Title: Aurel - 1 complete set of new unused competition springs for sale
Post by: chriswgawne on 06 April, 2020, 10:56:32 AM
I have 2 front and 2 rear new, unused coil springs for irs B20's which are stiffer and slightly shorter than standard.
These are a spare set I had made for my 3rd Series B20 which I successfully raced for many years and are to a spec provided by a well known retired B20 racer and also used today by the Kennedys.
The wire diameter is slightly increased from standard and the result is that the car sits slightly lower and the ride is slightly stiffer but not enough to make the ride uncomfortable on the road. The roadholding and ride on a circuit at speed is hugely improved by this modification.

There's a photo of me in an edition of Motor Sport with the car rolling like a van.  Jason and Louise corner flat.

Hello David, 'rolling like a van'. That reminds me of being a passenger in your Aurelia around Goodwood. Alarming roll! The springs being offered sound good.

Richard - were you there for brake fade or is my memory playing tricks?  A less used line sufficed.

It was the LMC track day around 1995?? I don't remember any brake fade? It was around that time when an Aurelia could still be seen in Lewisham, parked in the street (unlocked?) I expect the trackday photographers have some pictures of the degree of roll at the chicane?

I didn't lock it as I didn't want a window broken.  I don't think Simon locked it as a student in Liverpool.
