1985 Turbo Esprit with HCI mods & intercooler
Thanks. The problem at the moment is how to transition from the stock female splines in an outboard Stevens hub carrier to a flanged Porsche CV930 half-shaft.
Interesting. Where was the article? Did they provide any before/after quantitative analysis or measurements of torsional rigidity?.....
After agonizing about replicating an X180R-style cage, I read a nice piece about the increase in torsional strength achieved by Lotus circa ‘88 by stiffening the composite body. Apparently this was more significant than modifying the backbone. Since the interior of my ’85 is stripped, it would be relatively straightforward to strengthen the GRP into a monocoque a la F1....
Yes why would you want/need any moreWhat did the Esprit do for side impact protection? Just fiberglass doors?
