    ***SOLD GT40 with Coyote 5.0 and Audi 01E build for sale ***SOLD

    Hello to all, Came to realization that I will not be able to finish this great car in a reasonable time so it's time to let another enthusiast enjoy the build. The car is about 50% done. I would say mayor work on the chassis is done. Almost a rolling chassis. Body still needs to be mounted and...

    01E Reverse Switch Connector

    If you have a Audi 01E and looking for the reverse switch connector (plug) it is a Bosch EV1 for Fuel Injectors. EBay has plenty of them, possibly local stores also. I figure I'll put it out there in case someone hits a snag during wiring. Renato

    Chassis sub forum default display options

    Every time I go to sub forum "Chassis, Brakes, Tires, &Wheels" it defaults to display from the "Last Day". Then I change it to "From Beginning" and it is fine. It does it every time I come back. None of other sub forums do that. Are my settings wrong? Renato

    Battery location

    Hi Guys, Any ideas on battery placement? It seems most of you have the battery in the back, recessed in a box. Did anyone install the battery up front between cooling pipes. Can it be done and do the advantages of better weight distribution (if any) out way the complexity of long cables? 0...

    Car Wiring Diagram Software

    I'm starting to think about wiring in the GT40. Far from completing the car but want to identify all of the components and placement of each. I would like to start on wiring diagrams of items I already know and then add as I progress with the build. The question is: what software do the big...

    Shrink tubing in stead of hose clamps?

    Guys, A friend of mine recommended shrink tubing in stead of hose clamps. These are specifically designed for pipe to flex connections. Not sure if they can be used with fuel. He uses them on cooling pipes. Any experience, thoughts on this? Renato

    Filling the chassis voids

    Is anyone filling the voids between two aluminum panels with something. My wheel wells and some other areas have panels on both sides with about 1.5 inches of space in between. My double firewall is getting hi temp heat insulation so I'm not worried there. I'm considering filling them with...

    Did anybody ever suggest having sticky's for certain tasks. I noticed different forums have all kind of task specific sticky's. Not sure if something like that would be helpful on a building forum. As an (bad) example: How to properly rivet a panel to the chassis. Or maybe how to solder or...

    Bonding spider to firewall

    Question is how to finish the connection between firewall and spider? I left a small gap and was thinking of putting a rubber gasket on the edge of panel to meet the fiberglass. Is it enough? I would like to see a more rigid connection (screw or rivet) but not sure if that would create...
