awesome work! you have my respect, thats alot of work but it will be a beast when finished. cant wait to see more!
Yeah, you guys do have a steering wheel on the correct side, the CENTER! McLaren F1 and Gordan Murray's Rocket.paul woods said:Yeah we have the steering wheel on the correct side of the car
Yes, it is possible, but using a Cadillac Northstar is SOOO much easier. I don't know how much it would cost you to get a N*, GM F40 6speed, and the flywheel/clutch I am using shipped to the UK, but I am willing to bet its cheaper than trying to make the Audi work.paul woods said:This v8 engine will quite happily fit transversely and an adapter plate for the E153 would not be too hard to make....however! and it's a big however... the right side axle will not pass the block,even if we remove the oil filter assembly and relocate that (easy enough) the shaft would then want to exit through the oil pump.So that would mean a dry sump system, modification to the block and also a custom shortened timing belt.In the end there are just too many issues in making it work transversely,although im pretty sure it can be done.
paul woods said:Thanks, i will update this thread as often as i can.I have also decided to fit racelogic traction control too, the rear speed sensors will be easy but im struggling for a front wheel solution right now.I might have to fit rear stub axles to the mk1 front hubs,so that i can fit an empty outer CV joint which can carry an ABS ring.
Sorry I didn't answer this sooner, I didn't get an e-mail.paul woods said:Fair enough but my point was its a lot heavier than the mk1 triangles which are very light... i can see why you have had to build your frame though.
