Re: 7ish new new build

Looking good Evan, you have made good progress during the lockdown. Look forward to seeing it on the road looks like it will be quick! Good choice to go for a standalone, will make things much simpler when tuning.

Re: WTB: Light good brakes for cortina uprights

If you can't get outlaws I would check out Hi Spec in the UK they do bolt on options for the cortina upright with multiple options for width and piston sizing. They were my other option but went through les instead.

Re: To the track and back

There are are a few options for out there, trademe is probably still the best place to see what is out there. Being taller might be a bit of an issue, but all cars are different and some will fit and some won't, so good idea to sit in a few to what feels comfortable.

Re: To the track and back

Hi and welcome to forums.

There is many options out there depending on your budget and engineering abilities. Are you looking to build or buy? You don't need crazy horsepower to make a 7 fast and fun.

Re: Tyre pressures - Update, not an open question about what's best :-)

Thanks for the update, might have to try those pressures next time out. Wow that will be an impressive machine, I usually don't even get time to watch my videos, let alone edit them and that's just 1 camera, the multiple angles sure make it much more interesting viewing though Sent from my SM-T800 u...

Re: WTB: Light good brakes for cortina uprights

Never had a problem getting heat into my vented disc set up, pads work ok cold, but really come on after about 2 applications. Good thing about the outlaws is there is plenty of pads available (common wilwood size) and you can split them to take a spacer in the future for vented if needed. Sent from...
