Hi JD

The tall back end remains a concern. I'm hoping that the extra power and torque of the 907/912HC hybrid engine will compensate for the tall gearing. But we'll see. These things are a matter of taste, and I'd prefer my GT to live up to its name as opposed to being an out and out street racer...

If I do need to change the back end, I'll probably go for an Atlas axle out of a Ford Cortina / Capri, rather than the Viva HC 3.73:1 axle. The Ford unit is more robust, easier to come by, and parts and different ratio CWPs are widely available.

Best wishes,
Nigel
