Firebird Parts

Postby Basement Paul » Sun Oct 06, 2019 10:38 am

I'm just starting this post as a good place to put parts I may or may not need for the Firebird, depending on the seriousness of the build.

I found this helpful after my power steering fluid overheated at Nelson on track day. Synthetic fluid and a cooler are being ordered shortly.

So with my current tire size, and gearing (3.42), the car will be at 134mph at 6000 rpm in 4th. If I switch to 3.73 it would go 124, 3.90 would go 117 mph, and 4.10 would be at 112mph in 4th.
I'm not changing anything yet, but since I looked it up, I figured I'd post it.
