    Fatal GT40 Accident - Please tell me this is not Toms RCR GT40

    So sorry to hear this, really enjoyed reading Toms posts he was a real clever guy and a great contributor to this forum. My heart goes out to his family, I lost my beloved mother last year when she was killed in her Porsche Boxster. I wouldn't be doing my 40 without her help after my dad passed...

    Stroker kits ..

    Ive being toying with this for a while now and sort of came to the conclusion (at the moment) to stay with stock stroke. I always fancied the 347 (much easier to come by at a good price than the 331) but read on here and other sites that its characteristics don't suite the 40 so much which being...

    Gonna do it. Lotus Esprit SBF.

    Shame you cant get hold of a AJP V8 to put in it. I had one in my TVR Cerbera and I think it was the only part of the car that didn't go wrong lol. Cracking engine went like stink, sounded good and they weigh bugger all. TVR Speed Eight engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You'll be able to get it from one of the 3 panels drawings I sent you last week, I measured the widest part of the rack from memory and used that but it will be a tight squeeze!

    To foam or not to foam...

    Hi Chris thanks for your reply (and all the others who posted). I decided against foam in the end and went with just the baffles and trap door although I would be interested in the plumbing details / hoses etc of your installation though. Cheers Jayson
