Now to make up a 4 into 1 into the silencer box. Then decide how the exhaust exit and door bottom should look. Thinking of letting all the air under the bonnet exit out of the door bottom.
Well I went to see the 'Lord of Lydden' bike meeting today and got myself all fired up. So the Jags coming out for the last meet of the year ! Not the quickest car as it's a bit big, but great great fun and that's what it's all about ! So got home and ordered tyres, now need fire extinguisher and harness as both out of date !
When I took the bottom picture having built the engine and put the car back together from a pile of bits, one of my employees said ' I don't know why you bother wasting all your time , motor racing is a waste of bloody time' . Well two years of evenings and weekends and any spare cash it was finished. Wasted time ! I don't think so.
Tom's taking this speedway lark a bit serious. Reckons he's going to be riding for team GB this time next year lol. Told him he looked 'nice' but he didn't get it !
Thanks Ken for the pictures and video , gives me an idea as what was going on with the suspension. God knows how they raced them this soft, it was like being at the helm of a boat.
All the water on the track just added to the effect !
