    Fat Larry's GTR Build

    I think that is the car Ron McCall built for a customer recently. The unique shifter and side mirrors come to mind.

    Just for reference......the Audi R8 has the battery in the nose and runs 2/0 cable to the engine compartment and then branches off to the starter with a 2/0 cable size.

    Anti-Lock Breaks System

    The factory race car had the Bosch ABS system I believe. I'm installing a BMW ABS system from a 2003 M3. There are a few companies selling it with a custom made wiring harness. I chose to also install the dynamic stability control system. It uses a yaw sensor and steering angle sensor. It along...

    Mounting the Superlite emblems

    Mason S did these for me...... The center cap had a slight dome shape while the emblem was flat. The second picture shows the center of the cap cut out so the emblem could lay flat to the surface.

    Racelogic TC is no longer available. I picked up a second one shortly after they decided to no longer offer it. Sometimes they are offered up on EBay. A good tip is to check out EBay (UK). They can be spotted there more often. Just make sure it's for a V8 car. If the seller is unsure then the...

    Others have successfully made a sensor mount on the CV cover. I had to mount two sensors on that side so chose my version instead. I didn't make templates for the angle brackets unfortunately. My version might be more appropriate for someone who might add a second sensor in the future. I have a...

    Metric AN fittings

    You'll be going around in circles unless you show us the exact lines you want to replace. The hoses you want to replace may not even have AN fittings. They could be hydraulically crimped custom length (made up) hoses.

    Graz Starter

    Unfortunately The engine has never been started yet. It was installed for my LS9 engine /Graz V10 transaxle for my next project. I would try one lead of a jumper cable as a temporary ground. Hook it directly from the negative battery terminal to one of the starter bolts. The Bosch starters...

    Graz Starter

    I would recommend buying a Audi R8 OEM starter first. Here is a good example .... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Audi-R8-starter-OEM-2008-2009-2010-2011-2012-2013-2014-2015-001123026/223492320986?hash=item34092e2eda:g:xJQAAOSwLnBX5DHc

    Making a dolley/engine run stand for the LS9 engine and V10 Graziano. The uprights have been welded. The two uprights on the right are for the engine. the middle two are for the adapter. The two on the left are taller for the Graziano mounting position. This will double as a engine run stand so...

    Restarting my SLC project in West Texas

    I would definitely mount your coolant surge tank higher. At the most it should be 2/3 full and should be at the highest point.

    I can also reach down to the bottom for access to the cooling and A/C lines on the other side.

    Today's job was to convert the front beer cup holders into access panels for maintenance to the door hing/strut assembly. All the items can now be removed without having to take the spyder off. Changing out a weak strut will be much easier also.

    The factory aluminum hinge plates had a design change sometime around 2015. Our earlier hinge plates had the two studs center line spaced at 1 1/4". The updated design has the studs spaced at 2.82". Mesa has the early design. The real early design (first few cars produced) were made from steel...

    Bob, how did you make the hinge plate out of 1/2" aluminum when the studs that thread into it are 1/2"? Did you use smaller diameter studs?
