THE GRAND PRIX CAR 1945-1965 - PART 3/3 (UK Channel 4 1988)
The Funny Cars - about the domination of the british mid-engined green funny cars - after MB withdraws, the italian domination resumes but some funny cars unlike anything seen since before WWII apear - 1959 the front engined brigade headed by Ferrari (but also including Aston-Martin, BRM) don't seem able to keep up with some small underpowered funny cars powered a water-pump engine positioned in the wrong place - 1960 the "revolution continues" the funny cars from Cooper (T51, and new T53) and now also Lotus (the mark 19; with fully adjustable suspensions) now totally destroy the stubborn front engined boys; - but the lack of reliability from Lotus means that Cooper cars dominate even moreso then in 1959 - for those not driving a mid-engined car the situation is completly hopeless - 1961 Monaco, a new 1.5 litre NA formula, almost the entire field of funny cars, the "revolution" has triumphed - 1964/65 talks about a new formula - the return to power





THE GRAND PRIX CAR 1945-1965 - PART 2/3 (UK Channel 4 1988)
Well, they're back - about the domination of the german silver arrows - new formula, 2.5 litre NA - MB return and in 54 and 55 (with a few exceptions) totally trash the field, just like in the good old days of the 1930s after the death of Auto Union's Bernd Rosemeyer - they introduce mechanical direct injection, windtunnel streamlined bodies; and where planning to use 4WD system witch allowed front wheel auto-gearing to a form of mechanical traction control - launch control - for those not driving a silver car it's quite hopeless

First start of new Triumph GT6 race engine
Update Warning: Do not use ARP rod bolts. I have had two rod bolt failures now due to the bolts backing out. I find that the finish on the threads is too smooth and may not mate properly with the female threads in the rod. Use your old rod bolt or some good grade 8 socket head cap screws.

I find that the finish on the threads is too smooth and may not mate properly with the female threads in the rod. Use your old rod bolt or some good grade 8 socket head cap screws. This is the very first (very gentle) start of our new high compression race engine. We have new Arias custom made forged pistons, a lightened fly wheel and a recurved distributor. It looks like we will make it to the vintage race a Lime rock park this Labor day!
