Yikes! Nice effort. I don't recall hearing about so much relocation work from Charlie or the guy or two from down under. But you are the man so rock n roll!


Idk man. The stage one cars have a different front end set up than the stage two cars. They don't seem as ready to accept the 5 speeds as I had hoped.

So here is the modified mount braket.

With the mount attached. I had to cut down and rethread the studs to a reasonable size.

Here it is in place.

Oh god! The speed is so much better now! It's amazing. This was the key component to making this thing daily livable.

I had a tread around here some where with some pics on it.
But here's another for good measure.

Great, I'll get dis'd by a few hundred puerto ricans.
Lime Rock vintage Fest I used to attend 20 - 15 years ago. Sterling Moss is grand Marshall or something so my friend Chris will likely take his Lotus up there. I'll probably save my $ for the following weekend at NJMP
