    Headlight bulbs - recommendation

    Unfortunately I sold the car back in November. The lights were ridiculously bright - great as I was using the car in 12 Car Rallies, but never got pulled and no melting as they have fans in the units.

    Humphris Rallysport price list

    I know a lot of people have been asking about prices and what stuff Humphris Oxford/Humphris Rallysport do, so thought I would post up the price list Chris sent me back in January. If this is posted in the wrong place, please feel free to move it.

    Question: Running 13x7 wheels

    Right, I’m currently running 15’s and want to drop to 13x7 Ultralites. I’m using the car as a daily but also on 12 car rallies. I’ve installed KYB shocks and Direnza 35mm lowering springs - I’m aware this is still going to have massive arch gap. Am I going to have to cut the springs, and will...

    Nissan micra 1.0 rally car build

    What motor club you with? Uprate suspension (KYB dampers, and some decent springs will do), replace wheel bearings. Get it on a ramp and see what rubbers are deteriorating. Replace things like tie rod ends, bushes, discs, pads, ensure handbrake is decent, get some decent headlight bulbs...

    Front wheel bearings

    I’ve got to do mine, I’ve got Firstline which are a half decent brand. To be honest, you’ll probably find that the bearings are all made in the same factory, just put in different boxes with different part numbers.

    Headlight bulbs - recommendation

    Been wanting to upgrade my headlight bulbs since I bought the car, and the other day one blew so the perfect excuse to upgrade. Bought these and they are insane. 2 minutes to install, and the output is amazing...

    Pies Club1000 build

    It handles really well, can really chuck it into corners and roundabouts. No real updates, I have acquired a kevlar Motorpoint seat for the passenger, and fingers crossed, end of the month I will be buying my drivers seat, and possibly a decent steering wheel too. Also been looking at dreaming...

    Pies Club1000 build

    So, done a little more to the car. The brakes, or lack of, were scary to say the least, so fitted apex discs and pads up front and now when I press the pedal I actually start slowing, which is nice. Also had to do something about the boat like handling as I was getting seasick on the way to...

    Pies Club1000 build

    Done a few little things to the micra. Bought some wheels and fitted them, however one of the tyres is knackered so need to replace that. Annoying as I was told the tyres were in “good condition”. Filled the sunroof gap with sealant to stop it from leaking. Also fitted a Pulsar GTiR short...

    Pies Club1000 build

    Any links on a “how to” on moving the drain to the rear vents? I’m half tempted to do away with the thing completely, especially as I’m looking to ditch any unnecessary weight.
