    Audi 01E Main Case

    Hey guys, not as bad as originaly thought, the supporting bolts holding the side cover plate where the diff housing is had come loose which allowed oil to escape which made it look like the case had split, so it looks like all is needed is to realign the diff and tighten the bolts. Looks like...

    Need help to import

    I have never given it much thought of what goes into shipping and what wasted air is worth, I guess that why IKEA is doing well as there is no wasted space when all their products are designed aand packaged into flat packs to reduce wasted space. I have the boys at touring car spares giving...

    Bob's RF40MKII #134

    Earlier this year I decided to upgrade all the rose joints to chrommoly billet ones with teflon inner bushes. WHAT A MISTAKE. On my way to pick up a groom to take him to his wedding, the lower A arm rosejoint on the passengers side (left) broke in half while going over a small bump. Luckely...

    Bob's RF40MKII #134

    Hi Mudgey, The only time I have had it logged is when we were dynoing the car. It was a 22deg C day and the average inlet temps were 11deg C with a peack of 16deg. When we hit full throtle, the AC cuts out and robs no power from the motor. The tank is big enough to supply the intercooler with...

    Tilton Carbon Clutch

    I've had some long talks with Jim Berry as he seems to be the #1 clutch guy in Aus. He came very highly recomended by a number of different sources including Chris (Flatchat). He's a very clued up guy with over 35 years in the racing industry. The old clutch, flywheel and input shaft have all...

The transaxle to crankshaft is aligned using a dial indicator and from memory the reading was 0.09mm (0.0035")of missalignment and tilton indicates no more than 0.25mm (0.010"). Spud, the clutches which I have been using are a single 9.5" in diameter with a clamp force of...

    Tilton Carbon Clutch

    I've just gone through another clutch and I need to address this problem once and for all. The clutches which I have been using are said to be rated at 800hp to 1,000hp (which I think is bulls##t) and no mention of their torque rating. What I'm looking at is going to a twin or tripple Tilton...

    Ideas for Completing the Rear Undertray

    Hey Bernie, I have received your PM and I can still email you some more info or photos if you require. I needed to take the rear panel off to get to the gearbox as I was left stranded on the weekend because some lazy bum decided to install a pin in the selector shaft which was too short and it...

    Ideas for Completing the Rear Undertray

    Hey Bernie, Here's a photo of the rear of the car, (that's all I can find at the moment) it's not the best shot and I'll take some shots tomorrow during the day. The diffuser was designed using a program (?) that helps design airflow around the car and undercarrige. My mechanic got one of his...

    16th Aussie Cobra Nats

    Hey Chris, did you go to the Sunday night dinner? I missed out as it was rainning and I left early to drive the 40 back to Sydney while there was some daylight left. Wise move as I blew a fuse on the way home and had no lights.

    O1E 6 speed

    I have an O1E in my car which makes over 700hp at the rear tyres. The box holds up very well with the only sign of stress was the gearbox mounts tearing which we have upgraded since. One thing I did find is that the box didn't like changing gears above 6 grand but that could have been the oil...
