I will do my usual stiffening treatment to deal with the loadings of the coil over suspension. At the moment I am welding in some reinforcements to the f...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Hi Kevin, Thanks for your suggestions. Leaving nothing off the list ATM. Fortunately I am not bound by any so called rules. I can pretty much do what I want. Certain tracks just encourage drivers to let the steam off on the track instead of carving up the road and themselves and so the regulations a...

"Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

As you can see from the topic I am getting my hands dirty again and building my last track race car before my age is moving faster than the project. What's it gonna be? Well, it has to be a transaxle true to this Forum. I have built an Alfetta, an Alfetta GT and so it's time the progression goes to ...

Re: Video you don't wanna see

Yes admirable talent. Wish I had some of that talent. Unfortunately when my mum was collecting spare parts to get me on the production line, she was distracted by a pile of bargain handbags and forgot to score a set of cast iron argots for me. You could say I was born a mid-fielder ? What the heck. ...

Re: Video you don't wanna see

Check out the grit determination of this young gun at the recent Bathurst event. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGkIaU-0_s4 The car is a Datsun 1200 model with an SR20 (2 litre ) turbo motor. The driver bio is worth a read : https://www.driverd...

Re: MD has a racing team in the UK?

I lament the day that I sold my Giulia Super. They broke the mold for interesting 4 door boxes when they made the Joolie. Seeing that grey one in the pic brings back lots of great memories... :cry:

Re: MD has a racing team in the UK?

Could be the box itself or just simply the gear selector cable break as it happened in mine. What I do know is that these cars a SAVAGE on the front tyres depending on the track rotation direction often de-laminating the suckers in the process. A shitload of work to make meaningful suspension change...

Re: 24V headers

Some good spaghetti work there Ben. I hear it goes well with 8 000 RPM hot sauce.
Congrats on scoring the Greasers' magnificent version Zeefa. With or without the olive oil, I hear he does do good head work even without a plumber's license. :mrgreen:
