Testing the MGB at Sandown Nov.'03....
Volunteer instructors are given approx. 45minuites free track time to test their MG's at the end of the day.
After testing the Morris Garages Group Sc MG Richard made the following evaluation:
"The car tested ok, except for my brand new Needham gearbox, jumping out of third gear.... I must say that the ratio's are a vast improvement over the STD box."
"I also had some
more oil pressure problems... With the oil pressure progressively droping
off after a few laps, so I couldn't give the car the work-out that we had
We will need to R&R the gearbox and get it repaired over Christmas, so we use this opportunity to strip the engine and re-assess the problem over the new year.
On a positive note, I was very happy with the braking, handling and the diff and clutch set-up. The engine had heeps more low down, which helps out of the corners."
The next event
is Historic Rob Roy Hillclimb
on the 30th November, where we will try some different oil and give the
car a run and see how we go.
