    Driving impression - difference between RF1 and RF2?

    Hi, I've done some online searches and haven't come up with a clear picture about what was re-engineered from the old RF to the new RF, other than replacing the cast front uprights with newly manufactured ones. Is there much of a change to the feel of the car (and do those with earlier cars...

    RCR T70 weight vs RCR GT40 ?

    Fran, have you had a chance to weigh the body/chassis units of both cars to have an idea of what the finished weight difference may be. I've heard the T70 body design could allow it to be quite a bit lighter than the GT40.

    More leg / headroom in GT40 or De Tomaso ?

    While I'm aware of 6ft plus drivers fitting in GT40s with the help of adjustable pedal boxes, dropped floor, no seat runners etc, space is realistically pretty tight. Do the Panteras offer more or less leg and head room? I've been offered one for a price that's hard to refuse, and I'm...

    Saw my first Lola T70 last weekend !!! Shame it crashed....

    The annual historic race meeting was held at my local racetrack last weekend. The highlight was undoubtedly the appearance of a Lola T70. I've always wondered how they'd look (and sound) blasting around a racetrack, and now I know. I WANT ONE !!! In the last race, the owner spun the car in a...

    Safir have trumped FoMoCo....

    This may be old news, but a magazine today mentioned that Ford cannot call their new car the GT40, as Safir in Ohio have had the trademark for "GT40" for the last few years. Apparently, Ford have not even offered to buy back the trademark off Safir.... Any further info about this crazy...

    I've found a cheap RF GT40 - can you U.S. guys legally drive a RHD GT40 replica?

    I\'ve found a cheap RF GT40 - can you U.S. guys legally drive a RHD GT40 replica? The reason I ask is that a beautiful factory assembled Roaring Forties car has been advertised in a magazine that came out TODAY at a big discount to his previous asking price. I've seen the car at a Sports Car...
