    The only reason I mentioned it was there was because of a recent and lengthy string about this on the GT40s website, and though it would seem that this is much less critical for a steering shaft,...

    Looks like you're taking care of all those annoying issues with the bodywork for these cars. Unfortunately, there is a lot of them.

    Yeah, I found the 930 to be a pretty much optimal gearing for a high-torque motor, if you can get around the older generation synchros. Please post some rear suspension photos when you have time.

    What about the Montage (especially with all the work being put into this project) prevents a modified frame that uses side tanks similar to what was used on the Mirage?
