    Simon liked post by Bustamif On thread : R8 or A110 Brakes
    I do not agree that you will still have brakes on one system if you have dual master cylinders working in tandem off the one brake pedal. In real life, if you lose all the fluid from one master...

    I think it was a secret project Brettr was working on using some parts from his yellow Camaro and a few spare R8G bits.

    The front pads are mintex 1155 Meca Part number Mp 2809. Unfortunately there is not much range in R8 Gordini pads. If you run proper race style calipers there is a huge range of pads with various...

    Absolutely agree Henry. Since I had to design, improvise and build my own cars, if something broke and took out a few more parts in the process, I did not race again until I saved up, scrounged for...

    If you want serious skids just weld-r-up. Takes a little time to get a handle on the driving technique but very cost effective.

    Brettr called in today to check progress and discuss a few design ideas. We came up with a mock up front spoiler to keep the nose down and more aerodynamically stable over 110kph. There was not a...

    I am no Caravelle guru but I would expect that the suspension dampers are the same as R10/8. The lower engine bay sheet metal and shields could also be substituted by R10/R8 units modified if...

    Considering the revs you have reached on that motor I would definitely balance the clutch and flywheel as an assembly and not assume the factory spent the time and effort necessary for an engine with...

    The green R8 looks great to me apart from the wheels. I see the same thing with many 60's and 70's cars fitted with that style of wheel. I guess it looks great if you were a kid who grew up with...

    I must have missed that part of the day at Silverwater. Probably while I was looking at some great old French cars and munching on a croissant.

    This one may have more of the Dauphine charm ?. It is not so 2.7 Porsche looking and I think I have a rough mould somewhere if you need a starter. 96378

    Brettís ideas on chemically enhanced braking efficiency seem very cost effective. I agree with the chassis issues raised by Schlitzaugen. Itís right way to get the best out of any braking/handling...
