    I wrote an additional post yesterday but for some reason it is not here, perhaps I didn't hit the (right) button.

    I dug out the build notes and also found the 10min (0.166°) toe in so that would...

    You may well be right. Would it be possibe to take them off and get the pivot hole centres measured to see if they are correct.

    What toe values are you looking for, can't remember from my build...

    Just looking at the original post to work out what needs to be done to correct the toe (I can't offer much help getting the bolts out)

    You indicate "-0.14 and right side 0.28"

    The problem I have with this assembly is how repeatable is it.
    Even if you disassemble the individual parts and reassemble would you end up with the same values. Even tightening the upper bolts...

    That is what we’ve been doing for the last few years since we moved in. It does not work very well unfortunately.

    OK, so having checked my cars details I find they are similar to those of Ted’s Sumo, although registered in 1998 the year it f manufacture is 1980 (although does not state when in that year). Need...

    Thanks to everybody. I think I've identified a Honeywell unit which will do what I want/need. I'll keep posted on outcome.

    And looking a bit bit deeper I realise it’s “only” a thermostat, no timer function. So close!

    I’d be interested to know how you have tax exemption, mine was built 1997, so been a kit car slightly longer than yours and is on a V plate but date on log book is date registered as kit so don’t...

    Actually looking a bit deeper it seems that it's possible to use the switch wires to supply power to the unit also. Could be a winner with that one.
    Thanks again Aaron

    Hi Mark
    I think I know the kind you mean, had one on a WB boiler in my previous house, the receiver plugged into the front of the boiler, different modules were available.

    Thanks Aaron.
    From a quick look that appears it would do the job, only issue is it also appears to be mains powered on the receiver side, I may not be able to get away from that.

    Sorry guys I meant to say, I don't really want or need a phone app kind that I can control from the other side of the planet just a wireless thermostat. If I have to go that way I will but ideally...

    Not sure if it makes a masive difference, the RV8 pump has a good flow rate and would fill the filter very quickly. But why would...

    Although electric is nowhere near there for my daily driver I can see many benefits for an occasional use vehicle but don’t think is suits a Cobra, anything but a V8 just doesn’t cut it for me.

    Anybody know how/when they take the braking force figure?

    I've thought of doing something similar but the only problem with this is that it shows the force developed on each axle individually, doesn't give you any idea of what force was on the pedal so no...
