Re: ZFQ new proposed GT40 transaxle

Hi Guys

although this is a little off thread, there are 3 widths of arches the original cars with wire wheels are 70" across the ones in the photo are 72" across like the CAV and GTD, then there is the Gulf arches that are 78" across.

Regards

Chris.

A wide backside is always a good thing...just the way I like it. I will have to opt for the Gulf arch version with the snorkies.

Re: ZFQ new proposed GT40 transaxle

Hi Chris,
are you going to test high speed as well, like on the track of Nardō?

Good luck
Wanni

Good business move. SEMA is full of decision makers and I'm sure SPF will welcome an additional option.

Re: ZFQ new proposed GT40 transaxle

Chris can you post some pictures of your transaxle installed in a car? Preferable a SPF GT40. I'm interested in seeing how the shift cables were routed and held in place. I would also like to see some pictures of the bellhousing you make and some info as to what clutch and flywheel I would need. Thanks

Re: ZFQ new proposed GT40 transaxle

Hi Richard

Dennis Olthoff will contact you by email regarding the cable change set up, and will be making his improved version of the SPF shift linkage available to ZFQ customers.
I have asked Martin Gough to look through his photo's to see if he has a photo showing the SPF arrangement that we used on Dennis's car as I managed to miss that detail with my shots.

For bellhousing info go here
Proposed new ZFQ/ZF Ford/Chevy Bellhousing

Chris:

Did the transmissions actually get sent or is there another delay? A number of us are hopeful that they're en route.

Thanks!
