Close Call Today

Recommended Posts

Took the red one out for a car club run today and whilst parking the car, the rubber mat, which I have to protect the carpet, worked itself up the side of the accelerator and the revs ran wild before I killed the engine's ignition.

I have now screwed the rubber mat in place into the carpet.

For some reason, the return spring on the throttle is not high, but I would worry that if I increase the tension at the throttle bodies, it would increase the wear on the Bowden cable.

Apart from the Esprit there was only one other Lotus 7 clone, but look at our Winter weather. Wow, what a lovely day.

As you say.... a close call.

virtually every car I have had has a problem with matts developing a mind of their own. The Nissan 300ZX had a good solution and the matts attached to the floor with turn screw locks. Very sensible.

As for your weather, I woudl happily swap your winter weather for summer in Devon. more rain and gale force winds today!!

Beautiful photo, Roger. Judging from the shadows I'd say it was taken, say, about 11:20 in the morning?

Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.
