Bloody hell that's not good at all
Yes he did.Pretty worrying that subframe, even in a road car to be honest, let alone a rally car. As @Pauleds suggests, I'd put in a weld-in kit after this weekend. I put one in in the Escort. So much better than anything bolt in, if a bit of a pain to get lined up.
Someone on here welded some mounts in to the latest FIA spec - it might have been @Tomotek?
They are a bit of a pain to weld all the way round. I have never known anyone to be pulled up for them though. It wasn't mentioned when I did an event earlier this year, but they usually only check the seat/harness/extinguisher dates and the pull cables.Yes he did.
The ones pictured above aren't allowed anymore iirc because you aren't able to weld all the way round properly or something like that. I seem to remember you have to weld the plates in and then bolt the rails to the plates?
It's only an FIA reg, so most stuff in the UK is only MSUK.They are a bit of a pain to weld all the way round. I have never known anyone to be pulled up for them though.

A lot of cars would need new seat mounts if they banned them, that's for sure!
It wouldn't surprise me if it comes eventually. Motorsport UK seem to have started to adopt more FIA stuff. Regardless, I'll go FIA spec in my next car just to be safe!It's only an FIA reg, so most stuff in the UK is only MSUK.
If MSUK did chose to follow the FIA reg it would mean 1000's of people would require new mounts like you say.
Always build to FIA and SFI standards if you can.It wouldn't surprise me if it comes eventually. Motorsport UK seem to have started to adopt more FIA stuff. Regardless, I'll go FIA spec in my next car just to be safe!
I’m not sure how much it weighs but I don’t think it’s the lightest one about. Still got full interior loom and heaters.A shame about the issue, but you were setting decent times, which is encouraging.
Get a Sadev in this and it will be a rocket. How much does it weigh?
Yeah it’s for sale at the minute as the ultimate spec rally clio has come for sale minus the engine. So if mines goes I’ll be buying thatHave i seen this for sale somewhere?
Them lanes were amazing too. So fast and flowing. Looking forward to the next closed road eventNothing like the buzz of over 100 down a stage with the car moving around.
Keep up all the good work.
Don't think I could do lhd. I know his car was a giant killer it was always quick when I seen it and got very good results. So if its better should be good!Not his but car is pretty much identical. With a few better bits on it and steering wheel on the right side
Ah ok. Not sure I would go down that route to be honest. The problem with going up to the big engine is that you also have to run heavier. Chris West who runs the 306 in the MSN championship has even talked of going back to a 2.0-litre lump I'm told, as he could the run car a lot lighter.He’s still got it. Was talk about a millington going in it but don’t think that’s happening now
I should of sent it down his door when it opened upf**king chevette's lost you a good bit of time there.
yeah infield was like ice. Had to literally just drive over it at road speed. The circuit was fine though. Michelin wets do the businessThat video proves why I couldn't be a co-driver - I would be losing my s**t with the guy in the Chevette lol
Looked blinkin' slippery!
