What size tires are you running? I am assuming some version of a 165r15 or 155r15?

what are the gear box specs? Seems very well sorted for a swingaxle car! Little loose in the real tight corners.

It is more what it looks like when I am driving home from work Wink

Very respectable numbers for a 1285! What compression ratio are you running? Which venturi size are you running on those mighty 44's?

The Cortina seemed to have the upper hand in the straight sections but you definitely had the cornering and acceleration in command! Very cool! Thanks for posting and look fwd to more!

Do you have any pics of the electric fan/ ram air pipes, please, or is that proprietary? I love watching this vid! It's pretty funny but I find myself leaning into the turns! Laughing
