Thanks Martin.

Brian, I’ve got a two year old girl and our second due in August.I’m perpetually confused.
I have a question for you though… We’ve got a gearbox from one of the vertical TT engines (this alone is not a good design) and I actually built the cluster into a modified standard three speed box a few years ago to try it. I’d done the maths and saw that it was a very close ratio, but really wanted to try it. I took it to Cadwell and completely destroyed my clutch getting it off the line throughout the day. The ratios were exactly the same as 2nd,3rd and 4th on the four speed box. Did you find similar gearbox ratios on the TT stuff you’ve been working on?
