That looks great! I am close to completing a black Sprite too. It is my wife's car and she calls it 'Jette'.

Thanks for the congrats guys!!

The car is quit nimble, loves to be in the wheel house of the cam around 3000rpm. Pulls strong, idles around 1200rpm but while holding a steady speed I notice the tach osculates a little and you feel it wanting to buck a little. I plan to richen the main jets up a little to take care of that. Full throttle really has a great throaty sound, as well a great exhaust tone!!


The car is quit zippy with the 5 speed running a 4:55 gear. I have about 50 miles on it, appears to be a smooth brake in with the 1380 engine. The 5 link and coil-overs are all business with no slack or free motion. Spring rate at 165lbs appears to be a very good start.

Plan to finish setting up a little more negative camber on front before pushing the suspension harder to see how all is performing.

The brakes are firm with moderate pedal pressure having bias set at 70% to the four piston caliper front.


Have a little annoying rattle coming from somewhere inside the RH rear, I would like to find that?


That’s it so far!!
