this was 2021 but still some struggles withe the 901 gearbox and the 2.8 type 4 combination



and this was this year on Clastres, finally without mechanic problems

What's the fuel capacity of this tank?

How much taller than standard is this tank?

it was a 70 liter tank, homemade back in the day.



the problems with the gearbox, it wasn't only the gearbox, it was the gearbox and the combination of the used parts.

- The 215mm flywheel dindn't have the bearing, so we got the flywheel machined and that was a problem solved
- once the gearbox became hot, there was an oil leak. the modified nose (also previous owner) was leaking, and you don't want that on a racetrack, so we bought another nose, had to modify it a bit. another problem solved (we tought). But apparently the gears were damaged by the heat.
So, another gearbox, the case from a 914 is the same, so... But we forget to change the breather hole (stupid, I know) so once you drive a few minutes in high revs, he throws out the oil.

But for now it runs great. Maybe we'll be at Le Bug Show next weekend

82mm stoke Scat crankshaft met 104mm JE pistons and cilinders so a 2782cc to be correct.

billet Thorsten Pieper heads with type1 exhaust ports (CSP python 48mm)

322° camshaft. for now still the standard type4 rockers and 48 idf carbs.

good for 207 bhp and 280 Nm on the wheels.
