Track test results:

-motor is a home run, plenty of smooth power, runs dead cool temp :good:

-Buzco vintage rubber didn't have enough grip so I installed the orange rubber with Mila Miglia rims

-Wilson's crown was very noisy so I installed the 28T dyed Parma

-handling was nice, drifts well, no bad habits, a fun car to drive :D

 

Track test #2 in a few weeks .........

Second track test today revealed better grip with the orange donuts, so they stay.

Handling was good, no deslots, no bad habits, drifts nice.

Plenty of horsepower. Only one more change is needed - the brass pinion with the dyed Parma pink crown is noisy as heck.

I'll be switching it to a straight steel pinion and call it done :)

Switched to a 7T 48P Sonic straight steel pinion. Drivetrain test results:

-slightly quieter with the steel pinion, but the car is still noisy.

 

I'm calling it done; the noise is simply the nature of the beast.

-threaded vintage wheels and threaded axle ride in tubing, not bushings, to give it a true vintage flavor

-distance between the AYK bracket face and the axle is quite long, so it loads the endbell bushing pretty hard

-Champion 26D stock can bushings were notorious for being noisy and I left it stock, in the interest of vintage

-noisy car with a powerful Havlicek arm and Arco mags = fast, noisy little car :)

 

It is a powerful motor and it lights up the tires in low grip situations.

That low grip is what makes it drift sweet without tilting. Handling is impressive, no apology there.

It's a fast little car with a nice 26D bark that's fun to drive, and it is for sale :)
