2018 Goodwood Revival 'TT' race

Great to see that KV had a very respectable 12th place finish to this years' TT, against some very rapid opposition and professional drivers. Does anyone know why No. 8 wasn't running this year? We were spoilt last year with two Tigers in the race :D Can any of our classic race aficionados advise if...

You're making great progress, she'll soon be done :wink: Back to the cam, I have a Comp Cams 281 HR, just a little milder than what you're going for as it suits my driving style. http://www.compcams.com/Company/CC/cam-specs/Details.aspx?csid=1045&sb=2 So far I can't fault it, especially the sound :D...

Hi Stuart, I had to go through this process about 5 years ago to reclaim the registration for my Tiger. It was actually quite straightforward. If I remember correctly, there is (or was) a form to download from the DVLA website that you will need to complete, giving details of the vehicle. This then ...

Throttle Linkage Brackets

Martin, It's worthwhile building some compliance into the bearing arrangement due to the dynamic movement between the engine and bulkhead under acceleration and deceleration. You don't want the throttle sticking under hard acceleration. The throttle brackets on my car were badly worn, as they all ar...

Beware - Further Attempts By the EU To Meddle With Our Hobby

Guys, Yet again, the EU is trying to meddle in our hobby and restrict us to keeping our cars totally standard: http://fbhvc.co.uk/2012/08/23/eu-roadworthiness-testing/ http://www.the-ace.org.uk/armageddon/ We all need to get vocal about this or we could be stuck with 13" steel wheels, cross-ply tyre...

Hi, I've got a set of these I'll be fitting in the next few weeks. Overall the manufacturers have done a good job and the finish is very good. Just be aware that the shape is slightly different from the originals (I'll see if it's noticeable when fitted). They're also quite a lot thinner at about 1....

Thanks for the responses. I've ended up using the Ford studs, 55mm long are right for my wheels and give plenty of thread engagement. You can get them from Demon Tweeks, Rally Design, Europa Spares etc. For anyone else contemplating using these, you'll have to drill the hubs out to 1/2" diameter tak...

Wheel Studs

Hi, Does anyone know of a source for extended wheel studs for the Tiger? The original ones aren't long enough for my alloy wheels to allow a minimum of 1 x diameter engagement with the wheel nuts. All the 7/16 UNF studs I can find have a larger spline diameter than the Tiger ones and I'd rather not ...
