IMSA TR8 - Spax on the rear axle

Over the winter I found the block main bearings out of round.
Today the machine shop phoned that the crank is running again.
So engine assembly is short before.

I also get some custom build dampers for the rear axle made by SPAX.

Now after a while all spares are collected (bearings, piston rings, gaskets, brake pads, dampers, clutch parts) to make the car race ready.

If all goes right the first race can come.

I sharpen the knife for the BMW M1 ProCars and hopefully can keep up with them and you don't hang me up if I'm not and getting behind.

Cheers
Chris

Great looking car!
Could you post some more photos of your machine?

Cheers

Thank you!
Yes, the Group 44 cars are really nice shaped.
This car was the Canadian entry 1980 to IMSA and TransAm.
Bodywork, Spaceframe cage and Suspension came from Group 44. Engine + Transmission from JRT Canada.

I don't have many photos of the engine at the moment, maybe is a sound example also nice?
