    2019 Trackday chat

    Andrew, unfortunately I can’t make either of those but have just booked Mallory for Friday. As you say the weather looks very good for this time of year

    Which rod ends?

    Luke, any thoughts why the standard ones are 1/2” bore and then sleeved down to 7/16”? when I changed mine a few years ago I went for the 7/16” bore but wondered why the factory hadn’t done that as standard.

    Mintex part number

    Forgot the last bit which is then to leave the brakes to cool for as long as possible.

    Mintex part number

    There is some info on the Questmead website, which I have followed or something very similar which is 3 light brakes from 30 to 0 mph then 6 steady brakes from 70 to 30 mph

    Mintex part number

    Interesting that several have mentioned squealing problems with Mintex M1144. I have been using them for several years during thousands of road miles and hundreds of track day miles and never had one squeal! (From the pads that is ) Not sure if it is a factor but I have AP 4 pot calipers and always use ATE plastilube brake grease rather than copper slip etc.

    Raceline Wet Sump VDO Oil Temp Sender Size?

    Hi Andy, it was just a standard VDO sensor with M10 thread to suit a 52mm VDO gauge. It was a couple of years ago but I think I got them both from Demon Tweeks. Easy to fit and has worked well since.

    A delayed video from me, trying hard to keep up with Andrew's car from around 1:40 but not succeeding very well

    Breakdown cover? AA alternatives?

    I'm also looking for new breakdown having used AA for many years but with increasing premium costs. I saw that GEM have come out top in AutoExpress reviews for several years running.
  12. Many thanks for all those who organised today's track day. The briefing was good and concise, the weather was good, great company and overall I had a great time! Thanks also to Adam for his help with my set up. Hope all goes well for the sprint weekend. Steve

    Rear Springs 175 Lb/in - DISPOSED

    Ok, no problem.
  14. Oily Steve


    Is that to ensure that the 'hot' pressures are about the same for dry and wet conditions i.e. the tyre pressures will increase more in the dry than the wet?

    Rear Springs 175 Lb/in - DISPOSED

    The inner diameter is approx 2" so they should be for the 1.9 size. If you want to try them let me know. Steve
