Notches and botches

Posted by AdamR in AdamR's MX-R1000 Build, 26 November 2015 · 99 views

Tested the notching setup at 30 degrees - a bit chattery and have to go fairly slow, but still good results (apologies for the array of notch pictures, I just love the shapes, haha). Also got a pipe vice which should stabilise things a bit for the angled notches...


Did a few more test welds and battered...


Next Upgrades

Posted by Mr T in Mr T's Blog, 05 November 2015 · 195 views

Had an early morning delivery and took the opportunity to try out my latest purchase


Although not an upgrade in itself, it does give a bit of a clue as to what I'm doing to the car next.

I've worked out how to do it, have a fabricator li...

Spend: £0.00

Seeing as the weather looks to be wet and miserable I'm putting my sensible head on and put the car on SORN. Gives me plenty of time to fit those winter upgrades I've been collecting :yes:

Sport E Sprinting - Plan B

Posted by johnev in johnev's Blog, 18 October 2015 · 230 views

Back in July 2015 my Sport E electric Westfield was very badly damage due to a 'racing incident' at the Curborough sprint circuit. The car rolled three times and in the process ripped off or bent all four corners of the car. None of the wishbones, uprights or wheels escaped undamaged. In addition all the bodywork was broken in some way. On the face of it...


Where did the last year go? Back on track.

Posted by Wagoneer in Wagoneer's Blog, 07 October 2015 · 151 views

It's been nearly a year since my last post and indeed since I last tinkered with my Westfield. Life got in the way in a number of ways and I had to focus my attention elsewhere. Now though, my lovely car is safely relocated and visible through the window down in the depths of Kent. With easy and level access all around hopefully I can crack on and...

headlights, halogen, LED

I have 1995 Westfield with the traditional halogen headlights and I would like to upgrade to something brighter/whiter, ideally both. Does anyone have any suggestions for brands, suppliers. Prefer the smaller headlights mine are approx. 140mm diameter (guessing from memory).

Curborough 5.7.15

Curborough July 5th 2015 Stephen’s story
Arrived at the track at 7.20am to find most of the Westfields already there and ready for signing on and scrutineering.
Unfortunately the driver’s briefing wasn’t until 8.50 but we managed to fill the time! The briefing was exceedingly brief for the 99% who had driven the track before and rather more deta...


Set off on the wrong foot ....

Posted by Nosbod in Nosbod's Mega S2000 Blog, 25 June 2015 · 445 views

Slow going today, realised that I have set off on the wrong foot with my build (following a printed manual i got when i collected my kit from Ian which I assume is now out of date) suggests to fit all the panels first. Here is the culprit .........

I only realised this today at work when i stumbled across a downloaded .pdf of the S2000 specific manual...

Roll Cage

Roll Cage Last year after seeing a photo of a Caterham stuffed under some Armco on the internet and being horrified by just 4 x 8mm bolts through fiberglass holding my windscreen away from my face I started making some phone call about buying a cage
For one reason or another I could not buy one off the shelf, have a delivery date or I would have to trail the car ha...

Taking the plunge

Posted by Dave Stirrup in First Westi, 20 August 2014 · 453 views

Well after a couple of years warming the passenger seat in Mark Redpath's SEW i started to look for one of my own. Following a car accident when i was younger (which we don't talk about. do we Mark?) its time to give up motorcycling. The pain in my wrist and hand is just to much. I needed something to replace the feeling i get from biking but without the...


IVA passed

Posted by JPLS in Nothing ventured nothing gained, 23 June 2014 · 497 views

It would seem i have been a little remiss in keeping this blog up to date - but all things come to an end. So ends this blog

Long story short I passed IVA on Friday 20th June :t-up:

Admittedly it was 2nd attempt, but not dissapointed - I trailered the car for the first appointment on Tuesday and as it passed all the safety bits i.e brakes, steering, bui...

So, I've not had a great deal of time to work on the car, but some stuff has happened.

I finally found an exhaust manifold that will do what I want.

It's a universal type thing but it's p...
