Is that picture yours? What's wrong with it?

Not sure if the metal it still good enough. Will have it blasted.

I wondered if it is a TVR 'home brew' as I've not seen one like that before.

It does have that look to it - cut and welded from simple shapes rather than stamped and pressed. Presumably the bushes themselves would be standard parts.

RT Racing, before Richard sold the firm), had a back catalogue of sundry chassis parts / brackets such as that that they would get laser cut for the chassis jobs they used to do.

It may be worth getting in touch with Central / RT and seeing if such parts are still available?

Racetech? Just the bushes, not the bracket?

Cheers phillpot - I read it wrong so I'll give them a ring on Monday to see if they do the whole bracket.

Is that for the 'Koala' diff mount? worst case scenario, the rear covers for the diffs are interchangeable so you could use the type fitted to earlier S cars.

It would be great if these were still available I asked a few years ago but no joy.. Klitchki didn't fancy making them at the time as the cost would likely be too high.

I currently run the GrpA style Cosworth / V6 item but have sheared one set of bots already with the Duratec conversion so was looking for something more suited to a higher power.

AAAaah right - I thought they used the Ford 7.5" Sierra/Granada diff

but just googled and they use the BTR or GKN and I know nothing about them
