Fastest way I've seen to do an oil change. Never mind, these things happen from time to time.

A much less dramatic Saturday this weekend. Spent it tapping a few spanners on mine to prepare for racing next weekend. Lower shocker bolt had started to work loose and was knocking. New nut on and job done, fairly simple.

Ricardo brought his canal street coloured disco ball to change the front hubs due to some snapped studs. Obviously the chaps around his way really love screwing nuts. After some fettling the French tickler was ready to be sent out for abuse. It'll be interesting to see how Ricardo fairs on the climbs with his little Clio.

Only a quiet one this weekend, but a revelation.....I now have a working passenger window motor!!

I'd already replaced the whole assembly following it failing just before the Llys-y-fran Hillclimb a few months back.
Unfortunately the 2nd hand unit stopped working so I decided to swap the motors over from the original one where the cable snapped.

This turned out to be impossible as the whole thing is linked to the cable
But it is possibkle to unscrew the rotor so we cleaned it up, removed the oxidisation etc and now it works as it should

Cheers for the help dude, loving the luxury of a working window!!!!

Almost a full deck of Mazda's. Shame we don't have a Bongo as a service truck.

Beginning of the pre season work began today with changing springs. Over the season I’ve felt the car is too stiff and not compliant for the hill climbs. I’ve decided to soften up the rear first to get a feel for it and match at the front. First impression is the car is more compliant but possibly overall a little too stiff. Time will tell if it’s the right direction. Cheers to Ray for all the help and use of the garage, it’s really appreciated.

I have been tempted to reduce the spring rates on my KW clubsports as it does hardly any trackdays nowdays but alot more road miles. Any chance you could post the specs of the springs before and after and where you got them from? I have heard the dampers allow a fair bit of adjustment for stiffer or softer springs but no one seems to know how much.
