Re: Jag XJ 6 steering rack upgrade

Seems the 8-tooth short tower has a faster ration (vs the 7-tooth long tower).

One big advantage is the faster ratio with the 8 tooth pinion:

Re: Jag XJ 6 steering rack upgrade

The XJR rack has a faster ratio, but this unit only interchanges with mid 90s XJ6. I don't know if this is the same layout as the older XJ6.
Also, there are short and long tower XJ6 racks. I need to inquire how they differ inside.

Did you consider changing the length of the steering arms?

Re: 427 SC Cobra body mold, chassis

Note:
A handful of brackets needs still to be added to make it even more original, but as it is my bodies or most others will be supported.
A 100% original copy costs GBP 10.000 in UK.

I get the suspension drawings and brackets which you need to finish this.

Re: What cool cars have you spotted today

I spotted a "cool" red rental Cobra yesterday on the road to Llundudno. The cool part however was the the guy knew how to drive!
