  • Snetterton trackday mon 8th ends with a bang!!!

    We had a gr8 day at snetterton on monday nice clear track quite a few laps with no one in way, huge cornering on the Yoko Ao48's, Tien coilovers & bluestuff pads. was having a ball then....................bang knock knock knock.....yep bottom end rebuild on the cards anyone got a spare engine or cheep classic as I need lots of other stuff for next years project going to rebuild this engine with a strong bottom end & baffeled sump, plus think fuel swirl pot is in order as get slight fuel starvation after certain corners once tank is under 1/2 full.

    ouch. perils of trackday driving though, it's always going to find and exploit the weak areas on any car. At least it hasn't cost you much money so far!

            Baffled sumps are an absolute MUST on sticky tyres at Snett. Best option is a dry sump like Duncan runs but you're talking mega ££££ for that! You might also want to consider use of a catch can, depending on how much was coming out of your breathers?

            I'm sure you'll be back bigger and better next time!

              Got my sump of jon, if you know a good welder piece of cake to sort it out, I agree with james catch can is a must.

                  I feel your pain mate. As above baffled sump and catch can are a must.

                    As Steve said said, a baffled sump + catch can is a must.
                    I used R888's whilst having tuition, and going into the Esses at 120mph without one soon killed my engine. Alyn @ ASP does a cheap but very effective one.
