Thanks.Nice job on the lines! I have them to do on the Twingo next. Got lots of questions.
Where did you get the parts?
What tools made the job easier?
Does the clio not have a return fuel line?
Did you buy the connector that goes into the tank?
I am very nervous about doing it but it would cost a fortune to send it away to get done. Also wish I had a nice garage like that lol
I just bought a single u bend piece and then cut down to length. The rest of the pipes are just a standard Clio set.The U piece of hose for bypassing the heater matrix, was that an off the shelf part or was it cut down from another piece? Need the same for mine
Thanks.This is how it's done. Proper build. I'd love to do this one day when I get a unit or garage big enough.
Quite the escalation tho:
Buy track car - oh no gearbox bearing has gone - f**k it, full nut and bolt resto
f**k that! He did really well. Bet the marshals absolutely filled their orange pants. Glad he walked away.Part of the fun for me is building and working on these cars and I definitely wouldn't have the budget to pay someone else to build it anyway. That said, I'm still easily into £20k. For that money though I have a very competitive car that is always at the sharp end of 30-40 car grids.
Also worth mentioning that if you are starting from scratch, spending money on safety really can't be overstated. As witnessed by one of our race colleagues last weekend at Thruxton which he managed to walk away from.
I recon one of the biggest takeaways from that is to strap extinguishers down better, he's lucky it never took him out. Does anyone know if there was a mech failure which caused the crash? Early on he looked to have decent rear end grip but last couple of corners was sliding about a fair bit more, looks to early to be too much heat in the tyres? I honestly though he had caught it in time and kept his foot in like a champ.f**k that! He did really well. Bet the marshals absolutely filled their orange pants. Glad he walked away.
