  1. Latest Vid from this weekend, final event of the season at Harewood.
  2. Couple of Pics from recent events: Hethel (Lotus factory) sprint day Harewood Hillclimb, early morning shot
  3. First time at Snetterton on Saturday, went very well overall.
  4. August 6th & 7th Hillclimb at Harewood.
  5. I have never actually heard my zed launch of the line from outside the car, someone was filming at harewood this weekend and posted up a vid. Have to say the combination of tarmac sportz cats, miltek y piece and cobra rear section sounds bloody awesome. also @Kieran O'Quick follows me so you can hear what a supercharged zed sounds like with the exhaust just about held together with paste. Skip to 12:45 for our zeds or enjoy the whole vid. my next vid with summery of the weekend will be done soon.
  6. Welcome. Same age and colour as mine and near as makes no difference same mileage. The 350 clutch does have a high bite point naturally, i have just replaced mine and its still high. You can mess with the clutch fork position right up behind the clutch pedal, there are several guides on this site, and i have done this but as i have aftermarket everything its still fairly high. With oem parts you can get it much more to your preference.
  7. Car now Fixed, although you sort one thing and another problem manifests..... Here she is after a wash, back to looking shiny and mean. Latest Video from this weekend back at Harewood Hillclimb.
  8. I have the full stereo, sat nav, speakers etc all removed from my HR in good condition but the stereos are coded to car and i dont know the code for mine, too much hassle for me to put back in as i have resoldered all the wires for new head unit and speakers. If your interested let me know.

    Air Bag Light

    Gonna get a replacement on ebay for 50-60 quid, seems easy enough to replace, unit just held in with a few bolts under the head liner and re-attach connector, hopefully a “new” unit will make the light go away.
  10. I have currently got Yellowstuff pads. What i would say is very good value for money They are like a 6/10 in all aspects. I have had better and worse pads so these sit right in the "fast Road" category better than OEM, by no means a track pad but do actually get better when warm. Very progressive feel and no problem stopping the Zed. they do wear fairly fast ( more so when stomping down hard) which is prob why there are videos on youtube showing them disintegrated after a track day but if its just road use or sprinting / very light track use like i say excellent value for money. They are fairly low dust as well compared to most. Its EBC's most popular pad in the range

    Air Bag Light

    I recently had an intimate moment with a crash barrier (video on my build post) and just getting it repaired now BUT the side airbag went off at the time, by side i mean the one stored in the headlining and when it went off covered the drivers door window area, now there is a permanent red warning light on dash (not blinking like lots of online videos) Does anyone know how to get rid of the light or any options to bypass it, fit a resistor in somewhere like i have done with seats and steering wheel (when swapped for aftermarket) or does the system need resetting? need new airbag? etc. I have tucked the airbag back into headlining for now so you can't actually tell its gone off and not bothered if it ever works in the future for what use it was, I will have a helmet on most of time anyway. Am i right in thinking its an MOT failure if on at time of test? Any help appreciated guys/gals
  12. Cheers guys, it actually drove back home ok, apart from the arch constantly trying to eat the tyre, just crawled back home at 50mph on inside lane as i was scared tyre would blowout, will take it down to my local bodyshop for an assessment, will take a hanky with me just in case.
  13. A very bad day for me and the Zed at Aintree yesterday. Feeling gutted at the minute.
  14. Thats because you have an A and D in your name, very high risk as they also appear in the word “accident”
  15. Is there a universal list of what classes as a modification? I am guessing many cars on the road have non oem wheels but probably only a small percentage have actually declared them. Its seems daft that non standard wheels makes you potentially more of a risk but your allowed to put budget ditchfinder linglong tyres on no problem. likewise, the same with car stereos and the list goes on. Do stickers/graphics class as a mod and effect the premium? (God i hope not) Also why does my premium go up (with current insurer) with mods but they will only replace with oem parts, surely if someone is paying a premium they should expect to get the premium part replaced?
  16. Next Vid, no action just me ranting at the clutch and RAC

    Clutch help

    @Coz@TORQEN ordered the torqen csc earlier today as having more clutch problems, can you send out asap please as its a race against time to get car sorted for this weekend. many thanks
  18. Episode 3 brings us right upto present. This is last weekends events at Loton Park Hillclimb.
  19. Next Video I have put together in double quick time, yes I know when you watch it, there is no footage of me actually contact washing the car but it was done and a quick detailer used before final shots.
  20. First update 2022 … As i have just purchased a new PC and Go-pro I thought i would document my highs and lows throughout the season. I have decided to enter the connaught speed championship this year alongside the regular harewood championship. The connaught events are all over the country so will be a great experience for me and a steep learning curve. This first video gives a brief introduction to sprinting/hillclimbing with footage from the recent practice day at harewood. Now as i have a full time job, life and 2 kids to try and not kill daily, All the footage will be one take, no prep and minimum editing on the pc, mainly because i don’t know what i am doing anyhow. So with that in mind, i make no apologies for taking 30 minutes of your life you will never get back, but in the lottery odds chances that you don’t mind the content then give it a follow as there will be semi regular updates every couple of weeks (if the car and myself make it through in one piece)

    Clutch help

    Cheers, just ordered the wilwood master and some more rbf fluid from you. Will get that done and see how it goes.
  22. So today was practice day getting ready for sprint/hillclimb season. All was going well until i went to change down to second and it would not go into gear, lifted my left foot to try again and clutch was stuck to floor. My first thoughts were cooked fluid (again) but the fluid looks fine, last changed poss 18-24 months back but i do syphon out and replace the reservoir every couple of months. Only ever use motol RBF top spec stuff. after being towed to paddock and leaving car to cool down for 2 hours i could select gears when ignition was off and the clutch pedal had come back but i could not select any gear when i started the car. Left it another hour, same thing so stuck it in 1st with engine off, started car with clutch down and it bumped off, then i could select all gears again, drove it home fine. so i am trying to figure out the problem as i dont want it happening again, especially if im at an event miles away from home. i already have the uprated xtreme clutch and CSC kit, braided lines, and i have heat wrapped everything i can under the car as i have had this problem twice before, is it the master cylinder? as thats the only thing i havent replaced, or something else? The car was hot but it was only about 7 degrees external and i was only doing a second consecutive run which makes me think the fluid shouldn’t have been close to boiling. is there anything i can try before replacing parts or should i just get a master cylinder and new fluid and try that? final point, reservoir stayed at maximum, no fluid loss, if anything it was slightly higher than max after clutch went to floor (which may mean master is gone) or just normal expansion at temp.
  23. Bath time and track wheels and tyres on ready for season starting next week.
  24. Really like that colour/livery, seats look superb as well. Sure you will enjoy it, i bet you were torn between that and a nissan leaf though. Tough decisions in life.
