Ben's SS1 - Ti Sprint Car

Did you get some 13” rims?

I’ve bought some 2nd hand Avon ZZR 8019 to try out (215/55/13). They’re 1B in that size/compound, but 1C in most other (non Caterham) sizes.

I’ve already done it thanks Phil, I was just interested to see Ben’s take on the VAG rad.

Looking great Ben. Have you got any photos of the radiator install?

Sprint & Hill Climb Regulation Proposed Changes - Blue Book Section S

I’ll keep my eye on it. I’ve just bought some tyres and was hoping I could run them in RG, if not I’ll need to plan a couple more tweaks to go MP.

Cheers Jim.

So it looks like they’re not approved yet.

GTC hood suppliers?

Yes you’ll need to fit the poppers yourself. Prym pliers work a treat and are not too expensive (John Lewis are a good source).

Any recommendations on paint for suspension parts

Controversial choice, but I use hammerite smooth and clean the road film off it annually before dabbing in any chips. Can be painted without primer and even over rust (though I don’t do that).

POR15 etc. are supposed to be way better, but are very expensive. My approach works for me :wink:

GTC hood suppliers?

I had a GTC hood from Don and a Sabre Hood from Aldridge. Both were their best quality mohair type hoods and both were very well made and a perfect fit. I fitted both myself without too much fuss. It’s easy enough to do if you take your time and ensure you have some good quality hole punch and poppe...

Recommended Tyres for 4X4

Just found this review for RS3 on a Touareg. Smaller size, so maybe the 20’s will be better again?

Recommended Tyres for 4X4

The favourite for a P38 seemed to be Scorpion Verde when I was looking but I’m guessing you don’t go plugging across fields on a regular basis even if some of the paddocks can be “interesting” :D Just double checked and it’s Pirelli Scorpion Verde that are on it at the moment, but the wet weather p...

Recommended Tyres for 4X4

I’ve got RS3 on my S2K, and they need quite a bit of pressure on that. But worked well at a lower pressure on the Audi. I had Contis on the Audi from new but found their wet grip lacking in comparison to RS3 I replaced them with. However, in dry weather they were better than the RS3. Fir a road car ...

Recommended Tyres for 4X4

Tbh, the line between car and 4x4 is pretty blurred these days. Your Touareg isn't too different in weight and power to most current big estates and the drive systems are identical so I'd be buying tyres as if you were any other car. As you like the rainsports, I'd give them a go? I’m tempted but n...
