    Thanks

    I was thinking of using an MX5 one (which is probably the same as what was used in a 323).

    My logic being that the MX5 is probably of a similar weight to the completed kit

    That's what we thought that the Jag one is for a car twice the weight and as it's so big we didn't want to fit it. The brakes on his car when finished were really good.

    Best of luck with this build, it's going to be great seeing it start coming together. From humble beginnings...

    I assume he kept the Jag calipers?

    Thanks. I think the fibreglass work will be the most challenging part!

    Great, thanks for the information

    I see from your signature you are running Megasquirt with Edis 8. This is my current thinking for the RV8 engine

    Some good feedback/info so far, thanks

    Can anyone shed any light on the steering rack/column?

    I can only tell you what my mate used which was a Sierra column and Escort MK2 steering rack.

    Yes been using Mega Squirt for a few years, had a few issues with the original set up MS1 but since upgrading to MS2 it is superb.

    Thanks - he did not go for PAS then. Any reason you know?

    I have a Megasquirt in my Westfield, they are good bits of kit
