JJ - hey mate, if you've recently driven Dawie's white TT with the standard box in rear, you've gotta drive this thing......

There's NO comparison...... we've got it running up to 1.6 bar in the winter. It likes the cold air!

Seriously, it's one DANGEROUS (read kill yourself) track car.

Hey John, I just send you an email about it, i've been trying to figure out if I can use it or not, but the best thing and what I want to do is exchange it for a pro, I haven't installed it yet as I still have a month at least until the car is ready for the engine to be put on. I just wanted to bit...

... there is only one advice i can give you guys; take the lap with Sabine at the end of your stay, or else you might think you could do that too and really hurt yourself :cry: . Remember she has approx 15.000 :shock: laps on her name so she knows everything about the ring... I can recommend a fast...

:D thought it was something like that.... but never knew you had to tilt the a-arm forward. Anti dive: I had an idea on that one too but went into the bin when going to coil over. Not enough room on the standard upper arm. You need to frabricate one. My idea was to move the castor rod mounting on t...

My ex-rouse gtv6 has anti dive lower arms from the IMSA 75 turbos. I'll see if i can post a pic. Make the front end of the car quite 'twitchy' and it's you loose a bit of 'feel' at the point of locking the wheels under braking. What i mean is, it's easier to lock the wheels, as you get less warning.

It's easy You need the speedo sender (the box under the rear l/h seat) from the 4.1 car, and swap this with the 3.54 sender you have now. Also the pick up sensor from the 4.1 box - mounted in the left hand side in front of the reverse switch. You also need the speedo unit for the dash. The easiest w...
