    WSCC Blyton 2018 Trackday and Booking Info - 13th July 2018

    Ah right thanks Dave. That’s exactly what I was doing wrong. I’ll try again!

    WSCC Blyton 2018 Trackday and Booking Info - 13th July 2018

    Had a great time. Can’t wait for the next one. I’ve got a long way to go to learn how to drive both the car and the track but I’ll get there. I’ve got a short clip from my second session to upload but I get an error message to do with file type. How do I know what file type mine is and how would I change it on an iPhone or Mac?

    WSCC Blyton 2018 Trackday and Booking Info - 13th July 2018

    My first experience of a WSCC day out and what a fabulous day it was. Had a few teething issues but everyone was amazingly helpful and every issue was fixed to allow more time on track or even to limp home safely and the end of the day courtesy of a clothes peg . Met some great people and overall I was very impressed with the organisation of the event. Well done and big thank you to all and I’m looking forward to the next one!

    Oil cooler sizing

    Good point made here. I’ve already got the 19 row cooler now though so I’ll see how that fares. Hoping to install prior to Blyton next week.

    It’s a 92 with no ducting. Radtec radiator.

    Oil cooler sizing

    I thought hard about laminova v air/oil cooler and I’ve decided to go for an air to oil one. As my engine is similar spec to barneys I’ve gone for a 19 row item as well. I already have an oil temp gauge and that’s plumbed into the remote filter housing just before the input into the engine so should be okay. The pressure gauge is plumbed into the main gallery on the block but mounted remotely. I veered away from laminova because water temp already sees 86 on road (91 when pushing it a bit) so I thought pushing it on track plus extra load from cooling the oil may push temps up too much and cause another issue rather than sorting the existing oil one. Ive ordered a Setrab unit purely because the fittings interchangeable so I’m flexible as to where it gets plumbed into the system (-10 feed to engine and -12 from engine to tank). The mocal ones are brazed in place so can’t simply change the fittings around. Ill try and fit it next week in time for Blyton as I won’t get chance this weekend. Anyone got pics of a similar install so I can get ideas for mounting etc?

    Oil cooler sizing

    Thanks guys. Barney, how did you plumb in a dry sump system - did you just go tank to pump to cooler to filter to engine OR should it be tank to pump to filter to cooler to engine?

    Oil cooler sizing

    I’ve tried a number of searches but none of the threads I’ve found have any answers to this. How do you know what size cooler to go for in terms of matrix thickness and number of rows? Car is an XE engine, revs to 7350, 240bhp. Will get used on track and I’m seeing oil temps 110 on road use with water temps kept down to 85-90 via radtec radiator.

    Castrol gearbox oil and Zetec head gasket

    That works fine. Just done route finder and you’re about 30 mins from me so I should be able to pop out at some point tomorrow to collect from you. Would that be okay?

    QED 450V cams for C20XE

    What’s out there?
  14. jimbobtcc206

    Big thanks to Ash

    Yes it is Paul. Just been steadily tidying a few bits of it up over winter/spring. BTW just noticed the botched side panels and must point out they are a temporary stop gap until I get chance to fit the new ones.
