Did that actually make it round the track without crashing? The car in the pic above.

I literally just watched that episode on top gear when clarkson was testing it on the tg test track lol.

finally managed to get a few jobs finished, fitted a oil cooler with sandwich plate and thermostat as last time out oil temperature was 120degC whan air temp was only 6, its not the best place to be fitted but should get some air with a bit of ducting, also fitted a new fuel pressure regulator as the cheap ebay one wouldnt hold a constant pressure.
Now just got to book another track day.

Cracking driving :thumbsup: Do you guys get to know the track from driving around them on a track day?

Driving around silverstone was difficult. much different from something like when I went out at thruxton as they had cones out and someone telling you how much and when to accelarate etc. I knew how to drive around, I just didn't know what was coming next or what speed to take anything!

Must say you did a great job of it, i'd love to get into trackdays properly, a cage and another set of wheels with some good tyres and I think i'd nearly be there tbh!

think the best thing for a new track driver is to follow someone else

Nahhhhhhh, Never follow people, gotta learn the lines and speeds of your own car yourself. I just couldn't remember what corner was next and what speed to take it, hence why I came off on one corner right at the end of my first session :laugh:

as the winter is coming and no doubt a wet weathert track day soon one of the limiting factors is traction out of slow corners so decided to fit a Limited slip diff.
Took the gearbox out last weekend and took it apart, brought a RS Escort LSD from DALSY, how hard can it be?? well as megaflea post previously highlighted its a chalange http://www.fiesta-si.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=19413&hilit=limited+slip

As megaflea highlighted i had basically the same issues with removing the 5th gear and different size bearings so his info was great help. Had a new larger bearing fitted by a transmission expert for £20 including the bearing which was well cheap, also the other bearing is a semi floating race in the case with a spring behind it to maintain pressure on the diff so no nead to shim.
Today i reassemble it, was ok bit of a panic as 5th gear synchro fell apart and couldnt get reverse to start with but managed to jiggle the selector shaft and get it back into position before putting on the 5th gear selector pin.
All seems fine now as can get all gears, now just got to put it back in car to make sure.
Great info here http://www.escortupgrades.co.uk/Escort%20Upgrades/Chapters/Transmission/Transmission%20Index.htm
A few pictures of the progress

Excellent progress. Very good driving style and lovely modifications. You're certainly building a very usable weapon. LSD's really do make a difference.

Let us know what you think of the new diff.
