    New Build - William Stapleton

    Have patience. We live in a covid era where unemployment benefits are flowing. This is affecting the workforce shortages worldwide. Lead times for all materials are extended. It is what it is.

    SLC 24 Howard Jones

    Here is an interesting post on a different forum about changing the front A arm angle to reduce anti dive. Interesting. https://www.ffcars.com/threads/gtm-82-rebuild-w-the-experience-of-a-10-year-old.638748/post-6109378

    SLC 24 Howard Jones

    Howard, I agree with you that setting the rear upright at vertical (at ride height) is correct. I believe it was designed that way. Howard you know all this stuff but just because this is an interesting subject... The SLC rear double A arm suspension toe in is set by adjusting the length of the...

    Dusty's SLC Build

    See my post at https://www.gt40s.com/threads/rogers-slc-build-thread.52840/post-538725 I used 4.0" tubing bends. Its a tight fit up there but can be done.

    Converting RHD SLC to LHD

    If the chassis was built for the right hand drive, why not leave it that way. Is there a law in the USA that prevents right hand drive registration?

    S2's Build Thread

    Scott. When I put my new stub axles through my C6 rear bearings I used .250" spacers on the cv side.

    Running engine with no rear wheels or suspension etc.

    Take te cv's and axles off. I ran on idle my GTM (successfully) with wheels on but... The oil friction in the transaxle caused the wheels to rotate. I applied the e brake and wheel rotation stopped, all was good. I believe your axles would try to rotate but no real power transmission unless...

    Joel’s SL-C Build Thread

    Your intake routing is similar to mine. What ID is that flex tubing? I will be using the area to the left side of the fuel tank (typically where fuel filters go) as my air filter chamber. I'll show pics when I can get out to the workshop again.
