Re: Passed IVA

Yep! Seem to be getting conflicting info on what forms to use! Did you need to get Matt to do a cert of newness? DVLA are saying to use the V55/4 which is for new vehicles and kit cars, but appears to be based on using all new parts, which I haven't! So I think I need to use the V55/5 and the V627/1...

Re: Steering Wheel Issues

not allowed a detachable wheel for IVA I'm afraid! My wheel that I have for after IVA is fine, and that's what the dash was setup too!

Re: Steering Wheel Issues

The mounts are as per the original chassis that we got from Tim. The coloumn is held between 2 uprights behind the dash, which you can adjust in height with 3 different holes. The front of the column is then in a tube with a bolt welded to it to move it up and down. All I can think to do is to lower...

Steering Wheel Issues

Has anyone gone through IVA/SVA with a standard mini steering wheel fitted? With one fitted, I can only just get my legs under the wheel and cannot really operate the pedals correctly. My other issue is that it obscures the warning lights! Is there any way of moving the steering coloumn up? Its on t...

Re: Tim's Bias Bar

may well do. To be honest, I fiddled around with the bar when testing the brakes and found no difference in doing so! On a track it most likely shows I would expect

Re: Tim's Bias Bar

it is 3/8 UNF. My supplier sent me 5/16 UNF nuts by mistake! Planks!

Would love to put a piece of hose etc over the end, but IVA wont allow it unfortunately!

Tim's Bias Bar

Does anyone have any clue as to what thread Tim used on his own brake bias bar? Usual sizes are 3/8 or 7/16 UNF, of which it is neither!

Re: Part built stylus RT

First thing I would highly advise doing, is converting it to a flip front! Makes working in the engine bay so easy and you can remove the entire bonnet assembly in around 10 mins to get the engine out etc.

Re: brake Bias

i read an article from Merlin Motorsport after posting this and it sais exactly the same thing, that the front rod should be 3-4mm longer than the rear. At present they are equal length, hence the rears are locking out before the fronts and causing issues!

brake Bias

Has anyone fitted Tim's own brake bias peddle box assembly? If so, did the bias work ok? Put the car on brake rollers last night and the bias bar appears to be sending the brakes all over the place and you get different breaking efforts each time! Not sure i have it setup correctly possibly? Any ima...
