Re: race gas in stock comp. M20?

In my turbo esprit days, I used to run 100ll avgas in it ( for convienience somewhat, i kept it in a airport hangar) .

Re: Yoshi's Modded knuckle kit R&D

Just a stab at this, but why dont you just re-bore the tie rod mount to put it in towards the pivot more? clearance issues?

You better have a 11.1 or more, wild cam and real tuned headers etc for them to be an asset. Just get an s54, the work is all done already :)

Re: Trans kaput!

If I owned this place i would definately make a pit. But in the meantime will be pondering!

Yes thats one of a few probs with ramps, they would be e bitch to store, and pretty shallow to get our low cars upon.
