Below is the ‘To Do List’ for the rally car, like all rally cars they are never quite finished. So this includes the more normal pre-event prep work, but also longer time improvement and/or development work.
Oil & filter change Bolt check F/R Check CV joint Fit forest springs and increase front ride height Fit trim
Currently weight removed since initial build (where most weight is removed) : 42.118Kgs
Change wishbones after 20 events (12 done)
Car weight : June 2016 : 851 kg
Car weight following more weight removal : 850.088 Kg
Micra longer term developments :-
- New Power steering pump or alternative system like a electric Saxo pump or the Corsa electric column.
- 5.1 and a ‘proper’ box
- Uprated driveshafts
- ‘under’ wing bracing
- Source spares, to add to the collection since Micras are starting to get thin on the ground
- Heater unit
- Wiper mech
- CG3A Engines
- Spare panels
Some of you may have noticed that we have a new ‘play car’ – a MGZR 160VVC, bought for cheap price to do low key events like targa rallies and autotests etc…
This of course needs a list :-
Window film on side windows Make and fit trip meter mount, test mount and trip meter Redo wiring for fuel pump Check and paint floor Check and adjust rear drums Fix reversing lights
- ‘Swap’ one down window wiring
- Remove weight (weight saved 2.979kgs)
- handbrake surrounds
- drain spoiler?
