Re: Big Up for the RACESHACK.

I've now decided that life would be that much more wonderful and that much safer with a G-Rack (I like the name) - so as soon as my old TL streetfighter is sold then I'll be booking in for one of these - unless you fancy a deal on TL-Zeebub Ben :wink: Orb I'd love to do a deal on TL-Zeebub, but the...

Re: Engine warning light coming on. need help

at the early stages of collecting the bits I was advised that a 32mm pump would be the best bet. However now I know more I would never have spent the money on this. Whats the downdide to this size pump? Just checked the pump and all seems fine. Tried getting it out but it is in there tight. I don't...

Re: Bug brakes !

No worries.

You'd not want to do it on a show car but on a runabout, that's just got to work, it'll save loads as the RHD ones are way more money.

Yes way better than a Saxo for sure. 8)

Re: Engine warning light coming on. need help

Do you have a breather system fitted? If so where is it connected in? Do you have a deep sump? Does the drop in oil pressure come after a little period where the engine is revving a bit higher, say over 2750 to 3000 revs? Also that oil pump is hooooj! 32mm is massive 30 would be more than adequate a...

Re: Bug brakes !

You can.

Twist the mc and mount it at 45 degrees or so to it's original position. That should give you space to get the lines in.

You'll need to drill new holes to mount it, but it can be done.

Re: can some one tell me what set up i have !!

The spring plates would be ok I should think. I've seen worse and I've never actually seen a broken one.
Careful of those axle stands though, is that a breeze block it's sat on?

Re: Big Up for the RACESHACK.

So what's the story with the steering racks, Ben? They were developed by Gareth hence the name the "G RAQ". We've done a bit on them here to get them tip top. They're great, nice drive, fairly quick to do and improve the steering like you wouldn't believe. And we've now got them sorted so the horn ...

Re: Big Up for the RACESHACK.

Cheers Orb

Glad you were pleased.

That engine was the most fun we've had in a road car I think. Wait til you get to throw it down the strip.

You'll beat my times for sure.

Should get my new one done really eh?

See you on the blue line :wink:

A quick update for you now that it's back It's 110% barking!!!!!

Re: BWA Nurbrgring trip (All welcome)

I was putting out feelers really. Not got any fixed dates yet, we have to work around when the ring is open as they sometimes shut for test days and different events so that limits when we can do it. Prices will depend on numbers a bit I think. Going to have another look at it and see what we could ...
