So in between going to work and everything else I’ve somehow managed to recondition, paint and strengthen a wishbone, strip a driveshaft of its tripod joint and replace it with a Sierra CV joint, paint the brake back plate and get it ready for re-assembly. I should get a couple of the hours in the morning to do this and drop it back on it’s wheels. If they all point in the same direction, I should be able to make Curbs with the car :D . If not I’ll be competing in the Honda :( :D :mrgreen:

Yes 1As, and somehow managing to beat last year’s times on Bs. But I do have an extra 23bhp.

I think I’ll go back to Bs next year though. A’s break my car :lol:

Well that’s just it. 1a’s have obviously let go a bit earlier but I didn’t think they’d snatch quite so hard...

Unless of course you just ran out of talent and lost control..... :W :W :W

:D

It was a simple snatch and spin, low speed, almost nothing, but it was the track scenery that did the damage Mike, we've all had much worse offs and done no damage

I went straight on at Museum once ..... that was scary as there is a little more speed and nasty scenery involved.
That was just breaking way too late

Better to be an hour early than 1 minute late

Most of you would drive much slower at Loton if you knew what lurked a few feet from the track!! In the winter when all the greenery has died down, you can clearly see big lumps of concrete footings from its time as WW2 munitions depot :mrgreen:

That said, it's no worse than Wiscombe which doesn't hide the fact you whizz past 500yr old trees 5ft from the track 8)

The front end damage is similar.

I’ve reshaped the wishbone and fitted s new ball joint and now both front wheels point in the same direction. However, I’ve ordered a new lower wishbone as I’m worried is weakened.
