    David White's - Mk2 Escort - Cosworth V6 Turbo

    Heres my racer then. Started life as an RS2000 that I restored to std ish spec. Long story sort, pinto died, got replaced with a zetec and the car gradually got more modified, with GP2 arches etc.
    The car has now been rebuilt purely as a race car to enter the Track and race car championship next year.
    Heres the pics before it went to the painters, with the 'wet' wheels and a mock up of the Gulf colour scheme it will keep.


    .


    The spec is roughly as follows; Gaz shocks all round with capri 3.0 front suspension, modified to fit an escort and give wider track. Rear has a 6 link system on a full width atlas. Brakes are willwood 310mm and 4pots front and sierra rear. Inside everything is stripped out, including the dash. It has a full weld in cage, one off pedal box and bulkhead, large tunnels and a boot exiting exhaust.

    The engine is being built now and is a 24v V6 out of a granada and the gearbox is a TVR T5. All of which have been moved back around 12" to aid weight distibution.
    The body work is based on Nick whitings old V6 racing escort and is locally known as the 4X
    Wheels are 11"x15" (compomotive) for the wets (see pics) and 10.5"x16" and 13"x16" (image wheels) with 10" and 12.5" slicks for the dry.
    Oh and there's a rear venturi and front splitter to aid the aero's.

    All the hard work was done by Gary at Retromotorsport but lots of people have helped along the way to produce this pretty unique car. Thanx you guys and TS for the support
    As they say watch this space popcorn:

    Dont think you can really classify my engine bay as 'escort' anymore

    However I have seen one with the 24v in it, wouldn't recommend it though as its too heavy and too far forward. My engine is 12" further back and sits with the front pulley behind the rack Again not something I would recommend unless you're building an all out racer as EVERYTHING must also be moved back a foot

    I would still like a capri or sierra with one of these engines in it though as they're engine bays are more suitable and it would be a nice driveable road car

    Hi Cyclops, glad you like the car. The old Group 2 zakspeed kit came I think from old ford auto services. The kit comes with arches and front spoiler and is inexpensive, but requires a lot of work to get a good fit.
    Keep an eye on Markbs1's car as hes should be the nicest GP2 kitted car around (now that mines GP5 of course )

    But you'll have to get a move on Mark, I think we've made this kit popular now and you got competition

    Cyclops.. have a look here:
    http://www.turbosport.co.uk/showthread.php?t=74095
    some of the pics aren't working but i think that should be sorted in a little while.

    it has moved on a little bit from the end but nothing exciting - just some more primer inside and underneath and the engine's out, axle off... meantime i have been collecting bits and pieces so i can fit it up ready for paint

    Nice, that should be a fun motor

    Start a thread in the old school resto and project section, sounds like an interesting build. Sure all the peeps would like to see it.

    Re: David White's - Mk2 Escort - Cosworth V6 Turbo

    Took the car to Battlesbridge show today, unfortunately without the engine in place but not long now pray:
    I think it generated a little interest, well its far too fat to miss really.
    The week was spent rebuilding the car and once the lump is in the plumbing and wiring will follow

    Here's some pics of it with a few of its decals, all of its windows and some fat rubber under the arches for a change

    Thanks Guys, have to say the old girl didn't look too bad with all its windows back in and headlamp covers on. I also started to put a few decals on and I'm just waiting for the rest to be made up.... dont tell the painter though cos hes supposed to be buffing the paint or something before i cover it in vinyl

    Was good to see the car back on its wheels too, just a shame the trailer was too narrow for it and the old crappers had to go back on

    And Graham, after watching your race on saturday........ I CANT WAIT TOO
