  1. Thanks, to be honest the shift lights are set conservatively...so it'd go higher if you wanted.
  2. Thanks both, hope 2019 is a great year for you guys.
  3. Am unsure if editing a topic bumps it up again, so "bump". Happy 2019 all
  4. Thanks Adam, really kind

    Best small (led?) headlights

    Thanks Mark. It's not a stricter test (as far as I know), it's a less lenient tester. Sounds like I need to go and find/ buy a set of 5.75 lamps.

    Dominators they are. Yes, the smaller the better. It sounds like nobody knows of a small set of headlights that are MOT compatible - is that true?

    Best small (led?) headlights

    Merry xmas all. I currently have 4" headlights on my for sale car. The local MOT station has applied a more rigorous test on those lights, so now I only have a daytime MOT. I'm not interested in a more lenient MOT test location because I want to resolve the problem, not pass it on to the ultimate buyer of the car. So, if cost was not an issue, what would be the best, guaranteed MOT-proof, headlights that could be bought?
  8. I'd forgotten what a faff the blue book is, but having looked, I can't see anything here... https://www.msauk.org/assets/153191commonregulationsforcompetitorssafetyk.pdf ...that would invalidate the cage Happy to be corrected.
  9. Ta both - been repowder coated since last competition - no sticker.
  10. Hi all, the car in the advert was last sprinted/ hillclimbed 7 years ago. Does anyone currently competing know if a "Caged full T45 tubing roll cage" is currently eligible or ineligible? Is anyone running the same/ highly similar setup? forum.wscc.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic/113913-184bhp-westfield-16na-road-legal/
  11. I have a 6" diameter SBD carbon silencer, can't remember the inner tube dimension. You can tell how little I get to use the car these days, because the last exhaust repack I did was winter 2006/ 2007. Whether it's cause and effect, I don't know - but the silencer is now blowing slightly at the front, so whether I keep the car or sell it, It'll need a repack. 10 years ago, I called an aeronautical company who's name I can't remember because they could supply material that was better than E-glass/ Basalt/ Acoustafil/ whatever else was available at that time. I gave them the can dimensions, discussed the requirements and they sent me a perfectly fitting mandril-wound repack kit. I removed the can from the car, removed the old from the inside, aligned inner tube with mandril, pushed gently and slid the repack onto the inner tube - perfect fit. I slid the carbon back on - perfect fit. Refitted the end caps, put the whole thing back on the car - significant difference heard, neighbours less upset, all good then. Confused, though, I phoned the company, "err hello, thanks for the excellent product, I was expecting to pay £X, but I have no invoice?" to which they replied, "No problem sir, we gave the job to an apprentice and used an off-cut from <<insert large plane manufacturer name>>, there's no charge." Many thanks I thought and said - bonus Anyway, fast forward a decade and am trying to short cut the garage-based-paperwork/ web research process by tapping up the wealth of knowledge that is the WSCC, regards the following questions: - 1) Has anyone dealt with such a company recently and if yes, have you got contact details? as last time, happy to pay for the right outcome 2) What's the current best repacking material/ technique for a steel inner/ carbon outer silencer?
