  5. Re bmw I have the listerine m3e30 vic lee car so this car was on my shopping list (of course for the right money) the shell was very similar to a matter shell if not a matter shel basically it was a rolling shell with running gear with the right dog leg getrag gearbox but all other bits missing it wasn't bad money if you could fine some history (I did think there would be some because of the build centre locks and air jacks on it) but it came up before the csi group a I decided to keep my money for that car in the end I got neither but think you are right not a bad price

  10. What fuel do the Touring cars use?

    Hi We used a race fuel that is controlled its a 102 octane I think in the day they used a bigger octane than us I think it was 107/9 But stand to be corrected You can use tesco 99 and put in a octane booster for testing to keep costs down Ian
  11. Zytek Engine Management

    Hi Carl I have the same unit in my bmw and gave it to Andy I agree with jim the cost of these engines now you need to do all you can to protect them. A newer Ecu will give you a lot more information so you can make better decisions on race day not to go quicker but to see if there is any small engine problems which may turn into big ones Also I could only find one person to service the Zytec unit in the uk we had an over fuelling problem which was washing the bores. It took weeks to try and sort it out we fitted a newer Ecu it took half a day to get the car right We will be fitting a newer Ecu to Djr 2 so we can get feed back from the engine as we want the engine to last the season
  12. Group A RS500 (sold)

    Hi All, We are selling our Group A RS500. We will take part exchanges, up or down, for road, race or GT cars. You can contact us through our website www.prospect.uk.com. Will take offers, POA. This Jolly Club Imberti RS500 was built in early 1988 after 3 shells and parts were bought from Ford Motorsport and Eggenberger to prepare the car for the 1988 European touring car championship. The car has everything you would expect from any racing RS500 Cosworth including all original Group A parts. This car has a perfect pedigree in everyway as it was put in a heated workshop after its last race. To prove this further the car also comes with an original FIA logbook and documentation of the races she competed in. This car was ran by Mr Imberti and Jolly Club Bergamo who were famous for running fiat owned cars such as Lancia’s wrc intergrale, Lancia 037 and many many factory Alfa Romeo’s. The Car is eligible for the hugely popular Fiji supertoruing car series racing with the HSCC at the Silverstone classic and gold cup allowing you to race this great car competitively all season. It will be arriving in the UK in early 2014 fresh from receiving a full engine overhaul. In addition to this we also have a FULL spares package including all Grp A parts, please contact us with your requirements and we can get back to you with a price for this. - Ian

  16. Group A Dry Break Fuel Holes

    Hi ben The fuel fillers should be bigger than the hole so make up a template from paper or card board mark where you want the hole to be then you can either use a hole saw or drill a hole and hand cut or drill lots of holes and hand finish with a file it doesn't have to be perfect because if you have the right fillers they will cover your work it's not a big job paul has some of the fuel fillers for my car maybe he can put up a photo of them if you don't already have some so you can see what to get Ian
  17. Think I better get saving lol

    Hi rich yes that was max we had a 5th gear issue at oulton park so paul asked us along to show the Imberti car and said would we bring the bmw as well, which was great for us to shake the bmw down before the silverstone classic unfortunately we still had the issue so the gearbox will have to come out to be rebuilt Paul and I spoke last night and we are trying to get Djr 2 ready for next years owners club so it can be with Andys beautiful djr1 car. we have decided to put 2 seats in djr2 so we can take passenger rides there is a video of max in the bmw doing his qualifying lap at thruxton on the web site www.prospect.uk.com events and on our Facebook you can see how hard the gearbox gets worked but they are built for it ian

  20. Think I better get saving lol

    Hi 500rs although max has lots of servicing work he is short of stock at the moment it's very hard to find good cars at the right price ......... So just put some of my cars on the web site so as not to make the sales side look so empty that's why they are big numbers as I don't really want to sell them aston djr2 bmw all others are for sale sorry if it's been a bit misleading ian
