Re: hscc 2014

Great to hear that there will be so many supporters present - after the success of the post race cake last year, we have pushed the boat out and bought some chocolate cake to share. Sadly it won't match up to the quality of last year's cake, but it should still be good.

Re: Davrian Super Saloon gearbox

As far as I know, all the original ratios are available for the straight cut 5 speed boxes, a lot of money has been invested in having them remade. Best to ask a transaxle specialist for advice on the best ratios, but if you always use the same tyre size, know what your max revs are and the desired ...
