  1. Ta, I threw away 3rd place tbh. Its a tough school, lose a few tenths and you get passed.
  2. Another year gone and woo hoo ... The old Zed has got a top 5 in the championship. It should have been a podium but things conspired against us. Last year's best was 63.73. Every event this year was either too cold, too curtailed or too hot... It was really messy. Sensors failed and brakes failed. I mowed down some trees. But in the end the mods were Extreme R5 compound tyres, big width fronts, Japspeed sports cats and loads of stickers which got it down to 62.91. (DQ'd for minor track limits,cough). She's absolutely flying right now. I should probably sort out the handling for next year.
  3. Just be careful with the helmet life if you are thinking of Motorsport. Nothing worse than spending a lot on a good one and it runs out after a couple of years. I had to replace mine this year because of the date. Left with a perfectly good 300 quid helmet that won't pass scrutineering ..
  4. why would anyone be so offended by that car.? Its well done and fresh colours. Hardly a travesty.
  5. They're cheap. Do it. Primera is cool but RWD ....
  6. Chatted recently to a bloke with a Listerbell Stratos. The car is perfection. So clean, better than the original... And quick even by modern standards
  7. Cough, not all your fault. When I jacked up mine and there was a bit of a creak you said I should move the jack in a bit more to the sill. I repositioned it and then whanged the handle ....right down your wing. Soo much ouch...
  8. There are a couple of one way valves in the pipes up under the trim at the top of the engine bay. Follow the pipe from the water tank and keep digging. You might need to replace the valves (couple of quid), maybe a pipe has popped off or it just needs a clean.. Good luck.
  9. Go on then, throw me a price for the OMP seats and rails...
  10. That looks pretty damn smart. How you're going to sync the fronts and rears to stay aligned and always stop with them on the bottom like that... who cares, nice work.
  11. Datsun baseball hat to keep the sun off the bonce..
  12. I got lucky then with the prop breaking straight away before the diff got damaged. It led to the diagnosis and the garage (Slide Motorsport) were classy and fixed it all for free.
  13. I had a prop shaft shatter from the same wrong installation. You wouldn't think it could cause such problems what with every other bush on the car being years old and worn.
  14. You could pull the fuel pump fuse. Its a pain to get to it
