Wiring in a thunderstorm

Posted by Wagoneer in Wagoneer's Blog, 25 June 2016 · 46 views


Back again. Having actually bought a throw-away gazebo and even put it up over the car, I thought it rude not to do some work. My son helped move the car by pushing it down the garden a little so we could cut the grass under the car. I say grass, it wasn't really, more mud. Some donated slabs...

This was my first trip to Anglesey in the motorhome and also with Margaret so I was hoping for some good weather and socialising in the paddock and certainly a better night's kip compared to sleeping in the back of the trailer and I was looked after with sandwiches etc...

Almost Track Day Ready

Posted by Kevin (Mr T) - Joint Essex AO in Mr T's Blog, 18 January 2016 · 402 views

Had a few things that needed doing over the Winter, but a few electrical gremlins and time flying have seen the list cut back.

However the main thing, to get the Westy ready for track days this year, is almost complete.

Have a few fixings to sort and fettling to do but finally, it looks how I visualised when I started to make the changes.



Racks and tacks

Posted by AdamR in AdamR's MX-R1000 Build, 29 December 2015 · 530 views

Not had much chance to get stuck in recently due to work being busy, but can't complain. Have had a lot of time to think about stuff though and work things through in my head, which helped when I did get a few hours at the weekend.

Things will quieten down at work now after Xmas so hoping to make better progress... although I have just taken on two engin...

Sport E Sprinting - Plan B

Posted by johnev in johnev's Blog, 18 October 2015 · 543 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...

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 · 619 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...

So after months of anticipation Wednesday 27th May had finally arrived and time for us ( Michelle & I ) to set off on our trip to the St Goueno Hill Climb. We set off for our ferry from Portsmouth to St Marlo at 2.00pm, after an easy run down the A34 we’d soon joined the queue at the ferry terminal and could see ahead another member of Team WSCC Gra...


Roll Cage

Posted by pickmaster Andy Lowe in pickmaster's Blog engine swap, 12 February 2015 · 1,133 views

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...

I'm thinking of doing my first track day, is there anything I need to do to my westy or just the usual, tyres, water, oils etc?


Taking the plunge

Posted by Dave Stirrup in First Westi, 20 August 2014 · 596 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 · 712 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...
