    17" wheel sadness

    17\" wheel sadness Has anyone ever measured the run-out of their wheels? I think I'll be making a new coffee table out of my rear wheels. Bought a new set of 17" wheels because as we all know there is no high speed rubber available for 15" wheels (unless you go for bias ply racing slicks)...

    U.S. GT40 Racing Association

    Can we start one? Would there be enough interest to afford to rent tracks? We could keep it sane with a vintage racing rule. You hit someone you fix their car. Let's you race as fast as you want. You just have to be a bit more conservative in a passing situation. You can't do a NASCAR punt...

    Bump steering a lowered CAV

    Does anyone have a good solution for fixing the bump steer on a lowered CAV? The tie rod needs to be located right where the boss is located on the upright for the tie rod. Any chance of getting the factory to move that boss so the tie rod can enter from the bottom? Some guys want to go...

    ZF Repair & Rebuilding

    I'm going to make the jump into ZF repair and tweaking. Since I have rebuilt a couple dozen manual transmissions and have set up a couple dozen differentials I don't think there will be many surprises. Pinion depths, pre-loads, end-play and a real good eye for machined surface defects are...

    Pin Drive Wheel Manufacturers

    Does anyone have a compiled list of pin drive wheel manufacturers? My 15" wheels and tires are already obsolete ('cept for car shows) and I would like to fit some "Y" rated tires on the car. It's got to be 17" or more these days to get real tires. The two I know of are PS Engineering and...

    After reading about 2 cars being stolen in one week (1 Lotus & 1 GT40) I've convinced myself I need a Lojack. But a call to Lojack Central and I am told I must let some fumble fingered knumbnuts install this thing in MY car. Is there any way I can get this item and install it myself or is...

    I'm looking for the best material to use to simulate the driver's weight when setting corner weights and ride heights. Lead is toxic but easily available. Is there a better material, heavier, less toxic than lead but still affordable. Thanks in advance. Mark
