Re: Belated Unseasonal Motor Meet (Eastern Region)

Great to see everyone again, discussion topics were brilliant, learnt loads as usual but not quite "sold" on Tesla yet, more work to be done by their number one salesman.

Already looking forward to next July and also a possible "Up North" weekend.

Even on the track I didn't need to upgrade the 8" drums on the Rat. Make sure the whole braking system is in tip top condition, get the best pads and discs for the front and you'll have plenty of braking for a road car.

Re: Ford capri laser 2.0 or capri 2.8i ???

Simples....pinto everyday and twice on tuesdays. Much more potential and much simpler to understand. Every major job on the cologne is hassle.
What size and what mods you make? Loads of variation so you can have fun playing.

Re: new record for destroying a cam?

Going back to the original topic, if the cam isn't lubed properly and/or the oil system primed before start up of an engine rebuild, the time taken to destroy a cam is measured in minutes rather than years. It's been done (not by me) so that would be the record.

Just looked on ECP, those 2 pictures appear to be for dimensions only, I don't think they are necessarily the exact part you get.

Re: Are speed cameras safe?

The answer is in the terminology. Speed LIMIT not speed TARGET. It's that simple. There is no "justification" for exceeding a speed limit, if you do so (and I do, I'm not being holier than thou) then you must accept the consequences whatever they may be. That can be as simple as fine and p...

Re: Spark plugs

I'd have the head off that if it were mine. What my dad used to call a "de-coke". Even if only because the spark plug recesses must be full of crud judging by the plug body! Clean it all up inside and out, re-grind valves, maybe a mild cam upgrade if you haven't already got one, new gasket...
