Rally guys are always looking for the low ratios, so they are much in demand! There was a time when you could pick up a NOS crown wheel and pinion set, and when I was restoring my RS16 road car I found a guy selling a huge range of ratios bought from Ford years ago, no doubt when they were clearing stock!

The repro CWPs now seem to be much better quality than few years ago. Iíve had Ford and MG sets that have performed well. Maybe something to do with where they are made? Clue is the gear mesh quality when built up. If it looks poor, the unit will be......

Thanks Mike.

Will have to look for a copy tomorrow.

I went to the Brit GT and F3 media day today.

Lots of Historic names - Aston Martin, Jaguar, McLaren, Mercedes, Bentley for example - but a rather different proposition.

On the plus side the F3 opportunity apparently comes with an annual budget requirement of around a quarter of a million GBP or a tad less which, oddly perhaps, seems very reasonable compared to a few years ago and even compared to top level kart racing.

Apologies for the temporary excursion.
