    Who's car is this?

    Hi Bud, I can say for sure that I was at GTD when Bud's car was packed and sent to the states. It was indeed 89, there was another fella that had two shipped to Florida Jeff White I think his name was. The car still looks great Bud, You wouldnt think it was 18 years old! Did you ever...

    Hi Chris, I have to say what a great job you have done. The car is looking fantastic. Its also good to see the car from a longer shot now you have the covers and windows in and the mods to the rear tail and lights done. It really has moved on since I saw it last year, Im very impressed...

    MDA history ?

    Hello guys, I find the only true source of information for any GT40 product is to talk directly to the manufacturers themselves. There are customers with kind words and in truth most are biased towards the particular car they are building. MDA have made more changes to its chassis and...

    MDA MkII series II chassis

    Some of the points above are clearly well made and I do not wish to labour the point on Steves build thread but I feel it necessary to reply to the above for the last time on this thread. I have apologised to Steve on behalf of all of us and wish him all the best with his build and hopefully...

    MDA MkII series II chassis

    I had responded in friendly terms to Chris Melia’s extraordinary posting but in response to his continuous slander it is obviously necessary to be blunt:- MDA utterly refute Chris Melia’s serious allegation of theft. The MDA MkII rear clip is a product wholly from MDA design work and...

    Calling MDA Owners

    Re: Calling MDA Owners(poor souls) I rarely post on this forum as I find it a little one sided at times. Though this latest ill feeling from one of our clients seems to need a response. For future reference, I dont not view this website often, in fact it is the first time in a year. Therefore...

    GT Mk1 aerodynamics

    Now Now you two, stop mucking about!! Malcolm is right, if you go fast enough ie 130 plus and the wind is just right it will hover above your head like a empty take away carton! Then It will flutter gently sideways and then smash itself to pieces on the ground! But if really unlucky, i cant...

    Lola T-70 replica

    Hi guys, Oh dear oh dear. There are a few misinformed people out there and I think some record straightening is in order.. firstly. specialised Mouldings are not the only people with a set of moulds. There are four sets that I know of. There are two makers of tubs and the later will supply to...

    Top Gear - Clarkson drives the new GT

    Hi all, Brett are you being a little dynamic tonite? But that is a good point that David raised: Because the steering wheel is on the "wrong side" as he put it, how will it meet our new legislations? Realistically if the GT went through an SVA test it would fail miserably.. There are sharp...

    GT Mk1 aerodynamics

    Hi Guys, theres my car again! Nice Photo Julian! The Splitter Chris made for the black car is simple, but effective.Like Malcolm says above another mod is to dam the air through the rad so that it exits right into the Single vent and upwards over the front end. As most of the English guys will...

    Semi Monocoque anyone?

    AS I stated on the first posts: It needs an amount of engineering to make it work. It does look ok, the ally is all NS4 aircraft spec, but the whole thing needs looking at. Begginers need not apply!! This is a seasoned pro job only... It has sponsons in the fuel cell area and a degree of...
