Audi V8 - 012 gearbox

Hi Guys
I dont have a GT40, sorry! but I have made a replica Zonda R inspired thing. It was powered by a twin turbo Jag V12 coupled to an 012 transaxle with a redrilled Audi 80 flywheel and clutch. All was good until the engine blew.
So I have now fitted a 32 valve Audi V8, again using the same gearbox.

Someone suggested that you experts here might know what is the best flywheel and clutch setup yo use with my setup?

any help will be gratefuly received!!

By the way, I used the Audi 80 diesel gearbox which is a great tranaxle and I had no issues with the Jag v12 at 1 bar boost, it flew!

Cheers
Nick

Re: Audi V8 - 012 gearbox

Nick, please provide photos of the Audi 012 transaxle mated to your V12 if possible. This group is always interested in transaxle options and the 012 might be something to consider. Scott Dewitt....any thoughts on this as an option to the O1E or o16?
BTW, Nick I'd contact Scott Dewitt with www.AdvancedAutomotion.com he appears to be quite well versed in Audi gear.

Re: Audi V8 - 012 gearbox

thats good to hear, as i have just purchased an 012 box from a V6 deisel to go behind a mild 302 SBF in a single seater. the ratios are spot on, i dont have to flip it, and the bonus was it was as cheap as chips.

cheers John

Re: Audi V8 - 012 gearbox

Just wondering Nick, who made the chassis? I would be looking seriously at those rear shock mounts and how they are located.

Hi Bruce
I made the chassis As the car evolved bits have had to be trimmed off here and there to fit new bits. One mount had to be trimmed to allow the V12's left turbo to fit correctly, but there is a torsion bar that goes between the 2 mounts for extra rigidity

I based the design of the chassis on the Ultima and so far its stood the test of time with no issues

Hi Mark
I am using a VW VR6 flywheel that has been machined, and using the flex-plate for the starter, The whole lot weighs 7kgs. I can use any VW clutch now
I will ave to drill and tap through the VR6's clutch bolt holes to bolt the flex-plate to the flywheel and align the 10 flywheel bolts holes up. I guess it will need balancing afterwards
