    Clio Decat Friendly MOT centres in the Central Belt

    So your asking for a list of garages which are falsifying MOT's to be listed online? Not the wisest of ideas tbh.

    firing order 182?

    Duff new leads? It should just be a case of connecting 1 lead from coil terminal number 1 to cylinder 1..etc. Have you tried the old leads again?

    Standard discs and pads for the track?

    I did Snetterton on Sunday with standard Pagid pads and discs all round. I'm pretty hard on my brakes and could do a handful of laps before I had to back off for a couple of laps to let them cool down.

    All 1*2 Alternator Pulleys The Same?

    I believe not. I bought a replacement 2nd hand alternator for my 182 and the replacement had a plastic one, I put my metal one onto it. Everything seems fine, not sure if this was of any help though

    Porsche Cayman S Race Car

    Looking good Sam! Who is doing the build? The 993 I will be looking after probably in some britcar this year went testing yesterday......gearbox coming out this weekend! Maybe he should have checked the box before testing/ fitting it to make sure he had all the gears.

    I believe we are looking at a minimum of 150bhp hopefully is the aim. Limited as too what we were able to do due to regulations but we shall see in the next month or so I guess.

    Caterham Lotus Super 7 - The Rebuild!

    Great to see this being rebuilt and nice to see the Lotus twin cam being retained. We have just built a race spec twin cam for our 1965 Elan appendix K, new block etc from states. Can't wait to hear it up and running. I'm currently installing a Syvecs S6 ECU to it, going to be a fantastic car!

    New engine in fairness would be the cheapest option I would imagine. I would also have road tested the car after changing the p/s pipe had it been a job I was doing. I road test 95% of the cars I work on, admittedly they are sports cars but it's amazing what we pick up on during a road test that...

    Snetterton Race Report - Season Finale!

    Was due a good winter rebuild anyway so heyho....keeps me in work I guess! So can't complain too much! Exige went into the gravel at paddock and they couldn't get it out quick enough in order for it to continue the race. Pretty gutting really as I've just spent the last couple of months building...

    You can buy the new sensor cheaply. Then just a case of popping the mirror cover off and wiring in the new sensor

    Elise Update

    Yeah, Chris put some good times in, and overall Cassidy was showing some of the best driving he has done for a while too. True, not been a great season but I suppose reliability does play a big part. The stupid thing is, when you look at the actual facts we do have reliability. In the sense...

    Elise Update

    Seemed to be going well while you were out on track. We also had a mixed weekend with the Europa! Made great progress with the dampers on Friday and things were looking good for the race. Started getting a long brake pedal during pre-practise on Saturday, so bled the system hoping it had just...
