  1. Alfa GTV Competizione

    ok ok, you get pictures I moved today to my new and bigger garage where I have finally more space I had extended the splitter and also built fittings for the new carbon canards (but I am not shure if they are going to accept them ^^ ) Of course I need to paint the grill black and so on, but April is every year a lot of work to do at the office.
  2. Alfa GTV Competizione

    Yesterday I painted the GTV white and also made a stickerset This time the martini racing design will be alot more agressive, because its now widebody in front and rear and I can cut the stickers now at home as well as the stripes I will do myself so I can be shure its exactly as I want it The next weeks will be a bit quiet. Mainseason at the office and I'm moving to a bigger shop which I have to furnish at first. So the next steps will probably follow in two - three weeks when the workload gets less I don't share intentionally the pictures from the GTV in white because I have done some details which noone knows until now They will be kept as secret until I share progress with the martini design

    at the moment I'm preparing it for painting but at the same time I'm moving to a biger shop. Where I then can build all those Carbon fiber parts for the mass As you have seen on the pictures before there was a steelstrut under the roof. (which of couse was not very stabile) I built this also with carbon fiber Steel 600g Carbon 200g ^^ not that its necessary or relevant, but because I can^^ Its now much stronger than the steel one safety first Btw. just to be sure, do you also think I should redo the martini racing design ? (but this time its getting a bit more brutal )
  4. Alfa GTV Competizione

    I open them with the normal lock just not mounted yet The original factory weight I can't say, but with window lifter and all this stuff it weighted a ton should be at least 35kg each I think.
  5. Alfa GTV Competizione

    combined with the new roof I'm now slightly under 1100kg it should be at 1098kg I've cutted out the original 6kg roof, welded the cage to the cassis and then clued the 2kg carbon roof in with a epoxy glue and fixated it with rivets. I saved 4Kg at the highest point of the car and increased the stiffnes very much. Thats a huge success. One of the next steps will be to replace the top strut under the roof also with one of carbon fiber of course this should be maybe an other kg or 2 also on a very high point

    Btw. the doors are mounted. I calculated 22kg saved with this
  7. Alfa GTV Competizione

    good that you ask the outer Panel is 10kg+isolating mat, mine is 2kg. I will produce them in serie with 3kg. They will be available in my shop later. (My shop is in work, will include some carbon 916 stuff, shipping worldwide ) If you don't want to give up electronic windows and don't have a cage in it (then you shouldnt remove the strut inside the door) you could save around 10kg this would make 20kg complete. But there are a lot cheaper ways to save weight. My Door is now 6kg I saved another 22kg at the doors. Now I will finish all stuff up, paint it and get it ready for road Of course I will post some pictures here during this process, or its also almost live available on inst*gram (sorry for advertising :S ) .

    Nice work! Must sound brutal what material is it?
  9. Alfa GTV Competizione

    At the moment my parts are not shiny enough to sell. To produce view carbon with the 3d finish it needs a lot of work and also 20°C more temprature then now at 0°C :S But I will just paint it with a very thin layer, so you can see its carbon fiber, but not that haevy finish coat Btw. at saturday I started with my doors. now 17Kg (allready haevily lightend, original will be at least 30kg ) Target is below 10
  10. Alfa GTV Competizione

    Yes thats why I will drive it in summer and build it in winter, I want to enjoy and test the new mods This is why I bought the 166 to build that engine the engine in my gtv I will remap with a very aggressive map and 8000rpm and of course I will programm a IMMO OFF to save the weight of the immo box Yes I know the bimotore, this is why I know that the engine fits and also this is the reason for my 166. They also built this with a subframe from a 166 but of course I can't let both engines in there after my weightsavings. and 2 fully built engines would be a bit expensive ^^
  11. Alfa GTV Competizione

    So Trunk and roof finished, the trunk is allready mounted. Its 5kg as predicted. It's so light I needed to remove the lifters to close it^^' Later I will install some hood pins or how they're called, because I of course removed the lock. ( the trunk is of course now ruff and dusty, I will finish it when I repaint the car ) (I will paint the carbon like on the F40, not "view carbon" a glossy finish, rather a such thin paint that you see the carbon fiber structure ) Now I'm looking forward to get positive feedback of the material test, when I recieve this I will start to build carbon fiber doors and a new carbon fiber dashboard. I'm shure I can buld now a dash around 800g (instead of my actual 2.2kg; Original was 9kg) Btw. some crazy news. I bought an Alfa 166. This summer I will try to twinturbo this. And the master plan is to put this engine and Frontaxle in the trunk of my gtv (and of course remove the front engine) This will be a totally crazy build^^' If here are any sponsors please tell me
  12. Alfa GTV Competizione

    Its getting crazier every day The roof is finished. Now I build a carbon fiber trunk should this wil save at least aditional 10kg (the actual is around 15kg) After finishing the trunk I will paint them and cut the steel roof ( In same step I will weld the cage to the chassis on top). A bit later I think I will also do the doors but first I have to pass the material test to drive it legally on the road and also because I want to be save of course. One of the next steps is to build the strut under the roof also with carbon. Shall I also do the floor carbon? the rear side wall I will probably do next year when I've got done my engine plans but my plans are allmost too crazy to write it down^^ In the last months I learned how to chiptune. I also want to remap it very aggressivly this spring So long story short heres an new picture from the process btw. please if you see any weight tell me, its really difficult now on the picture I'm producing the negative of my allready modified trunk.

    check this relays: http://www.squadra916.com/forums/topic/4071-starting-problem/ I had similar issues on my cf2 3l
  14. Alfa GTV Competizione

    Corresponding to my calculation the steel roof weights at least 11kg. for the carbon fiber roof i Used 1.2kg epoxy resin and 2.32kg carbon fabric. But it should weight less than this at the end, because I cut off the overlapping parts and also some of the resin will be pressed out the form. I guess it willl be around 3kg at the end + 100-200g paint, sealant, and rivets. I also think It should be harder than the original roof, and it gives me the possibillity to weld the cage from above directly to the chassis which will also increases the stability But at the moment its a very boring process, because of the low tempratures here its allready hardening for x days now
