Welcome to the board, that slingshot looked like a fun ride. Good luck with the new car.


I agree that does look like a fun ride !

I just noticed that the steering arm somes out the right side and looks like it is hooked up to a bell crank .. is that right ?

yep, theres a pivoting bracket in there behind the (crappy) header. The front suspension was from an Anglia. I beam, transverse leaf springs and split wishbones.  Car handled great, rear end was open, front was very stable at speed, only had drums on the rear, more than adequate for the times it ran, was very basic but so much fun.  Sold it last Nov and have not seen it run again, shame. I wish I'd got zoomies on this car before I sold it, had all stainless bends and flanges but sold it before I could do them.

hi sam, no thats my mate who crews for me .

........don't get me started on that guv support......was told by Andy Frost to drill it as per the gasket, well I guess we had the wrong gasket and put it in the wrong place, anyhoo we plugged it, spoke to him again and he told us the position is basically where the small hour hand would be at 1.30...we're accurate like that....anyway on the burnout it popped the 5/8th core plug out the speedo hole, which itself must have been a loose fit. We sorted that but as we had the tailpiece off decided to use the blanking plate you get with TCI valvebody to blank off the hole incase it was wrong. By the amount of fluid it dropped it must have been pressurised so we figured it was better to block it.


I've got the dimensions / instructions that I can take a copy for you if you like ?

Anywhere from 500 if I just go to work and 1000 depending how often i go up there, the 500 is an improvement it used to be 900 every week.. no wonder I'm always tired..

sorry Phil, I never got home last weekend, I'll be going up this weekend to fetch the van, we've started on my new workshop and I was on a digger all weekend.

Will that be to late ?

when you say digger, I take it a mechaincal digging type not a slingshot  \:D/

depends really, I'm running thr car up this weekend over Bovingdon way at the Outlaws 1/8 mile thing. Will there be any detrimental affect not having that hole in there, because at the momment it's blocked off ?
