If I am not totally wrong thatīs a car running in Switzerland. The clip is from the event in Arosa, an annual hillclimb. But I donīt know if itīs the original car or a clone.

GT40 - Original/Mk V / Re: Ford GT40 crash at Goodwood Revival
« on: November 27, 2021, 03:36:35 AM »
The GT 40 was supposedly a very original car and indeed the real thing ( as stated before, this is rare nowadays because of the amount the cars are worth ), unfortunately there was an Interview with the driver (Sam Hancock, a very good and experienced driver, specialist for historic racing) where he was quite happy to be trusted with such an original and historic example. The accident was very unfortunate, there was a lot of oil on the track which totally surprised both - the T70 spider simply could not slow down.

Thank you both for your input - I have bought for a quick solution a set of Gorilla lug nuts.
I will go the Cobra Automotive way, but will wait until I need a bit more (soon.. ;) ), so the shipping costs etc. are worth it.

Cheers,
Ralf

That could be plan C - although itīs always complicated to have inch-sized items made in a metric world ! ;D

Usually I would use Cobra A. But the price plus shipping, customs and tax to Germany would probably bring me to about $350...
Was hoping for some less expenditure.
Plan B is still going to more standard, shorter ones.

Replicas and Tribute / Long racing lug nuts
« on: April 13, 2021, 09:23:29 AM »
Hi - I am looking for a source for the long, open ended racing lug nuts. My car did come with a set, the shouldered seat type with washers.
But - for a different set of wheels I need tapered ones.
Cobra Automotive does sell them, I know - are there any other sources ?

Thanks !

Ralf

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / Re: Condensers for dual point?
« on: February 25, 2021, 12:35:04 PM »
In my experience the best condenser available is this one : https://swiftune.com/parts-shop/ignition/swiftune-competition-condenser-2.html
They explicitly developed it for racing engines and as much better and more reliable alternative for all the aftermarket copies.
I had a lot of condensers fail in my pre war racer, since using the Swiftune one (since 2010 now, without change !) no more problems.
Highly recommended - and I am not affiliated or get free ones !  ;D

Mine is also lowered, tires are 225/60x15 Avons on Torque Thrust. Fenders had some clearance work (rolling,smoothing of lips). No rubbing.
We had to put in some more camber just in case for having it registered here in Germany to be on the safe side (they test quite thoroughly).
Rears have plenty of room - will try 245s soon. 225s look almost lost...  :D
