Bougth a TR8

Recommended Posts

Awesome sound, Chris, thanks for posting this video.

 

It seems that this kind of beast is not easy to move on slow motion, not really a surprise.....

That has to be the ugliest TR8 ever built, and the colour scheme does nothing for it. Fast 'n' Bulbous, to quote the Captain. I thought the LM TR8 and the Drag Car were of dubious proportions, but they look positively svelte in comparison . . . . :D

 

At least it seems a great deal easier to manoeuvre than the LM or Drag cars, and about half the volume of the dragster !

 

Keep up the good work Chris.

 

Cheers

 

Alec

Found on the right side cracks in the body shell which are now welded and strengthened.

I also move the oil tank to the trunk.

Started to remove the oil hoses.

All tubes and stuff came from Bastuck. Special made mufflers to fit under the car and very short to let the pipes go to the sides.

 

Cheers

Chris

Hi Niall,

 

before good results come in I need to learn to drive the car properly. But I think it will do okay on the first few try outs and with a little tweak here and there I hopefully gain speed.

Saw at RA that the right bank of the engine runs leaner than the left. Need to check that.

AND I try to install the rim vents to the car.

Was that RA in Perth?
