After I rebuild the '78 carbed gtb I bought last year to get it allowed to drive on our European roads (See my "call me stupid" thread) I started with rebuilding it to it's final destination: the track. With business drawing lots of my time the first part of this year I mainly spent my limited time on exploring posibilities and finding suitable parts. Among lots of small stuff I bought Nick Forza's direct ignition and suspension and polygraphite bushings, scored a complete 360 brakeset on ebay and started making some leightweigt parts. I also found a company able to make and welled in a perfect roll-overbar.(still to do unfortunately) After quite some considderation i also bought a used (but complete) Ameritec Turbo set. This week this set arrived and as it came fully complete it also contained the original installation manual. As I was on holidays the last week I spent my time wisely reading through this quite large set of papers. I know this set has been discussed here now and than and that it basically, esspecially compared with the modern stuff, an old setup. However, after reading through the manual and two roadtests (copies were included too) The set really grown to me in a rather strange way......... Athough old the set actually seems very very well thought off. Not some average product of a home mechanic but actually the result of very thorough development by guys who did know were they were talking about! Not only they seems to have taken account for all technical details to make this a high end product but they also had a close eye on there future costumers. This translated into a very complete set consisting not only of all the parts needed for the job but also they included a whole range of stuff man would need to do a proper job. The set actually came with all kind of extra tools, hoses, clams etc etc. For me the summit in their eye for detail was that they included different colors of paint to mark the flywheel. (referred to in the manual) Another proof for their eager to sell a superproduct: the manual is normally printed but they include actuall pictures in it to make sure not any info on these pictures would disappear while copying. I unpacked some of the parts just to have a glance at them and all these parts does look very wel made. What I've seen is all stainless steel piping and very solid welding (i'm in the chemical business so i do know some about welding). All clamps are of very high quality and the specially designed parts like the inlet manfold collector are of very good quality too. I confess, i might be called stupid again for buying this set in the first place but what I saw and read so far made me realize that it's worth every penny i've paid. True, I will have a lot of work to do yet and obviously the set must proof itselfe but knowing I own one of these sets ( they appearently produced only 50 pcs) makes me truly happy.
