Track day modified Zender Bumper and bonnet mods

I will post photos of these as these develop, but there are two major ideas here- I'd like anyone's input or experience, please: Basically, I want to be able to swap my (real) original Zender bumper off and fit my fibreglass copy as easily as possible, for track days. The head aches are; quick relea...

Re: SA GTV6 3.0 NACA vent dimensions

You're a legend, Kevin....

I saw a pic of one of the Domingo boys' GTV6 with the Zender kit and the SA bonnet and It looked so hot, I couldn't resist!

SA GTV6 3.0 NACA vent dimensions

Hi to our Saffa brothers with a request for some details on the 3.0 bonnet... I'm looking to replicate aspects of the NACA vent in carbon fibre for my bonnet and was hoping someone could measure the major details on their vent for me? Let's say: width, height and placement (how far up the hump?) Tha...

Re: driveshaft conversion

Z, I hadn't asked Beninca about building a driveshaft... I'm happy to give them a call and see what they say. The bonus of that, Is the whole assembly will leave balanced to their (exacting) standard and ready to go. CF would be v nice, Pieter- we just need to wait for some guys to start writing the...

Re: driveshaft conversion

That's a fair point. Even more reason to have the engine flywheel adapted to take one. I can't see any downsides to having three BMW ones. MD has had luck with his arrangement of three different joints and others have with other combinations as well, but I see this solution as OEM+ rather than an ou...

Re: driveshaft conversion

After much discussion, we are planning to fabricate a tail shaft with two BMW donuts up front/middle and an Alfa one at the rear, as the sacrificial link. Construction material to be determined. Will probably require a custom flywheel up front. I can't find PCD info for either our, or the BMW donuts...

Re: driveshaft conversion

Beninca balanced my current tail shaft and it has never given me any issues until now. I think the ends of the bolts holding the front donut on have started to splay out from all the "g" Ive put them under over the years... I had to laugh when it blew! Now, I'm worried more about torque than revs, b...

Re: driveshaft conversion

This has been the most enjoying topic to read through! After destroying my front donut (fitted about 13 years ago when I did my 2.5 screamer conversion- obviously an original Pirelli part, because I regularly changed gears at 8000 and never had an issue until it exploded), I've digested everything h...

Re: My rebuild!

Thanks Joe- that's awesome work considering the altitude! Wonder how it would go down in Durban or CT? Engine is in my possession and we have started cleaning it up. Hugh is having a jig made so that wiring looms can be laid up for future 24v projects. My ECU choice has been narrowed down to a Motec...

Broken (snapped) door handle

So, the new door seals were so good, the passenger door handle snapped in half when I tried to open my door the other day. I've bought a new handle, and I'm wondering if anyone has ever dismantled one to change the locks over. It looks like some drilling of rivets is required - can anyone shed any l...
