Re: What I've done to my car this week!

Oh and toyo T1R tyres are dreadful in the wet but were not bad at all in the dry later in the day.

Re: What I've done to my car this week!

I dusted the old black car off again and did another trackday on Friday last week. This time it was at Abingdon airfield, nothing has really been done to the car since the trackday last year other than take it to an MOT and take it to retro rides. It performed well and had no problems driving there ...

Looks like the next round is Oulton Park 20th, I'd like to go and watch if I'm not busy.

This car was racing at Donington last weekend. I can't recall seeing it before? Anyone know anything about it?
That's Tony Ellis' special saloons and modsports car. I really want to get to a meeting to see it in action! I believe the engine is by WGT.

Re: 12a engine bracket

Maybe something to do with the way the engine is mounted in RHD cars? the engine is shoved over to the passenger side not in the middle like a LHD.

Re: White Elford Turbo repatriated to the UK

You don't need a type approval for registering a vehicle. Many imports that were not originally sold in the UK market are registered on UK roads and weren't ever type approved.

Re: Rx7fb rough idle

your fuel strainers in the carb inlet might be blocked and the float level too low.
