  1. it WAS hard, my car had all the right parts in it, but it was rough around the edges. it needed another 5 grand thrown at it to bring it up to where i wanted it. i could have stripped it to pieces and sold the bits for more than 15 thou but i didnt want to destroy a great car. its all over now, but i may be back with an SC race car, the best fun i ever had with my car was on the track!
  2. 15 thousand. the car is sold, getting picked up next weekend:disappoin
  3. Hey guys, ust thought i'd let you know, looks like the car is going this weekend.
  4. Your right Geoff i did decide will i was pissed! but it still made sense in the morning, no doubt in my mind ill regret it watching it drive away and if i had the money i would hold onto it but... its time to go.... until such time as i can pick up an SC club car.

  6. im back after a long hiatus from the site. moving countries will do that. i maneged 7 including me the driver, doors and hatch closed and driving. car felt a little sluggish.
  7. Here are the charges the 7 michie teams are on trial for: The FIA informed each team individually that they had committed the following transgressions: * “Failed to ensure that you had a supply of suitable tyres for the race." * "Wrongfully refused to allow your cars to start the race." * "Wrongfully refused to allow your cars to race subject to a speed restriction at one corner, which was safe for such tyres as you had available." * "Combined with other teams to make a demonstration damaging to the image of Formula 1 by pulling into the pits immediately before the start of the race." * "Failed to notify the stewards of your intention not to race.” check out charge 3. does this mean that the teams refused to race even if there was a chicane??? this would point out it was not the FIA to blame here but the teams themselves....
  8. sounds like its running rich. plugs black after city driving. try winding some fuel out of the carbs. it would be ok highway crusing becouse the underbonnet temps are down and your air is denser, giving i leaner mixture.
  9. www.fibresports.com.au cheapest around as they have the moulds.
  10. how much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?
  11. Anybody know what 'P30" means on a crankshaft?? what are the L24, L28, LD28 cranks desgnated with? Brett
  12. Yep, and you can bet most racers (unless they like being at the back of the pack) use close tolerance engines with high tension rings that can take advantage of mobile 1. Its only funny if your ignorant of your engines limits and capabilities. No flame intended, but thats just how it is.
  13. i think we should be careful when throwing around oil names for suggestions, different oils come in various visocities, types, castor/ synthetic etc and each engine has its specific uses and corresponding needs. so a 40wt oil used in a fleet vehicle is not necessarily the oil of choice for your weekend Z with 150k racked up. FWIW i have ran Mobil 1 in my engine which was the wrong choice. its way way to thin, couldnt hold its viscosity when the temps rose on the racetrack and oil pressure dropped, pluss it leaked past the valve guides and rings and dissapeared out the exhaust. changed to a synthetic castrol racing oil with (from memory) a 20w60 rating which held its viscosity better, it was alot thicker to begin with, and i didnt lose oil. of course this may be a little to thick for a fresh built engine with new style piston rings.... its horses for courses. Check the manufcaturer recommendations for your driving conditions, they know best. but generally the tolorances on our 30 plus year old engines are not in the ballpark to be using thin synthetic oils. the kind of oil you see labeled as "for high performance, turbo engines"
  14. yeah casue its reducing your interior space, 3 quarter vision and fu%*ing your aerodynamics.
