Well i thought i would add a project thread here, as my car has kind of turned into a project, even though i didnt neccessarily intend it to!!

Ive been using my Rallye rally car for a couple of years now. When i put her away after the summer last year i thought it was time to freshen it up with some new mods!

As it is, it has a fairly standard engine, with some phase 1 newman cams i believe. The engine was freshened up just before i got it.

It runs a 205 box, with quaife gear set, and Kaaz LSD. Since owning it ive fitted a bigger rear anti roll bar, along with some Peugeotsport 23mm torsion bars. The suspension mods were actually done half way through last year.

This is what i looked like when i first started using it.



Since then its been all over the country, even being spotted by some members in Blackpool this time last year. Its been to wales and my local areas too, and last year spent most of its time in Belgium.

A couple of action shots before the progress pics!









So since its been laid up i thought i would improve the gear selection process! I got on the phone o Colin Satchel, and ended up getting his 'satchshift' in kit form, to fit myself. Easiest way as he is the opposite side of the country!





That was interesting to fit! lol.

The other major mod that is going on is the new engine. High compression beauty, with a fully 'Kent' equipped head, with their valves springs,retainers, solid lifters and PT84's. This was being worked and built just lately and came back today! I will get some pictures when i get it out of the box again.

It will be running 11.8:1 c/r, and jenvey bodies. Powered by an Omex 600.

So not many other pics at the moment, but they will come as the rest of the engine fits together!

Yes it is quite a bump there at woodbridge! I went to do that event as its about 15 mins from my front door, but its so damn hard on tyres!!

And yes, it survived the ditch incident, although considering that happened only 11 days before we headed back across to belgium, the old man pulled one out of the bag straightening it!

Here is a video of a slightly more succesful stage the event after it went off. I was somewhat cautious on this event though as i dont think id have been popular with the old man had he got more straightening work to do...

Sound is shit as the mic was buggered at the time.

Progress stalled somewhat for a while here, whilst i was gathering engine parts, getting some machining done, and generally trying to find the time to do everything!

Anyway, with the first rally im doing this year at the end of May, i thought its about time i started putting all my parts together!

So this is what i managed to do today...

As this thready seemed to stall somewhat abruptly about a year ago, i thought i might put up a few bits and pieces i have done since.

More for my own amusement than anything going by the lack of views! lol.

Anyway, as my gearbox gave up on me last year, i thought it was time for a change. So i got myself a nice Helix push clutch, mated to a nicely machined flywheel.



So rather than go for something tempremental, i thought id get myself a nice shiny brand new, Peugeot Sport 6 speed Dog Box. So this mated nicely to the new clutch setup... And combined with the Satchshift i had already put into the car, it combines for one of the most amazing shifting experiences ever...




Whilst i was waiting for that to arrive, i realised i am a sucker for a billy bargain. I realised i needed some better braking power, so dipped into the emergency parts fund and snapped these lovelies up. And yes, they cleaned up spotlessly...



That all kept me happy up until the other day when i realised i needed a better ride. So thought it would be rude not to take these off someones hands for what i considered a pretty good price Wink A pair of large tube Proflex dampers, with modified hubs and top mounts included. Now all i need to do is chase the courier up, and find out where the 3rd parcel got to that contains the matching rear shocks!






Thats where it is at the moment, the only thing lacking now is my ability to actually pilot the damn thing. But im sure if it stays in one piece then one day il get the hang of it!

It's even shorter than the 5 speed infact. I had a 5 speed BE3 in before this and this doesn't poke towards the wheel as much as the 5 speed did.

No idea how they fit it all in tho! Lol. And it cost nigh on 6 months wage!

It is in the car and I've had it in for the last 3 rallies I've done. Been having issues elsewhere tho! Had the plastic clip on the clutch cable that goes over the pedal snap meaning an early end. Then last time out the clutch packed up. That was down to stupidity in my part rather than any fault of the cars.

Just putting the finishing touches to it this weekend as back to Belgium Monday ready for action Wednesday.

I have a couple of videos Il try and get up although they don't hide the poor driving!

I seriously hope the bloody French post office finds the parcel with the rear Proflex dampers in it. I was intending to for them thus weekend! Grrr.

Didn't realise you could still buy a be3 6 speed peugeot dog box? How much do you earn each month? LOL

Do you get any schematic diagrams with it, or are there any online? Be interested to see if its the same as my 5 speed ones.

The Sadev boxes also put 6 gears into a 5 speed casing, must be quite thin gears!

I never even bothered looking for videos after that performance! I think i have learnt to slow down next time i have a flat tyre on the front again...

Acd welshy is pretty much right, bent wishbone and both wings have a small(ish) dent on the front of them.

How i got so close to that pylon and only a quick glance of it on the bodywork is beyond me.. All it really did was take the wheel back, and it would have missed the wheel if it wasnt on a left hand lock!


As it is though the bent wishbone was a pretty good excuse to get some tubular bones and the appropriate front anti roll bar to go with them.

Although if my luck doesnt change some time soon me and the car shall be parting company.

Can you post up some pics of how the satchshift works at the gearbox end? All I've ever seen is the arrangement inside the car. Also, could you PM me some details of price etc. for the dogbox? Thanks in advance Smile

look at the 205 kit on KAM racing, it'll be very similar (not the off car pic though, as that's of the 106/saxo kit)
