Hi,

Thank you for your post, we can defiantly help you with this. Would you be able to tell me the year of your MGB and if you had a particular rally event in mind that you are looking at taking part in?

Thank you

Hello,

It's a 1976 MGB and I was looking at some of the HRCR events.

 

Thank you

Hi,

 

Thank you for the information.

 

For many of the HRCR events we would probably recommend our International 2 Pro (BR6) tripmeter, for its clear displays and features. If you preferred to go with a more retro looking tripmeter then we would recommend out Retrotrip 2 Classique (BR9C), both are simple to fit and work with all our range of sensors.

 

The most commonly fitted sensor for your MGB would be the Speed-Cable Sensor (BR1). An alternative sensor would be the Smiths/Jaeger Speedometer Sensor (BRM12) which screws onto the back of the majority of Smiths and Jaeger Speedometers, this is slightly easier to fit than the BR1 as it simply screws into the back of your speedo, however you would need to check the thread of your speedo matched the M12x1mm thread of this sensor and has a square pin drive.

 

More information on choosing a sensor is available from the following link: https://www.brantz.co.uk/which-sensor

 

After the Tripmeter and the Sensor there is one other item you would require and that is a 2amp in-line fuse (BRFUSE)

 

Obviously there is more equipment/accessories available, but this would be your basic kit to get you going on an event.

 

Let me know if you need any further information.

Hi,

I am looking to put a Brantz into my MK2 MX5 and I have the trip and PC board and wondered if anyone has done this before ?

    Hi, I don't see the pickups for the wheel or prop shaft sensors pictured or listed for sale. Could I possibly see a photo of these to decide whether this option is feasible for my application? Perhaps you have experience in outfitting my car already, it is a '67 Mercedes W111 (Fintail) and ideally I'm hoping to use a wheel sensor.

    Afternoon all! Got an old Retrotrip I am looking at fitting to our old MGB. Straight forwards enough I guess, but....there's always a but... Looks similar to the Retrotrips on your web site but the face counters on this one are held in with some screws. Also, the illumination is from 2 small bulbs soldered in the hood. The power cable is the same, Brown possitive & Green/Yellow Earth with a three core cable that goes to the sensor. Wire colours there are Brown, Blue & Green/Yellow. So which terminals on the sensor do each wire go to? Would be a bit miffed if i got it wrong & melted the internals of this Retrotrip meter. Looking forwards to your replies. Many thanks in advance. Merv!

    Hello, there are several classic and fun rallies in our area where we want to participate. What a tripmaster I buy best as a beginner. I have a Morgan +8 / 73, what sensor do I need. Many Thanks � � 📷
