You have some skills to do what you have done to the car. Is all of the effort to then smash it up in a race?!

Bit of an update had not done much recently due to being ill.

Main Live and Earth cables all fitted.

Gearbox is now rebuilt and back in with locked diff and the correct Diff and 2nd gear ratio.

Also have the dash all built up and just a few bits left to do on the wiring.

It's getting there slowly but surely.ImageImageImage


Car needs a good clean out inside but it's getting there [emoji16]

I have been doing it evenings after work and weekends and is nearly there still waiting on engine to come back from machine shop



Thanks :)

Got the suspention on the other night it now sits like a stock rod and has the camber to N/S/F wheel

The car now runs 2.25 springs that way I can easily alter the length and lb of spring if i need to tweek the handling I should not be to far of with the length an lb I have chosen.

The car also now on Gaz shocks all round which are valved correctly for a stock rod.


If you look you will see the car leans to O/S/F as I race in a clockwise direction

ImageImageImageImage

Here is the camber added
Image


I have since tidied the garage up as it was looking a right mess

They are used on the inside O/S as they are ET49

On the outside N/S I will run a different style that's ET13

It's not about looks it's about offset and J as it makes a huge difference how a car will handle on the oval
