Re: Son of Cab a FWD racer?

Ah, good to see you back Bird Brains. I have heard people say you got a brain just like a birds nest- all full of shit and sticks. As always, just keeping the insults below the tipping point. In reference to this topic and after much hand wringing, I have decided to build up a 75 series and just ser...

Re: Son of Cab a FWD racer?

Nah. Way too much trouble and expense. I think what I should do is modify the gearbox so it has 6 reverse gears and 1 forward. Place the steering wheel in the back seat and put the radiator in the boot. A straight conversion to rear wheel drive just like a Ferrari. I don't know why I didn't think of...

Nice work Kevin.
As far as I know, I do not recollect seeing that extra plastic filler in local cars.
What I do know is that JK could use some of that cavity wax you are using... :mrgreen:

Re: Our 1600 Junior restoration

One last job Kevin.
Spray cover it all in wax and place it in a time capsule.
Electric car owners of the future will gaze in amazement of how real cars were made.
Good job Fella and give you dad a slap on the back from all of us as well.

Kevin,
One day when you least expect it, you will receive a giant hard copy letter delivered by a flat bed Mack truck.
The envelope will contain a letter of congratulations for winning the ALFA ROMEO GTV6 NOBEL PRIZE OF 2019.

So having looked at the statistics of 269 views of this topic with 3 votes for and 1 ambidextrous, I think the real message is that most users of this Forum don't give a shit one way or another. So to spare everybody the pain, I...

Son of Cab a FWD racer?

I will be guided by you-the members of this site and your feedback. Here's the run down. Transaxle cars are becoming more and more rare from natural attrition here and the cars themselves are moving up in prices and so the old notion of just hacking one up for racing is for me at least becoming an i...

Starter Motor Heat Shield

Been a while..haven't been able to log onto the site. I thought I would share this little modification with you to minimise the radiant heat stress on the starter motor from the exhaust manifold. Not only can it lead to wiring getting fried with cracked insulation but the solenoid itself may suffer ...

The secret is out !!!

The reason why South Africans, Brazilians, Kiwis and the True Blue crowd make the best drivers in the world.

Re: My rebuild!

Unfortunately I am getting more round as time goes on.. :D I have never been away. Just keeping a low profile to stay away from that pesky Greekster. Anytime soon they will be removing the white jacket he's been wearing for years and my fear is that he's going to hit that keyboard to get square afte...

Re: My rebuild!

Instead of a large diameter clutch plate requiring even more customisation, why not consider multi plate clutches like they have on high power motorcycles?

Re: Italian Challenge 2018 Race Video (Queensland)

Right car and event but wrong driver.

Here is some classic GTV6 racing in OZ. Car driven by formula one world champion Alan Jones and Australia Rally champion Colin Bond.
