Thanks for the tips guys. Great idea using the masking tape. I had new rear wings fitted a few months ago and stupidly forgot to get the arch lips trimmed when they were fitted - doh! It's the O/S that rubs the most with mine. I fitted a Tom Hall Panhard Rod kit last year which allows the rod to be ...

I've just purchased and fitted a set of genuine Minilite wheels 6x15 (195/5x15 tyre) front and 7x15 (205/50x15 tyre) rear as per the guidance in past forum posts. Wheels were supplied direct from Minilite for fitting to a Tiger. Initially with driver and passenger, half full fuel tank and empty boot...

There is also the option of the British made calipers from BCC. They utilise the existing discs and simply bolt on. I've had them on my Tiger for a year and I'm very pleased with the way they perform. Details in an earlier thread.

Here's a link to a video shot by Bengt Ericsson of his Tiger driving from Las Vegas to the Furnace Creek Resort in the middle of Death Valley. 38 deg C at 10.15 in the morning, his Tiger seemed to cope very well.

Hi Tony, thanks for the feedback.

Maybe Platinum plugs might be a compromise as they are supposed to have double the life of standard ones.

You'll be interested in the results. http://www.gtsparkplugs.com/CarbCFMCalc.html I have 650 cfm on my 347 stroker, and Sleath reckons that's still just too much, which was a real surprise! I came down from a full race HP 750 cfm setup. I checked the link out and it specified a 500cfm for my engine...

Brake Pads

Brake Pads - I used Mintex M1144 on my Tiger when I had the original calipers. They are a semi competition pad ideal for fast road or light track day use. Down side is they leave a lot of dust on the wheels and squeal a bit until warm. I used them on the Monte tour and they worked really well on all...

Iridium Spark Plugs

Does anyone use iridium spark plugs in their Tiger? Iridium plugs are supposed to last at least four times longer than standard copper cored plugs, they also claim to improve power and economy.

The new website went live today.

Some pages as yet to be populated and others updated, work in progress.

The gallery section now has an area where members can have an image of their car. Just send in a recent photo and the chassis number.

Let us know what you think about the site.
