|Click HERE for photos of my 1/10 scale RC Europa.
It's based on a Tamiya F201 4WD chassis.
And HERE to see my Caterham 7 model. It was
a blast to build. I guess I have a thing for small cars.
And while we're at it, HERE for my pre-assembled
Sunstar VW Bus.
|The Lump. Stock S2 engine. Renault R16 factory modified to Lotus specs.
1565cc 4 cylinder. 10.25/1 compression ratio. Lotus spec cam and
ignition timing. I swapped the two barrel Solex for a similar Weber 28/36DCD carb.
Four speed transaxle. 90 bhp on a good day. Power to weight ratio about 14/1.
Exceptionally reliable. Still running strong with nearly 100,000 miles on the clock!
|I highly recommend Speed Bleeders.
They make brake bleeding a simple one person job.
I used the SB3824L on the front and
SB3824HD on the rear.
clutch pedal effort on my S2 has always seemed a bit high, compared the
effort associated with the other controls, steering, brake, gas and
shifting. It doesn't affect the driving experience much, but I'm always
trying to make improvements.
After racking my brain for ways to modify the cable system back at the clutch, I ended up (for now) just putting an extension on the pedal itself. It makes a bit of a difference. But looking for a better non-hydraulic solution.
