    Looking for nice pictures of garages

    Will invited me over to see his SLC about 4 years ago, and despite his SLC being just about the most amazing car I've seen up close outside of race cars at Simeone or Peterson museums (notwithstanding a gash in the splitter), I was blown away by his garage even more! I vaguely remember his...

    RCR 917 builders, can you help me with something?

    Thank you Brian (and Morten who messaged me)! I went ahead and tried to model as much as I could of the RCR rear frame based on various pictures I found, along with using my imagination. I am not sure which pictures are of older revisions and which are of newer, but the design has definitely...

    RCR 917 builders, can you help me with something?

    Hello! I am currently evaluating feasibility for a project involving an RCR 917, and to check overall fitment, I am trying to mock up the RCR 917 chassis in 3D. I was able to extract what looks like a very accurate model of the body and chassis from the Assetto Corsa racing simulator, and have...

    Scotts build thread

    Okay, the Lotus lights are 4 9/16" (116mm) in diameter, and and 1 11/16" (43mm) deep, as best I can tell with a tape measure.

    Scotts build thread

    Hi Scott, I can double check when I get home, but I think the OD is 120mm. The outer halo ring has an OD of 110mm if that helps you eyeball it. Yes, the mounting is pretty simple; I think 355 and 360 lights mount exactly the same but have longer bodies. I'll get you an exact...

    Scotts build thread

    I did something something similarly inspired by the new Ford GT tail lights to my Lotus tail lights. The OE 2005 lotus tail lights are incandescent and do not look all that neat when lit up (I believe they are almost identical to Ferrari 355 and 360 tails), and I didn't want to pay $1000 for...

    Newbie here, hello and some questions

    I found their post on Facebook where they describe the crash and put up some pictures. It will definitely buff right out :). But seriously, it looks like the chassis did what it was supposed to. Makes sense, and I think I've read that is a failure point for some of the older FF cobras...

    Newbie here, hello and some questions

    Thank you! I will soon! Where in NoVA are you? Thanks! My Lotus is at ~120mm or about 4.7 inches of ground clearance, and I don't really have any clearance-related issues with anything but the steepest of driveways. That is close to the bottom of the sweet spot for geometry on that car...

    Newbie here, hello and some questions

    Hi, I've been lurking on GT40s.com for years, before I ever knew what an SLC was, but decided to break my silence today. I've been interested in building a mid-engined component car for at least 10 years. I currently own a Lotus Elise that I've completely pulled apart and put back together...
