Whats that smoke when you brake harshly? not from the tires.. the exhaust.
Hi John G, The smoke was from the exhaust valves from it getting too hot as it was getting up too 8500rpm so it started to smoke!
We have a new engine going in this week, a CGA 1348cc lump, so hope to have that up and running soon and out in October.
i think with the video's you were posting up pete that you would have been a lot faster with you dropping down a cog in the tighter bends. as the engine seems to bog quite a bit...
you broke my baby..lol
how in gods name do you get it that clean, spray over the dirt?? please let me know i deserve it since im constantly throwing engines in and out of my cars
hi, how did u get the dash covered in that material and how much did it cost?
+ i think they are two awesome micras!
The new white f1000 looks good!
Does you still stock the SD cage? My friend is considering building a car and is working out a budget. How much are they + postage to N.Wales?
Hi K6PFS, am looking to start road rallying, just curious as in to how much the cage cost? Cheers!
BTW, what an interesting and varied thread to the rest!
looking good peter (Y)
you,ll have to start a new blog for this specific build eh
Looking good. My shell is lightened so if you want any pics of the bonnet, boot etc etc just give us a shout. Are you allowed to lighten on RR/Enduro?
Well its been a while since I posted on here, so here is a quick update.
The blue micra will be out on its first event with Matt driving at Roskirk on Sunday.
For me my stage car is at the back of the garage whilst I get on with building the road rally car.
As you can see from the photos above I'd stripped the car and now the work is replacing old bits with new, thank you Matt H for this bits this week, and I have been purchasing a fair bit of stuff ready to finish it off, here is a list of bits I need to get fitted;
OMP 10point cage, thank you Kristian for this,
a pair of Pro2000 sparco seats,
Driver and navi foot rests,
Bilstien coilover front and rear,
Fuel and brake lines inside the car,
and putting the engine and box back in the car!
Apart from that its nearly finished............I'm lucky as I have a doner car to take parts off and im not in hurry to get it finish, as long as its ready before September.
Sunday for me is an autotest again, so more photos next week of Chris and I. will be out in the micra rally hire car, its nearly ready to go so if anyone wants to hire it let me know.
Hi K6, thread still going , and always changing!! Just wondering where you got your coilovers from? Cant seem to find any, and just incase, you dont happen to have any uprated springs/ shocks you want to get rid of?? Or any other rally parts!!
