Hi All

I posted this on the LMC site and seemed to go down well, so thought some of you would enjoy it if you have not seen it already. Make sure you can allocate some time, can be addictive......

Fascinating stuff. Their fabrication skills are off the scale.

Looking forward to seeing the car at Goodwood in June. One of the things that makes Youtube worthwhile.

Hi All

Obviously forgot to post that episode 15 was available some time ago, here is the link....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hViplB84We4

Also episode 16 is now available, interesting how they sort out the power steering pump, maybe an idea for those who have betas with them and want to not use an engine driven pump. Also interesting to see how long it takes to make the 'simple' bracket for it to be mounted....

Last year (for the first time) I went to Goodwood festival of Speed and the two Binky-fondlers were there in one of the units. And in real life they are just as they are in the videos but even more entertaining. And definitely more bonkers. Fascinating blokes to chat to, very approachable and very funny.

But you probably guessed that already.

The electric power steering pump idea had already occurred to me. The only problem is whether the pressure might be too high  - I don't want feather steering with no feel at all. I don't know if reducing the voltage would reduce the pressure and allow me to vary the level of assistance to suit - or indeed have it speed sensitive!

Hi Stuart

The voltage question is possibly not the way to go, I would imagine there is some sort of pressure regulator in the unit and on some it may be adjustable to suit?

Hi Stuart

If you want electrically variable steering then a Corsa B column and a controller from Car builder Solutions will give you variable assistance. This was done on the X19 track car at the NEC 2 years ago. Of course if you have a fancy ECU controlling the engine it will have PWM outputs to vary pump speed vs whatever you choose probably wheel speed.

Bad Obsession sell Link ECUs that do things like that and they actually supplied me with one for the Volumetrico Monte.

A bit far out there for a Beta Spyder IMHO. Even I am only fitting the OE power steering with a smaller steering wheel larger tyres and negative camber at the front.

Cheers

That's not what I want to do. Hydraulic Ps would be fine but an electric pump would make packaging under the bonnet a bit easier. It can after all be put wherever I like.
