  1. Thames Valley Meet

    I'm now a maybe as my father-in-law is not recovering as he should after an operation on Friday.
  2. Ecoboost baffled sump

    While scanning eBay I'm tempted by this "kit" because it comes with 10 flaps. The plates may or may not be useable. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F262962987574
  3. Ecoboost baffled sump

    Thanks Chris. How is it secured in place? I assume it's a copy of the Shawspeed one... http://www.shawspeed.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=90&category_id=31&vmcchk=1&option=com_virtuemart They seem to use bolts to the bottom of the engine. I wondered about tac welding it in place like others so with the S2000 engine.

    Hi Chris, Do you remember what thickness you used and where you got the flaps from? If you were doing it again would you skip the hard plastic step or did it help? Many thanks, Tim
  5. Mazda gearbox chassis mount - picture request

    PERFECT, thank you.
  6. Mazda gearbox chassis mount - picture request

    Hi All, Does anyone have a picture of the Mazda gearbox mount? Preferably fitted and preferably in a Sport 250 but an SDV might help. Many thanks, Tim
  7. Brake master cylinders and balance bar

    As per the other thread... Smaller on the front is normal. Also confirmed by Titon... 1min 30...
  8. Brake master cylinder piston sizes

    Excellent Mike thank you. 1:30 on the video confirms exactly.
  9. Brake master cylinders and balance bar

    I'll recheck on the original thread. Should be an issue to swap them if needed.
  10. Brake master cylinder piston sizes

    Are you sure you mean smaller to the front? I maybe totally wrong but in a separate conversation someone has suggested... May have done some assumptions, but is all about travel and caliper size. When smaller is the cilinder, more travel will be needed to achieve the same displacement in the caliper's piston, but more pressure will be applied to the pads for the same ammount of force in the pedal. (long travel high sensitivity pedal//soft). When bigger is the cilinder, less travel to achieve the same displacement in the caliper's piston but less pressure will be applied to the pads for the same ammount of force in the pedal. (short travel very firm pedal).
  11. Brake master cylinders and balance bar

    I'm using standard Westfield high spec calipers front and rear so 4 pistons and two pistons. I see your theory but seems odd that two people have advised the other way round. What do you have fitted?
  12. Sport 250 (2.0 ecoboost) prop length

    Did you get a custom prop made? Do you have any details of what you bought from who? I'm planning on using Bailey Morris but not sure what type of couplings to request other than stating the gearbox and diff in the hope they know.
  13. Brake master cylinders and balance bar

    I was told by two people to use 0.625 on the front and 0.7 on rear. See thread... You've got me worried now. Are you running the same brakes?
  14. Sport 250 (2.0 ecoboost) prop length

    This is a rebuild so diff is existing. No need to change it.
  15. Sport 250 (2.0 ecoboost) prop length

    Thank you. I'm going to need the details from sdh2903 as I'm justing a Sierra diff. I don't have a diary running but it wouldn't show much... August 2017 remove old engine and gearbox. September 2017 drop car off at PT Motorsport to make engine mounts. November 2017 decide that trying to fit an RX8 gearbox requires too much chassis modification for my liking. Find another gearbox solution and wait for engine mounts to be made. I should have the car back next week and can really start.
