Sir, Many interesting articles have appeared from time to time on home-built specials and conversions, but I have yet to see some authoritative dope on "blowers" and the manufacture of amateur productions. Perhaps trade secrets enter into the matter, but surely someone at some time or other has made, say, a Cozette-pattern supercharger which, from the meagre details available, looks simple enough...

Sir, The Vintage S.C.C., by its careful definitions of "sports," " super-sports " and " racing " cars, did its best to encourage the " impecunious amateur," and, I think, attracted a considerable number of ti em. Yet it was very seldom that a 750-c.c. class in a speed event had sufficient entries to be run as a class on its own. (These events were open to both Vintage and modern cars.) Most of...

Sir, Having recently read the article which appeared in Motor Sport some months ago by a New Zealand enthusiast, I am prompted to make my small contribution to this worthy journal, which was, until a few months ago, entirely unknown to me. More's the pity. If I make rather heavy weather of it, I ask you to make allowances and try to remember that I find the "spanner mightier than the pen."...

Sir, At the Brains Trust someone raised the hoary question as to whether it is a bad thing to brake when cornering. Mr. Pomeroy pointed out that the application of brakes on a bend may tend to promote an over-steering characteristic (this, of course, would particularly apply with a torque tube or radius arm lay-out), but otherwise the discussion was not carried very far. It is, nevertheless, an...

Readers discuss the Strachan stir-up

[In the April issue, R. C. S. Strachan suggested that the sports car is doomed to disappear from the new-car market. Mr. Lowrey's reaction to this theory was published in the correspondence pages last month and three more replies follow—incidentally, the views expressed all take different angles and would seem to offer convincing collective disposal of at least the fundamentals of Strachan's...

Sir, After reading of your instruction book scheme it occurred to me that there might be readers in Birmingham and district who would be interested but do not know that there are a number of instruction books in the Birmingham Technical Reference Library. They are mostly 1936-38 books, some earlier, and can, of course, only be read at the library and not taken away. I mention the following as...
