Nah it's still around. Just scattered around the place.
Should put it back together at some point..

Coupes engine? Who knows I keep chopping and changing what I want to do.
The 1600 in it now goes well. I'll wait till it throws a rod again then plan on doing something with it...

Smithy, whats the plan for the suspension setup? The same as the sedan?
I noticed you have removed the rear seat base, now plenty of room for a 4 link and a watts!

Hey mate! Yeah the 4 link & Watts is very tempting :lol:
I have to retain the same setup as I had in the sedan.
It all worked very well, but had limitations.

I have made Mk2 Escort front suspension fit the front end.
Would transform the car, had it all bolted in too.
but I need to retain & use the std suspension mounting
points.
I only need to mount something to the top arm mount
then it will be within the rules.

I hope your new G200 is making the tyres bald! :lol:

Also compared the weight of some G200 conrods
& the conrods I'm going to use. Massive difference
from the STD conrod.

- STD Conrod

- SPOOL Conrod
