  1. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    Hi all I'm introducing in this thread my race GTV wich I build as far as I (IT Guy) can by my self. As I work on it for quite some years I wont post all the details since beginning here. If you want to see details, just ask or do a quick search on its Facebook page facebook.com/gtv3l Few informations: Hood and bodywork is gfk Extra wide front and rear (295) Yokohama semislicks No A/C and no fan inside all useless stuff is removed ( even radio and so on) The engine is for the moment more or less stock , just a few improvements (because of huge costs of testing to get this for the street in our country) ( but the f430 TB ist allready in my garage ) At the moment im working on a new highflow stainless steal cat and of course further weightreduction (like carbon dashboard, lexan windows, carbon doors...) important to know, this is a street legal track car this makes all a bit more difficult. I'm interested to hear if you like it even if it has just a few similarities with the original model? So here relatively new pictures:

    absolut! hey good news. this saturday it startet first try all soldering was perfect.
  3. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    spal is super durable, since I have that fan I never needed to check the coolingsystem stuff again it just works have a look at this, I gave the ECU a new home. I soldered alot hours ^^' This also corrected the problem of the relays finally ( connectors corroded few years ago ) It really is like Alfa would have planed it originally for midengine ^^' also the timing belt is now easily accessable ^^ just super now putting on the auxillary belt (or so) fill up all fluids, mount battery and pray to god, then turn the key
  4. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    absolut correct I have a big fan from Spal (bought on ebay) which is as high as the cooler. I bought an aluminium cooler for a alfa 155. Perfect fitmet. But there is also this solution: https://de.aliexpress.com/item/32970150067.html?spm=a2g0s.8937460.0.0.17472e0eSpbR7D should alswo work fine

    Carbon fiber

    also incredible much work :S but it will be the ultimate GTV. I even mounted the alternator in front of the engine to get best weight distribution
  7. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    the package ist finished and ready to go finally in. will be a lot fun reconnecting all pipes hoses and wires ^^'
  8. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    btw. the engine is in
  9. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    no, mid engine rwd is best Physical Traction with the less as possible parts, especially rotating parts. The less parts, the cheaper when it comes for upgrades Someday driveshafts will be from carbon fiber and alloy in this car

    Some pictures form last trackday.

    A Nice shot from driving it hard through the alps of Switzerland
  12. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    The beast runs and drives all is comming together Carbon dash, carbon seat struts I soldered the gas pedal connector for more stability At the moment I am building a diffusor. The Quaife Diff arrived, this will be mounted with a solid flywheel and a upgrade clutch. Just a few small things and its ready to hit the road
  13. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    hehe what a coincidence, I did the installation with a friend and in the brake between cutting and glueing we whatched that movie and laught about the same scene^^ I am pretty shure this will happen ^^' with much carbon fiber sparks flying around
  14. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    Here some news. the CF floor is now finished. even when the ultra glue of death was wet it was possible to fully stand on the floor. it actually moved less than the steel one. Now its fully cured. I didn't think that the original floor would be just 1.5-2mm. I could have made the cf one slightly thinner. But anyway its not just weightreduction its also a gain of stiffnes The actual numbers are 6.5kg stock floor 4.6kg cf floor ( I thought it should be just 1.3kg each, but it seams I made more layers in the 45° angle than I planned to do. 0.3kg Super duper Epoxy glue 1.5kg saved ^^' but here we need to add also the seat mountings, wich will go CF of course. this save additional 1kg I think. Ready for the next weight reduction mod ( on some blueprints I saw there is a thick metal under the shifter. This has also found its way to my list also the steel handbrake ) 18VID_78190406_054708_997.mp4

    hehe yes it would be possible get to the level of the One:1 but of course it would be called UNO:1 The Turbo is capable of 1000hp and its not far from that weight but first I have to win in the lottery ^^'
  16. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    Once it will be 100% CF ^^' The dashboard I do in layup style to safe time building a mold Stock 9kg My optimized one before was 2kg and my new 100%cf will be around500-800g
  17. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    Some news Fuel tank is mounted in, with maximal weight reduction fiberglass floor around it ( fiberglass because its temporary, later will the engine come there as you know ) It needed just an additional 200g alloy strut to mount it Perfect Now I need to fill up gas trough the trunk ^^' I'm now finishing the carbon fiber floor in front, 1.3kg each side. so unbeleavable light. You have to totally reconfigure your brain when you hold this crazy light and crazy stable floor in hand the ultra Epoxy glue of death is ordered to fit this in hopefully I save enough weight for this effort ^^' Now with this parts done, I made the brake through to build very strong structural parts I decided to try fabricating the two steel struts on the lower end of the car from carbon fiber Here some pictures

    I have it since a year but not installed XD I will install them this spring

    I love that exhaust looks brilliant when you say wishbones, do you mean just the rubber bushings? In this case maybe powerflex would be the right for you, they also have Lifelong guarantie
  20. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    Thank you for that link
  21. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    Thank you! I will reduce all possible weight. Going for less weight than a 4c! I bought now a TIG welder, so I can weld billet alloy stuff and replace even more heavy parts Also I can weld my insane water intercooler. Thats right, but I don't wanted small turbos wich come on their limit at 6k. I drive my engines hard to the limit and later the limiter will be at least at 8k The turbo is so big, even on lowboost it showels a ton of air in that engine. Even when I would have just 0.2 Bar on low ends it would be a huge mass of air But anyways with the weight of the Car this engine spools up so fast, I rarly drive it on the lower range on hillclimbs with highpower streetcars allready noone defeated my monster (then it was ~80kg heavier than now) it says its for between 320-850hp, but a friend made with one of these 1000hp on the dyno in his supra Of corse I will approach slowly ^^' (1000kg and 600hp would be power/weight ratio like a bugatti ^^) I think the lower end won't be a problem, I will program it to have more a constant powergain than boost punch makes it more drivable. Ah btw. my additional Idea is to make a boost bootle, in which I send the compressed Blowoff air. Either then by boost button or on lower boost recycleable. But thats very far in the future. ^^' Thank you
  22. Alfa GTV CARBONara

    Tripple post, but some news I've cutted out a ton of sheet metal. Also de Fiberglass floor is done ( needs some grinding and painting) Up next is pressuretesting the new Tank Welding a Strut in the back build the carbon foot floor in front put all back together It will be incredibly loud in there :S Oh btw. for my rear engine build I finally recieved the Turbo power up to 1000hp, but of course I start not with full boost, but when we want to build something street legal here (just 20% power increase is affordable) they test it and write down the part numbers but one day I hope to get 3 digit HP on the rear wheels of my gtv would be fun 1000kg 1000hp ^^

    Hi all Big disillusionment, I cut out the fuel tank. Then messured it. Without gas it schould be around 21 KGs. Thought it would be alot more. :'( The new 60l alloy fueltank (60l is needed for longer trips f.E. to track or mountain, when I race it I just fill it as much as needed) is 7KG also including fuelpump and foam. But of course to save as much weight as possible I cut out the whole floor behind the seats and replace it with fiberglass (not carbon fiber because this will be replaced soon with the rear engine swap) After the tank mod, the floor under the seats will be replaced with carbon fiber And when my big oven gets delivered I build a new ultralight carbon dashboard

    Beautiful Pictures!

    Thank you! Yes I know they are quite expensive. But even if theyre just decor parts its a ton of work and big cots for big oven. The market is too small to produce in mass. But I made those anyway just because I wanted them for myself
