Ben's SS1 - Ti Sprint Car

I was going to say the CAS only fits one way due to the "D" key ways. I think the issue Steve Oakes had was due to the D on the CAS breaking off??? You rotate the CAS gear until itis aligned to the cam, with the mounting screws to the cam cover aligned, it then just slots on. The adjustment slots ar...

You seem to have fitted an SU carb to your exhaust. Interesting!

Ben's SS1 - Ti Sprint Car

On brakes, my Compbrake set up was straight forward. 2-piece brake disc with aluminium hat, which was custom made for the SS1 after I measured it all up. So they will be able to CNC them from file now. I haven't checked if the list them or not, but if you phone them, they would have them. Off the sh...

Another point with a Nissan ECU modified to allow it to be mapped, if you want the mapping software, that's an additional cost again. With an after market ECU, you will get the software as part of the price. I just got a cut down free version for system checking, prior to taking it to be mapped.

Just to clarify turbo application with the Horsham stage chips / maps, they do detail the spec. of the engine modifications required:

Ben's SS1 - Ti Sprint Car

I chose to run the original Nissan ECU in my car, as one of the race series I built the car for required ECU’s no newer than 1993. That requirement has since changed, so newer ECU’s are allowed, if the reg.s had changed before I’d already got the modified Nissan ECU in place, I’d have gone with an E...

Ah, you think you do, but it depends on ambient temperature too...

Some resins have it on the label how much catalyst to use for different ambient temperatures.

551 A race oddity

The S13 rear selector rod was shortened & re-drilled to fit the S12 tail housing. This was just required for using the S13 gear selectors. The part that was needed to make the B&M shifter bolt straight on is by swapping the cast piece that fits on the end of the selector rod, that the gear lever loc...

Sabre Turbo racer: 'Light Sabre'

If you've not done the cam belt yet and don't fancy re-riming it, you could try the method of cutting the front half of the belt off, all the way round. Then slide the new belt on, once in place, slice through the remaining old piece and push the new belt on all the way. I've never done it myself, b...

If you're changing core plugs, I got mine from here, reasonable price & quick delivery. The look ok, only time tells though.

But more relevant is the ability to prevent reflections onto the windscreen, which is why it’s used in motorsport.
Indeed so. Good job that man.

Fatal Accident involving a Scimitar

First, my condolences to the family of the deceased. A loss in a family is always difficult, whatever the circumstances. My initial thoughts were the same as Geraint has eloquently conveyed. I work in the automotive industry and the standards for safety of cars only ever get more stringent and diffi...
