    Audi V8 - 012 gearbox

    Hi Nick I found this info on the internet a while ago. It's for a 16v Audi engine. I'm planning on using it for my Audi ABZ engine as a starting point (looking to do Megasquirt too). Might be some use... Good luck Cheers James

    James' GT-Forté scratch build GT40 MkI

    Hey Frank - I am listening! I'll listen to anyone who's taken the time to comment on my build, especially you guys with a lot of experience. I get that mounting the suspension as far outboard as possible results in the least amount of bending on the wishbones. I know there have been some...

    Granada rear hub carrier mounting bolt size

    Hi Does anyone know what size the 4 mounting bolts are for the granada rear hub carriers please? I believe they are M10, but not sure if it's a standard or fine thread? Also, given nylocs aren't used, I'm guessing it would be a good idea to use some threadlock? Cheers James

    James' GT-Forté scratch build GT40 MkI

    THE CHASSIS IS FINISHED!!!!! Taken a bit of time, but finally got to this milestone. (The 4 coats of paint were especially tedious!) But at last I can move on to the next stage :)
