    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    Thats a fair point. I forget how quick I can corner in it. probably faster than the tyres can with stand hehe. For the first time, I felt the weight transfer in it going round a round about really quickly, and had to use the throttle to steer it as the back started to come round on me lol whoops.

    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    Ok my handling is up there, but very modified to make it handle. Brakes though are stock. They work fine, but when I was coming down the back of Mt Beauty in April, I ran out of brakes at the bottom of the road lol. Thankfully there was no cars coming so i could just roll through the T intersection

    Cruise? That would be nearly topped out lol. The Escorts top is about 145km/h

    Transporting engine

    I think i should be ok. We have a left over timber sleeper sitting here i can cut up. I love to make a steel crate/dolly for it. But timber will be faster and easy

    Transporting engine

    Transporting engine

    Hmm i was going thinking of knocking up a timber frame for it to sit in. But i guess a tyre could work. Just figured coming from Shepperton to melbourne something more secure might be the go

    on the escort you will have to cut the radiator shroud and move it forward, same as if you were fitting a 2L Pinto. FYI. the 2.3L Duratec from a n/a Mondeo or Mazda6 would be my choice, and the MX-5 6 speed box bolt up to those engines, and fit into a large aftermarket manual tunnel if i was going to build another one, that would be my choice of running gear

    those wheels. every time i see another Mk1 with the wide steelies, makes me want to sell my RS wheels and buy some of these.

    ok i take that back. the product is cheaper, but its telling me the freight would be 261 pounds...which doesnt seem right, but maybe it is. https://www.burtonpower.com/gearbox-tunnel-round-edges-ford-escort-mk1-mk2-mp1026.html

    yep. but dont buy it from SMCKA lol. let me check Burton's in the UK. its generally cheaper to buy from them, AND, because they use DHL express only, guarantee 3 days to delivery on your door step, from the day you made payment and placed order.

    Trans tunnel was smaller in the uk car as well. They were all built with different tunnels. The single rail 4 speeds are tiny in these. Mk2 had C3 boxes as well here in aus.
