Please note everyone, my LOCATION is changing, the car IS coming with me. When I have moved it will change to Changed or Moved. IF you REALLY do need to know exactly where I am going to then U2U me (if I haven't U2U'd you) I have an Idea that certain family members are following my trail so, .........

Mine is clocking up the miles, done 40k plus so far. Most with SKCC on morning blats with at least one european roadtrip a year, Never broken down (shouldnt have said that) 285 hp and 300 lb feels a bit tame now.

My Luego Locost has been tucked away for a couple of years. Got it on the road in jan 2009. Its out to play this year but haven't been to any shows for 3 years maybe 4. Kids forces lack of use.
Its broken at the minute, I did a local car show a couple of weeks ago and it boiled up.

I am still out hear, was off road for a bit but back out now, i joined the southernkitcar club a few years back.
brilliant club out and about most weekend and always organiseing different trips all over the place.
we were at North Weald last Friday on a car limits day (brilliant day out group of 20 good laugh and banter just what a clubs all about).
Ive done a few mods since building mine and looking to do a few more soon.
I am looking for someone to supply a full roll cage kit or someone that can bend one up for me, but not having much luck.
anyway here is proof i am still on scene.

I have a luego locost built near the new forest and on the road since2007 bought by me a few years back,its got a stock xflow but i'm in the (slow ) process of rebuilding a 1660 with twin cam pistons to go in it which i hope to get in it in time for the spring track days,it had 1700miles on it when i got it and was a great build now 3500(not enough but i work 7days)
how are the chassis seen in the kit world?

Luego chassis was AFAIK the only locust chassis to have ever been tested by Cranfield institute , how it compares to others I can't say but when I took my IRS Luego to Procomp for a suspension set up they did mention the fact that the chassis was very good as far as alignment was concerned, far better than some others they had set up . It did however have a very slight amount of toe out at the rear which due to lack of time on the day they weren't able to correct , a couple of hours work back home using some shim stock and a pair of scissors it's now parallel. I know Hotrodbill has had problems with his rear end but I believe his chassis may be a much later chassis rather than original Luego . The Viento apparently has a 10mm discrepancy side to side . If you haven't already sorted it check out the known crush tube issue , do a search on here, and if yours is an IRS chassis check for bent rear suspension uprights, Both mine were bent but I was able to straighten them in a press then weld on a reinforcing strip , again do a search. And don't forget the crap powder coating!!!!

Check out the crush tubes before getting it set up otherwise it's a waste of time .

I have a Velocity XT too, been on the road since 2009, only been to one show some time ago. Can't remember which one of the top of my head (only went for the day.

There is/was another one on my estate earlier in the year.





Why do it the easy way, when I can do things my way!

Its now the almost the middle of 2017 and I still have mine....due its 4th mot in June and touch wood, (after blowing up 2 x S2000 engines), it should sail through. The MOT is never the issue its always the right foot and trying to extract more than the 9000rpm javascript:icon(''

Mines in bits atm - bore wear lead to leaning and an HG going so while I was in there I thought it was rude not to make the most of the 20XE/coscast weapon it's got these days- it's receiving all sorts of Omega forged loveliness and has had a few cc's added.

Head's being dressed and skimmed atm - then the bottom end is another dry assembly and back for piston machining and decking - it will be a fruity lump

Debating a sequential box but rather like the Quaife close ratio clubman set I've got atm.

BRB gotta pour some money into a pit
