I expect you've already done so but just in case - if you've put loads of water in the coolant will not have enough antifreeze in it (thinking from the corrosion point of view) so I would check the strength with one of those measuring thingmys that I cant remeber the name of to avoid draining and re...

Hmmm.... 5500 rpm in top...that's 82 MPH...are you sure he pulled you over for the noise level? Now that I've purged last nights half bottle of red from my system I think it might have been 4500 :lol: what air filter system are you using? Twin K&N filters - the induction noise is only loud when on ...

Good result and and nice looking motor -well done Geoff and Stephen! Just as an aside, what is the silencer used on across the back setups? I'm using a 4" cherry bomb DIVER as sold by Demon Tweeks (page287 if you have the 2007 catalogue) on my trials car which I connected using a 30 degree bend, fle...

Hi Tbs and edis is ok, so long as you dont have forced induction (as then the equivalence formula of 1.4 applies and the 998 effectively becomes 1397). Good luck with the project. Although not yet confirmed, for 2007 the HSA are proposing for class N to be an amalgamation of up to 1040 modified road...

Next season, the weights above are to be increased by 80kg, but will include the driver. So a driver weighing 15.5 stone with a 1040 currently at the minimum 630kg could remove 20kg off his car next year then :D (I'm in a glass house on this point so not about to throw any stones...) Does that 80kg...

HSCC regs state 600kgs as the minimum for a 998 Imp. My hillclimb car weighs 620kg with 1 gallon of fuel on board but would gain weight if I made it legal for HSCC. Elsewhere on the forum Graeme Wight Jr mentions that his hillclimb car is down to 550kg but he doesn't have a roll cage and without any...

Toyota rods are about 15-16mm longer than imps I assume you use a thicker spacer between the head and block to accomodate the extra rod length - or do the CPS pistons have a shorter compression height? (I guess there wouln't be enough room for the rings if the compression height of the piston was 1...

Just occurred to me that it costs more to spectate at the British GP than compete at Curborough :shock: Not only that, if the bloke in front of you spoils your run by 'losing control' of his car at 10mph, almost hitting the barrier before stalling, at Curborough they would show the red flags and let...

Are you going to hillclimb it Keith? With so little running time at least you can check it out by trying it round the block if it's road legal. I guess not such a problem if you're going to race it.

I had a scrutineering problem with the coolant pipes. The MSA regs say that, as well as being painted red, if non-metallic must be internally or externally metal braided also that jubilee type clips can only be used if the pipe has suitably swaged ends. In common with a few others I've seen I used 2...

If you have some particular events in mind I would be inclined to contact the organising club and ask them to send you the regs rather than wait to see if they arrive. I've had most of the regs for this year's events and the majority of entry lists are already open so best not to delay I would sugge...

Well hopefully we'll meet up sooner or later. Interesting to note that there were 4 Imps at Prescott last weekend
Ian and Nigel Moss both with 1200 Imps, Richard Bourne and David Oakes with their 998s (Stiletto and Chamois repectively).

Despite the forecasts the Wiscombe Park HSA round remained dry last weekend. Slick organisation by Woolbridge Motor Club ensured that the event ran smoothly and there was even time for an extra 'fun run' at the end of the afternoon with competitors contributing a pound each towards the local church ...
