    Can you run Griggs Suspension?
    Are you optimistic or pessimistic about the end of the world?

    I wish, just pulled the Griggs front control arms and K Frame out!

    Improved Production must retain original suspension arms and K Frame. Uprights, hubs and shocks are free so long as the shocks and springs are in the original location

    Would photos of the PinePac Group A Mustang be of any use to you?

    Before or after they balled it up?

    Phillip Island 2007. So after the first big crash and before the second one.

    Fork! I started scrolling down through the pics and wasn't paying attention, presuming (as I wasn't wearing my glasses) it was a diff centre or something.

    Setting up pedal box and seating position. As you can see its important to use the correct racing boots whilst setting up pedal height!

    I was wondering what had happened to this, glad to see it's still going. What are you planning for a brake light switch? I've got the same pedal box but can't really see a simple way of running a conventional switch so I'm going to use a pressure sensor to switch the brake lights via the Motec PDM. Would love to see a simpler solution if you have one.

    Tee piece in the line, and screw in a brake light switch for a mini? Side stand switch from a bike on a bracket? Switch from the back brake pedal on a bike with it's spring? Plenty of ways to skin a cat.

    Completely forgot about the brake switch, thanks for reminding me. Will probably make a bracket and have a switch to the pedal. Need to keep it simple

    This is exactly what i did for my pedal box. Went on ebay and searched for "motorcycle hydraulic brake light switch", got a $5 china switch and teed it into my rear brake line. I bought a couple thinking they would crap out but the original one is still going strong. You barely need any force to set them off so the lights come on as soon as you hit the pedal.

    The Tilton pedals are a bit cunty for making a bracket, as suggested by others I'm going to look at a basic pressure switch.

    Hey lettuce know if you want to sell one as I always have issues with the switch off the bracket style that I'm currently running.

    That looks very similar to the one used on Minis, E-Types and Alfas.
    Plenty of banjo bolt switches (single and double banjo) around though, I think i've got a single banjo switch in a box somewhere.

    I'm planning on teeing into the lines somewhere and running one of the 1/8 NPT switches as well. Predicting setting up a regular switch on a floor mounted Tilton box is going to be a cunt.

    Yep, I like that more than the banjo style.

    Also, any more info on the Windsor for this?

    Oh - a heads up on those 1/8th NPT switches - either mount them so the terminals point down, or bleed the brakes up, unscrew the switch, fill the recess in the switch with fluid, screw back in and re-bleed. Otherwise you wind up with air trapped in the switch.

    Mine only took about 5 days to get here and there are tons available on ebay with free postage. I did have to tap the tee fitting to the metric thread and chop the sensor down about 10mm but since they come with dowty seals you can just use one and it goes in like any other 1/8 npt sensor.

    They also come in M10 x1.0, 1.25 and 1.5 - easy to wind up with the wrong one.

    I have a weird fascination with fox bodies. How did you get a hold of this car, did you personally import it or had someone else already brought it over to Aus? I like it a lot, love the colour. Can't wait to see this thing dominate at the track.
