Stoneleigh Kitcar show






















This year I was able to take the Mojo to both days of Stoneleigh - otherwise known as the national kitcar show.
Another great year, including mine there were 8 Mojo's in attendance!
We had to drive through 40 miles of heavy rain to get to the show yesterday, then drove through 6 heavy showers on the way home tonight. That goodness for a hood and doors!

Brands Hatch fun

This evening I went to Brands Hatch to do my first ever Trackday event.

It was a 20 minute taster session, costing a bargain £25.

It was one of the best things I've ever done - really recommend it to anyone.


Please forgive the noise - the bracket I made for the camera was vibrating at high revs causing it.

Helmet bought!



I have bought a Helmet so that I can start to use the Mojo on some track days.
I have my eye on a track day taster session at Brands Hatch to start off with.
Need to get the Mojo noise tested so I know what track days are open to me. (They all have differing noise levels allowed)

New rear lights fitted



I have now fitted and wired in the new rear lights to the Mojo.
Lets hope this set work a bit better than the last set!

Late evening work











As the sun was setting tonight, I replaced a few items on the Mojo.

First was the fuel filter, you can see from the picture of the old one all the bits that it had filtered out over the 2 years and 6000 miles.

My rear lights have always had an annoying problem where the bulb falls out because of all the vibrations coming from the engine. The bayonet part of the fitting for the bulb went into plastic on my old lights, but my new set are metal, so no amount of vibration will let the bulb work its way loose. (See pics for a much better description than I can give!)
I will buy some new screws and nuts tonight and fit them over the next few days.

Its been a very long 4 months....!

Wheel bearing replaced
























Before re taxing the Mojo this year I though it a good idea to really check the whole car over as its been sat stored for 4 months.

The right rear wheel bearing was excessively worn, to the point the wheel had some play in it, so the time was right to replace it.

The hub came off easily enough, complete with the very worn bearings. Getting the bearing shells out proved to be a right sod, so I took it to a local garage with a hydraulic press and let them do it - much easier!

The threads on the end of the driveshaft were slightly worn, so I grinded them flat to get the new hub nut on. (The driveshaft is designed that the first section has no threads on it - as per the photos)

I also replaced the oil and oil filter, overdue after 2 years and 6000 miles!
I'm all set now for another summer of fun - and should be able to put the Mojo back on the road this week.
Let the good times roll!
