    Mufflers or Megaphones?

    I don't have megaphones, although would like to try them or straight pipes at the track. I run with the standard mufflers and they are loud enough for the street, really quite loud if you get on it, and not too bad inside the car, however I do wear noise cancelling ear buds on longer drives. I...

    Newer Car GT40 branded caliper brake pads

    Richard, I took a look at the posts from your acquisition of the car. Great choice BTW ;) Thinking about your use, I thought you might like to consider a turkey pan set up to to minimize the fuel boiling potential in those webers and to shield that crossover fuel line. Here's what I did. I...

    Newer Car GT40 branded caliper brake pads

    Neil, I feel about a million years away from any comparison to JWAE and their challenges and achievements on the track, but appreciate the historical connection. Dave has answered the pads question, thanks.

    Newer Car GT40 branded caliper brake pads

    Dave (and others), thanks for the prompt. The track days were great. For me and the car, as much about sorting as performance, this was very first time out in anger. A number of things came up that required dealing with and have me started on a new ToDo list. Before I get to the brakes...

    Rear Wheel Bearing adjustment

    Having done a lot of research on this site about the bearing adjustments on these cars, and frankly being highly intimidated by the whole process, I thought I would share my experiences. My car is #2388, delivered to me late fall last year, just as the snow settled in. I started to drive and...

    Newer Car GT40 branded caliper brake pads

    I have a newer car, #2388, sequence 339. I have the GT40 branded calipers. I'm assuming they are the same as the old Wilwoods and use the same brake pads. But you know what they say about assuming. Does anyone happen to know if they are the same as the old setup and only new graphics...

    P2251 questions

    Eric, I have a RHD MkI in Gulf Livery (per my avatar). New to me and am only now getting it out after the MidWest thaw. Happy to provide what limited info I can on the car I have. I did recently get a set of 17's with Michelins per Ron's note. I plan to use the AVONS on the track and for...

    Street Driving

    Sorry to hijack, Bill, curious. What's your rear view cam solution. type, location, etc? Eric, I plan to drive a lot on the road, but as my car is new and there is still salt on my roads, I can't be of much help yet. Like you I have logged many 10's of thousands of miles in my Cobras. And...

    GT40 in Peterson Museum Vault

    OK, I stand corrected, thanks Rick. I know that when the many, many photo's of 1075 were taken for the Superformance Tool Room edition, that photo shoot happened in the Petersen vault.

    I believe that's where the most famous 1075 lives.

    Good to see so much inventory in the finishing area at Superformance. I was lucky enough to see my car being completed at the factory and there were a lot less cars in that part of the shop in April 2018. Your car is looking great.

    License Plate Solutions

    Time and the temperature gauge will tell. As soon as we get above freezing and the salt is off the roads, I'll report back. Overheating is about the furthest thing from my mind right now. Brrrrr

    Looking great. I jumped in a time machine and received P2388 late last year. Once the paint photos arrive it gets real.
