    Lola T70 Mk 3B Chassis Blue Prints

    James, there is very little steel in a mk3b chassis, save for the front crossmember and rear engine mounts/trailing link/ lower roll cage unit and odd stressed suspension mounting points. You will find it nigh on impossible to find original technical drawings for a chassis. Do you mean you...

    Gt40 Exhaust for 302 engine

    Mark, if you are on a budget I can give you a surface rusty, but perfectly restorable and usable complete system for nothing. Been in my workshop for at least 12 years since removal from 302 SB Ford engine on a GT40.

    917 full tube frame build

    For your 917s to handle right and anywhere near to the originals, you must keep the weight down to allow the Porsche engines to deliver the power, and fitting an after market type fan is not only top end heavy, but draining on the engines output. That gearbox of yours is very heavy and will give...

    Lola T70 Wheels Wanted (Borrow or Buy!) UK

    Front and rear are different on spoke design. You have not stated what type of T70, as rims are different for earlier type. I would not lend my current Mk3B magnesium wheels, but I do have some old ones. Many companies can scan, but making new wheels is very expensive. Have recently lent wheel...

    Knock off safety clips

    In all the years that I have raced, and with my 40 having done nigh on a hundred serious events, I have never had a spinner undo or slacken. I,ve always used a very heavy duty tie strap, quick to fit tightly through a wheel spoke and spinner arm, and even quicker to cut off for fast wheel...
