Not be on here in ages!!!

WOW - fantastic to see my old car has gone to such a brilliant home.

Love the wheels, and definitely going about everything the right way. The original plan was to go with corner force blade arbs (fantastic bit of kit) and the Nitrons were indeed valved and spung accordingly - I will be fascinated how you get on with these, particularly as the spring rating are intentionally quite soft due to the way they work in conjunction with the ARB's.

Anyway, top work!

Thanks Nik
Im on track with it tomorrow so will be good to see how it works before and after the roll bars which should hopefully be here next week.

Did my first tacky yesterday in this car :)
Was good fun but the car definitely needs the roll bars as the springs are a bit soft causing roll in the corners.

Hi Niel, the car looks great! I'll be interested to hear how you get on with the arb's.

looks pretty mega

I have the pilbeam arb, and it did more than I thought it was going to, and in fact lets me get away with softer shocks n springs

I checked temps out on track was doing 15 min sessions

coolant 86'c
Oil max of 105 'c
gearbox oil 80'c

I was worried the single oil cooler in the back wouldn't cope but at 105 max i think it will be ok.

That car looks the nuts.
I have the Pilbeam, from Dave. They actually seem to have welded this one correctly
