    The Lobster (88 SE Rebuild)

    They use a “sprag clutch” basically a set of ball bearings that the starter runs on within a housing that has ramped ball bearing holders so they rotate freely one way but roll up the ramps and lock on the other. If the gearbox runs backwards it will often shatter and take out a crankcase with it!

    What are your msut haves in a car ?

    Anything can be done. @chriss1455 has swapped a Zetec to a Duratec. But it can be expensive as pretty much everything needs changing. But you can sell your “bolt in package” to offset the cost.

    Technically you can post ads for yourself or another member in the club for sale section. If it’s for a friend or relative it goes in the “External adverts” area. Will move it there shortly...

    Seriously though, it’s a valid point @CosKev makes regardless of Adams ability to pirouette a car with one hand while holding a casual conversation.

    Seven 7 grill for Westfields ?

    Indeed, the 7 logo might suit a pre-lit, which is after all a “Westfield 7” - but I prefer the look of my car to a Caterham anyway, so putting a 7 on it just wouldn’t look right to me at all. But it’s all about personal choice- and let’s face it, our cars get personalised way more than Caterhams ever do!

    What are your msut haves in a car ?

    No such thing really. Other than the absolute minimum requirement to get it driving then it all comes down to want vs afford For me the basic criteria changed as I started to use the car. The initial build turned out to be pretty much exactly what I wanted and so had all of the “must haves” at that point in time. But in a matter of three years it’s gone through a lot of changes - see pics but under the skin it has a new crate engine, BGH gearbox, ECU, atb diff, uprights, widetrack wishbones, AIM dash, custom steering column, arb’s and alloy radiator as well as the cage and V8 bonnet. (V is for vanity ) So surely now I have my ideal car - and yet still on the current “must have” list is 13” wheels and sticky tyres!

    Seven 7 grill for Westfields ?

    I like the 7 logo. But not on a Westfield - it seems a bit “not quite right”.

    Try to twist the can about its longitudinal axis. Loosen the clamps to allow this.
