Corky's Scimitars & S2K

Ironically a GTE with a Honda engine will weigh less than an s2000. Probably with less oversteer :oops:

Corky's Scimitars & S2K

Corky, I found a harness a great help. Interestingly Super/Turbo cars work well in CM, more about spread than peak power. The supercharged MX5's are very effective .as is the 4 cyl Boxster. Out of interest my MR2 is 178 bhp/137 ft/lbs. The Turbo is 200/200, so only 12% more power but 46% more torque...

Corky's Scimitars & S2K

Corky, Interesting ! You are going through what I did in the MR2, although the Honda is 50 bhp up. Weight similar. Do you have a full harness? I notice the much better brakes ands still brake a bit early I have added a 5th gear stop. You probably can't do this I get frustrated by the poor torque aft...

Race Chrono

It does depend on the quality of your GPS. Obviously comparisons between runs and events are valid. Helps me decide when to stay in 3rd, go to 4th etc. I presume you get speeds at points on the track overview, and graphs of speed against time?

Hill climb prep

Hi,

My old article on this page is largely relevant if a bit dated. I would start with a track/test day, the club one at curbs is good.

Blyton is a pretty good venue with plenty of run off and different layouts.

Harewood 2 June 2019

A modern with 6 plus gears, instant changes and vvt will have an advantage over an older car without this. Modern diffs and electronics also widen the gap.Chassis mods brakes and tyres may get you close on grip with a good set up. With my old coupe, which has a decent setup I would reckon to be at l...

Brake pads - the old chestnut

I,m with oaksey. Had brake fade problems on my ss1, fitted 1144 and was well pleased with them. On GW discs. Yellow stuff work well on my mr2, but bigger brakes to start with.
