Re: PRDA Forum Archive

Hi there, Maybe did see something about this, and from what I remember, the engine was a full race prepared unit with big valves, and maybe a steel crank and rods (getting older, can't remember like I used to!!!) Kugelfische injection was a timed mechanical system, and was used by Ford for the Group...

Re: Race Car Wanted

Hi Andy,

Good to see that the addiction hasnt worn off!

Hopefully you can get a car sorted, and you can get back out again! Its my plan to be racing again later in the year, and it would be great to renew the rivalry!

Keep in touch

Re: Winter wish list

HI there, 2 1/2" diameter would be a good starting point - however, have a look at an old book called Scientific Design of Exhaust & Intake Systems. Yes it talks about VX 4/90's and measurement before you could buy an electronic box of tricks but its still valid - not sure about a brookland...

Re: Winter wish list

Hi there, Steve is pretty much spot on, with his post in that the system has to be able to move or will crack or fatigue fracture. Our system uses slide joints, held together with springs, pretty much like a rally car uses. The reasons being that it seals up pretty well to save power loss, and is ve...

Re: Temperature Guage

Hi there, New torsion bars are available (or used to be) from Pelican Parts in America. Its really good fun changing them, especially getting the initial ride height somewhere near correct so that the nut and bolt adjustment have enough to fine tune. Detailed instructions on the initial setting of t...

Re: Its worth checking!! But where do you stop?!

HI Steve, Know what you mean! We always checked the alternator and timing belts for any little nicks, and changed the timing belt after five or six races and definately if I had been through a gravel trap. Yes they should last longer than that, but we dont run covers, and bits and pieces get thrown ...

Re: Brakes - getting the best out of pads

HI there, I have learnt the hard way, always change the disks with a change of pad make. I really had a big problem when I changed from Mintex to EBC, and then to Carbonne Lorraine. Check the disks carefully, any cracks - bin them, theyre not a fortune. You may also want to change the brake fluid on...

Re: Heat reduction inthe engine bay

Hi there everyone, Sorry not been on here lately, but just finished the move to the new premesis. Still walking like a penguin so the op in Sept cant come soon enough! We found that running distilled water and water wetter worked fine on our car with a standard 924 radiator. Agree with Gwyn about th...
