Going to tickle both cars for a shake down for the following weekend, the sv pulley pin issue was a shame, credit to Phil Booth for sorting everything out.

The SV needs a little more setting up with roll centres and stuff, but nearly there, with the weather being good for Sunday, the times will def improve.:thumbsup: Simon you should achieve a 13 with the sx, just need to put the right tyre on the front, if u know what I mean.

Cheers for starting the thread :)

checked mine and all good.

Hope I candeliver this weekend. SX for me, SV I think is ok for the mo. Just need to change rest of the turnbuckles and change my gearing. May give the gearing a test and reset the slipper. Other than that 4wd I feel. It needs some attention as we can't have the SV having all the fun!

Steve doesn't the XX need a few cobwebs blowing of it ;)

I think I will get thrashed in 4wd this weekend :(

What are the part numbers you need?

dibble34
20-05-2010, 07:05 PM
I have an old bulkhead you can have. I replaced it because there is some play, but better than nothing. I ordered a brace off dms. Its due within the next 7-10 days and they have said they ordered 2 types. One was 9 and one was 11. I said to them to send me whichever they get first so presumably the other will be available.

Nice drive from Simon today, the Tamiya went really well. Nice to see Bob Cat there as well.

Also a blast from the past Chris Ellis, an A class driver many years ago.

Really tough conditions today with really being unforgiving, times really slowed down when the temp increased.

Great crowd today, thanks for a good meeting, just need an ICE COLD drinks next week to cool things down. :cool:

Just hope we have some hot weather still :)

Glad you like the B4, time to get it set-up. I think he has 35 / 30 currently in the shocks.

You did well with the XX. The 2010 summer season is starting to shape up very well.
