Re: Question of wheel size and brakes that'll fit........

First search and find what width tyre you can get! Not sure about your regs over there but so,e of them are only S to T rated for speed, not much good if you want a safe ride

Re: Mystery Car Contest

The first photo shows a side intake and in Patís photo it is not there.

I did a fair bit of searching on line and none of the old photos show the air intake, so when did it get added?

Re: GT40 kit completed the most

My DAX at SVA with full tanks 1125kg bit DAX builds a heavy body over 1cm thick around screen opening! and thicker chassis rails.

I believe Paul W had his Tornado down to 875kg

Re: GT40 kit completed the most

I would guess for kits sold
Tornado
GTD no longer in existence
RCR
CAV
Superformance
Roaring Forties


As I say just my guess based on length of time trading etc
