completed the M2. What a job!
Rack and pinion was a challenge – used Ford Laser rack
and universals. Did not have to cut steering arms as I managed
to get everything to line up nicely. Cut and welded steering
shaft to add splines for universal at one end and for removable
steering wheel at other end and lowered to match seating position.
Clutch gave me some problems as I finally realised that slave
unit had 20.64mm bore and Brembo master cylinder was only 17mm
resulting in too much pedal movement to get clutch to operate
Cooling system is also too complicated as I used pod radiator
from a Tyrell with inlet and outlet on the same side on the
other side to the engine outlet and water pump inlet. Still
have to manufacture strut brace but otherwise ready to go.
Amazed myself by rewiring complete car inclusive of S14 engine
loom to 2002.
Car has full roll cage and is fully seam welded for rigidity.
Still wired to Motec ECU with chip for 210HP
