Chicagoland MG Club: Driveline August 2015

  Monthly Meeting Minutes
July 20, 2015

Victor Lheureux

40 Members in attendance

Car Projects- Dave Bralich reported that he finished the single line braking system on his ’67 MGB and will convert to a dual system at a later date. He also replaced worn out parts on his clutch.
Some discussion about a wobble when driving between certain speeds thinking the spokes on wire wheels was the issue. It was suggested that wheel balancing is more likely the cause.

Past Events
  • Miata Autocross I & 2 - There were only a few MGs but enough that they had their own class. Everyone is encouraged to try an Autocross to have fun and improve driving skills.
  • AHC/CMGC Autocross was postponed due to weather.
  • Secrets of Jo Daviess County - It was a repeat of Dan Herman’s first tour with the shopping in Galena replaced by a stop at a distillery and the addition of a brewery before dinner. All had a good time.
