5 /5a chassis

I’ve Known a few 5a shells with 5 chassis and wasn’t aware of any major dramas.

I’m aware you intend to do the reverse. Can’t see it being an issue, I would do what practically suits you best.

ID stays with the chassis of course...

Abingdon 9 June 2018

Really enjoyed this event, for those unaware it’s two separate tracks. Track A and track B. There are two paddocks too. Paddock A runs track A in the morning then track B after lunch and Paddock B runs track B in the morning. So 2 practice and 2 times runs on each track. 8 runs in total plus two con...

Mikey Bikeys LPG, Fully Disked up, Se5a

Last year the flywheel was lightened. But nothing was subsequently balanced. The current engine, whilst strong and reliable, feels coarse, probably even more so since the flywheel has been lightened. The bgh gearbox has had little use, albeit I’m a hamfisted idjut, but had replacement bearings thro...

I understood “per car” to mean one “set” would do the whole car?

Swoakes SS1 DET Sprint Car

Pump running backwards?

Return line and input line mixed up?

Oil pressure fitting

Our first sprint car had a oil pressure gauge and a switch. The switch was hooked up to a large light on the dashboard, it was the only reason we discovered poor sump baffeling (because the light came on mid corner). We never noticed it on the gauge, you simply don’t have time to look at them. The s...

I mean, I know you drive it like ya stole it..!!

But the reality is the cars not much more then a tonne, on normal road tyres and with 150bhp(?) there has to be a root cause for all these failures?

Joe's 1972 GTE - Post Paint Refitting - Exhaust Midboxes...

Pepe, the car is EFI.

Midrange light throttle torque will be better with a free breathing exhaust so VE goes up and fuel consumption gets better. Use the extra power and obviously the fuel economy gets worse 8) :lol:

Those mid boxes with rear boxes will give very acceptable noise levels.
