    Front License

    We have to run a front plate in Australia. Mine has been mounted on rear licence plate hinged fuel cap cover. This allows the plate to be hinged upwards, giving access, to allow the front clam retaining pins to be pulled out.

    I've had two radiator core failures on my SLC due to insufficient isolation of the radiator from the chassis. Pics of my new rubber mounting system for the end tanks included. I've now done 10,000kms with this setup including time on the track, without issue. Shroud design (1st pic is pre fan...

    Hi Bill Stuart here from Sydney Australia. I had the exact same problem with the window curvature burning my steering wheel. I was at the race track and left the SLC, with doors up, for scrutineering, came back and they told me smoke was coming from my car! It was exactly what happened to you...

    I also use the Improved Racing for the Ricardo but from memory I have the FSM-145. I mounted it on the chassis rail near where the trans cooler is installed in the side vents.

    Alpine ILX-007 - Possible SLC Stereo

    Dan, The main reason I purchased the Alpine is: - rear view camera function is compatible with existing camera - play music whilst driving - it fits in the space i have available. To be honest I’ve not even investigated whether it has an ‘accessory’ mode as it wasn’t a concern. Also, I’m...

    Alpine ILX-007 - Possible SLC Stereo

    I've purchased this Alpine unit. I'm going to attempt to retro fit it to the SLC. The pic shows how my current rear view monitor is installed between the dash and the centre console, the dimesnions of the Alpine will allow me to fit it in this space; moving the Alpine unit towards the gear...

    Scotts build thread

    Thanks for the response. I was asking if you would share the design as others might be interested in the ordering the same design? well, not in your wheel widths and thus probably wouldn't assist you with any costs saving. I might be interested in the CCW's. Would you be interested in shipping...

    Scotts build thread

    Hi Scott Really been enjoying the development of your build. are you prepared to share the wheel design you've chosen? Aren't your current wheels the 18" (front & Rear) CCW's? Does that mean the CCW's will be up for sale? cheers Stuart

    Rear window lexan

    Mine is definitely hard coated polycarbonate. Perhaps that's why it doesn't yellow. No impact from engine heat

    Twin turbo SLC half mile run

    Hey Folks thought this was rather impressive. Is it anyone on here? The paint scheme seems familiar but i don't recall anyone building a Chevy LS twin turbo SLC on this forum? It's not the one Fran built as turbos are in a different location. https://youtu.be/pOkKM4ZRvP8 cheers Stu

    New SL-C owner

    Thought I’d update this post. I’ve now thoroughly enjoyed 13,600kms (8,450 miles) of driving on the SLC. One problem I encountered is one of the lift kit connectors is made out of nylon and because of that it has started to weep the hydraulic oil. I have now replaced this with a...

    Oil cooler in/out

    Edit for above...perhaps what looks like a connection at the bottom of the engine oil cooler is actually a connection for one of the hoses coming from the top of the cooler!
