Racing Rover SD1,Third outing
Rover Vitesse 3500 V8.Competing in "youngtimer challenge" club racing in
Denmark.1200 Kg.guessing circa 220 HP.This time trying to follow BMW E36 M3
3 litre with some succes.However the waterpump stops after failure of
alternatorbelt and session is disscontiniued.Day ended later as fuelpump
gave up.Uprating since last outing was finetuning of springheight and
balance (sorting cornerweight with a ruler !!!) and installation of
"whiteline rear stabilizer".This transformed the car into a more
predictable friend softly changing from under to oversteer in a manner that
is very usable.Tracktimes fell with more than a second.
Rover 820 Vitesse
My Vittese named Mojay at Torque of the devil uxbridge. She pulled 185.2
bhp with 11psi Boost and 176 lbs/ft
torque. given the age of her she did quite well :) At the moment she is
stock but that will change ;)
Rear Suspension on the Seven
Finished fabbing up the rear suspension componentbs on the Seven today.
Turned out really well, and I think having a good jig was a huge influence
on the quality. i got damned lucky since I really just threw a guess at
the dimensions and measurements for the rear pickups, and they worked like
a champ, almost no angular distortion as it travels up and down. Very
excited about that.
