Re: My Puma.. Maximum Track Attack!!

Its worth removing the paint from the alloys where the wheel nuts touch seat - I've seen it happen more than once where freshly painted and torqued up wheel nuts loose once the paint softens due to heat generated on track.

Re: Rally car reshell

id be wary of making the rear beam stronger, instead of just bending the bear which is easily replaceable you will end bending the shell / bear mounting points. Ditto with front wishbones. Is it worth taking a spare rear beam on single venue type events ?

Use a hot air gun and scrapper to remove the dead rubber from your soft tyres :twisted: Keep the soft tyres for when its cold or wet. 8-)

Re: Puma 1400 Rally Build

another option is to reprofile the inner arch to remove the seam that is causing the tyre damage - think plasma cutter and welding a low profile filler back in place

Re: 2.0 Zetec Turbo - The Yella' Fella'

Good luck if your fitting teh puma specific kit from OBP. you will need to add extra bracing to stop it flexing and twisting in use and you'll need to move the seat back a long way unless you have weird ankle joints

Re: Puma 1400 Rally Build

I think FWD race cars run harder rear springs to reduce the effects of understeer by making the tail loose on corner entrance. Around 250 lbs front and 450 lbs rear for dedicated circuit car, some go over 500 on the rear along with rear tyre pressures well over 40 psi. "Sealed" surface ral...

Re: Puma 1400 Rally Build

One observation is that with the car in the air, the springs on the front are loose, ie they are no longer compressed. is yours the same and is it an issue? Just thinking that they may not be line up true after landing from a big jump. My rears came with the thin helper springs so they don't do the...

Disconnecting the battery eventually resets the KAM (Keep Alive memory) in the ECU, this stores amongst other things various tables for the ECUs adaptive fuel control and idle air strategies.

Re: Steel Blue track car project

IMHO Bump steer is probably more important on track car than a road car. Get it too far wrong and the car will feel and handle poorly and result in poor track performance. All suspension needs to travel, even on track! Why not make a cheap bump steer gauge with with dial gauge indicator and measure ...

Re: Steel Blue track car project

Lovin the mods - oh for a double garage! :clap:

Quick Q - where did you end up putting the spacer / track rod end in order to minimise bump steer over full suspension travel ?

Last Q - how do you mount the front bumper to the car now the internals have gone ?

Re: My racing puma build

I wont expect any holes in the gel coat, or air gaps between the gel coat and the fibreglass underneath :( Get some cans of filler primer from your local paint supply shop, goes on much thicker than simple primer and can be sanded back a bit.
