Running up Prescott Hillclimb on Saturday along with Steve (carrera RSR) in their Autumn Classic weekend

Steve is sampling the last round of the Newbarn Landrover sponsored B Licence class with a view to jumping in for the whole championship next year. Best wishes to him - his Turbo is a formidable machine that will look great on the hill :woohoo:

I'm running in the HRCR class - I'll be the only HRCR entrant in a car that's prepared for loose surfaces :lol:

Hopefully yes. My Rainsports are pretty decent in the wet, but I still expect to have a loose rear :whistle:

Messing about with my 84 n/A making a list for winter repairs and paint etc.

Should get it done before next weekend Goodwood porsche

Fitted a 23mm front anti roll bar and 16mm rear giving an increase of 15% over what was on there before. Sitting nice and flat when cornering so cheap upgrade with noticible change which is nice :grin:

Are you running those ARBs with any other suspension mods?

Everything is standard (shocks, wishbones, Ball joints, top mounts and other bits I've forgotten all replaced in last 12 months) apart from wishbone bushes which are poly as it worked out the same cost. Seems to work well as isn't tooth rattling but nice and tight when cornering.

Sounds similar to mine except I have Bilstein dampers. I ran a 23mm front / 16mm rear for a while but I uprated the rear to an 18mm to promote a bit more oversteer
