    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

    Agreed that it was an excellent track day. Cadwell is an amazing track, the weather was perfect and great company

    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.
  7. 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.

    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

    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.
