Pressure plate, in English.

How does that welded diff like the snow? I'll bet it's either grippin' or slippin'...

Yep, but that engine got a little tired (hole in a piston)...

The welded diff is fun as h**l in the snow, sideways is the only way to get around a corner.. 8-)

Also known as a full blown racecar to us less than serious car builders on Turbobricks.

Excellent work. That car must be fast as hell.

i like how the only gloss piece of paint on the car is the engine block. thats how you tell that a car is fast. when under the hood is cleaner than the doors.

This car is *shockingly* similar to my 78 buildup.... This is too weird... same color and everything...

Hehehe, function before beuty is my motto, at least for wintercars.

To bad the snow came early this year, hard as h**l to map the car when there is no gripp, doesn't matter what gear you use.

I will post some more pics and maybe a couple of clips of it in the near future, stay tuned...

Nice car. How much did you chop the springs? I like the stance.

i'd say 1.5-2 turns. mine are chopped 1 turn and it's slightly higher then that.

The springs are cut 2,5 turns in the front and 2 turns in the rear, depending on the condition of your springs the turns you have to cut varies, with new springs you might have to cut 3 turns to get it just right and with old tired ones 1,5 might do the trick.

The blue switch on the dash is the mainswitch for the electric fan, it get pretty cold here in the winter (about -13C now and the sun is shining) so you need all the heat you can get in the car, its only when idling for a long time you want the fan to work with the tempswitch in the winter.
Its not uncommon here to cover up at least half your radiator with cardboard or something in the winter.

Some of us know all about that... We've been lucky this year, still no snow and randing from ranging from - 8C to 0C.

But it'll come.. http://memimage.cardomain.net/member_images/11/web/251000-251999/251906_116.jpg :-(

We where out mapping it this weekend, it runs great now, idles perfekt, great throttlerespons and faster then expected, the engine is pretty stock after all.

A few "near death experiences" while trying to map high boost and rpm, very sideways @ 6000rpm in 4th gear is scary.. :-P

Sadly the camera didn't want to work in the cold so the pics and vids will have to wait until next weekend.
