Things to fix

The TVR had a 3 month warranty from purchase, ending on 30/01/2012.Befoer the warranty ran out there were a few niggles we fixed ourselves, and I brought the car back to TrackVRoad just before the 3 months was up, spent 2 1/2 hours there chatting and asking questions, and they spent over an hour on the car fixing the front ride height and giving it a good check over.

Firstly, the things I have fixed:

And the things fixed in a garage

 

Things to fix

  • Brake balance. This is proving problematic. See this page
  • Fueling. See this page
  • Sticky throttle cable (probably) – Sometimes revs don’t drop as they should when coming off the throttle.
  • Rear suspension – May need to increase the damping to avoid excess travel and wheel rub. Spring are 400 front, 375 rear. Perhaps raise front and rear 5mm as well.
  • New battery. No idea how old the existing battery is.
  • The driver’s door card is a little loose. I only noticed this after one week. TrackVRoad have informed me that these are easy to remove, with 3 screws at the bottom and it slots in at the top. I may take it off to have a look. It could be that the card is a little long and is slightly bowed.
