Re: Rear brake conversion?

The question here is: why? Brake performance is good enough for any street application, and some clever set service openings will make live easier. In addition, the "moving" weight is less.

Rear brake conversion?

Hi All
I have the Jaguar rear axle on my Hawk fitted with inboard rear brakes.
Has anyone changed from this arrangement to outboard brakes as fitted on the later Jags?

Re: Registering a uk car in France

I know (vaguely) somebody in France who has registered 2 Ginettas over the past couple of years.
His name is Terry Piner and he run's a company called www.frenchruralcottages.com I am pretty sure he would be happy to help.
The phone number is at the bottom of his webpage.
Good luck.

Re: Hillclimb rollbar/rollcage

Thanks Colin Newbold for that information. It is my hope to be able to run with just the roll hoop and the forward facing petty bar. I will have a chat with my local scrutineer to get his thoughts on the Historic Tecnical Passport. Thanks everybody who has replied to this post.
