Misfire

Having a quick look at the Kent Cams site, their V63 fast road cams suggest 0.40mm (16 thou) for both inlet and exhaust. Others have lower figures, between 12 and 16 thou generally.

Misfire

You haven’t actually changed the leads though?

The misfire - at idle, cruise, under load, or all 3?

Next is Castle Combe in July which doesn’t really suit the car (but we have to do at least one circuit amongst the hills, so this is closest).
I though there had to be at least one Hill and one Sprint - Curbs is a sprint last time I checked?

Petrol tank

The extra vent pipe is used when they went from a vented to a non-vented filler cap.

G130 YCF my first sprint car

I knew there were several options - but depends what you’ve got fitted and built the exhaust to as I’m guessing clearance is measured in cigarette papers?

Rear hatch catch pin

If anyone’s got some (and not Mark :lol: ) then it’ll probably be Graham as he bought a lot of the MB stock.

G130 YCF my first sprint car

Cortina, RS2000 etc IIRC although LandRover diesel or V8 ones fit too and don’t have much give (although the engine will sit a few mm lower) as they’re a bit thinner but don’t allow much movement.

SS1-C686CCR

So - 3 events in with a double-driven car and how’s it going? “Just add fuel” as the advert goes. Only thing that’s actually broken so far was the number plate so that’s now been replaced with a stick-on one as the beam splitter gets left on between events. Had to do a quick diaphragm change on the ...

small sports chassis weight

yeah but whilst its light enough to blow away in a stiff breeze, its not powerful enough to make any headway into said breeze when its running... :lol: I agree a 1300 in pov spec maybe 820kg-ish with hood, single mirror etc. Just for interest, our racer (galv 1600) was 847kg and that’s with a roll ...
