Re: Spaceframe Imps

Hi Roy, I’m sure you will get the handling sorted out, once you do they are great fun, I quite liked the tail hanging out on corners, but I like driving like that, not the fastest, way to do it, but more fun lol. I run a Fireblade in my one, but I had the engine mounted just 20mm off the back of the...

Re: Spaceframe Imps

Hi Mapman, Thanks for that, I had the wrong date in my post, I have changed it now, it was the April 1987 Doune that I took that picture, as I still have the program, and just had a look at it. Paul Batey Stiletto 998, John Whyte Stiletto 1294, Brian Innes Mason Stiletto 998 and Harry Simpson Imp 99...

Re: Spaceframe Imps

Hi Steve,
I took the picture of the light blue Stiletto at Doune Hillclimb, I think it was about 1987 and I'm pretty sure the Driver was a Brian Innes from Skene, it was a Mason Stiletto with a 998 in it at that time.
Hope this might be of some help to you :-)

I only had to take the engine out once after i had built it to r...

Re: Spaceframe Imps

Hi Keith,

I will ask John Whyte if it was the same car and what the Chassis was, It wasn't an F3 Chassis but I'm sure that the front suspension was March, very similar to the Kevin Day Car !!!!

It has went a bit quiet on hear now !!!!!!

Re: Spaceframe Imps

Les,can I ask,did you ever try the car without the rear wing?Did it make a difference? Some of the cars have huge wings,some none at all,was this down to driver preference,or a measureable gain in performance? Anybody got any experience of them? I prefer the look of the cars without them,I have to ...

Re: Spaceframe Imps

Hi,

The answer to who bought the yellow Jedi Stiletto on piston heads is George Gunn up in the north of Scotland, He Raced Imps in the 80s at Ingliston and Knockhill, and he has decided that he is coming out to play again. 8)
