Ben's SS1 - Ti Sprint Car

Did my gearbox mount in situ. Yes it was a PITA but easier than pulling the engine. But if Ben’s pulling the engine anyway to do the clutch then definitely do the mount then. I use polly engine mounts and a harder Ford gearbox mount like this https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww...

QRG sill section SS1

Thanks Mark. It’s just the driver’s side that needs sorting. So that’s all I’ll be looking for if I struggle to get it back into shape. I’ve got admit, I’m a bit nervous about welding one in, so repairing this either by force or letting in new metal is my preferred route. Would you be able to make a...

QRG sill section SS1

Haha, just wanted to know what was included in the section, so I’d know how much I’d need to cut out.

Other option is cut out the face plate and weld a new piece in.

QRG sill section SS1

Does anyone have a photo of a QRG sill section (new as delivered) that they could post here for me. Just weighing up my options as to whether to replace the bent one on my sprint car or to try and re-shape it. Also, if anyone has a driver’s side sill section for sale, please give me a shout. Must be...

G130 YCF sprint car

Lots to consider. I’m going for 13s next season, so just need to decide what size, as there’s so much choice when you look across all of the brands! 205/60 215/55 225/45 235/45 245/45 :? Avon 215/55/13 are virtually the same rolling radius as 195/45/15, so they are current favourites. Lots of time ...

Rainport vs most 1B tyres will be like night and day when you’ve got over 150BHP in a Scim on track.

G130 YCF sprint car

I reckon that most of the sets of 1Bs I’ve ever used would do about 14-16 events (single driven), 50/50 split between hills and sprints.

That’s R888 SG/ R888R GG/ Kumho V70 K22.
