    We have the gearbox and clutch out of the car at the moment. We had quite a bad oil leak on the gearbox at Silverstone after only just having it completely rebuilt .... The flywheel clutch pictures, as you can see the surface area on the flywheel is less than the friction plate so would make sense to replace the flywheel and clutch. At the moment the clutch torque rating is 721 FT/LB I have been advised by Gee at Gee Sport that runs Paul Smiths car we would be better off with a 588 FT/LB, When Gee inquired AP had no stock !! So i thing Gee it trying to get a Tilton clutch... The new suspention we have had made by Ohlins Is still a long way off of being right it all needs re valving again. We need to get the car out for some serious testing when it is all back together as we just have not had time as always waiting on some new parts. We are having to have a special socket made to take the castle nuts off to change the front wheel bearings as well. We will eventually get there !!! That is for sure....... Cheers Jim
  3. Hi Chris I hope you are well i do not think this will happen any more !! As nobody ever got back to me regarding any proper information like dates and racees. And I think time has now ran out for us this end ...... I am now looking into doing something else somewhere in Europe. Thanks Chris Kind regards Jim

How does Andy stay so calm and so relaxed all the time !!! I felt more sorry for Paul Linfoot than Andy after the off as I thought Paul was going to break down in tears !!! me and Andy was saying that today .. It was just so so sleepy out there yesterday I was glad to get back to the pits wheel spin in 5th gear !! Knowing Andy it will be fixed next week Lol.... Cheers Jim

    Hi Paul is your car running well now on them new wheels ? We started the car up you can hardly hear it running with this exhaust so we won't have any more problems at test days sounds like a standard RS500 ! My new wheels come this Thursday as well.. It has been a very long last five days at Goodwood did not get home till 12.30 last night and left there at 8.30 There was no problem leaving Goodwood it was all the people just coming back from the south coast after the weekend..... Are you going to try and make it to Donington and catch a lift up with someone ? Cheers Jim
