    Gtforte front wishbones help

    Southern GT supplied my replacement front wishbones for a Tornado chassis which as far as I know are the same geometry as the GT forte. Might be worth a chat with AK Sportscars (New owners of Southern) as they may have the jigs to make them.

When they are pushed back hard against the bellhousing you should have a sleeve around the input shaft that the bearing slides back and forth on. There isn't...

    UN1 Gearbox Issue

    I did once have a similar problem with the bolts that hold the bell housing onto the box that were interfering with the diff - not all of them are the same length. The other thing to check is that your driveshaft cv bolts aren't too long and catch the side case of the box too.

    Door sealing issues at high speed? Design flaw?

    This is the same problem 40s have, air rushing over the screen creates a low pressure area above the door tops which causes lift. On a normal car with standard roof you'd never notice it. Simply lower pressure above the door than below it.

    Renault UN1 output shaft issue

    i have seen play there before when the splines have some wear on them - drain the oil and then pull the adaptors, see if the diff is actually moving as it definately shouldn't.

    Coolant Flush / Replacement

    I found that with 50/50 antifreeze mix that the ally radiator slowly gets disolved - you'll get a little leak at the edges of the core that progressively gets worse. Also the inside of anything ally in the system is getting severly corroded. Swapping to the Evans waterless should stop this as...
