    Scratching my head...

    Thanks Howard! It’s been a week or so since I did my first testing and now that I remember, I did torque down one of the other old adapters to this assembly and it was within spec. So it would seem I was sent a defective replacement adapter. Kim

    Scratching my head...

    OK, I found the culprit. Never assume "New" means good. Here is what I found after "blueing" the back face of the new adapter and sanding it with 600 grit sandpaper on a super flat surface. As you can see from the photo there is a low spot around 25% of the outside of the adapter. I checked...

    Scratching my head...

    Hey Randy, Yes I checked tthe run-out of the hub and it is within tolerance as well. I’m going to “blue” the bottom of the new adapter and scrub it on a flat surface with a piece of emery cloth taped to it and see if there are any high or low spots on the back face of the new adapter.

    Thanks Keith, all the drive pins are torqued equally. I will re-check the bolts that connect the rotor to the hat. All surfaces are clean and straight to the touch and eye. I have also torqued the rotor hat down to the hub without the steel Spacer plate and the results are the same as with the...

    Thanks Doc, I’ve rotated the hub to adapter 2 bolt holes which amounts to approximately 130° (because of the five bolt pattern) and reinstalled and have the same results. I’ll try rotating the adapter just one bolt hole and try that. Not hopeful however.

    Scratching my head...

    Whenever I find myself scratching my head, I go to this forum and the incredible wealth of info that you all share so graciously never fails to enlighten. I've been doing some fine tuning on my RCR GT40 and have come across an issue with brake rotor run-out. The last time I drove the car I had...

    RCR GT40 Build Questions

    I just completed my RCR GT40 build. I have 3 years and over 2600 hours invested. I did all the work myself with the exception of spraying the final color and gloss coats. I was very driven and devoted a lot of time to the build. There was a point in the build that I had to walk away for a few...

    FS USA RCR GT40 Parts for Sale...

    The half doors were sold as such, modified by RCR for more of a T top look. They were made and sold about 10 years ago and have never been used. I’m not sure if they offer them anymore. Kim

    Mk2 nostril hinges

    I have hinges that were take-offs from a New Superformance. I bought them thinking I would hinge my nostril but decided not to. Let me know if you're interested.

    Wheel Alignment Info Needed....

    So that turned out easier than expected. The Hunter rep installed a custom profile with the specs from RCR's GT40 manual and the operator gave me a printout of how far off I was. I have to say, with string lines and a laser level, I got pretty close. A little more fine tuning should get me...

    Wheel Alignment Info Needed....

    Thanks, guys. Good suggestions. I was able to contact a representative from Hunter the manufacturer of the alignment rack and he helped the operator create a custom profile using the specs from RCR. I’m doing the alignment tomorrow morning and will post how it goes.

    Wheel Alignment Info Needed....

    Hello! I want to put my RCR GT40 Widebody on an alignment rack. I did all of my alignments at home with stringlines and laser levels and am pretty confident things are close to where they need to be. A double check of my work with a real alignment rack to give me a print out would give me a...

    Avon 15-26-15 Tire Needed....

    Thanks Brian… That’s correct and Roger is who I’m using to get the new ones. He has stock on the softer compound Avon’s but I’m looking to get the harder compound for the new tires, hence the 4 month wait. The tires I have on the car now are a bit long in the tooth even though they have good...

    Avon 15-26-15 Tire Needed....

    So I lost pressure in one of my rear Avons while driving and it rendered it unusable. I'm going to order a whole new set but my supplier won't get them from England until Feb. In the mean time, does anyone have a decent used 15-26-15 Avon I can buy to tide me over until the new ones arrive? I...

    Snap Vent Placement...

    Ron, I had a feeling B wouldn't function very well, although I've seen a lot of cars with it installed there. Kim

    Snap Vent Placement...

    Thanks for your replies! It makes me more courageous to drill into the main part of the window. I'm liking position A as well, no side vision obstruction and in front of the driver and passenger for more direct air flow. My only concern with A is whether it will direct too much flow to the...

    Snap Vent Placement...

    Thanks Ryan, I have seen a lot of cars with position C and was wondering the same about obscuring side vision. It is, however, positioned to not interfere with the view of the side rear view mirrors. Kim
