That was on slicks (8" wide fronts, 10" rears) but the quaife diff couldn't cope, I had forgotten how much fun it was :shock:

Thanks, it is my nearest hillclimb so I knew it pretty well. There are quite a few things I would like to do to my Morris to make it quicker, lower rear roll centre a bit, better dampers, close ratio gearbox and plate diff, make the weight distribution a bit better, it might take a bit more power then!

That video was taken in 2007 and after that I went circuit racing (in a Radical Sports racer) and learned a whole lot more about car set up, dampers and driving quickly with that.

It was a real blast from the past when I stumbled upon that video and made me really nostalgic about competing with my Morris. I would like to incorporate what I have learned circuit racing into the Morris for the final incarnation. Glad I still have it :D

Just watched the Video, Great Guns. !!! You could take me for a Passenger Ride up the Hill any time.
I could learn a thing or two.

See what you mean about the ATB Diff.

Go on give it some TLC and get it out, you know you want to really.
