Re: WTH Spider Rear Racing Suspension!

The IRS set up really is quite expensive. If it means anything....my live axle car was faster than an irs rear end car on smooth tarmac. Dirt or rough euro hillclimb circuits are a different matter. The only issue i had with using an A arm for lateral location on a live axle, was the mounting point ...

Re: WTH Spider Rear Racing Suspension!

The rear hubs are lancia montecarlo. As Steve said this is full Gr 4 suspension. There are indeed 2 spherically jointed tie rods that attach to the hubs for toe adjustment.

Re: Vintage Racer Build

Its interesting to read about your setup. Mine is similar but with a 2 quart accusump through a sandwhich plate above the oil filter. I used to run it as you do direct into the exh side oil gallery, but there was limited room for the alternator bracket, and i didnt like the hose been so close to the...

Re: Vintage Racer Build

What are you doing about oil surge control? I see your running an OEM type wet sump, i assume with some trick internal baffling?
Even with an Accusump ive never been able to totally eliminate oil surge on corners with mine. Even on street tyres, let alone semi slicks i race on.
