    Both I think! There doesn't appear to be much appetite for a proper sprint car that's dedicated to track use, so I thought I'd replace the gearbox with a 5 speed type 9 and maybe swap the engine for something less powerful (if I can sell the existing engine) making the car more user friendly on the road, as everyone who has shown interest in the car admires its build quality but wants to use it on the road, even driving it to trackdays....not something I'd want to do with a straight cut gearbox!!! Hopefully the change in gearbox (and possibly engine) would make the car appeal to a market.

    Yorkshire meeting, summer BBQ, 3rd July.

    Robin, Me and the boys will be in attendance as usual, but no BBQ for me, I don't want to confuse anyone trying to prepare veggie burgers on a BBQ as this is challenging! They usually just fall in bits through the grill onto the charcoal! See you tuesday

  13. For sale on behalf of my mate Justin, who whilst been a club member, isn't too keen on typing out an advert of this size! So he's left it to me..... I know this car well and whilst it's not perfect, (having been used a bit) it's in very good all round condition, with some very nice touches.

Body/Chassis: Genuine Westfield SEiW chassis in black powdercoat, with bright yellow bodywork including detachable rear arches and cycle wings.

The engine being rebuilt with new water pump, cambelt, Vernier pulleys cams, oil pump, steel rods forged pistons etc in 2016.

    From some of the comments above there seems to be an inference that the SSOT are Northern biased in there choice of venue, and that Mr Everall wants to cull events. I'm not an active SS competitor and don't know all the members of the SSOT, but if there is genuine concern about a "Northern" bias then can I suggest that "Southern" members put themselves forward to join the SSOT, in the interest of balance. As for Mr E being the harbinger of doom, I suspect it more a question of him appearing to be the most vocal SSOT member on here....... Nice to see debate on this subject and some interesting suggestions...
