Likewise Alan, was nice to chat and loved the Coupe. There's more pictures from one of the other FB pages where there's a few of your Coupe entering and leaving and I think parked up too.

I got a few showing the Coupe and the 147 when they were parked next to each other and also a sneeky peeky one of when you were leaving.

Curiously mine failed it's MOT on loose seat bolts, not exactly difficult to rectify but I hadn't noticed! Is this another coop issue to look forward to as they age?

Mardi Gras are still able to supply the Helix Organic, a great clutch but super expensive in comparison to CG kits, worth the money though as I run both the organic and paddle with high torque builds with no slippage.

I had a Helix Organic clutch that coped with my modified car. BPH was 360 but can recall the more important torque figure but was substantial. Not sure if these clutches are still available? Had an uprated CG clutch on my re-mapped Stilo 2lt diesel and it was fine, so think they are okay.

Running a manual on a hybrid isn't the best as its so progressive, as mentioned in my Whatsapp message keep your eye out for an after market boost controller, its help loads.

Good result!

Squeaky leather (not the grab handles on the head rest as they have already had felt patches added to stop them squeaking) from both front seats continue to reduce the enjoyment of the open road.

I suspect-but keep forgetting to do it- that a small section of material between the back of the chair and the seat bolster would resolve most noises. I'll also just double check the bolts.

Until then...its mickey mouse time in the car.

Regards

MM

Well there we go then, thanks both!

If you're interested, I managed to reduce the boost a bit and it doesn't slip now. Maybe it's not so borked after all

Anyway the Facebook update is linked below, it won't let me copy & paste the words.

With clutches you wanted to look at the torque rating, not BHP rating.

I think techniclutch are ones to avoid and have no idea on CG, but a paddle clutch will make the car very hard to drive in traffic.

Not much interest at 3k, so it's up for auction on eBay now. Would rather it gets sold and used instead of sat doing nothing.

I thought I had diligently removed all persistent creaks and rattles but I had a very annoying creak coming from the drivers seat. It basically only happens when the back is forced back, but was quite loud and happened over every large bump and sway of the car. Took the panels off the seat and wd40'd everything in sight that could have caused it, to no avail. Spent a couple of hours on it, scratching my head.

Finally discovered one of the front bolts that hold the seat down was slightly loose. The seat was basically moving here and rubbing near the bolt. Soon fixed it then!

The other minor issue was that the lumber support adjustment was mostly ineffective. In my investigations of the creak I took the back off and discovered the fixing that holds the adjustment wire had broken away from the seat frame on the right, meaning the wire was too loose. No way of fixing it but folded a towel and placed it behind the wire to tighten it just enough....as it tightens it forces the seat middle forward via a runner. Very simple fix and works a treat!

So afternoon well spent in all!

Thanks Burty.

I have bought couple of different flag stickers but am still undecided. I may need to temp fix them in place and sit back and ponder over a beverage...

We've had an email letting us know SpaItalia has been rescheduled to the 26th September 2021, I will attend if possible so fingers crossed.

I have another painted in flip blue - green and it regularly lives in the boot of my Coupé.

The shell comes as a 190mm wide so doesn't really suit Nitro cars. It's a bit of a tight fit on most nitros as they normally require 200mm shells.

I have my shell fitted to my old Schumacher Mi2EC racing chassis. I have also run them on the early Schumacher Mission and it is this chassis I would reccomend. They are tough and reliable and as Schumacher are a UK company, getting parts for them is really easy too. Most model shops stock parts but you can also order direct.

The original mission chassis was hugely reliable and Schumacher have recently re-launched it as the Mission 1



I just bought a Mission FT, not finished building it yet. I've never had an on road car before but there is an awesome race track not far aware so thought I would give it a go. A Coupe body would be awesome.
