I have no idea how many Steve built - 5 or 6 would be my guess. Topcats have been churning them out as well, and I'm sure there are a few other places doing them as well as home builds. I'd guess over 30 LSx TVRs out there?

Not sure SH did as many LS conversions as people think and without getting into the politics of it there seems to be at least two people who are very unhappy with cars that don't work! I've only heard one side of the story but there is definitely some bad feeling there!
Problem is when people try and air their grievances the thought police just press delete frown

There are quite a few things i am not happy with on my LS Tuscan

Not sure if its OK to slag the builder (me) off on here or if i would be in breach of the N and S

policy but will risk it anyway

1 way over budget

2 car was late being completed

3 builder left the AP clutch in the LS ate 2 of then in 3 months,

his excuse was you see all these people running big HP speed sixes

they dont spit the clutch out

Cant believe clutches are still a problem, are the race proved clutches not sorting the problems?

I bet its worth it now though? I'm currently in Bordeaux in my Sag travelling with my mate with an LS7 powered t350. I have discovered over the last few days how terribly slow my sag is in comparison!!!!

Slim, you'll need to be quick if you want it, there are other parties interested in it.

Fantastic! Have you ever noticed when you step on the gas it shouts AWESOME to you! biggrin

I'm so excited. Ken at Racing Green has been great and ticked all the boxes. I'm changing the wheel colour to shadow chrome, having the nose resprayed because of the stone chips and getting it shielded. I flipping can't wait... just hope I get it before heading back to work!!
