ENGINES / 8v engines: how quaint
« on: July 13, 2012, 03:55:30 pm »
When 16v heads are available, why waste all that time and effort on 8v heads?

 ;D

What am i missing?

Mine are 1mm bigger in and out, no point going bigger until i get a 90mm crank and can fit bigger pistons to stay within class cc limit - shrouding like has been said.

I dont think wets would have enough grip, soft yes, but too little tread on the ground. Have an email with dunlop presently enquiring about uncut wets which might be an option....

ENGINES / geared starter motors
« on: July 07, 2012, 08:30:03 am »
Sometimes my car is a swine to start. Imagine this is due to high CR. What are folks usung in race motors for starters? Is a geared one available somewhere?

Hi

Conventional wisdom suggests that Avon crossplies are the way to go, usually supersoft A15 or A39 compound. Personally i dont get on with them, but maybe thats because my car is too heavy at 950kg. Radials are better for me, but supersoft compounds are scarce. Have used michelin moulded rally slick NO2 to some success, and similar Dunlop CR311 in 'wet' X22 seems good, although i have not personally used it.

What are your experiences?

Cheers

Rob
