The headlights surprise me. If anyone has noted what happens when you light up at night at speed**......they have the effect of great big air brakes when they pop up!

So to have them fixed in the up does surprise me.

** at speed = more than 60mph for me.... :roll:

Their was a question of final drive ratios the car came with a choice of 5:1 and 5:8. It was a weapon had the joy of sitting in with Gwyndaff Evans on tests "amazing" air born in mist covered blind corners, while sheep run about the path ahead! The three pumps in the pic rally cars normally run a spare on separate switch just incase one dies. Their has always been an issue trying to get fuel in at 9-10 k even with mods to float bowl and needle valve they tend to start leaning out because the carb just can't supply her demand!
Smg's group b. I built the engine for competed in Moroccan rally last month, it led for five days straight then broke prop shaft on last special stage!
