244HF entrance at 10-30am and we are taking a picnic lunch. If you plan to join us please let me know, Alan
  4. My 3a has Protech shocks, tie bars with 180 front and 150 rears I have tried all sorts of spring combinations and found this to suit my style of driving. Camber is set to zero on the front and -1 on the rear. As I say this will not suit everyone but I thought I would post it up to show that there is no firm rules on car set up.

  20. Just returned from my first run of 22 a run over the Scottish border to Jedbugh and back a run of just over 130 miles, Strong winds and torrential rain over the Border hills but it was so nice to have all the roads to myself and a great morning out.
  21. As the title says we are not holding a meeting this month originally because the venue would have been too busy because of Christmas, but the increase in COVID has overtaken that. So stay safe everyone and try to have a good Xmas, and watch this space to see what is happening with the meetings in the New Year, hopefully things will improve.

M27 stem top, and 25mmx1/2 bottom eye, when fitted the distance between the mounting is 13.5 inch Springs I bought elsewhere and are1.9 ID 7 inch long and150lb I use the original lower shocker mounting with no problems but the mounting on the body needs to be strong and the load well spread.
