Thanks for arranging, but, sorry, I won't be there principally because of the travel distance involved, time of year & other commitments.

Thanks Pilgrim Motorsport and Dixon - now that I have finally sorted my engine out I am planning on getting down to the factory on the 23rd - all things being equal (ie it's not raining!) so hopefully I'll see you all there.
Is anyone else planning on going?

Nicola from Pilgrim Motorsports has reached out woth som meetups that they are working in:

If any of you are free on Sunday September 23rd, we are hosting cars and coffee at the factory from 0930 onwards. We would love to see you and your cars, and have a general catch-up. The Sadcase car Club will be joining us, as we were approached by the chairman regarding a factory tour and having attended some of their meetings have found them to be a great bunch (they have over 1200 members) It should be a good pre-run to a regular event, tea, coffee and donuts will be served.
 
Parking will be in the Mackley Carpark , which is on the righthand side as you turn into the Estate.
 
AMER-CAR-NA Horsham 30th September
This is a great event, music ,cars and food! We are co-sponsoring this event. If you would like to join us with your cars, please do let us know. We have an allotted space in the park and we would love you to join the line-up.
 
Lancing Car Show Sunday 14th October- this event has grown considerably in the last few years.
 
Please let us know if you want to join the line up in Horsham as we need to book your car in. We hope to see you all at any of the above.

Hi Ian,  Thanks for your prompt reply.  At IVA it weighed about 950kg & now fully built + laden it'll weigh more like 975kg I would think. Also, it was corner weighted a couple of years ago so that may give me a more accurate weight (if I can find the paperwork).  I'll certainly look at the tyre website - I didn't realise that may be of help.

Hi Roger - do you know how much your 3000 weighs? That's the starting point. Then comes the footprint and then the maths!
20psi sounds about right - maybe 18 or 22 but it's going to be around that. Formula 1 car tyres are run at a minimum of around the 19psi mark (2017 - I can't find this years minimum dictated by Pirelli) which to my mind is pretty high considering the tyres footprint - generally the wider the lower psi. I have no idea how much your 3000 weighs. The Marina based Bulldogs are said to weigh 600 and 650 Kgs depending on engine, the Sumo around 1250Kgs so I would hazard a guess that the 3000 is something in between. May be worth a trip to your local weigh bridge. Then have a look on the tyre manufacturers website and find the footprint of your tyres.
Have fun with that one!

May I also interject (if you pardon the word) here because I've been wondering what pressure I should have on my 3000 and coupling  this with the suspension set-up - I've been finding it too bouncy but after adjusting the shockers it has improved a bit.  Currently, the pressures are at 20 all round but would like to set them at their optimum, if possible???

Thanks for that Nigel - I have always believed my theory was correct and it is good to know that somebody else has come to the same correct conclusion - and with manufacturers confirmation. By the way I have never had any sealing or deflation problems.

When I first put my car on the road I emailed the tyre manufacturer to check the pressure, they advised me that my car tires were for a lot heavier car and I should run12 on the front and 16 at the rear but said I may have problems with sealing at these pressures and run them around 20.
