    G3 Escort - Titan RWD Mk3 Escort - V6 rebuild conversion

    Hi all,
    Don't really know where to start from but here goes...

    I picked the car up in 2012 to use for road rallying but soon after having it the MSA chose to ban cars that had been converted to RWD, therefore the decision was made to go stage rallying...

    Over the 10 years iv constantly been developing the car in many different ways and the spec of it has improved no end along the way. The previous couple of years its really turned into a competitive 2L class car having multiple class wins including an overall event win and just last year we took the UK Protyre asphalt championship class win and escort challenge win. Unfortunately the car took a bit of a knock on the Pokerstars event on the isle of man which put us out of the last round and subsequently has forced it into a full rebuild. So to cut a long long story short il start from here on in and upload some images iv taken along the way.

    Iv also decided to change engine and class from the 2000cc ST170, I'm putting a 3L Duratec V6 in from the S type jaguar.

    I would just check the Regs with the MSA before putting such a big CC engine into a small engine car. Them lot love killing Home made specials off.

    yea donít they just! All is fine though as weíre on a Cat2 logbook with the car so opens us up to go over the +25% capacity rule.

    delay with the pictures, uploaded a load onto Photobucket then realised you canít share from there anymore.. doh! Any idea where you can upload and share from now?
