  1. hahaha!! That is so hardcore..
     
  2. Thanks a bunch
     
  3. Love the Lancia. Here's one I saw in 2004 at a museum in Frnace.
     
  4. BTW, what are these Lancia's called and how much would one cost today?
     
  5. Lancia 037
     
  6. Never heard of that either? You got some info/pictures to prove it?
     
  7. there were 5 TWR XJ220S's made for the street, I believe. Red, Silver, Black, Green, Yellow and Blue.
     
  8. good counting
     
  9. Oh yer i forgot to mention there pics are current day. They Race 2-3 of these in historic races along with falcons, starions and sierras ... an awesome sight indeed. I have a couple short video clips if anyone is interested?
     
  10. Saw them at the Phillip Island Classic earlier in the year and again at the Sandown Classic a couple of weeks ago. Entertaining racing but the Nissans do nothing for me emotionally. There was also a R32 present at Sandown.
     
  11. good attempt at being funny
     
  12. it was not crap. the rules changed half way through the devlopment of the car (4wd was allowed) but ford decided to see the devlopment out. when it was finished it would not have been that competitive, so ford started devopment of the rs200, which was late and never showed its true potential becuase of this.
     
  13. My GT4 :d

     
  14. The spoiler. It was you who raised it, wasn't you? And what does that mean "Twin Entry Turbo"?
     
  15. I've got Performance Car form 02/1995 and the TWR 220S is featured there. If only I had a scanner..
     
  16. Nissan Silvia 240 RS?
     
  17. The spoiler is a factory fitted WRC spoiler.

    With regards to twin entry turbo...

    Twin Entry Turbo

    With 4 cylinders, the exhaust gases don't form a continuous stream so much as a set of pulses as each cylinder fires. This pulse stream comes down the 4 exhaust runners and hits the turbo. Toyota decided this wasn't optimum conditions for it's engine so to smooth out the stream and get better low-end performance and torque, they designed the exhaust manifold to pair up the runners of 1,4 and 2,3 cylinders before they got to the turbo. So there are 2 entry points to the turbo, hence the name.
     
  18. 205 Turbo16.
     
  19. Sweet, but does it say anything about a one make series?
     
  20. It enchants TWR to me XJ220S, serious fascinating to have I articulate scanned! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  21. I'm not sure I understand... one make series?
     
  22. I'm guessing you'd like to have the article scanned? I'll try to atleast get a pic of it, should be readable. Got to borrow a cam though.
     
  23. Just outright amazing.
     
  24. BUMP!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  25. NeoGoatBoy said they used to race TWR XJ220S in a single make race series. I don't belive it.
