After finally (fingers crossed) solving my misfire/plug problem with the help of this forum, I took my speedster to an event in the UK called Flywheel Festival.
Its a event held on an old ww2 airstrip, with veteran, vintage and classic, cars and aeroplanes. It really is an amazing weekend. At times there will be for example a D-Type jaguar racing racing around the track while a Spitfire has a dogfight with a Messerschmitt overhead. They also had 10 ww1 triplanes and biplanes fighting it out with smoke and explosions.
Anyway for the second year I was lucky enough to be invited to demonstrate my speedster.
And I'm happy to report she didnt disgrace herself when compared to cars in her class, she was 33 seconds faster than a 1910 overland speedster and only 7 seconds slower than the 10 litre 1914 aero-engined Fafnir Hall-Scott Special! (big white one)
Anyway some photos for you.
And lastly a onboard video of one of my laps.
Wow! Great photos and video, Jeremy. You represented the Model T community well on the track. Thanks for posting. Joe
Just Thank You. That was great, I truly enjoyed riding along with you.
Looked like a lot of fun! Thanks for posting
Thanks for the picture show and video Jeremy! I like them all. And congratulations!
Runs great! Does it have a lot of go fast stuff under the hood?
WHEEEEEEE DOGGIE! You were getting after it on the track.
Please post pics of what you've got under the hood!
Here are some of the stills in forum file size.
Sorry about the missing ones. They were huge files for relatively small photos. Getting them down to 250 KB made them too tiny.
Good show. Real car! Reason for 15million sales! Thanks for photos.
Wow! Great pictures and video(s). Did I hear some tire squeal on the second lap? Get 'er Done!
Thank you Steve!
I tried lots of things and couldn't get it to work.
Yes you did hear the tires squealing, its taken me a long time to get the confidence in the wire wheels to push it so hard.
As for go faster bits it has:
A Marvel-Schebler carburettor.
Antique auto ranch racing cam.
Not much of an exhaust
The flywheel is half the weight of the original (without the magnets), and also balanced with the gearbox.
Ruckstell with 3-1 ratio
And probably lots of other bits I forget about.
Lookin' good Jeremy, thank you for the pics. Was there a real DJag there? Dave in Bellingham,WA, USA
Yes it was a real one, there were millions of pounds worth of cars there. 120 cars went on track, the fastest being a ex Can-Am Lola t70, and the slowest was a 1901 Toledo steam car. There were 3 Bugattis all pre 30's, one won the 1927 Picardie Grand Prix. 2 Bentleys one 3L one blower. 1929 Alfa Romeo 6C that had raced at brooklands, a few ERAs and Rileys, Astons and a couple of aero engined racers.
And me! :-)
Loved the video. I also heard a couple of squeals and wondered if that was from braking as it didn't appear that you were in a turn?
Braking and cornering, I squeal more in the corners in my other video.
Jeremy what are you running in terms of head, cam, carb, ignition?
