"yes..... drive with the doors on AND a pannel behind the drivers seat... between the roll bar (made from perspex) the car will still be very draughty but the tendancy to suck your hat off is very much reduced. makes the car more plasant to drive on…"

Out in the sticks

"i always found the cars too light to get any benifit from big tyres..... i think that 165 or 175 up front is about right and 175 or 185 at the rear.... i have found that wider tyres less grippy especially in the wet."

B Type

"fitting the spare wheel in its "propper" place also helps to worsen the cooling...... Duttons were well known for over heating in the day."

B Type

"bear in mind that your placment of the radiator will almost certainly end up with the car overheating especially in traffic. you could permanently wire up a large fan to blow air through.... or just move the rad to the nose cone..... that will mean…"

Hi Dave!
Thanks for your message! You apparently owned many Duttons! I was wondering what you think about the Legerra?
Is this as fun as a Phaeton? Or does it feel heavier and seems more like a "normal" car? It's probably more comfortable?
I have experienced myself the comfort difference between the Phaeton S2 and S3. I'm myself rather tall and my S3 had a much more spacious cockpit. The S2 has such a narrow cockpit and is also much lower! My head is just touching the roll bar..

I am very pleased with it Dave, it has more than enough grunt to use on road in order to put a smile on my face. It is also very driveable right across the rev range using all five gears.

You are not alone I purchased my Leggy off Piston Heads as a rolling chassie and body, rear axle was tacked in with weld no springs  no engine, no gearbox, no loom, no seats or instruments. Still an ongoing project 4 years later but i ist now drivable on the drive way. Getting older does appear to have some thing to do with doing these stupid stunts.
