    Donations for Roaring Fourties Legal Fees

    Ron: I'm in...as long as you are still on Loch Pointe Dr where I'll be sending the check because I'm to "computer challenged" to try Pay Pal. Using the word 'fortunate' in this situation is awkward, but I think that all of the forum members believe that our RF Mates are extremely fortunate to...

    GT40 in Cannonball - Buzz Clarke CAV

    Ron, the results of the CAV in the Cannonball are that we survived (even though missing 3 events do to an intake gasket), and are looking forward to next year with your car in the competition. AutoFutura gave us some technical support on Roll Center work so I'd like to thank them first. We all...

    Hilborn Fuel Injection

    Michael: I ran a Hilborn on my CAV GT last year in the Cannonball One Lap...750 miles average driven per night between racetracks for the first seven nights, one track event in the morning and one track event in the afternoon each day. Pack up and hit the road at 5:00PM to drive the 750 miles...

    Dream Cars 101

    Ron: Yes I'll be in the same CAV GT as last year. I got a trophy for Best Rookie Finish. What a saga!! This year we are ahead of schedule with the cars changes and prep. You have a PM about raising money. Thanks for the encouragement. Regards, Buzz

    Dream Cars 101

    CAV is a South African produced GT40. The majority of the 100 cars that they have produced have been stainless steel monoque chassis. They are considered "Turn Key Minus" cars in that the complete car is built in the South African facility, and shipped to the US dealer network for the final...

    OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

    Bob: I echo Joseph's sentiments. I think all of the CAV owners feel the same about the key part your knowledge, professionalism, and integrity played in guiding their GT40 decisions. I know that I for one could never have completed the Cannonball Race without your help in those frantic last...

    CAV--Autofutura

    Veek: The community aspects of this forum are great. In the last week I've spoken to Ian who is going to make a modification for me that he has engineered to improve the linkage setup on my ZF CAV. Frank Catt in England wants to get me a chassis piece he is working on to stiffen the rear...

    ZF Easy In & Out Modification

    Bob: I love the safety net made out of tape. When I said you could swing the ZF in and out in ten seconds if you dropped the nut I was still mocking up on the floor. I forgot about the reality of lining things up. I'm envisioning a replacement for your tape in the form of a 1.5 inch wide...

    ZF Easy In & Out Modification

    David: I'll take it that your 'pirating' is flatery of the mind. (That's your flatery of my mind.) Enjoy! Tim: I have never been able to live with only one car in my life, even though I have intimately known a 206 Dino, a twin turbo NSX, and the CAV GT40. I am sure it is a character flaw. That...

    CAV fuel pump in cell

    Gary: The key word was 'their' in the last sentence of the first paragraph. But they (as in 'their') don't want to be talking about other manufacturers cells. Can we change the subject? Regards, Buzz

    CAV fuel pump in cell

    Gary: ATL has a policy for liability purposes of not working on cells from other manufacturers. They understandibly refused any help or interest a number of times. In the end, they did not do any work on my cell. I did all the work and installation of their swirlpot, fuel pump, fuel filter, and...

    ZF Easy In & Out Modification

    Re: ZF Easy In & Out Modification Things look tight, but they are really easy. If you drop the nut it takes ten seconds to swing the ZF out, grab the nut, and ten more to line up the studs and try again.

    ZF Easy In & Out Modification

    We made the stud to fit the 10mm x 1.5 thread in the ZF, but we made the other end a 3/8 x 24 fine thread. The small head (7/16) of the self locking jet net allows me to use a 7/16 small ratchet box wrench with 4 clicks per throw inside the machined slots, and it clears the headers easily. You...

    ZF Easy In & Out Modification

    A further close-up shows that the only machining work came straight down from above to give access to the area. The ZF has not been modified, and the shadow of the 10mm allen bolt seating area shows no change to the bellhousing surfaces or thickness.
