    RCR GT40 shifter connection to Trans

    We recently changed our trans from the RBT to a Quaife QBE62G 5-Speed. Can anyone shed some light on what is needed to hook up the RCR GT40 shifter box to this transmission? I'm assuming we need different brackets, linkage or maybe a different shifter box? Haven't been able to get ahold of...

    O2 Sensor Location?

    We have designed and ordered all the material to fabricate the headers for the Coyote. My question is…how sensitive is the O2 sensor signal, relative to the adjacent bend? For wire routing I would really like to position them after the collector, but we have a bend an inch beyond the bung...

    Fillmore’s RCR Mk1 GT40

    Finally cut away enough of the rear clip inner structure to improve the body alignment at the rockers. With it closed in position, I then riveted aluminum plates over the seam. After confirming it opened and closed smoothly, I then removed the rear clip and re-glassed the seam from the inside.

    Fillmore’s RCR Mk1 GT40

    I designed and fabricated new rear clip hinges, taking ideas from what others have done. Highly recommended…robust, opens and closes smoothly and very easy to take off and put on by yourself. The 4 individual stanchions make it easy to shim and make the pivots parallel. For final assembly, I...

    Coyote Engine Choice?

    We opted for a Coyote with an InnoV8 8 stack in our RCR Mk1 GT40. I put a Coyote in my FFR 33 Hot Rod build and it's the best performing, and most straight forward install that I have ever done! I used a Ford Racing Controls pack, basically hooked up one wire and started the engine. I did...

    GT40 Induction system?

    The InnoV8 “8 stack” Coyote setup came with a nice, carbon turkey tray. After we installed the rear clip and cut out the opening, I was surprised how well it fit. The only modification needed is to trim ~3/4” off the tray and maybe add some sort of seal. But I noticed others with 8 stacks...

    RCR GT40 Rear Clip Width

    Has anyone had issues with the rear clip width of a RCR40? Mine is about 1 ½” wider than the rockers where they meet. I have the alignment pins in place, but the body is too stiff to force it back into position. I started relieving the inner structure to allow more compliance but so far...

    Fillmore’s RCR Mk1 GT40

    In late November 2019, I started working on the GT40 again in earnest. The first step was to tackle the chassis modifications that we had been contemplating since we first tried to fit the Gen-2 Coyote engine. The engine was very close to fitting the chassis; however, it would require solid...

    Fillmore’s RCR Mk1 GT40

    My name is Tim Collins. I’m building an RCR 40 for my buddy Chris Fillmore. We picked up most of the Mk1 kit, which is only a short drive across town, in October 2018. Over the next several months we procured the Coyote engine and started assembling the chassis. Then in the spring of 2019...
