Seem you can have too many racers! One of them needs to go. Looks like it will be the TR4. I've had it for 30 yrs! Raced it initially on a very tight budget when in my 20's. Then when I had a bit more cash, raced alot from mid 90''s > 2000. This period was bloody brilliant, really close racing (stuff you would not get away with now but so much fun!!) in the TR Register, mostly between a small group of 4 pot TR's and some 6’s (Mike Hazelwood, Dave Bailey, Mike Hughes, Mike McKenna, Roy Chamberlin, Steve Chapman, and more). Car was fairly low budget to keep at this level and only started to get unreliable past 2000. Went down the route of getting fathers TR6 put to fast Roadsport spec (almost as fast as the TR4 in a fairly basic track spec but alot more reliable than the 4 had become), did this for a few years where the 6 won its class pretty much whenever it came out. Went back to the 4 for the mid 2000's (in the Thoroughbred Sportscars by this point) with steel crank, trick rods / pistons and the trick Ali head. It was very fast but reliability still not the greatest. So parked it in 2006 and through a big lump at making the TR6 a full house modified racer and raced that mostly since. 4 just sat about with the odd engine mod and driven on the road a fair bit. Tried to race it a few times but realised I needed to though most of the engine in the bin if ever going to get it fast AND reliable again! Think it all went in the bin bar the block and roller rockers, (did find out when we did a detailed check over at this point, most of the issues we'd had for so long were down to two thing (one the sump baffling - people who did it all that time back were supposedly the best at TR's and very clearly weren't! and the oil take off for the cooler, similar weird mods in there (thing had been on there since we'd bought it as a racer....))! New everything really (better steel crank, similar rods but lighter, pistons, liners, cam, etc, etc, and finally the ali head (made crazy power but always had and underlying sealing issue). With all this and going back to a really nicely done iron head it was finally fast again but as important, now seems pretty bombproof (not missed beat since below (Class Win in Swinging 60's).
Car off getting a thorough Winter check over now.
But where to sell it? Never thought I would.......................
Probably isn’t a faster TR4 around. No its not fia and never was going to be, I always just wanted the fastest 4 pot TR….
