Re: LoT - Donington & Oulton - 28-29 Oct 2019

We should start a noise thread - i.e. car/track/noise test/level so that we can see which engine/exhaust combos are likely to pass/fail any given track.

Re: LoT - Donington & Oulton - 28-29 Oct 2019

BTW, after some quick sums, I reckon that the Oulton Park drive by sensors are approx 2m from the track; inverse square law says that power drops in proportion to the square of the increase in distance - so going from 0.5 to 2m is 4x the distance, so power level will be 1/16th. 1/16th is almost exac...

Re: LoT - Donington & Oulton - 28-29 Oct 2019

Yes, the static limit for OP is published at 104 or 105dBA (cannot remember which) and is measured in the standard 500mm from exhaust tip at 45 degree angle, high revs (2/3 or 3/4 of rev limit). You'll pretty much always pass this so long as you raise the revs smoothly and wait for the thumbs up bef...

Re: LoT - Donington & Oulton - 28-29 Oct 2019

Unless you have Scotty spec back box with no stuffing you ought to be OK at Oulton Park. Donnie is different - anything that sounds loud will fail - and they will kick you off to "fix"; second time it's end of your day. So if your exhaust is louder than the average bear, get a bung or fit a standard...

Re: CUP 220 - S CUP or Exige v6

(IMHO obvz) The best car of the lot is the Elise S3 plain old s/c variant, like what Campbell has (oh and I have one too ;-)). These cars are perfect for what you want to do, which is leave in garage most of the time, go out for a blast and park it up for another month. You cannot see what they look...

Re: fuel pump not working

The fuel pump will prime even if the ECU hasn't received the code (instead the engine will cut out a few seconds after starting) so you can ignore the code. The usual culprits for fuel pump not running are: * Inertia switch, as mentioned above. * 10A (or sometimes 20A fitted) fuse that lives in the ...

Re: Exige V6 Upgrades

That droop travel was actually awesome. You could get the front inside wheel to lift up but the rears were still in contact with the ground and driving the car forward. The car had no power, mind you, which always helps the handling ;-)

Re: #bemoretut Knockhill, Saturday 30th March 2019, 9am to 1pm

I don't actually know! Ring the office and ask if there is a specific fund or charity that supports the marshalls. Pretty sure there is a UK wide charity but there may be a specific Scottish one?
