Re: Anyone got a V8 to donate to charity?

How about a VW beetle aircooled one?

Re: Wheel/Tyre Advice

Straight line only, sorry not much idea, but if you decide to use the steering wheel and go around bends, Avon CR6 series tyres will stick like crazy and still give you a reasonable mileage before worn out

Re: Pipemax Exhaust Software

I remember I saw something at Gt40 S about this
https://www.gt40s.com/threads/tuning-hi ... ost-293680

That was one and Adam C did a fluid dynamics model.

I would be running 1.5 inch pipe for your primaries and all reading points to collectors around 17 inches long.

Re: I've got a chatty engine.

Re: Exhaust manifold temperature.

What inlet and carb are you using.
With some manifolds and 4 barrel carbs, if not set up right some cylinders could run lean and others rich.

Could give readings as you suggest

Re: Hotwire system tune resistor.

So question here!

What happens if you get a variable resistor and put it in the circuit?

1 2 3 or 4 marks on the dial for the different set resistances and then try, drive, put on rollers and see how it goes?

Or is that just looking for trouble?
