    Where does everyone live?

    I am in the wonderful suburb of Snellville just the other side of Stone Mountain and north east of Atlanta. John Runyun and I are fairly close!

    DRB GT40 owners.

    I have to agree with you. I think the car is definitely strong. The plates in the frame definitely strengthens the setup. The manual was of little use. My purchase was second hand and the previous owner knew little if any about how to build the car. Everything was off. The brakes were old...

    Street Driving

    I have a post in Larry's second listing.I use the Sony Board camera mounted on some Lexan at the top back of the cabin. This is a 1080P camera and cost less than $50. I have it hacked into a Tadi Bros. unit that displays up to 4 cameras. I also have two of their side mounted cameras(striped down...

    Layout question

    Ian, My DRB from Australia was not built there and was completely stripped of the previous owners attempt at building, converted to Left hand drive and many under finished parts replaced with parts that would standup to racing needs. The battery is in the front compartment in front of the...

    A question you will rarely hear about a GT40 !

    I have been to many "car shows"(upwards of 50+) and that questions comes up a lot. As many will ask what it is? Mine was on display at the Atlanta International Auto Show for two years in a row(won't be any more as a change in management). I think this is a better sampling of the public as this...

    Just a building update.

    Hershal, How and where are your stainless pieces to be located? I put a lot of stainless pieces on my car. Made a big difference in the car. Might be able to give some pointers or answer some questions. Bill

    FAV Pale Green color match

    When I was repainting my car, due to an accident that fractured the rear fenders several years ago, I sought out the paint codes for Linden Green and was highly disappointed. Glescoe "wouldn't" give me the codes and the Anglia Ford group in England wouldn't/couldn't supply me with the paint as...

    Tornado GT40 in Texas

    Bob, Just came across your pot on the rear camera. I knew that the higher the camera the better the view. I added a small Sony camera that is just a computer chip and a lens. It does however come with an accessory cable and port that allows you to alter 10 to 15 perameters of the camera. It is...

    Forum rules....

    Fran, Couple of weeks ago, I ran into a guy who "supposedly" has possession of most if not all of the "Fast and Furious" cars. He has a shop in Lilburn Ga. and is trying to recreate several of the cars. I don't have his contact information but would like to contact him. Any help you could supply...

    DRB#5 goes to the movies

    I think the starter issue(s) are a thing of the past, and yes the color is Linden Green. Thanks to Andrew who supplied me with a sample from an original, and a little luck with Ebay. Gave it to my paint shop and they mixed some that was a perfect match to Andrew's sample. John lets make that...

    DRB#5 goes to the movies

The notorious starter has raised its head again costing me a 5th(you read that right) ring gear and starter. The starter manged to break a collar mount. This was sent back to HiTorque for repair. Three...

    power steering ?

    Way back when in 2012 I posted info on a unit that Kieth Stafford and I collaborated on that went into my 40. If I remember correctly Kieth ran an electronics outfit in Ireland, and we came up with a unit that would work nicely. Look up DRB#5 and go to page 9. I believe and it makes mention of...

    GT40 driving

    NickF, The learning curve for me was pretty simple. I had owned only front engined cars so I knew how they handle, and quite frankly I had heard more horror stories of Cobras "loosing it" more than with 40s. With the almost even weight distribution the handling is easier(for me anyways). My...
