Technically the car would need to have a wider chassis, with very few holes in the chassis to begin to take advantage of a rear diffuser.

A little bit tuning... hope you like it

I'd prefer a F430 but this has to do..





I actually lowered the rear body post by one step after the shoot. Here:

This one is called: What a MESS ;D (don't mess with us are the Kruisers saying.. haha)

hi there again

anyone interested in a belt driven GT, here's a few shots of my tranny conversion, I know some guys in the states have been trying out the same for a while.
just finished my install.
it wasn't too bad though it required some time work it out.
this is done using K parts (in Italy they don't supply the tranny because it's not allowed by the the rules there)



sorry about the rear body post, it's a bit bent during the build, just one screw there. the stock posts are a tad short for the lambo body in my opinion.

Looks cool Mika!

Do you think the VS058 would clear the spurs?

thanks Jeff.

Sure. I don't think there's any big difference between the Evolva centax bell or VS058. Both will work, just some readjusting/shimming, no more. It will be fine for standard clutches.

Thats good to hear, since using a buggy clutch will help even out this type of GT car a little in track performance with the shaft drives for our GT Open class. Nice work my Viking Brother

Thanks again.

I'm realizing that we (me) are actually deviating from the subject "buggy based". I guess evolution has done it's job in Italy apparently (they started out as buggy based, too).

Hope you guys are ok with the postings above though. Cheers

Mika that looks sweet. I and I would venture a guess no one will mind that you are posting those pictures here.
