  1. Slipping outer bearing race

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'm replacing clutch cover bearings on my GTV6. This outer bearing is the right size but the housing no longer provides an interference fit so the outer race slips. No es bueno. What are my options here? Any suggestions? The housing is a steel sleeve on the aluminium cover but removing it...
  2. Quadrifoglio Race mode will be muted?

    Alfa Giulia
    I just read this article at Jalopnik and made me mad. What is going to happen to new sold Quadrifoglios? Their beautiful sound will be killed? European Noise Regulations Are Forcing Sports Car Makers to Resort to More Fake Engine Sounds Exhaust or silencing systems with multiple, manually...

  9. Repainting my 156 race car

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, The clear coat is peeling badly on my 156 race car and in order for me to start on my touring car inspired livery, I need to repaint it. Original colour was Alfa Rosso, but I'm considering a slightly deeper shade of red as shown in the attached photo. Does anyone have an idea of what the...
  10. race harness in s2 spider

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    anyone ever mounted, or seen mounted, a race harness in an S2 Spider? I have a 3 point "rally harness" lying around and was planning to install it for a forthcoming outing to a track free practice session. I bought the required FIA base reinforcing plates but on having a look, I cant find...

    Hi all, I am looking to fit 16 inch Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 wheels to my 156 which I mostly use on track (but still road legal) . The wheels are 7 inch wide as opposed to the standard 6.5 inch. With the standard wheels having an offset if 41.5, would 38mm be the appropriate offset for the...

  13. What exactly does Race mode change?

    Alfa Giulia
    As the title really. For context, went out for a blast today on fairly quick but twisty and slightly damp roads. I still have the winter tyres on but it was about 8c anyway but I do find that under full power the rear squirms around a bit on the tread blocks. Anyway, initially I was in Dynamic...

    Last weekend saw me and my long-suffering offspring at Race Retro at Stoneleigh Park. Lots to see and probably the best opportunity to get up close and personal with proper race hardware that you're likely to get. It starts in the car park. 20180224_120049 by keith hilton, on Flickr...

  19. "Cheap as ****" race team anyone?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just throwing this out there in case anyone else is as daft as me. Any interest in forming a race team using scrap worthy and utterly beyond repair 156's? Write-off's, rust buckets, you name it. I'm planning on taking my busted JTD out on track days and possibly looking for a race series for a...
  20. Brera S-V6 Race Car Project

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I have decided that I want to convert my Brera S-V6 into a dedicated track car project. Now the reason for doing so is due to some damage that the car sustained to the front right of the car to the front bumper, bonnet and wings. This didn’t affect the car in anyway except visually and...
