Re: Suitable race series for my Imp

Hi,

Anglesey club does mixed races, I have done them before in the Imp and they are a good bunch.
Otherwise to race with fellow Imp's you would have to put standard arches on which is bottom of your to do list, cost and time Etc.

Sorry not a lot of help
Cheers

Re: HSCC Race Series 2016

I spoke to the Hscc and Alan is still at Autosport show and it looks like that is a closed wheel race non championship race, however they did say it is still provisional and there is a chance it could change. No invite for the HRSR series cars, must be too fast for them http://classics.honestjohn.co...

Re: Kermit 1965 MK1

Hi James, unfortunately Kermit won't be at national as I am racing at Croft, but he is running well I still need to pull out the OSR wing to get it finished off. Do you still have any bits as I am missing this part of the dash? http://i1371.photobucket.com/albums/ag305/imp423208/DSCN2942_zpsmttknktz...

Re: tyre pressures for track

Hi,
I run the same tires and use 28psi for rears and 18psi for the fronts on a 6" rim and I have used the same pressures on 5.5 wide rims too.

Hurrah sailed through the MOT no problems and now in use everyday for work, just welded up the hole from the radio aerial and painted the front with a brand new fiberglass bonnet as the steel one was a pile of work to sort later on. http://i1371.photobucket.com/albums/ag305/imp423208/DSCN2879_zpsqtz...

Re: HSCC Race Series 2015

Second race start bang clonk clonk and abandon all hope of going further!

I slipped the gearbox out last night to find 4 teeth missing from the crownwheel, looks like a trip to see my gearbox guru Dave.
Just when I thought I could make a start on with the new racecar.
