Re: Hewland Mk9 Gear oil ?????????????

GL4 and GL5 have similar anti scuffing additives. The higher the number the better the grade. For our short 15 min races I would use a lighter, 75w fully synthetic. You can get it quite cheaply on eBay in 25 litre drums. If you change that on a regular basis, say every two/three races you will be su...

Re: Dry Break Fuel connectors

I took Douglas to mean 2010.

I have attended MSA C of C and Steward seminars for licensed officials in the last four weeks and from the presentations at those I can say it does not apply to 2009 other than for 'new build'.

We are neither British nor MSA titled, we are MSA sanctioned.

Ah those were the days. Two fuel tanks, start the Morris 8 Series E on petrol and then switch over to TVO 'borrowed' from the farm next door.

Long live the Esso Blee Dooler!

Re: MSA Blue Book correction - Fuel sampling

The jist is, always finish a race with 3 litres of fuel onboard. If you have less, then it's not the end of the world, but will make it easier if you get tested. Worry about the actual testing procedure if you get asked. Which you won't be. Unless you make a habit of breaking mirrors. Now that F3 e...

Re: Croft loses noise appeal.

The claimants are the ex wife of the current owner of Croft and her parents. Does that put a different spin on it?

Why couldn't she just cut the sleeves off his Armani suits, flush his Chateau Plonk 1947 down the toilet or trash his Porsche as most ex wives would do?
