« Last post by DAVID MASSEY on January 02, 2019, 12:35:33 PM »
I've spent the last couple of years clearing the decks so I can resume my TR8

resurrection.B  I am now ready to start.B  One thing I want to do is go

MegaSquirt.B  I know there are a few folks here who have done this but I think

they mostly hang out on a Facebook page.B  I am looking for how to network

with these folks.

Thanks.

Does anyone have the under hood label Part ULC1523 (pale yellow) that was on

the Federal Car or

the cream equivalent that was on the Canadian TR7 car ?  Please contact me if

you can help!

Not this year. Sorry, we ran out of time. We'll be back next year, so

please get out your "good" cameras and start taking those high

resolution, in focus glamour shots.

Is there going to be a 2019 wedge calendar offered this year? I haven't seen

any mention of it. I like to get one every year.

Re brakes: they estimated that the over all increase in weight for the 100

mile range conversion to be 30lbs, but with better weight distribution. So

kind of like braking with a full load of luggage in the boot. Most people

upgrade the brakes on old British sports cars.



Re speed:  According to the web site, theybve taken it up to 78mph, which is

more than enough for urban driving and probably comparable to what the stock

bugeye can do from the factory.



For us of course,  with the knowledge that a TR8 wedge can comfortably do

120-130mph, webd expect a little more from even a TR7 conversion.

Considering todaybs congested road networks even a road car that can safely

do 100mph would be more than enough for most people.

I would hope they replace the stock brakes as with the added OOMPH the car

probably would be brake challenged.  I would think a car like that with that

sort of get up and go would be fun to drive as long as the available " juice"

supply is more than 100 miles.



Any idea on top end speed ?

I like that the motor replaces the tranny.  Leaves lots of space for batteries

under the bonnet.
