Thread: Kit 075 Restart

    My uncle is an avid enthusiast and lives in the LA area. He came to visit this week and drove my 33. He has driven in competitive motorsports for nearly 50 years including all manner of road racing and served as an HPDE instructor, or the equivalent for years. He currently has an all out BMW Track car, a Ferrari Spider, and a TT Porsche. His comments on the 33 were very favorable although there was no place he could really get it up to potential.

    I agree with Mich, that sounds great.

    So how did it feel to be sitting in the passenger seat this time?

    With him driving it was a great feeling, chance to look and listen to things and get his opinion.

    Hope mine sounds that good!

    Are you using FFR mufflers?

  7. #207
    No sir on FFR mufflers. Probably should have used them. My SBC conversion was purchased initially in 2009. The motor mounts were designed for a Ford motor. A good deal of the setup was fabricated. The original kit owner put together a really cool set of roomies with HD MC mufflers in the tubes. Zoomies would not clear my driveway so needed an exhaust. Had a custom shop fabricate the entire system including modifying the header collectors. The whole system has T flange connectors.

    They should have put the zoomies just over the bottom frame rail.

    WRP,

    Do you by chance have any video with the Zoomies on your car? I would love to hear how they sound.

    Going over the body very carefully trying to clean and repair surface damage. Do you wet sand the Gel Coat?

    I see 217 posts going all the way to the beginning and recent cruises. Not that I can help you, but what is missing?

    Was reasonably sure there were a few posts between 07-14 and now. Not a problem, just wondered if I had posted something that broke a rule

  20. #220
    Having followed your threads intently, I think that's extremely unlikely

    I guess I have been so caught up in this 4 Link and axle tube business I just haven't posted anything

    Bill, I noticed on the Facebook Group site, some of your posts have the message: "This attachment may have been removed or the person who shared it may not have permission to share it with you."

    So dedicated the weekend to sorting out the pinion angle and four wheel alignment. We've got everything pretty close, close enough to call it a success.

    Bald Head got tired of the sun, got tired of tripping over it, iPhone overheating in the sunlight, AFR LMII overheating in sunlight. The rest of you make it look so easy. Just told my wife to hold my beer and watch this

    Very nice! I bet I STILL can't fit in it!

    We could cut a hole in the roof like Jaws had on the James Bond movies

    gonna have to move the steering wheel up and the seat way back too

  38. #238
    Are the trucks going to be any better?

  39. #239
    Probably not, no. Higher roof is all. I'd have to move the frame crossmember that sits right behind the cab back, and if I'm gonna have to do that I may as well do the sedan I want.
    Still, in the future. Let me finish this Porsche I've been working on for three years now. Having trouble with a custom shop getting any response, the've had the car 6 months for a 3 month job and they aren't responding to me.
