    Re: RCR40 0046 for sale The buyer is not what I would call computer literate! But I am going to try to stick around and post updates as I get them.

    J. Salmon RCR-40 Build

    SOLD! End of an 9 year+ era for me. I just want to take a post and thank everyone from Ron to all the members for making this entire experience even possible. No way I could have done it alone. Such great folks here, such incredible talent. My car is headed to a very worthy new owner...

    J. Salmon RCR-40 Build

    Mark, I never spent much time with it on track. I did not have a rear roll bar, and I feel the understeer was pretty significant with the front bar in place. It also seemed to keep the front end from being quite as smooth. The car doesn't have a lot of suspension travel, and the center of...

    RCR40 0046 for sale *SOLD*

    Re: RCR40 0046 for sale Hey Steve, in VA you can register as year it emulates, and this is what I did. So it is registered as a 1965. Generally I think that makes it easier to get things done in most states. Seems it's always a bit of a pain to get the i's dotted and t's crossed with these...

    RCR40 0046 for sale *SOLD*

    Re: RCR40 0046 for sale I have had a few calls looking for low prices, and I would only say that it's not yet a fire sale, and if I can't sell this car in 2016 during the 50th anniversary with all of the hoopla that Ford is going to be doing... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dybDQgugbE0

    It's Official - New GT

    The most inspiring part of the new GT is that it appears Ford started this process a long time ago, and the plan has been to win LeMans in class the first outing at the 50th. And if they can do that - which is no mean feat - it won't matter if the GT is powered by a family of lemmings. At...

    J. Salmon RCR-40 Build

    Mark, No, and actually, I recently undid the front sway bar. Originally I thought the car would need the anti-sways and I was concerned it would be scary tail-happy without some front bar to dial in some understeer. I think the car really feels more alive with the front bar unhooked. There...

    RCR40 0046 for sale *SOLD*

    Re: RCR40 0046 for sale Mark, It took a great deal of planning and work to get the Ricardo in there, it is a tight fit. But the results were worth it to me. It really is the reason for the engine selection, as it is more compact than the Ford motors. (That and I believe if you want an...

    RCR40 0046 for sale *SOLD*

    Reluctantly selling 7 years of work, RCR 0046. This is a unique build, please see build thread here: http://www.gt40s.com/forum/gt40-build-logs/24421-j-salmon-rcr-40-build.html In a nutshell, I built this car to be a great driving GT40 replica with modern performance but 1966 aura. All...

    New GT?

    I would think the 500+ hp GT350 motor would suit the purpose just fine. Or you could have two models, one with that and one with the supercharged plant from the expected GT500.

    Jason's Coyote Powered RCR40 Downunder

    I did a similar modification to my cage also, but I am getting ready to delete the front portion of the cage. Despite a 6-point harness super tight, I can still just get my head to touch the front hoop (the center is not a problem). Granted, that is with dual density foam, but I think on the...

    J. Salmon RCR-40 Build

    Dare I say... I think it's done! It took a custom heat shield and header wrap, but the transaxle is now happy. I had no idea how much the front clip moved about until I added some additional fasteners to keep it from wobbling. It's almost too little drama: it's starts and runs smooth...
