The Baltic Classic Rally 2017

Congrats to Wilfried Bechtolsheimer and Colin Banstead in their 1939 Citroën CV 15/6 Légère who came 13th out of 46 in the Baltic Rally 2017 Winter Raid which took place between the 18th and 21st of January 2017.

The Citroen was specially set up for long distance rallying and the GAZ suspension had been revalved to the specification provided by Suspension Supplies, who advised on the suspension and Thornley Kelham who prepared the car.

Now we are looking forward to the summer Baltic Rally which takes place from Sunday 28th May 2017 to Saturday 10th June.

The two-week rallying adventure starts in Copenhagen and then takes in Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland before finishing in Berlin.

Good luck to all taking part!

How low can you go with a T5?

Richard contacted us telling us about his 2014 T5.1 Caravelle and asking how to set up an ultra low suspension.

We'll let Richard tell the story and show how we answered his questions...

 


Hi GAZ,

 

I have a T5.1 Caravelle (14plate), I'm interested in your shocks to firm up the boat-like factory ride (my 5 year old suffers from travel sickness in it, much more so than when in my car)... Would you recommend the normal or the extra low for this kind of adjustment? (I love the look of a low van, and I'm sure it would look super cool on both sets, but my priority is tackling the handling).

Also - do you have any pictures of vans running the ulta low kit? - I've not seen it anywhere and can't find much in the web as it seems pretty new. Thanks!

Regards, Rich

 


 

Hi Richard.

With both kits the ride on the van will be stiffer as we have to increase the spring rates when a coilover is used due to their being less movement in the spring and if too soft they would close the coils up. You do get rebound adjustable damping on the front and bump & rebound on the rear which is adjusted from a single control on a fixed ratio. On the standard coilover kit you can get up to around -70mm and on the ultra-low -100mm but you will increase the negative camber on the van as you lower it and the more you go down, the more negative it will get and it will wear the inside edge of the tyre. I have attached a couple of pictures of a van with our ultra-low kit on.

 

Regards. The GAZ Team

 


 

Hi GAZ.

Can I ask what the minimum height is on the ultra low?

My Caravelle has about 100 and 120mm gap from top of tyre to the arch lip (front/rear respectively). I obviously want it lowering a fair amount, but the purpose really is to adjust the ride to be less boat-like for my kids in the rear... So at the min the aim is not to fix it at a height as low as I can (I know for some folks that is the aim), but instead to find a balance of firmness... As such, I'm wondering if the ultra low would be better with less use of the max available drop - rather than running the regular ones on the full -70 drop? (i.e. at what range of drop do these products overlap) ?

Regards Richard

 


 

Hi Richard.

The normal kit will be from -15mm to -70mm and the ultra low from around -25mm to -100mm. With the standard coilover kit the lower you set the van the less movement you have in the damper.

Regards. The GAZ Team

 


 

Well it looks like Richard got his van sorted because he's just sent us a pic over, and we reckon it looks just right. Agreed?

GAZ and the Butcher's Van

vanOur mate, Martyn Hillier, is the genius behind the The Butcher's Arms, in Herne Village, Kent which was the first Micropub in the country and is possibly the smallest freehouse in England.

This tiny pub has sparked the rise of many other micro pubs which are springing up all over Britain, but Martyn's love of small but dynamic things goes further than his pubs.

He just sent us pics of his micropub delivery van. It an Asquith Motor Carriage, based on a Reliant Fox van. Nothing particularly remarkable about that you might think. Asquith have been turning out their antique style minivans for years now... well not like this one! Martyn's van is powered by a Honda Super Blackbird motorcycle engine, taking the power from a measly 40 hp to 175hp!.

Needless to say the 0 to 60mph time is impressive.

 

Martyn was into 'bikes in his youth until an accident put an end to his two wheel activities, but the 'bike engined van (with a paddle gear change on the steering column) still gets the adrenalin pumping and naturally has GAZ coilovers to keep the beer from spilling over. This puts a whole new meaning to ' a swift half'.

Check out the pics of Martyn's van and his micro pub and next time you're in the area, drop in for a pint. Tell him we sent you! Cheers all!

GAZ Fiesta wins 24h classic at the 'Ring

gaz1gaz2Frank Dauber from Germany's Fiesta Retro Parts has just let us know that their GAZ Gold equipped Fiesta has just won the 1300 cc class at the famous 24H Classic races, run at the Nürburgring. It must have been quite a hairy drive judging by the 'Ring Rash on the front wing which wasn't there on the early race photo!

Well done Frank and we're pleased that the GAZ Gold Kit handled all those twists and turns in style (Well, all but one).
