    Help with IVA 1C

    Hi, Im just filling in Form 1C and have a few questions, I have a mega S2000 1. section 4u and 4v I've put 240BHP 8500rpm and top speed 120 ? 2. 4x. Does the vehicle have one or more ECWVTA or NSSTA Certificate . I've ticked no but does it need filling out. 3. 5a. Has the vehicle been modified since being previously approved? I've ticked no but does it need filling out. 4. Section 7 refers to build evidence ? Can you upload photos if you apply online I think thats it thanks , Rich

    oil catchment tank yes or no

    Thats the ECG not used on the Westfield doesn't hurt to leave it on, you would have to make a blanking plate to remove it like this :

    Hi @CraigHew Just for Iva I’ve been told it helps the wheel self centre , everything else was off Westfield’s recommendation sheet. I will most likely change it once on the road. Although went for a test drive today totally forget to check the centrering. Rich

    Quick update, got my alignment done but no photos I was so busy I forgot, but the procedure went like this: My nephew had borrowed a decent laser alignment kit, I was sceptical at first but I have to say once I understood how it worked and the process it was fairly easy to use. Worst thing being the adjustments on the rear. Started on the rear trying to achieve 1/2 degree toe in and 3/4 camber , after about 2 hours of head scratching and me removing the wheels, bottom pin, dropping washers, losing my kit, we had the back looking good . Swapped the laser over to the front : Went for 1 degree toe in, not parallel as Westfield recommend and 1.25 Camber, much easier than the back obviously. One thing I did notice is the camber adjust on the top Ball join is noticeably different one side to the other I set the track rods equal and the wheel central. NOTE: I only cut 5mm off the rack not the 10mm recommended. Not sure what people would charge but it took us 3hrs in total, I reckon we could half that with less cups of tea and a bit more room to work , I feel like Ive done a few rounds with Mike Tyson this morning though. It was worth doing as I now understand things a little better and most importantly cheap, cost start to run away. Anyway gonna take it for a spin today just round the block, fingers crossed I can keep it on the road ! Quick unrelated question: Anyone hired a transporter, can a Westfield get up one and rough cost . Thanks, Rich

    Hi John, I have fitted one on mine with advice from others, I didn't like the idea of oil going back in the inlet + don't think it should be put on any road. I bought some braided fuel hose from car builder solutions catch can came with everything except the breather. Catch can was copied from @Thrustyjust's build .

    Some photos of the finished wing fixings, for those considering the bighead fasteners I would use as @jonjh1964 suggested nuts in front studs rear. With studs in both the radius is working against you, I had to open the holes up to 8mm even then its a struggle. Fitted some 2mm thick rubber washers under the bracket and made some 2mm thick washers for the top.I did shorten the studs but they would have been ok I reckon.

    Hi @IanK (Bagpuss) I'm not paying so I can set it how I want for now and fine tune it later, incidentally do you know what height it should be for IVA, its 140mm in the Westfield setup sheet?. Rich

    Finally got the wings fitted, decided to use the bighead fasteners as suggested, I've ordered some 5mm rubber penny washers to sit on them(Still waiting). I used standard Araldite which takes forever to set but I figured no heat when curing was good.Then I fibreglassed over the top, they seem pretty secure but i guess time will tell. Just a few photos outside as the garage is a bit restrictive (pre wings tho) Alignment on Friday feel like I'm getting there. Rich
