    Someone talked about the Lexus V8?

    Hi guys,

    I remember someone talking about the Lexus V8.
    How about 905HP at 8400RPM?

    You can't...

    The Standard 10 diff doesn't have a tall enough ratio.

    Yes, but the Caterham Super Seven S3 can be had with Escort diffs as high as 3.54:1 or possibly even higher, although they're not ideal for outputs above 160hp. The Caterham is a genuine 7, since they bought the rights from Lotus, when Louts stopped production of the ugly Series 4 Super 7 in the early 1970s.

    I was more thinking of a Westfield, Amaroo, PRB, Fraser or another of the many different Clubman kits available out there.

    To be honest, my Jolus will do me nicely...

    203 engine, gearbox and 404 diff, 403 front suspension, Lotus 18 nose...

    And the radiator is the oil cooler from a big Pratt & Whitney radial engine as used in the Constellations.
