Nicola... You're right, it's not "ordinary" at all. I am amazed at what Alfaholics has been able to create. It's 216 bhp on a 925 kg car and it grips amazingly well.

Phyzul, did your car come with the twin spark head or did you source it elsewhere? What else has been done to it? It is a beautiful car.

Somehow I knew that!! We tried to keep up with David Munro (69Alfa) in his Spider "Jr", similarly powered, last summer on the pre-convention tour in Maryland prior to AlfaCentury. Gotta love that power:weight ratio!!!
Enjoy!!!!

Oz3litre... The TS head did not come with the original car but was a separately sourced donor. To list all the bits added during development would be too long. But the essentials are TS engine + Alfaholics Trackday Blue Suspension Kit + SS Full Exhaust + Competition LSD + new fuel tank + interior work.

Bought myself some Toyo R888s tires for a planned NŁrburgring trip later this week.
The rims are 15x6,5" CitroŽn items, ET=27mm and I only had to enlarge the hub diameter hole from 65mm to 70mm - piece of cake
The bolts are 4x108mm.

I fitted the Sparcos and polished the paint ... and I am READY for some 'Ringing!!

Nice! Too bad we don't have CitroŽns here in the U.S. that we can grab wheels from!

Thanks.

I couldn't get hold of Saab rims this time, and I noticed that the CitroŽn shares some of the important dimension ... and not least that the ET dimension gives a wider track

Just returned from a 2,300 km roundtrip to the NŁrburgring last night.

The car ran well ...

(added 2 photos: one is from the trackday and one is from what they call 'tourist driving' - I think you can spot the difference )
