Re: Recommend me a tow car...

So in my case I may be able to use the wife’s X1 which has a brakes towing of 2000kg.So provided I pass my b&e and my trailer is 500kg I should be okay with this setup?

Re: Recommend me a tow car...

I have no issue taking the test...yes I need to :)

But after taking the test I can tow a combined weight of 4.3 tones?

Re: Recommend me a tow car...

Sorry I am still confused

Mk1 sorento weighs 2T
Max tow is 2.8T(2003 titan)

Trailer 0.8t
Rx8 1.5t

Total weight is 2T+1.5T+0.8T= 4.3T which is over the max tow of the Kia?

Thanks

Re: Recommend me a tow car...

I have been thinking the same but it’s tough to figure out. On a normal license I think the weight of the car+trailer+track car has to be under 3.5kg?

With the bongo+trailer+Rx8 whats your weight?

WANTED - Upgraded Exhasut Manifold 231

Swapping my engine out looking to upgrade exhaust manifold, but new ones from RB are very expensive. Wondering if anyone is selling a second hand one.

Re: SPA 13/10/2019 Javelin

For those that have been, what’s the rest like on long distance? How much did you spend on fuel to get there and back?

Re: After track day lots of grinding!

Good to hear, fitted my brakes last night but need advice on bleeding, do I only need to bleed from one of the nipples? Or on both sides per side?

Car has been without front for a while but no leakage in fluid, so will I need to bleed tears as well?

Cheers
