that looks to be going very well in the footage, nice one.We scrounged the Chevy LS6 5.4 L from the guy that did the exhaust system, then found some CNC machined heads for it and with that came the Edelbrock dual plane intake and MSD topped by a Holley 650 DP race carb (no Choke)inc. 1" spacer. Had to unload the "winged" Corvette sump for a Camaro one, then added an oil cooler and Accu sump --thats it, all bone stock, dyno tuned with 405 hp at the wheels .
We are using a 930 Porsche Trans that came with the kit from RCR which is coupled to the motor by a standard "BNC Products" adapter kit and custom hydraulic clutch actuation unit .
* Drive line is standard 930 CVs and custom length axles
* Wheel hubs are all Corvette C4
* AVO shockers adjustable bump and rebound
* 650 Lb springs front and 550 Lb rear
* 7/8"dia. sway bar front and 5/8"dia bar rear
* PWR ally radiator
* Willwood brakes 6 piston F & 4 R, Hawk pads
* Tilton pedals
* Wheel alin'm't-- F 3°camber, ~=6°caster, 1mm toe in
R 2° camber ? caster , neutral toe ?
Its brilliant at cornering and we haven't dialed in or fine tuned anything yet
The whole package just seems to be ideal, as is
Gear ratios --1st too low, 2nd low, 3rd just right, 4 th a bit tall, I think
Good luck at the UTTC Ron --we'll be watching with much interest:thumbsup:
I think the bodies are pretty close as the moulds I have are the original Heritage moulds from the UK, and at some point in time the previous owner , Bob Usher Sparks had some business relationship with Andy Burrows of GD
I also have wider rear flares available for the big wheel brigade...
These really are pretty little cars....
again very similar here, we set mine up with a laser floor leveller, some pads and string, pencil and paper! :laugh:Ron, It sure is a fun thing to drive, just point and shoot --absolutely no under steer or push and no over steer -- guess that means drive faster then.
What spring Lb'age are you running , tyre pressures, sway bars?
And don't heed my setting figures too much yet as they were only done with a spirit level,straight edge and calculator:blank:
i think i would also end up with much higher rate springs if mine were raced, at the minute 500lb front is a bit soft and it does dive a little, i can see much harder rate springs working for track use, mine are based on road springs and road ride heights as a bit of a compromise.Our first two track outings were done with springs in the 400 lb range. These were too soft for sure.
Our last testing round was done with some 650 lb front springs and some 550 lb rear springs. Front bar about 7/8" or 1" in diameter, no rear bar. The car was doing well but we had two problems:
*Rear ride height was too high and was causing the lower radius rod to contact the chassis thus lifting a wheel. It also creates higher than I'd like half shaft angles.
*F/R brake bias was incorrect with too much rear braking action.
We've corrected these two problems. We also have some stiffer springs that we can try if we wish, some 1000 lb front springs and 850 lb rear springs. We're setting the car back up over the next week and we'll see what we have.
You can't Chris, that's what I want to do. - CANAM style, track only car. When I get the GT40 and the Daytona sorted that is. I am still undecided on GD or RCR T70. And I really like the mk2 body from Toluka lake motorsports too.Wide rear flares eh, hmmmm --- might have to go again for mk2 thinking more CanAm, 14" slicks, LS7 Kinsler stacks, got a trans and a few other bits lying around (just dreamin' ):laugh:
i have been out in the LS7 powered GD T70 which was to be honest a bit mental, with kinsler throttle bodies and nearly 700bhp. :thumbsup:+1 -- Mk2 spyder body, RCR chassis, proper lola wheels, Chev Ls 6 or 7 - Kinsler stacks , 930 modded short shift dog box or G50 or ZFQ or Hewland sequential.
If I was to do anothery this would be the basic spec
Now is the time to buy Rick, cause of the strong Au$$ie
The open top s/b good in SC from June/JULY - SEPTEMBER/October;Great vid, that guy is hauling a**, boy coming up on painfully slow traffic at those speeds AAAhHHHh. Very easy to have one of them step in the way and ruin your life. Too ifffy for me.
The open top Lolas rock, if I had a track only car it would be topless.
