How are you planning on getting 100KG back into it, are you allowed ballast?

Ballast is an option. But I don't know if you have seen the European hill climb cars. Aero aids all over the place.

So let's get it flat bottomed and difusered and then see. Also replacing the fiberglass boot floor with steel will help. As will the strengthening of the front subframe. Note any added weight only low down.

The mad thing is I could easily lose more weight.

I do need to get to a meeting and check a few things out as I might be too concerned. Can I run an MSA logbooked car in Europe as is?

Maniflow are being crap at getting back to me re CATs in their down pipe. Might have to mail them again.

Out of interest what is the minimum weight in your class?

 

I've spent many a rain sunday watching videos of retro european hill climb cars in all their flame spitting crazy areo'd glory. 

I think the closest thing to them in the UK is harvey Death's V8 spaceframe Mini.

Ok that would be in the mad class. Where just Profile from windscreen back is required. Not looked into that class.

1300cc Max engine size with Original block 650kg. So just about original Mini weight. And as we know Carl had his car down to about 450kg mod prod.

On mad thing that I might not get around is original fuel tank. Sorry no Fing way am I running a standard Mini tank. They are not safe.

What do you call it when you keep checking the location of your parcel with the provided tracking service?

Get on the plane!

Whilst cleaning the remote housing It got me thinking about these threaded holes. May be add a grease nipple or two to help lubricate the shift rod.

Just more de rusting and coating and painting of parts today.

Engine refit this week as I need to sort the exhaust routing and under body panels.
