Apart from changing the oil and filter on Mhuffy, I'd like to shave about 50 kg off the weight of the Woody and fit an anti Roll Bar. :P


I could shave off 50kg by going on a strict diet :lol:

Famous last words. . . . .

With a bit of luck I'll have the Speedwell Demonstrator with me next year.

Still a painted bare shell at the moment though.

Both of us here have plenty to do to the cars, Chris wants to change the engine for next year so he has abit more power to keep up with the faster boys, and also have a play with the handling of it. Mine needs a new clutch and oil seal, and might try and do a few other needed jobs to it, but shall probably stay the same looks wise next year :shock:

Will have the new engine up and running in the Inno MK1 for Blyton. Will be interesting to see what difference the change from a 3.7 to a 3.4 diff makes.

Looking good for me and the old tin shed!
A rolling road session and a rub down with an oily rag.

Heres my position at the moment

Just got the shell back from the painters
just got an 8 port back from MBE
Got 2 subframes to modify and get painted
got a wiring loom to strip and re-make

And then I need to source all the parts to get the bloody thing built.

So no doubt ill be in the rally car again - at least the clutch is a working item now :-) although I did have an electrical issue with a failed relay that melted its housing shorted the wires and then put the current from 2 x 130watt headlamp bulbs directly through the lucas column switch - SMOKING........ - Frikkin crap italian relays..

Pull your finger out Paul, It's always great to see 'new' cars at Blyton, talking of which I might be bringing something quite interesting. :D

I have no idea what I'll be in this year.

But I'll be in something.
