  2. 4:1 CWP for Sierra 7" Diff

    Now sorted.
  3. Sierra 7" Diff Mount Bushes & Bolts ?????????

    Thanks Barry / Terry That sounds like a perfect solution !
  4. Can anyone help me ? As some will know I'm converting a live axle chassis to independent rear suspension and at present collection the parts required to do this and have two questions: 1. Are the 4 metalistic bushes for the diff mounts the same size as the std suspension metalistic bushes ? 2. The 2 long bolts that pass through those bushes and the top & bottom diff mounts, are they the original bolts used to mount the diff in a Sierra or are they bespoke to Westfields ? TIA Martin

    Terry It was 2% in my day ! Well we'll just have to agree to disagree, mine and others request is simply to try and help our novices to have a good experience. Lets hope the new rules don't do the opposite. M

    Mark We are confusing the situation now. Whilst it may not be TT's that initially put newbies off entering the speed series, once they have circumnavigated the rules and regs, spent their hard earnt on overalls, helmet, gloves, roll bar etc etc etc they must be pretty determined to finally have a go at an event. Surely after all that effort getting there we don't want to make them feel demoralised by unachievable TT's. A slight softening of TT's for the novice classes will only increase their enjoyment in a feel good kind of way and encourage them to continue. I really do not understand the SSOT's complete determination to resist this. We've used 2% softer TT score system for novices for the past few seasons why change it now ? No body is suggesting they want a novice to be able to win the championship ( as has been mentioned ) just a more realistic TT to make their experience more enjoyable, after all if they don't enjoy it they won't continue.
  8. Your Welcome Adi, don't forget to have a rummage down the back of the sofa for the engine money

    Terry, that’s what we all want, with huge interest in the 21st Birthday celebrations at Shelsley we need to get this sorted and not waste a golden opportunity to draw in a good few new competitors !

    I don’t really think it has David. It seems to me that the novice competitors want one thing and the SSOT for some reason want another. I was simply trying to point out that in my opinion the argument for not giving novices softer TT’s put forward by the SSOT does not stand up as they are prepared to run a completely separate calculation for another class.

    Hi Paul Your words above not mine, I’m simply giving my opinion. Dont get me wrong I think it’s great that we offer a class for all our mates ( no longer Westfield driving mates ) to come along and enjoy the day and have a great time. I also think the verity of cars in J adds to interest for drivers and spectators alike, it’s a good thing. With my interest in single seaters I may well end up there myself! Just seems odd to me that we can run a separate score system for J but don’t have time to do the same for the novices, make of that what you will, that’s my opinion. Martin

    Hmm, have to disagree here @Paul Morcom as the perception of a softer TT for novices, especially in their first season is a great encouragement to them. Surely encouraging novices as the life blood of the Series is worth the little extra effort that “ No other Championship offers “ after all we do it for the J classes! Just to be clear I have no problem with J having it’s own scoring system but not sure it should take priority over a Westfield class. I’m also very disappointed to see one of my favourite events slashed from our calendar. Why and what do the ssot hope to achieve by this ? My first ever Speed Series event was at very wet Wiscombe Park in 2014, I was terrified but with the help of my fellow WSCC competitors I had a brilliant weekend. I have been back every year since along with a few different WSCC competitors each time and significantly improved on my times, gutted I can’t now put all that time, money and effort to good use.
