More drips

Checking the TVR a day after parking it in the garage, there were a few new drips on the piece of white paper, and a small amount of coolant was visible running down the radiator. When I returned to the car after a week, there had been more drips, so 1/2 the paper was damp, … Read more

Wash and drive

Having bought an immaculately clean car from TrackVRoad, we had clocked up 1000 winter miles without washing the car. I don’t use car washes (a bad idea on a TVR anyway), and finding a nice day to wash the car, dry the car, and then take it for a good drive on dry roads, not … Read more

CAT Driver Training – Postponed

Sadly tomorrow’s day out to CAT Driver Training has had to be postponed 🙁 We were both really looking forward to it, but after a very mild winter in which we have done 1000 miles in the TVR, it has finally turned cold and snowy. We returned home at 16:15 following a trip to the … Read more

330 miles – longest drive yet

Friday was a very long drive up to TrackVRoad for some tweaks and checks to the car, then to Central TVR (also the TVR Power Bodyshop) for a quick fix to the underside of the front splitter. The car spent its first night outside for many months, as it was parked on the driveway ready … Read more

TVR Clearance

I measured the ride height before any adjustments are made, and after 800 miles of driving since the suspension was fitted. I used a stack of DVDs, with some very thin DVDs to see what could be slid under the relevant part of the car. I then measured the height of this stack with a … Read more


A few phone calls this morning lead to progress on a few fronts. I had a chat with Chris from Centre Gravity about raising the TVR suspension, then corner weighting the car and tuning the geometry for my requirements. This was very useful, and progress will be written up here. Following some e-mails with Craig … Read more

Scrape :o(

When we bought the car, Richard at Track V Road said we would scrape the front splitter. For nearly 3 months we avoided this, until today. An innoccuous-looking driveway central stone at a relative’s house caught the underside of the front splitter. Thankfully, it didn’t catch the front, just the underside. Even so, it has … Read more

2 more drives

We have had some good weather over the Christmas break, so the TVR has been out twice more since Christmas. Once with the Targe Top off and with a friend in the passenger seat who hadn’t seen the car yet, and then once with my wife driving the 1st half, and me the second the … Read more

Warm drive

Today might have been the last sunny day before Christmas, and it has been 2 weeks since the Tamora was out. Last night was cold, and the roads salted, so we waited until mid-afternoon to give the roads a chance to dry, and for the salt to go (somewhere…). The car had been on charge, … Read more
