I'm not the biggest fan of MK1's which is why I'm surprised. I quite like it! :shock: Are those all wheels in the background? Hahahah. Any 14" Longchamps? :D :D

Yes, and 15" Longchamps. There is a pair XR4s Longchamp, and a pair Jilba Racing.

Brake boilers... they don't work well on the front

I was wondering about ventilation for brakes - easy to clean though

Quite common to run mk1s on the back and something a bit better for brake cooling on the front.

Braking is overrated anyway.

Getting ready for MOT next week, and Player's Classic @ Goodwood on the 17th. Moved oil cooler to a horizontal position.

Question - Does anyone know the operating parameters for oil temperatures?

Rx7 oil cooler thermostats open at 65'C / 150F and should be fully open by 82'C / 180F. 65-85C is therefore a normal operating zone when warm.

Anything over 95'C / 205F is danger zone according to Racing Beat. I have read tgat for the FD, 250F at the sump was the maximum tolerable limit when measured at the sump but was later revised down to 210F :shock:

Last post June 2017, so I am guessing some posts lost or I have been really slack - both are possibilities.

Any ways here is something to post up as a way of getting back into the new look forum.

Anyone looking for an "off the shelf" car cover then look no further. This is a great fit and even fits my door mirrors.
