Good update Rich.
Nice vids. I’ve only watched part one, but I’ll get the rest watched soon.

Goodstuff! Cool

PS. You’re one of those blokes that has a calming influence. I can’t imagine you throwing spanners around when things don’t go right, like I do. Grin


My Mrs, doesn't quite see my antics as calming; well certainly not after this which I'm about to explain...

A slight thread deviation but I feel some of the readers here may find this of interest. Well I’ve just returned from a rather mental drive to Stockholm and back to collect my next car. Due to the depth and attention to detail with this car I’m just going to lightly skim over some of the design and construction pics, I would literally be here forever for the full breakdown. It basically makes the £230,000 Alfaholics GTA-R look a bit tame. The car was built by a fellow aircraft engineer so the technology found on this car is more akin to what you would find on an aircraft (MIL spec loom, L163, Titanium…). It truly is well beyond of scope of normal automotive tech. The car started life as a 1975 JT Junior 1600. The builder had the car 13 years. He started with a completely restored shell with all the other components in boxes. The early idea was to use the Alfa engine but this was ditched fairly early on. In search for a new powerhouse the F20C was chosen. Those who know a thing or two about NA engines will most probably know Honda's F20C engine held the record for producing the highest specific power output for any mass production naturally aspirated piston engine, at 123.5 HP/L, until Ferrari began production of the 458 Italia in 2010, which produced 124.5 HP/L. The F20C revs to 9000rpm, is unbelievably strong and reliable even at this level of tune. The engine was completely stripped down and rebuilt as new then some special track orientated modifications added, baffled sump etc. A completely unique custom fabricated ITB system was made, not only that it uses Formula1 engine type injection with the injectors housed within the trumpets; a true work of art as you’ll see from the pictures below. It is now mapped and running on E85 so it is a very green machine. In the current state of tune it is making around 255bhp and weighs just under 900kg. Some of the detail and lengths gone to really are astonishing, 180mm wider track for instance… It really is a one-off in the truest sense.
The car has been through various stages of design and some aspects of the early work presented here may no longer be on the car. The pictures are roughly in time order. The final car is fully FIA compliant and certified so can be used in most race series. It has also been road registered which is some achievement. My aim is to dial it back a little and attempt to make it TUV compliant for registering in Germany and just simple marvel at the quality of workmanship and engineering.
This is only a short summary but I’m sure that’s enough of my blabbering, I’ll let some pictures do the talking. Let the engineering porn commence!!!

Awesome.
Are you going to make it a little more stock-looking, such as with the old Dunlop-style alloys and bulged wings, rather than the extensions and wing it currently has?

Coullstar, he is now buying a Ginetta to race.

Tough decision, with many potential options. The car came with 3 sets of Forged Motorsport wheels: one set of ATS DTC in 17x9 as per below in silver. Then 2 sets of Team Dynamics Pro Race in black 17x9 and 16x7.

I also started working on the car today, you can see the 16" wheels in black on the front in one of these pictures. I'm thinking of painting these in gold Question There is also a 3kg per wheel weight saving between the two (19.8kg vs 16.7kg both including tyre). With fitting the 16's I can then also look at other arch options (the 16's sit in a further 30mm per side). The current arch extensions are 9cm but I do have another 2 sets which are narrower. Original wheel options will not work as the biggest set is a 15" (Alfaholics) and wont clear the calipers. Besides this, in terms of going back to original style, I'm considering removing all the undertray system (diffuser, front spoiler/splitter and rear wing). It would be a shame in some respects as it has been so well made including finding a solution to fit an original Radical diffuser, but ground clearance for a road car is a must. Currently 8cm but my drive way is pretty steep so there is contact.

Todays work included a slight arch modification for wheel clearance, then decided to remove some of the stickers. I left the door ones on for the time being as I'm not sure if I want to remove them Question

Paint the ATS a different colour. I think they are one of the best look wheels of all time, so hard!
Car is sublime.

I am losing the ability to keep up with all your threads, but this one is setting new heights. Please do a video walk around and tell us a little bit about the details.

On a personal taste issue, the smaller black TD’s would be my choice - I just think the stance is better than with the larger wheels, and black / red is the theme I follow on my toy cars. (Whilst on the subject, the white rounders without any numbers link to the cage......). Oh boy, I wish I had these problems.

It does sound as if your driveway is destined for phase 2 modifications 🙂
