Ty-Croes 4/5 May 2019

I've checked and triple checked and I'm assured that a double gararge for 4 cars has my name on it. With that in mind does anyone have a spare kettle they can bring for tea/ coffee making :?: I have a supply of bottled water and we can all bring our own mugs and supplies etc :) If you've seen the fo...

Swoakes SS1 DET Sprint Car Wipers

Cheers Nick

I've sat inside the car and pushed on the frames from the inside and they are solid; no movement outwards at all :)

Is that the spare I sold you? Tested on snotty okay but send it back or bring it to a sprint for a refund if so.
Yes plugged it in and nothing Jim. Only thought since do this is I didn't earth the unit out by fixing it to the car. Not sure if it needs to be earthed?

Swoakes SS1 DET Sprint Car Wipers

With Ty Croes next weekend where you can have 4 seasons in one day I was keen to get the wipers working correctly despite what appears to be a dry forecast. I collected a replacement delay unit at the test day and it worked...at the test day the wipers were working on both speeds even with the repla...

Swoakes SS1 DET Sprint Car Window frames

Window frames completed :) Josh welded the verticals for me this morning. I've sprayed over the welds for now but we may get them power coated at a later stage :? They have a very good seal to the door seals (maybe too good) requiring the usual SS1 "lift" to fully close the door. I'm pretty confiden...

Not been for a while so would welcome some advice. I plan to arrive Fri pm. Presumably I can get in and unload from my trailer? I gather you can sign on Fri eve. Ideally I would leave the trailer there until at least Monday. I think the site will be open from mid afternoon Nick. Chance to unload an...

Gurston Down 20/21 April 2019

I guess the question is how much faster did you need to go to take the 25 :?: and is that achievable :?: One for Corky as I reckon he will have a CM version of the spreadsheet :roll: :lol: edit I'll answer my own question; Nick would have needed a 36.66 both days to take the 25 based on CM results i...

Swoakes SS1 DET Sprint Car Window frames

Passenger side frame formed and in place. Polycarbonate cut and fitted.

Both sides now just need the vertical angled bracing sections welding to the frame and and I can then final fix the polycarbonate to the frames.
