    What size rotors?

    I know there are those that say, bigger is better. Talking to Ian at CAV Canada, he has mentioned that on my CAV, I can upsize my rotors to either 12" or 13". He did mention that going to a 13", though will fit under the 17" rims, may rob horsepower due to weight. I do track this car, just...

    Here is a link to a car that I came across that has something that I havn't seen before. It appears to be some kind of cable accuated shifter for the ZF 5 speed. I wonder if the shifting would be faster as you still need to use the clutch. AutoTrader Classics - 1966 Ford GT40-Replica Coupe...

    Facet Fuel Pumps

    Why would CAV install Facet Fuel Pumps which flows 35 GPH when most engines we will put into these machines require closer to 100GPH?

    Fuel Volume to Webers question

    I had the GT40 at a dyno a few weeks ago. It really leaned out badly above 4250 rpm. I didn't have my extra jets thinking that I needed larger jets. A thought came to mind which was that maybe I didn't have enough fuel flow to the carbs. I just tested the regulator and it was set to 2 lbs...
