GT 3 Alfa Is Baaaaaack!

We are currently prepping the car to run GT 3 once again for the 2005 season! I'll try and keep up with pictures of progress. Plan is to do lots of testing the remainder of the year and then go kick some SCCA a$$ next season.

This car is incredible. In 1991 Dino Crescentini did a 1:23 around Willow Springs in it. At that time turn nine was even more narrow which means it would be even faster today!

I bet the reason it goes so fast is that high performance alignment it's running... I would run a 1:23 around Willow too if I could have that much toe out!

Interesting place to have an oil cooler....

And what kind of rear axle do you use? That isn't an Alfa beast.

Eric, from what I can see in Anthony's pictures, it looks like a Winters Quick-Change, or maybe a Halibrand. If your not familar with what a QC rearend is, the rear cover can quikly be removed to reveal two gears that can be changed, thereby changing the gear ratio. An example would be one set of gears could give you two different ratios depending on which shaft you put the larger gear on, one could give you 3.56 or 5.12, just an example.

Yes it is a quick change rear end. This one is made by Speedway Engineering in Sylmar, California. We have all the gears for the different tracks...one of the cool things about buying a well sorted car with spares.
