    Widebody RCR40

    Hi Adam, I'd recommend contacting Brent Lykins from Lykins Motorsports, LLC He has built magazine feature engines, but mor importantly he spends a lot of time talking his customers through the options available. In conversations on the Cobra forum, it's fascinating to learn from his knowledge...

    What modifications needed for a Diesel or an LNG-fueled SL-C?

    The only performance diesel engines that I've seen locally are the big and bulky Duramax engines. These are obviously too chunky for a sports car application, but the amount of torque they produce is almost hard to fathom. Without spending much money, these are making 600+rwhp and over...

    GT40 to be honoured at 2013 Goodwood Revival

    In case anyone has the same issue with the website not accepting your overseas post code, the way I got around it last year (because Dad and I couldn't possibly miss a full field of Cobras!) was to set up your account on the website by using an English post code. After the account is created...

    Goodwood Revival 2012

    A couple of weeks after Goodwood, I stumbled across the MkIII being photographed for an upcoming Octane cover feature. Here is the owner, restorer, journo and photographer. MkIII GT40 I must admit that I didn't know much about the MkIII cars, so the details such as the hinged front "bonnet"...

    Hi, From Australia

    Hi Tristan. Nice old Fairmont! I have owned my XY Fairmont for 24 years now. It was my first car and I fitted a 351 Clevo just in time for me to get my license. It has a 460 in it now :) There's a mountain of information to work your way through on this site. Put aside hours and hours for...

    Driving impression - difference between RF1 and RF2?

    Hi, I've done some online searches and haven't come up with a clear picture about what was re-engineered from the old RF to the new RF, other than replacing the cast front uprights with newly manufactured ones. Is there much of a change to the feel of the car (and do those with earlier cars...

    Albins 6 speed sequential

    After seeing the monster SL-C that RCR Australia are building, I wonder if anyone else is investigating the possibility of using the Albins 6 speed sequential trans. I just found one for sale for $15K AUD. I'm not connected to the sale. If you look at the bottom of the Ebay advert (in the...

    Current State of GT40 Market

    Is it fair to say that the interior hasn't been finished to the same standard as many (most) other GT40s, or is it just a bad photo in difficult lighting conditions? I'd be surprised if the interior didn't match the standard of the rest of the car, but I'm only going by the photo...

    RCR's new car..962

    Perry's video is pretty wild, but I don't think that particular video highlights torque. Look at the rpm when he hits the gas - it's up pretty high already. Having said that, I wouldn't be surprised if it's making nearly 600lb/ft by 3000rpm on an engine dyno.

    Current State of GT40 Market

    I'm astounded that this car has been on Ebay at $40K starting price for nearly a week without a single bid, and the Buy It Now price is only $60K. Seems like a great deal for a new car that looks fabulous on the outside and in the engine compartment. The interior isn't it's strong point, but...
