Re: Son of Cab a FWD racer?

yeah why not :D but to have cheap and readily available parts, 156 or 147 should be easier to get body parts. My 156: stock-ish 2.5 v6 http://shrani.si/f/2f/qs/1oc7ILOA/sphavba.jpg 3.0 tuned and lightened to 1000kg cca, a lot of homemade parts: http://shrani.si/f/20/96/a2qtppq/4278563020473889189073...

Re: Head torque settings for 24V

i always do it like factory specs, but not 4x60. I do it 2x120 degree so to have no stop while the bolt is already torqued so much. I hope you understand :D

Re: 2013 Silverstone Classic ( 300hp beats 500hp !)

Wow Alan that 156 does grip and that's some serious driving ! Any pics of your suspension parts? i still remember your GTV how that stuck ! Here you can see the difference in rear arms: http://shrani.si/f/36/md/1b3V5zoI/20141224142709.jpg random pic of front arm: http://shrani.si/f/1S/cQ/2IExTTW1/r...

Re: 2013 Silverstone Classic ( 300hp beats 500hp !)

Why not fabricate your own parts, i modified my 156 a lot and all is homemade. Made lower arms with unibal and raised them at the subframe 10mm and mowed the upper alu piece that holds the upper arm more out and rotate it to gain more caster and less camber (i made lower arms longer and wheels 40mm ...

Re: 1-Year Notice of Forum Closure (End of 2018)

Please dont close this forum, because of it and because of Jim i finnaly have a reliable 3.0v6 engine in my racecar (Jim's book and all knowledge that he posted on here) It would be a shame to loose so much good information that this forum has. I will happily pay a small fee to help keep it alive. @...

Re: Balancing factor 3.2 V6 + solid flywheel 2.5?

balancing factor is described in Jim K. book.
50% is normal, for trackcar that sees a lot of revs, use 51 max 52%
I did my engine by the book and it revs smoothly and freely.

Re: Another big-brake kit for 15"wheels.

why dont you use 305 x 28mm 5x98 disc from new gtv. Then you wouldnt need to grind the caliper. I think that 3mm diametre difference wouldnt decrease braking performance too much :)

I think you had more power than the S2K. Did the rear tire blow out?
Front right tyre peeled off.

mashup of that day and some cars (including my 156)

Re: Alfa Romeo 75 3,0 V6 Gr. A Conversion from 12V to 24V

Great build!

Plenum looks like a clean and simple design. Maybe you could make some trumpets inside (should give even more flow)
I did them like this:

Re: 3.0 24V - your suggestions

Jim did you ever tested AHMotorsport regrinded cams for 24valve? I have them for over 3 years now on stock hydraulic lifters. They should be around 9.8 lift and 290° duration, timing is at 107° for all 4 cams.
Engine feels strong and revs nice.

Re: 3.0 24V - your suggestions

yety i know you follow my thread too. My 3.0 was somewhere around 270 bhp (when in my fwd gtv) as i was on par with megane and focus RS on 0 to 200kph acceleration (similar weight than my gtv) After that i rebuilded the engine again (i wanted to balance it by Jim's book) and it now lives in my light...
