    Lift kit problems

    I am using Ramlift pro lift kit front and back. Rear is ok. But on the front i am having problems achieving correct ride height. I have even fitted 3 inch springs to try and get the ride height low enough (about 4.5 inches) but can‘t get any lower than 5.3 inches ride height with it wound all...

    Thanks Eddy. Need to push the bottom out a touch for the camber so have to use the lower arm to adjust.

    Adjusting rear camber

    Guys , how are we supposed to adjust the rear camber? I understand that it is the single rose joint nearest the chassis that must be adjusted but I can’t even get a spanner in three for the backing nut. Do I need to remove it all, guesstimate an adjustment and put it all back together again...

    Roll Cage question .......

    Also you can see how the ‘X’ frames in way of the door openings sure up the front vertical bars. The problem with ’bolt in’ roll cages is that they have no support in that direction and any accident from the front or side will force those tubes into the occupants. I can’t see clearly how that...

    Roll Cage question .......

    From the various reading and photos of accidents involving GT40’s with roll cages I made the decision and removed mine from my build. It’s simply too close for comfort for my liking. Aside from the danger posed by the proximity of the roll cage bars to the occupants heads, the bolt on type of...

    Roll Cage question .......

    Man you need to speak with is Frank Catt...... Also as MarkR mentioned there may be some limited metalwork embedded in the spider (depending on whose it is) and if there isn’t it may be quite easy yo do it yourself once the body with windshield is in position.

    Wheel single central nut / spinners - correct tightening direction

    Hi guys, apologies if this has been done to death already but I’d like to start with a clean slate as I am getting conflicting advice from various ‘experts.’ what is the correct direction of tightening for the single central wheel nuts / spinners? Is there a right and wrong way or is it a grey...

    Roll Cage question .......

    Unfortunately that's the truth but also that the unsightly safety cell is inherently dangerous to the occupants because of the proximity to their heads. There must be another way of solving this, maximum safety for the occupants (without the risk of hitting their heads on the roll cage even in...

    Roll Cage question .......

    Neil I can see that in the lower forward parts where your cage connects to the chassis it is seriously beefed up and well planted with a cross member and gussets. That's the issue with a lot of the ones that are only bolt on in those locations, without additional cross members and...

    Roll Cage question .......

    the proximity of the roll bar tubes to your head is the main danger and second is the deforming of the roll cage structure in an accident which then either pins down the occupants or hurts them (or both) ....... Is that it? have I missed something? I am on the lookout for a solution like I...

    Roll Cage question .......

    Agreed. For me at least it's made me take a step back from my build and consider how best to proceed. For the duration of my build I will remove the roll cage. I will beef up the engine bulkhead. I was already decided to place additional struts (one either side)art of the bulkhead to add...

    Roll Cage question .......

    Guys, is there a real cause for concern that the roll cages may actually inflict heavy injuries on the occupants if involved in a road accident (i.e. without wearing helmets)? I know there is a requirement for the roll cages for racing and track use but then we wear helmets. But can the roll...
