My Puma.. Maximum Track Attack!!

Hiya, please tidy those brake hoses! It doesn't look like there's any slack in it which may lead to the hose or fitting being ripped with the suspension movement. Also it's a good idea to have an air loop in the pipe/hose to stop air getting further back into the brake pipes or master cylinder.

rear bumper wanted

Hi, i'm in need of a rear bumper in decent condition but not fussed on colour (although silver would be a bonus). Looking to collect from Essex or nearby.

radiator upgrade

364431 I just did over 200 miles in 30' heat, including a couple of 30 minute sessions on track. Wringings its neck every step on the way. All on a standard radiator. Temp gauge was rock steady. A standard (good condition) is more than up to the job in a Puma. If your over heating. Check for blocka...

radiator upgrade

Hi all, are there any straightforward radiator swaps for the Puma? I'm running a standard Ford Fiesta/Puma rad and now temps are worrying me. The FRP rad seems to be the same model as the regular Puma, but does a Focus or Mondeo rad fit or offer a larger core?

Puma'd mk6 fiesta

It could be done but as others have said you would need to replace the ECU instruments and loom with that from a Puma. The Mk6 1.6 Fiesta engine is a minor evolution of the Sigma from the Mk5 which is closely related to the Puma lump. You should be able to use a combination of the engine mounts from...

polycarbonate windows

Just an update, i've gone for the Plastics4Performance kit and raced with the side windows so far. The tailgate has now been replaced and the pre-formed polycarb window bonded in. Hopefully it doesn't fall out on track!

Clutch for track (eventual race) car

How much torque are you planning? I've had no problems with my standard ST150 clutch in my racecar for the last few years.

Fibreglass Panels - Potential New Supplier

Yes i would. We need an alternative to the Pumaspeed FRP kit i think. Would like the option of Super1600 panels too.

polycarbonate windows

Hi all, can anyone recommend anyone other than Plastics4performance for a side and rear window kit? I'm assuming it needs to be a formed kit due to the curvy nature of the Puma? Would like a choice and i'm grumbling at needing to spend over £400 for some plastic!

FIA 6 pole master switch

In my case i ran wires from the master switch back to the ignition switch, to kill all the power rather than just the ignition. But yes otherwise just cut the wire and put terminals on the 2 new ends you've just created.

alloy fuel tank

Hi folks, I am prepping a Puma for racing and having had to ditch the OEM tank due to rust, i'm researching alloy tanks of around 20 litres and installation options. So what have you and how is it installed?

Shame about the kit as was very interested in his kits for a future project. Does anyone know if the Pumaspeed kits are any good?
