Brake pads

I’ve got Mintex 1144 in the SS1 and S2000 and really rate them. Work really well on the S2000 - with good cold manners, and in the SS1 I’ve only managed to trouble them at goodwood on the 2 lap practice - which is asking a lot of the little brakes anyway. I know most moved away from green stuff - bu...

If I'm being honest mikey I'd either set it up as a sprint car with the relevant mods or build yourself a nice road cruiser that's got quiet exhausts, softer suspension and lots of sound deadening, also a overdriven top gear will cut a lot of noise down.
Agreed! Exactly what I was thinking.

Ben's SS1 - SSF novice sprint car

That’s my car in it’s very first incarnation, we welded the bar into the Reliant hoop at the same level as the braces onto the B post - which normally carries the top seatbelt mounting on a standard car. http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a178/nickkeyser/DSC_1700.jpg I did check at the time and the c...

My ongoing ss1 restoration

Goes under the top two bellhousing to engine bolts - I had to ask Phil A what it was for, and it apparently supports the battery cable with a clip where it goes from the battery to start motor.

Goodwood 23 September 2017

Sorry to have left you all hanging... Great pictures Roger, was good to see you. Practice at Goodwood is two laps back to back - on lap one I caught up with the car in front, which was having technical issues, but he peeled off into the pits at the end of lap one giving me a clear run for lap two. U...

Goodwood 23 September 2017

Last year I ran a 103 last yr with 125hp - madgwick was 90mph in, 95 out! The long wait on straights with a top speed of 106, but mega corner speeds. So sub 100 is the target but we will see - will be interesting to see if it pulls 5th properly - it's still only got short gearing so 6,000rpm in top ...

Goodwood 23 September 2017

Entries have come through - just me for the Scimitars. Full entry for the sprint though, with entries being increased from 90 to 100 which is good news.
