Lots going on right now and if honest a a bit of a blur... Dr Dave Ashford is receiving parts left right and center at present...
Exhaust... Our very own Mr Shrew has been commissioned to do something special... More on this in due course
Engine... Dry sump guys have been and measured up, they will be making all the tanks too, more on this much later
steel crank due any day, pistons, rods etc have arrived, block gone for 60thou overbore
Wheels... Image Wheels are making a one of set of 14x7 3 piece billets to replicate the Ronal pattern on the A01's
Suspension... Leda have their brief... We are looking for something which will allow easy switch between dry & wet setup... All of last years suspension is with Leda and presently being lined up for test on their dyno in order that we preserve last years dry setup.
Brakes... Here is where we have a mild challenge... I'm presently looking at whether midi lite calipers will fit inboard on the sprint, going outboard is not an option there will be a call to rally design today to pick their technical brains
Other bits and bobs... New dash layout incorporating a clubman stack tachometer is underway, new quick release boss with new omp wheel, lightening of various parts including pulleys, flywheel etc etc
I'm defiantly in the middle of a midlife crisis
