Carcadia Cars/Coffee

Post by nismou20 » Sun Aug 26, 2018 3:39 pm

Met up with Ray Lim, Peter, Emi, (sorry if I misspelled your name) and a father and son team Alex and Noah. Emi has the dark green Ztec swapped roadster. Having a good time talking shop for nearly 4 hours. I was really pleased with some mods I applied to the SU carbs yesterday and driving it today. Thinning the spindle shaft really does make a noticeable difference for the better and the RA needles rock! Yet to test out the newly ground damper/piston. Also found some Orings to reduce vacuum leaks at the shaft ends. They are working but eventually I will swap them to Viton Orings.

Thanks for the write up,Tom. It’s the most roadsters I’ve seen at this meet. Looking forward to seeing more roadsters in my neck-of-the-woods.
