    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.
  2. 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

    Ok, no problem.

    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

    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

    Donington 2nd July with MSV

    Not too bad although there were several red flags, one that took awhile to sort out due to a car in the tyre wall at the top of the pit straight. Otherwise, it was perfect conditions to enjoy a dry and sunny Donington The only problem I had was running low on fuel and hadn't brought any with me because I thought I could buy fuel on the night but it wasn't open! Now looking forward to Blyton on the 13th

    Donington 2nd July with MSV

    I ran my Duratec for several years doing track days without an oil temperature gauge. When I fitted one a couple years ago I found I was up to 135C and presumably had been at that level on many occasions before but had not experienced any problems. Having said that I have now fitted a small modine cooler which has helped a little, but I was still up to 125C after several laps on Monday evening at Donington.

    You shouldn't have a problem unless things have changed. I have used them in the past and there has been a mix of cars. Enjoy Donington

    Rear Springs 175 Lb/in

    A pair of rear springs approx 225mm long and 68mm outer diameter. Measured at 175 Lb/in by Procomp. As you can see they could do with a repaint. I was going to throw them away but thought they maybe of use to someone. Open to offers and anything given I will donate to the Mind charity. Collection only please from DE23 3WR or I can bring to Shelsey Walsh on Sat 23/6 or Blyton on Fri 13/7.

    Stoneleigh thanks

    Just to add my thanks to the organising committee and all who have helped out at Stoneleigh. Unfortunately I was only able to stay for a short time on Sunday. Took this photo at approx. 11am and there were still cars arriving. I'm sure Monday will be just as good if not better!
