Friends, neighbours, and American puppets of Euro Night Wave, it's only one week until Brit/o/ has its first track meet of the year. Join us at Shakespeare County Raceway from the 8th of April to the 9th for DRAG MEET II, hosting SHITBOX CUP, the premiere drag racing series for largely standard Nissan Micras and lesser cute cars. Some of us are going down on the 7th to save missing all of Saturday's racing driving up there so feel free to join us for a lot of alcohol.
Shitbox Cup cars are up to 1.3 DOHC or 1.6 SOHC cars that are largely standard. Non-shitboxes can compete but with penalties. Current reigning champion in his "Boyota Rustlet" is rumoured to be competing with a refreshed clutch.
There will be grills like Danny and Sam available.
Also Brit general. How have you found the nice weather? Want to moan about insurance on an M5 at 19? Been crashed into by old people today?
The weather is fucking shit because it's the fucking UK you daft cunt
>up to 1.3l

Been sunny as anything in the glorious southeast It's never come up, do a Mercedes and exploit a loophole Wat kar

What is the story with the bonnet crater
Been a nice day in Notts. Passed my test on Monday and loving life so far, happy I managed to get insurance at a reasonable amount of money without a cuckbox
yeah, but it means driving halfway across the country in a shitbox with some sort of tapping from the engine (fucking hope its just the valves), on the day i get back from uni.
1.3 Ka? You can adjust the valves easy. It's a pushrod engine so they sound a little tappety but I'll bring a set of feeler gauges and we'll do the tappets at the meet if you fancy
Post an email address if you'd like to join Brit/o/ Slack chat. Easiest way to keep in the know about meets and what traps are going to be where. It can be any email address, personal, anonymous, we don't care.
yeah, got a feeler gauge a couple of days ago, just hoping it is the valves, and nothing i would have to pull the engine for. Honestly, if the rules dont ban it i might just get the train down and buy a car there, and scrap it when im done with it, so i dont have to fuck about with tax/insurance
What dates are the USC meet? I might be able to make that one
Idk if shakeys will be very happy about you running a car that isn't taxed or insured, but I guess if it's MOT'd they can't be too upset.
Tapping or deep knocking
tapping. the oil level looked good, but im going to refill it anyway. it probably is just the valves, they need adjusting every 10k or so, though desu it might be a bit loud to be valves.
Dolomite has two inlet runners from each SU carb, what happens if i weld a balance pipe between the two inlet "manifolds"? Surely it'd run far better
Scaffold pole should do the trick
Why cant you Brits keep a thread up for longer than few hours?
We start them at 11pm or so.
So how fast can the Dolomite go?
Why would the Dolomite go fast? I took it to 70 once but I try to cruise around 50-55 cause it has 4 gears and noisy big ends/mains
They literally have cars racing which aren't Street legal, they just don't want you fucking around on site, they don't give a shit what you do outside
True. Is it a different scrutineering process?
Is it leaking fluids? Nope! Welcome aboard!
hit a child
NW europe here. Hope you have a nice meet and lots of fun! Don't forget to beat to the trap
Ty bby. Come down if you have nowt on at the weekend and fancy seeing what the crowds like before LARGE MEET at USC
How much is insurance on an old micra or Starlet? Might buy one for a cheap runabout
I bought it like that but a new bonnet be about £20
k11 micra is insurance group 11. mine still costs fuckloads to insure because i had my licence less than a year. im thinking about selling it and getting a 1.6 capri since it costs around the same to insure.
Starlet a shit Micra a best come to Wales not online and see what happens
Are there going to be any "white people"there?
how long you had your licence for? shit gets a lot cheaper after 1 year, might just be worth waiting until then
I've had my license for 3 years and not much change in the price area
The Based Purple God will not die, it is immortal.
They literally open the bay, look to see it's not a box of chickens or small children. If it goes vroom it's bonza.
The scrutineering is nothing on road rallies, y'know, where they actually check things.
They checked my frunk mate
Only because they want to empty your car as much as possible to give your shitty clutch a chance in your Toyota coffin
Sorry lads, going to GTI Springfest at Pod with some normies. Still down for USC though.
what you driving? Ive just had mine go over the 1 year mark and its gone down by between 1/3 - 1/4, have you tried price comaprison sites/sticking a parent/grandparent on your insurance?
>letting a thug keep threads alive
I wanna see that gti at pod man
I'm very tempted to come to USC now. It does look like some cheeky fun desu
Even if you dont camp with us and go on your own or with your mates/local club you're all very welcome to join us in drunken/sober antics and trap heckling in the xxx tent
Pic related will be there for everyone with their grownup cars to laugh at
Slagposting is haram traps only
pretty cool car desu, you done anything to the engine?
421 manifold, 2" mani back exhaust, cold (hot) air intake that i need to sort out. Currently on the lookout for an almera as a donor car for the ga16de since im running a cg13de. It's got pulsar brakes and apex'i coilovers on so its gonna be a nice lil 120hp NA shitter when im done
