Fed , the only pannels that are fiberglass are the bonnet and bootlid. Both run 0 toe.
I have just moved to toe in from toe out but my line has changed when entering corners (only slowish hairpins )

Nice Kev! thanks a lot for the pics! any idea on the weight these giulies are running?

I was running some numbers and I think i'm going with the coil over kit from RS racing, as I can't run adjustable shocks, whatever change in bump and rebound setting must be done by revalving, therefore the RS kit seems like a good way to go.
I love the brake setup, those look like twin 75 brembo calipers, I don't know if I could get away with that setup by the rules we have...got to look into that, but in any case I think finding those uprights will be hard.
Also, i'm looking for a TS engine from a 75, not easy to find but seems like the best way to go, std engine with head porting thanks to Jim K book and 45 DCOE's I have laying around here.

I think with a TS engine, cage, fiberglass bonet and trunk lid I could get the weight down to about 1100 kg...plus, the most important and difficult part, I need to lose weight! :D

Maurizio, the giuli with the exhaust on front is an ex rally car tnat did all those safari rallies. Its only lately been lowered to the ground.
The white giuli i am referring to is the one with wing , its exhaust comes out side. There are pics of it on another thread which i will look for .

So an Alfa Dealer asked for some of our trofeo cars for a morning display on Saturday . Thats where the fun started . No better excuse to test some more and have a few drag races en route. (i realised i have not grown up yet). The "drive" was 70km so my race tank was fulled to brim.
Now the best part was "driving'' with a Monza on the way back . All I can say is we got more stares and video clips from anyone trying to keep up pace. (not on my car) .Cant divulge to much more but a few pics of the entrants.

Thanks P , but I am going to have to put back the original livery from the 1983 season for the next historic race in january .
Attached is a link from a our last race . This is page 6 , but it's interesting to go through all pages to see body roll of the other cars.
Also picked up I missed the apex of the corner but geez does this car fly and I'm a bit rusty so everything was out a bit . I was in such a rush to get to the track , scrutineer , qualify , bleed brakes etc I forgot to take my dam numberplate off. This negated all the effort I put in trying to get more air to radiator - ( tosser :D )
