By Daniel Stapleton. This book explains what “high performance” really is, analysing each part of the classic or retro car – the engine, transmission, brakes, etc – and showing how it can be modified and improved for greater performance, both with period-correct parts (where available), and modern components, such as electronic ignition. It provides specific guidance and planning advice, examining the pros & cons, and road or motorsport suitability of each modification. You’ll find information on instruments, engine, gearbox, overdrive, wheels, tyres, supercharging and turbocharging, suspension, oil cooling and systems, clutch, cooling, brakes, back axle and drivetrain, exhaust, dyno tuning, carburation, & preparation for motorsport. Softbound, 144 pages, mainly color illustrations.
