Re: The State of Italian Car Design

Fiat design ceased when Cesare Romiti fired Vittorio Ghidella, the last car guy to run Fiat. After that Fiat was in steady slide downhill.

You know current racing is boring when....

Autoweek talks about the fist fight at the 1979 Daytona 500 and yet another , Group B video.

Re: Front Spindle Question.

I was led to believe that you want the lower control arm horizontal and not angling up from the chassis mounting point to the hub. Correct but when you install lower springs that is what happens.
