    Really retro show Sunday 23rd

    Hi Andi, I went to this event with SKCC a lot of good cars, the NWKCOG was also there. Needs a few more auto jumble stores but still good. Maybe next year.

    1/4 mile Santa Pod

    All, After a great weekend at Sant Pod it got me thinking what are the best mods we can do with our cars to improve straight line acceleration? Obviously we need grip, power and quick reactions, how can this be achieved and more importantly how much? No I am not adding a jet engine to the roll cage!

    Suspension bushes

    Hi technical experts, I need new suspension bushes for Ford based Zero, I have used GBS ones but they have appear to failed after 1200 miles. Does anyone know of another supplier who sells them? Maybe better material.

    Suspension bushes

    I agree, once upon a time in the army we had grease nipples on almost everything including Sargent Majors backside.

    Tiger Cars 30th anniversary open day

    I thought about this but it’s over a 3 hour drive, I wonder if we could combine with another event or arrange a overnight stay.

    Tempted, very tempted if I can get away from work early I will gladly watch. Any mods before your your next run? Who’s driving the kit you or turbobec?

    shortend sump

    In my view it’s irrelevant on how much the sump is shortened the capacity should not change and you should fit wings, troughs and/or oil capacity elsewhere. It’s not just about lube the oil also helps to cool.

    Steve is it done yet

    Can the right honourable gentleman come clean on his statement and wrong doings in the garage?

    Seat Runners

    Well done, how many more jobs on the list? You have just missed a great club weekend at Santa Pod. Let us know, we are really good at helping newbies and supporting your build. When I was new and my gearbox failed the week before Stoneleigh the UK largest kit car show two strangers and club members (Gaz and Richy) sourced a gearbox and came around and fitted a new gearbox. Well worth the membership.

    Suspension bushes

    Will do, thank you.

    Suspension bushes

    Yes there’s some rust/pitting on the crush tubes which has probably speeded up the wear.

    Suspension bushes

    They have elongated so the sleeve/tube is loose. I think the front went because I am extreme geometry set up, knackered a new tyre in less than 400 miles and rear I am guessing it was caused by my diff locking up. It was so tight when it failed I could not turn by hand. Or I just had a poor bunch, who knows!

    Project Rhocaravan

    Great job Richy, I could not believe the build quality when sat in it at kitfest. I liked the built in dish washer (thanks Jackie). Hope Jackie is feeling better.

    I have heard a lot of positive comments on Steve Walford, think I will use him after fitting the ME100 with built in vvt controller.

    Lucky buyer, this was a lovely car. Dan are you going to get another kit car?

    Noise cameras

    Keep them away from tunnels, I cannot deny it I love to drop it a gear in every tunnel and let it roar...

    13" wheels on the GBS Zero??

    I have never seen 13” on a Zero, before must be a reason.

    Staffordshire Area Meet Monday 3rd June 2019

    Good to see some new faces, 5 cars in total. I think we may have to pick another night for parking and not to clash with classic car retired guys. Just got a little wet for the last 4 miles, must fit electric garage opener - any suggestion?

    Type 9 gearbox

    Sounds like the pro kit, is the gear stick straight with no bend and shiny metal rather than black?
