    Re: Ultimate replica

    Is this a resurrection of the Gartrac project from 30 years ago. They produced 2 chassis but they didn't sell easily because the price differential to an original car was too small; that's not the...

    Re: Tarmac Rally Stratos Build begins

    When you dyno the engine try it with and without your magnificent airbox construction and see how much difference it makes; restriction versus cool air, which will win?
  4. Re: Scheldt and Pettet Stratos where is it now?

    Talking of cheap, back in '84/5 Cf3 was for sale at the Flag showroom in Chiswick. They were asking 14k for the car plus what was described as a shed full of spares. It was fairly rough looking,...
  5. Re: Jaguar sues a bloke who build a replica - and wins!

    I had a quick read through the Swedish court decision ( translated!) and the basis of the judgement was the design was protected for 70 years after the death of the designer, deemed to be Malcolm...

    Re: Tarmac Rally Stratos Build begins

    While you're beefing things up at the front, the chassis mount for the tie bar needs reinforcing on early Spyder chassis. Of course if you are using an r/j then you have probably sidestepped this...
  7. Re: The proposed ban on the sale of new petrol/diesel cars in 2030.

    Fossil fuels will be with us for the a long time into the future because petrol/diesel are only a one part of the myriad uses that oil provides. It's often forgotten that petrol (an upper distillate)...

    Re: Tarmac Rally Stratos Build begins

    What about using GP4 twin shear type steering arms rather than a high ratio rack? I see a number of advantages; adjustability of ratio range, use of female rod ends in place of MGB tre and further...

    Re: 037 Recreation

    B series Honda engines turn counter clockwise, but they are the only modern engines I know of with that configuration - there are probably various pre-war oddities as well.

    Re: Hawk Rear Brakes

    Common fitment is the old xj6/12/xjs. I think the Girling designation is 12/3.

    Re: Stratos Transformer seeking new home

    Paula,
    Sorry for your loss. While you are dealing with this you might as well tell everybody here what those Fiats are as there are a few fans of that marque here.

    Re: Spotted On The Daily Mail Site

    It's all a bit fishy because any original '64 Cobra would have been worth substantially more than 250k in 2014, on top of which there is the question of the chassis number which is fairly easy to...

  19. Re: So.................................................................who got it?

    I've got a 3.0l 24v 164 5 speed sitting here (down the road in Holywell) that you can have for what I paid (300) ten years ago. It would need a precautionary rebuild so maybe not ideal if you...

    Chassis with a SPY prefix (manufactured by Spyder Engineering '87 to '90) have a lighter cage structure than those made by Safety Devices (1990 on) to which the cert applies. These cages don't meet...

    Re: Transformer arrives in Colchester

    Cheap solution is to fit some sort of limiting strap; a droop limiting cable from lower spring pan to chassis or (depending on spring length) tie wrap the springs to lower and upper pans.

    Re: Paint colour of Spyder chassis

    I think we offered a choice ( limited!).
    You could always ring Spyder in Peteboro', they are still in business.
