Good work Thomas, I do not remember there being many roundabouts in Germany. Your Garage floor is cleaner than my Kitchen :o

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 or back and a day of thrashing round an airfield. Great fun simple cars these! The noise limit was 100dB and my car was 99.2dB haha.

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! - Compression Test

Post by DKWW2000 » Thu Oct 25, 2018 1:32 pm

I finally got round to using my new toy (made myself finish Attic conversion first) the Compression Tester :D
I did the FB today, very easy to use, took longer to find the Fuel Pump fuse than to test.
