We have had some Tiger drag meeting visits to Long Marston which were good fun. May be a cheaper alternative to Santa Pod. My Tiger ran 13.74 @105 in this years Brighton Speed trials on poor quality tarmac. That was handicapped by having above average mass in the drivers seat! 302, lightly superchar...
Well done Tony for organising a great trip, & thanks to all attendees who made it such fun. Hope all got back in one piece. Dean, not sure if your new grit blasting service is going to take off, may need a bit more refining!. I'm sure Tony will post photos soon.
I have a chance to buy a good 2nd hand 5 speed Tremec gearbox. But it looks larger than my T5 around the tailshaft area. Has anyone got advice on how easy to fit, especially regarding need to cut out metal under the arm rest box/ cross member. My bellhousing is suitable. Cable or hydraulic operation...
You're lucky. I think that the Brighton speed trials may have overheated my clutch,causing gear selection problems, so by thurs night I've got to take out engine/gearbox, repair clutch & replace. Whilst working normal hours. A chalange to be ready for next friday, shame not to go by Tiger.
Great minds think alike. I have a set of Cosworth discs & calipers off e-bay to fit as a winter project. i reckon all you need is a mounting plate made up to bolt on the axle flange to take the caliper. Some adjustment of mounting the disc will be needed for alignment. And finally sorting out hand b...
I'm biased, but love the 15x6 revolution 5 spokes on my car. Fill the arches ok, good choice of tyres, & can run Brembo brakes inside. Plus everyone run Minilites or Panasports.
Why bother with a bracket, use some stud into the threaded inserts on the front of the cylinder head to pivot alternator off. Much neater installation & uses a shorter fanbelt. I can't find how to display photos, but there was a short article in Cats Whiskers a year or 2 ago, with photos.
The common upgrade is to use a set of Brembo 4 pot calipers & vented discs from a Peugoet 406 V6 Coupe. The calipers bolt straight on & the discs fit after minor machining. But you ideally need 14 or 15" wheels. check out e-bay or breakers yards for parts.
