I use TRS belts from Dermot in the Group 4 Escort, they have nice compact buckle assembly (doesn't stick in your internal organs when braking hard or being trussed in by your unsympathetic helper!) and nice lightweight adjusters, and all at the value for money prices you've come to expect from Mr He...

Re: Coil Spring Testing

I made a test rig using the bathroom scales and a lever (only for 4/500lb springs), it sort of worked but lets just say that set of scales was no longer required in the bathroom after that! :lol:

Re: 2000 restricters ?

I would imagine the latest aero package and a sequential box is worth far more than a few extra horsepower :D

Thanks Simon

Well done Simon and all involved on another exceptionally well organised season, having you looking after us in the paddock is very reassuring!

It would also be nice to pass on our thanks to all the marshalls and other volunteers who make our fun possible

Many thanks

Re: Silverstone GP

I'm glad to see some support for the marshalls at last, I can't believe people airing such comments on the forum, none of us could race without them. I for one think all of them deserve a medal.

Thank you marshalls all over the UK, 99.99% of us hold you in extremely high regard

Re: Croft-apology

I also have a 'land rover' tyre mark in my nomex, as the wheel was about 15 feet in the air when I came round the corner!!

I was glad to see you were ok on the next lap, hope you can get it fixed quickly :)
