great video, car looks a dream to drive
Awesome vid bud, I love the fact that it's K-series power too :D

The car looks really well balanced in the handling dept :broon:
Cheers guys. In fact since that video the car has got better at handling as that was before we modified the front strut top-mounts to run more camber. She's a dream when on slicks and not too shabby on wets but you have to be careful as she can get quite hairy under braking. Also being fwd, if you don't stay committed in the corners then you're in trouble.

Looking forward now to getting the B done to have a nice contrast to drive on track.

Emeralds aren't that hard to wire in yourself as long as you have the wiring diagrams and pin references. You would need a later type Emerald to run the vvc though (if you are keeping that), I can't remember which spec, as the earlier ones couldn't cope with it iirc.

Thanks Chaz, much appreciated.

She's currently laid up for the winter feeling sorry for herself. I managed to shatter the flywheel with the immense POWAAAA that the K-series puts out ;) so we replaced that and then the brake master cylinder decided to go pop, currently looking for a replacement before she can go back on track next year.

Ok I got bored and just read the whole thread haha, wow dude..

What a project, if I was you id be mega proud of it!

Did you ever get the car weighed? I didnt see it anywhere in the thread, I saw you mentioned putting it on a weigh bridge but never see any weight figures.. I bet its well under 1000 kg isnt it..?

Awesome car though mate.. Loving the engine build, do you think you'll break the 200 BHP barrier without a turbo..?

NASP K-series over 200 BHP would be something to be really proud of.. Bet it sounds the nuts dont it!?

Haha, you must've been bored! But yeah we love the car, it's a hoot to drive and is pretty competitive on track.

Yup, can't remember the exact figure but it was just under 1000kg with no driver and topped 1000kg with my lady arse in it. We do still have glass windows with full electrics, the heater and abs still in so there is more weight we could lose.

Yup. The MGB WILL top 200 and ill be happy with 220, we shall see. The BRM has more in it and I reckon with a further remap and a refresh it could eke up to 200, but its all about the driveability and at the moment it goes really well, just lacks top-end grunt really.

Yes! Have you seen the video on YouTube? You get a good idea of the noise on that. It's what made me start changing my road BRM over to itb's, lol.

Video at Brands....

HOLD ON A MINUTE -

I've been a member on theBRM.co.uk for over four years - and this is the first I've heard of this 'lady arse' of yours . . . . it's never been mentioned by anyone before. :rofl:
