Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

You should take it to the Exotics at Redmond Town Center event that happens every Saturday morning that doesn't have rain. Some really great cars out there. Starts at 8:30-9 and goes until ~11...You can come or leave any time.

I'll be there around 9am but not in the GT as I'm stopping by heading out of town to take pictures...for a new site I run called AutoMotoMedia - Auto & Moto Photo/Video Library and Enthusiast Group! for photographers who love cars.

Anyways, hope to see you there!

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Hi Brent,

A quick question, where did you get the original wheels? I think that the kit comes with Hollibrand from RCR? Correct? The ones that you got (original or replicas doesn't matter they are so nice...) are the ones to have...

Congrats for this wonderfoul race car.

All the best,

Vassilis

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Excuse my ignorance... I just saw on page 30 on RCR forum that actually the turbine wheels are RCR made... Though there is nothing in their website.

Thanks anyway.

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Since I am about two to three years away from my MK IV, I can only drive her virtually on GT5.... The photos are from the game (Photo Mode)...

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

"Big" is a photographer, when at Laguna he had his GT loaded with camera equipment, to the point there was almost no room for him. Those shots do make the car look like a model car though, don't they.

Wow if that is what a video game version of a GT looks like these days....I need to update my games!

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Hi guys, since you liked it... here are some more...

Ooopssss.... For some reason I can't upload my photos.... Sorry about that...

@Fran, How come your site has nothing on these wheels? These photos from the game are correct more than you can imagine, even down to the different color of knock-offs (blue/right, red/left). Can you do something like that in the future? Excellent job on this spectacular car, and thanks for giving us a chance to have it...

John
It is a group of mailboxes, so the proportions would be different. It is a photoshop, but looks to be a real photo.

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Vassilis....We do many things that are not on the website.

We supply many parts for specifically RCR kits due to the complexity of the design and potential changes required to fit other brands of kit.

I meant Photoshop in the effects, not that he faked the photo.

Brent appears to have his front wheels on the wrong side, pic of 'original' type turbines

Re: BigB's RCR MKIV

Just like Shelbys boys did when they then proved that the turbine wheel failed in its ability to better cool the brakes...so I guess Brent has them correct , depending upon which Shelby team member installed them.....wink

I remember someone posting that info [speed 220mph?]
worse is the road cars we sometimes see with what looks like a reasonably efficient 'turbine' design & then they dont reverse the pattern for the other side, I keep visualising a car that slowy pulls to one side or a whole heap of other issues it might cause & everyone scratching their heads trying to work out why....
