      YES I MUST SAY THAT SUMS IT UP, HAS BRM UPGRADED THE SPURGEAR OR IS IT STILL THE SAME ONE USED ON THE ESCORT.

        It appears the Alfa shares the same headlights as the Mini. I have the Mini and the rear camber is odd. I wish they made the angle adjustable but it's fixed.

        It has stub axles in the front with no camber which is fine by me.

        Looks like I’ll have to pick up a pair of front axle towers to put on my Escort, along with Kadett front tires to replace the tractor tread tires it came with.
        I’m still baffled why they have to have cambered front axles on some of these cars. Heck, I’m baffled on the rear cambered cars.

      That is sharp! I almost got one last week but, grabbed a 512.

      Spurs/crowns.
      The crowns that run in the Grp C, 917, 512...have been retooled, they are nice, if you’ve seen a Mid America Raceway crown, they are that crisp. Listed, they say New Tooling, and ones listed that end in an S, a Simca designation, are the same as the ones mine as above run.
      The latest AW crowns/spurs I’ve gotten are of the same caliber.
      And, photos of Ergal anglewinder gears for Escorts I’ve seen look as great as the ergals I put in my slot.its, very nice..

        Here’s a good link on the stub axles: https://www.freeslotter.de/index.php...nd-einstellen/
        My Escort stub axles also required work for them to roll well. In addition, I had to respect the rear wheels to eliminate body rub. As the scribes says, if you don’t want to work on the car, don’t buy a BRM.

              There were at least 5 others that I didn't look at. I should clarify, this is Not a Cars & Coffee event, it's a local gathering, every Saturday in Crystal Cove, CA. I only stated that first because it's easier than typing all this out.

            There's also a YouTube channel called Home Built by Jeff and he's putting a Ferrari V8 into a Alfa Giulia.
