Our Area has a large number of like minded folks who enjoy their MX-5s - So large that we now have FOUR convoys to our monthly meets.

The Convoy Details
O> Leamington Convoy - Meets at "The Moorings" in Leamington spa. Leaves @ 7.10pm.

O> Redditch Convoy - Meets at the new McDonalds on the Coventry Highway. Leaves @ 7.15pm

O> Coventry Convoy - Meets at McDonalds car park on Hollyhead road. Leaves @ 7.15pm

O> Stourbridge Convoy - Meets at The Crabmill (Bottom Car Park). Leaves @ 7:00pm. Makes stops at Littleton Arms @ 7:05pm, and Paul Matty Sports Cars (Jc 2 M42) @ 7:20pm.


Our meets attract more and more folks each time. So much so we have our meets to a pub with a large car park. We have a lovely overflow car park to attempt to fill.

Anybody and everybody is welcome, even if you don't have a five. There are plenty of cars to lift the bonnets on and plenty of owners only too keen to show you their pride and joy.

If you are new to the meets then please search out Nick or Cerberus. If you can't find us, head for the flag.

Which will be placed on a table indoors during the winter months. So that you know it's us and not a meeting of the local knitting circle :wink:

If the weather is nice then we will likely all be out in the car park. In which case, head for the big flag.

Please don't hang around kicking your own tyres feeling left out. Ask for us :wavey:

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you send the wall across the field once you've hit it.

I really wanted to come to this but I was working on the car.

I needed a solenoid to overide the bypass valve from inside the car...

I bought one which was really strong and did the job but the inner sleeve was plastic and melted after an hour of continuous use (even though it said continuous use in the description) locking the plunger solid....

SO I bought another one which I confirmed with the supplier was rated for continuous use but it was far too weak to operate the valve (even though it said it was 55N the same as the one that I bought first).

The second one had a Brass sleeve surrounding the plunger so! :shock: Yes I took all of the CU wire off it and wound the Cu wire of the first solenoid onto it by HAND!!! :shock: - instead of coming to the meet.

Anyway it work great now 8)

Just waiting to see if it melts anything or catches fire I guess :oops:

Did many go? it was pissing down
