Jentree Classics brought in this lovely little Lotus Elan Sprint for a rolling road tuning session. Until recently this car had been in the same family since it was new. A beautiful car in a not often seen colour.
We had a great looking fast road Jaguar E-type on the rolling road today. Partially stripped out with a roll cage in the back gives the car a real sense of purpose. It came in running super rich. We changed the needles and leaned it out to find a big bump in power and torque from the 3.8 litre engine.
We’ve had some very interesting machines in recently for rolling road tuning in our East Sussex workshop. An unusual, yet potent, Davrian Imp race car. These Imp based machines cleaned up on the race tracks during the 70’s but they are a rare sight now. This one looks like its stepped right out of 1975 and features a full race Hillman Imp engine on Weber carburettors.
We also had this delightful Series 2 Lotus 7 with period race history. Raced in period with a Ford engine it now features a 998cc BMC A-Series on a single Weber carburettor.
Finally, a very well done BMC Works Mini Cooper S rally car replica. This car has been built with a fantastic eye for detail and features genuine Abingdon modified split Weber carburettors.
We specialise in rolling road tuning at our Sussex workshop. Call for more details.
We specialise in classic car tuning. We see a lot of old Jaguars on the rolling road but this Mk2 was particularly nice. The car has been restored to a very high standard, finished in grey metallic with oxblood interior. We tuned the twin SU carburettors on its 3.8 litre engine. In addition to the carburettors we also checked and set the ignition timing.
