    Front bearing adjustment

    Hi Chris, Just seen your post about bearings.. Superformance has undersized front and rear bearings so you'll have to replace or adjust them frequently. There's no problem for US roads but as you know on European roads with many curves and sometimes bumps/holes, bearings suffer on GT40...

    When you come here, use a coyote or Waze, they are very useful tools !! To avoid mobile trap never drive on motorways or major roads, only drive on small roads which are very nice with GT40 or Cobra (plenty of curves, cross of beautiful typical villages, nice restaurants,...). Of course it's...

    What Size CR6ZZ AVONs are you running?

    Hi Gary, I run 215 Front and 295 Rear. Very good tires on GT40 (best ?). This tires are used here in europe by every historic racing cars meaning that they are very good on roads and race tracks. Be careful with 225: I've tried 225 on my SPF and the car was a bit higher on the front (bad...

    Tim don't forget to install the Quaife oil pump at the rear of the gearbox... or in 6500/7000 miles you'll have to replace the crown wheel + pinion (3500$) I had the problem.... (thanks Quaife !) OliveR
