Hi Gos, what made you decide to go for the jts engine? Apart from the worry about the car being overpowered of course.

This is something I have thought about in the past - would the car handle the...

Hi Dave,

I see you have a lot of work planned for your Mirabeau!

Hi Gos,
It's been a while since I was on here - you wanted to discuss the fitting of the Alfa engine. It's a bit tight but ok.

Here goes....

Have you managed to sort out your brakes yet? I've just been going through some old notes from when I designed the pedal box. I worked on a 6.5:1 pedal ratio - don't know if this helps.

Hi Ian,

I've just been digging out the info for the calipers - I went for the 1.5" piston option. I will have to have a look at the car to see the master cylinder sizes I went for, I think I...

I went for the Wilwood Forged Midilite radial mount caliper, mainly because they include piston dust seals. It seemed that very few of the aftermarket calipers had them built in at the time. Also you...
