Aintree 29 June 2019

I've just entered this with my S2000.

The RSSOC are an invited Club, so there's no need to join Liverpool Motor Club to enter. Classic Marques is not an invited Club according to the SRs.

Does anyone else fancy this ?

Other option was a bottle of Limoncello in the tank, though Grappa may work better... :lol:

I`m sure mine are a lot lower than that Steve. :shock: Have you given it an Italian tune up yet :wink: I think they’re similar figures to last year, I’ll have to check. They lowered the idle speed to 900 rpm, so I think this was a good pass. I’ve put it back to 1150. As for the Italian tune up. I s...

The Blue Bomber

Whilst I was messing in the garage today with my Ti and s2000, I noticed that the S2000 engine rotated in the opposite direction to the Ti. Will this be an issue with this build and if so how are you solving it? Diff?

This will be awesome!

As a recent convert, I can’t praise the s2000 engine enough.

Are you fitting the instrument binnacle as well? It’s great watching that led bar move across to 9000 as you accelerate 8) :D

Corky's Scimitars & S2K

I got the re-assembly finished off this morning. It started first turn of the key and I let idle up to full temp and let it burn all of the oily handprints off the exhaust manifold. I then went for good run out to blow away any remaining oil and crud from the exhaust side. It's boosting well again, ...

They were the same as I took off, standard seals (like a cut square wire washer).

I’ve not seen any other type.

I spent the day rebuilding and refitting the turbo. I also took the opportunity to get rid of the split webbing on the manifold. The turbo came apart and went back together quite easily. There is now no play at all in the shaft, and the blades spin freely. I just hope this cures the smoking problem ...
