Speedway Motors - Australia vs USA

Recommended Posts

Better late than never...

 

I've been told the US mob are a LOT cheaper than their competitors, but that's all I know.

What are you looking at purchasing from them Peter?

I'm after these bushed rod ends:

The US mob got back to me and they want $90US to post 4 out here!

 

The Aussie mob are away until the 24th - sounds like something of a one man show - but they claim to have fortnightly bulk shipments sent out.

 

I have contacts in the US and I often end up having items posted to them and they forward the item on to me. Someone wanted $119 to post a Le Mans filler cap but a fellow 250GTO owner posted it to me for $12!

Thanks, but I phoned last month just to get a price on those but I couldn't even get a ring-tone. I've been all over the place to 4WD specialist, suspension shops and race car fabricators but nobody seems to have that particular type.

 

Also, I need a 5/8" bore to match the 16mm spindle pin.

 

I think the forged Speedway ends look more like a Ferrari production item from the 60s so that's why I'm keen on them. I'm making new LCAs mainly for appearance but designed them to have some adjustment as it was easy to incorporate.
