I think it's documented on here somewhere but yes it was a mould from 206 shell altered to fit a europa chassis. Looking at the cascu shell and my dino shell I think the whole back was...

True they are only 5 speed-but woodsport do a 6 speed update/rebuild version if that's what you want. Expensive though. Personally 5 speed would do me ok. It was good enough for ferrari after all....

Thumbs up 246 engine?

Hi All

My two pennies worth. The trouble with taking a front wheel drive engine and box and placing it in a mid engine configuration is the weight transfer on high acceleration. When the box is in...

Hi Ross

Unfortunately I was beaten to it-but looking at it now it appears to be an updated deon chassis. The front wishbones look exact copies of the deon ones on mine. Mine uses fiat 124 on the...

Very nice car-but is it an actual classic rep. From the photo's it looks to be in america or canada. I know they remade it to be more exact but I've never seen one hit the road-yet. Do you know for...

With the deon and early classic rep cars the transmission tunnel is massive that's why the roof was split in to 2 pieces. I doubt you could make a 1 piece roof section that would fit behind the...

Hi all

Another shot of interest for all. I overlaid the cascu panels on the deon and found engine lid was spot on. Rear boot was some 3 inches or for those in metric 76 mm longer. However the...

Hi All

After a few weeks of proper work I've had a day off on the dino. Thought I'd look in to where the 85mm needs to go. While I was at cascu's workshop I put my tape measure over various parts...
