Look forward to seeing some pictures.

Toby and Lisa sprint a 1.7 Turbo Puma which is VERY competitive :)
I expect they will offer advice on weight saving etc.

Hi Neil, another sprinter. In the ASWMC sprint championship we enter with, the 1.7 puma has to run against highly tuned Elises in the road going class (A2). You should be able to strip around 100 Kg of weight and still be eligible for the the same class ;) are you allowed carbon bonnet / tailgate ?

hay "proff" can you believe it, me on a forum!! wow!! cant get nothing done now for typing! hopefully get some wiring details tomorrow, hope so cant wait to get stuck in!


well you'll get more work done your Puma if you try typing with 2 fingers !:woot2:
Keep up the good work , should be a good build knowing you !
For everyones info , Neil has weighed every bit he removed ,,,it all goes in a plastic bag for weighing -no matter how small a part ! - has Linda found her bathroon scales yet ?:rolleyes: ,,,I think he's been listening to a friend of ours who is very anal about parts fitted to his hillclimb 106 ,,I think the windscreen washer bottle is a small plastic "freebee"hair conditioner bottle that you find in hotels with a pipe stuck in it !!
Here's some onboard from his 106

Hi turby, il be running to MSA rules so i should be able to run carbon fibre.ive taken 50+kg out already and havent really started yet! do you run to MSA rules as well?do you run with a roll cage? my worst job so far was removing the door bars what a job! worth it in the end as they each weighed 2.5kg! was thinkin of the dash next, its REALLY heavy,down to the metal frame work inside it i would think. but what am i saying ive LOADS to do before that!!!


Yes, I run to MSA rules and compete in some of the rounds of the ASWMC sprint championship. We run rear cage, did have a full cage fitted, but couldn't get my head with helmet inside - so it had to come out (I tried to reason with MSA to remove tiny bit of roof lining but they wouldn't have - even on the grounds of safety - stupid or what!) same went for cage door bars not allowed them as I would have had to remove a bit of door card - another safety feature lost...

Race battery, strip behind dash, remove sound insulation / deadening, underseal (another 5kg), cut out behind bumpers, door cards, seats, emission system, remove carpets, carbon bonnet / tailgate, lightweight 4 pot calipers, small lightweight discs, remove aircon, etc etc

I kept my internal door bars, a bit of door skin won't stop much in the event of a side impact.

Does make it look very clean and tidy with the paint finish.
Was your Puma not very rusty underneath?
Are your sprints on open grass/airfield type circuits?
You removed the cage for what you were doing, is it going to go back in?
searching is fruitful | I'm a sponge not a mechanic | The Wiki is cool, please do check there if stuck with a Puma problem whilst waiting for a reply | For the Puma fan this read 'The Inside Story Book' is very nice to own link coming soon
