Hello Gazza, Will the pedal box cover fit a tiger cat? If so would you be willing to post the item?

Many thanks

Tony

Hi Gaza, have you got any pics of the front pads? Funnily enough needed a set of front urgently yesterday as one of the front calipers stuck while on a track day at Donington which wrecked the pad. Want to see how much wear they have and make sure they are the same yellow pads as are fitted to my hispec calipers!

Hi Andy,

Please see pictures below for the yellow stuff brake pads.

I will weigh the brake pads to get a idea of postage or use Hermes which ever is the cheapest.

Best Regards,

Gazza

Thanks Gazza, look like the same as I have fitted. Where did you get them from out of interest?

They are from Tiger Racing, these are the brakes they advised people to use but I found they were not aggressive enough for me when racing were I wanted to brake late.

I had previously been using 15" wheels with Tarox 6 pot brakes but after I fitted 13" wheels to loose weight from the car I also had to change the calipers to a 4 pot Hispec set up.

Over the last few years while racing the car I have been concentrating on making the car lighter, handling, and brakes to try and keep up with Caterham cars.

I have take perhaps 100 + kgs out of the car plus improved the handling and brakes.

Out of interest what brakes are you running now and how much of the weight saving do you think comes from changing the wheel size? I’m running 15” Team Dynamics wheels at the moment with the hi-spec 4 pots that you were probably running and even though I’m only doing track days I’d be interested in reducing the weight on the car.

Loosing weight off the car is a cheaper way of increasing performance and also getting the car to handle.

By fitting smaller wheels / tyres you are reducing the both the weight of the wheel and tyre plus it is un-sprung weight which means that the damper no longer has to work as hard.

The wide track kit that has been developed by Siltech Racing increases the width of the front wheels so they are the same as the rear of the car on a R6 / 10 and reduces the weight by some +/- 25kg the positive is that the Khumo tyres that I now use maintain a constant contact patch even through the corners so there are no big sheets of rubber coming off the tyres and they are also maintaining a even temperature across the tyre.

Moving from 15" wheels and tyres to 13" will save you some +/- 1.5 kg per corner which is 6kg if you go down the Siltech Racing route that is another 25kg and if you then modify the steering column as I have done that is another 5kg that you can remove from the overall car weight.

If you use this formula as a guide 1000 divided by weight of car times the bhp = power to weight

So if you have a Tiger R6 with a standard Zetec - 1000 / 630 = 1.587 x 170bhp = 269.84 bhp per tonne

Modified Tiger R6 with weight reduction - 1000 / 595 = 1.680 x 170bhp = 285.71 bhp per tonne   16.84 bhp per tonne increase it doesnt sound a lot but that is 35 kg that you no longer need to accelerate out of a corner or stop when braking into a corner.

I am now using brake pads made by Hawk, if you are interested the dealer is Cambridge Motorsport, the are a carbon metallic compound and are very aggressive and will wear the disc's but I view these as a consumable items.

Hi Mikaelnordin,

I had to contact Tiger Racing as the ET is not shown on the wheels and they are the ones that they supply and fit to their car.

The Pro Race wheels are 7" x 13" - ET23 and a Ford 108 fit

Gazza
