    Pilgrim Sumo Rolling Chassis At Last!

    Couple of small videos I took today: first time firing up the Rover 3.5 I rebuilt since fitting it into the chassis and a little drive to check all was working. I cannot believe how loud it was, phone doesn't capture it. Few little niggles to sort out: throttle is sticking when running for some reason, chassis is sitting lower at front than rear, front near side wheel alignment needs adjusting and gear selection is a little tricky. Overall, very happy.

    First time ever uploading to Youtube too, so a day of firsts! Quality seems poor?

    Youtube indicating 240p video resolution - very low quality, how did you record it and upload it?

    I thing it sound beastly though - lol.

    sticking throttle, check cable run and do you have the twin return springs on throttle return?

    good stuff - well done on rebuild

    Recorded on iphone 11? not sure if i can change the quality, fine on phone?

    I only have the spring that comes as part of the ford (fiesta?) throttle cable.

    Thanks.

    See below, think i need the additional spring to pull the throttle back as you have said, the spring on the cable pushes it back but not man enough.
