Gtv2000, thanks for the nice comment about my Alfa book shelf.

I am interested in your comment about the Tipo B not having a 3.8 litre engine. Is the 3.8 litre engine actually larger in it’s external dimensions then the 3.2 litre? I am certainly not an expert on the subject but most of the books I have seem to point to there being 3.8 litre engines in more then one Tipo B.

I’ve included a few for your comment; I find it interesting to know what engines sizes were in use.

Also in the book ‘The Scuderia Ferrari’ on page 307 it states that during the 1935 German GP Nuvolari’s ‘P3” was fitted with special ‘Nurburgring’ Englebert tyres which had 6mm thread instead of the usual 4mm used everywhere else. Do you have any comments about the advantage Nuvolari had with his tires?
