But wire wheels still look cool - and on the Corvair, they were just wheel covers...
It was that very malleability of the suspension that allowed rantinRalph to torpedo the car. Funny how one mans performance dream becomes another's responsibility absolving lawsuit.
I'm thinking that at the point a half K of horsepower is in that car, swing axles have just been outclassed and some form of upper/lower A arm system and perhaps even a zf or hewland solution needs to come into the act. The width of rubber you are going to need for that power solution is well beyond the geometry limits of the original design.
Make sure to fab a new engine cover just in case you need to slap a blower on there.
And they said the USSR was the king of the propaganda film.
Nice touch trying to tow out the AA (Corvair ??) though
Not sure that handling like an M48 is a feature though.
And still, that conspicuous absence of wire wheelcovers.:)
Funny aside there. That Ford Falcon was not nearly as bad handling as they lead on. If you knew how to really use the rudder it was diabolical fun!
Hey Magick. I meant to ask you before, do you actuall have a skidpad on site?
God that XJR5 was a beautiful car. I met her in person a few times and true to Tuluis form it was immaculate. Not the most reliable vehicle in it's class. It did however put in some rather spectacular performances. In what was I believe to be his last race with group 44 (years ago so memory being what it is) Bill Adam held of the pack for an ungodly number of laps in absolute foul rain on slicks. Amazing display of car control
Gotta love the corkscrew in a ground effect car.
Bloody Porsche 956, 80 inch wide mobile chicane
why didnt you just move out in the first place?
