Passenger turbulence

Posted by TREVORGIDLOW in TREVORGIDLOW's Blog, 01 September 2015 · 35 views
passenger, turbulence and 1 more...

Hi, I am soon to be a first time owner of a Westfield and have just joined WSCC.

The car I am purchasing has vertical pespex wind deflectors, hinged from the windscreen. No side panels in the 'door' location.

No turbulence at the driver side, but turbulence very uncomfortable for the passenger, seems to be a featue of Westfields and completely mystified...

TEL's TALE's 056/2015

Curborough Figure of 8 : 2015

A big break for several competitors since Blyton saw a split of events betweeen the Loton Park hillclimb weekend (which seemed a little expensive to me) and Curborough. Clearly I chose Curborough having enjoyed the new layout last year. There were 8 Westfield's as Adrian Clinton Watkins had withdraw...

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 · 360 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the wrong foot with my build (following a printed manual i got when i collected my kit from Ian which I assume is now out of date) suggests to fit all the panels first.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...

Sport E Dyno Results and Electric Power

Posted by johnev in johnev's Blog, 21 March 2015 · 463 views

I'm busy rebuilding the battery pack with half the battery cells to reduce weight. While this is ongoing I thought I might share my dyno results from last year and talk a bit about electric power verses petrol power.

The following graph shows power and torque against road speed. Remember the car has no gearbox. The motor is directly coupled to the diff....

Roll Cage

Posted by pickmaster Andy Lowe in pickmaster's Blog engine swap, 12 February 2015 · 581 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...

12v spaghetti fest

More progress. Having discovered that the original screen washer bottle had a hole in it I ordered a nice new kit:

Bag, fittings and wiring all for a very reasonable sum. As far as the MOT tick list goes, this is near the end of the jobs. A quick fiddle and one broken replacement washer jet (...

Taking the plunge

Posted by Dave Stirrup in First Westi, 20 August 2014 · 386 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 · 395 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...
