    Different engines

    I’m just interested to know what (if any) different engines people have put in their cars. I guesss the Ford family must be in the vast majority of cars, but has anyone gone for a completely unusual choice? BMW, LEXUS etc? Just interested. Simon

    Anybody have a line on which and how many original GT40s (or cars pretending to be original) will be racing this year? Will there be a paddock for GT40 street cars? Hope to see some of you there! :thumbsup:

    GTR - not sure I belong here

    Hi all, Fran was kind enough to give me a tour of his place and the cars a while back. Not sure if I drooled more from the finished cars or the manufacturing side of things. I fear I might fall into the category of "If you need an instruction manual, you shouldn't be building one of these...

    Graziano gearing - part two

    It's been about a year since I started offering drop gears for the Graziano (Graziano Gearing and Drop Gears) - multiple installs and feedback has been great from those who have driven cars with them installed. The one shortcoming of the 1.038 set, however, was the lack of a true overdrive gear...

    Question of wheel size and brakes that'll fit........

    I'm in the planning stages of building a GT40. One of the things that has come up is the wheel diameter. I'm thinking of building a car from Active Power Cars and they use Corvette C5/C6 suspension pieces and brakes. I've seen that the factory size rotors are 12.6" on the front and 11.8" on...
