There was some serious elevation where we shot this....and i think the brakes got real warm. There was a fluttering sound out of the LH front bake callipers when they were hot and being stamped on....possibly a slightly warped disk.

Might swap for new vented disks ...they are relatively cheap

Others things.
Possible Electronic ignition
Dyno
Spin on oil filter conversion

Dash. New heating ducts.
Instrument overhaul ...calibration
Boot mats


Never ends really.

Motor had thin 'run in oil' to begin....3000rpm for that
New oil at 200 miles.....3500- 4000rpm for that.
At 300 miles ...taking it to 4500rpm at times.

Wow... It won't be long until you have the "complete" spider...

Car looks superb in the video clip.... Loving the sound effects!

No sound effects, just straight exhaust from Alfa :-)

Thanks ihart...we've copped a bit of flak from the dramatic music we chose, but really good fun making it.

Love the Alfa only video! Wish I could take mine out today but the roads are covered with salt and it's 15deg F with a 20MPH wind outside...

If they ever do a remake of the Italian job and the opening scene (Mura on the Alps) I think you should do it
