    M6B Tragic

    It most certainly does, Udo has done a fantastic job. Sounds much better in the flesh as well. MKT was the best we could arrange at the time until there was track time available. Had to keep an ear on the radio for inbound aircraft :oops: Funny enough there was a solar car testing on the same...

    It was certainly a momentous day and very happy with the results, didn’t lunched the motor or any other bits… The video sound doesn’t do it justice, the whole shed was vibrating apart. Can’t wait to see Udo zipping pass at the track. Clayton

    Rear hood/clip pin locks?

    I used 1/4 turn bonnet latches from an XY GT Falcon to keep with the period look. Didn’t want anything protruding above the body line when latched. Have not had an issue with them apart from a bit of rattle. Was going to use Mini bonnet latches on both mounts, but went with the XY Falcon ones...

    fuel filling

    Hi Jim Long time, no hear. Hope all is well. I have the same issue and think it’s were the breather re-enters the fill pipe.

    SLC 24 Howard Jones

    Roger Caster plays a huge effect on roll steer in the reverse A arm, trailing link suspension like the original GT40’s From memory, they ran 7 degs and on my RF40 I ended up with 3.5 degs to minimise the roll steer the best. Not sure if caster would have much of an effect on an A arm with toe...
