Sabre Turbo racer: 'Light Sabre'

Well, I plagiarized bits of Batmobile, bits from other cars on this forum & bits from Big Bob & my Marcos, amongst others. I think it's all very reciprocal.

My suspension mods are yet to come, which funnily enough, based on our conversations, may look similar to what you've just done.

Racing a scimitar based Formosa ?

I'm assuming you would want to race it in a classic series, as it wouldn't be competitive in an "anything goes series". In which case, it is highly unlikely you'd be allowed in. However, I don't know for sure, so your best course of action is to contact either the HSCC or CSCC. I wouldn't even try t...

551 A race oddity

What is with the mega wide centre console? I'm not quite sure what you are referring to. If it's the passenger side floor that is all at the height of the transmission tunnel, that is clearance to the exhaust, which has the muffler where a passenger usually goes. If it's the switch panel, hhen it's...

Wanted - 3.54 Crown wheel and Pinion 4ha diff

Danny has some & has all the kit to rebuild diffs, but you'd need to call him at his workshop in the New Year. His number is 01530 515300

I've installed some fancy new 360 degree interior mirror extenders to the car today, they look like they should work a treat!

SS1 Engine Possibilities

I'm told the SR20DET engine mounts are the same, same bellhousing pattern, but the engine is bulkier. So it would be a case of seeing if there are any other issues. Looking at posts on SXOC.com, the SR is a little lighter (alloy block). Scroll down to the 10th post, by "fry": https://sxoc.com/vbb/sh...
