My Strada 130 track car

Post by mlmotorsport » November 7th, 2006, 10:53 am

Great new forum for Fiat fanciers! Heres my 130....

Image

I have been trying to get it done for the last 2 years! I bought 2 cars from middle barton for quite a good price, the red one as above and a really nice grey one which I got on the road and used as my daily driver for a while, superb tool! Sold the grey one and have regretted it ever since!

Image

I have been collecting bits for the red one over time and am looking forward to getting it done in time for next years sprint season, it is very much a budget project and a lot of the bits have been procurred via an internet auction site and classified ads and a bit of horse trading!, Guy has supplied a few bits as well and has been an invaluable source of knowledge as I am a mini specialist and needed a little insight into the Fiat twincam motor!

Spec:

Lowered front springs and rear leaf spring
Koni Shocks all round
Poly flex bushes
Wilwood 4 piston front brakes
OMP roll cage
Ported cylinder head
Weber 40s
uprated cams
rebuilt bottom end (so i am told!)
Flocked Dash and door cappings

The head and cams where originally fitted on the grey 130, I put it on the rolling road and scored 138 bhp with the c/o off the scale! a leakdown test showed 65% loss on no3 cylinder! the others were not much better so im expecting good results with a head refurb and a sort out of the carbs, I know 45s would be better but the budget says no,

The plan is complete the build up over Jan/Feb next year so will post pics of the completed car then, current project is investigating different wheels i have plenty of 4 spoke pirellis but am looking at something different any suggestions would be welcome.

As I am also a confirmed mini nut here is my other 'hobby' a mini minus fibreglass bodied mini with a self built 1380cc fast road/track day motor.

Image

The body is lower than a stock mini hence the bonnet bulges to cram it all in, its has all the classic mini tuning items such as rally cam, twin HS4 sus roller rockers etc. I am going to change the cam over the winter for one of the more modern profiles which give the same power figures without the 'drama queen' antics of classic fast cams!

Hi,

can you tell me where you got the poly bushes and did you fit these to all the suspension?

Also the brakes and the Koni shocks. I am doing a 130TC Strada up and will be at the suspension stage soon.

thank you,

Col

Sure,

the Konis were a rare new old stock find from my local speed shop, the bushes are just the bottom arms which are Powerflex part no. PFF16-401.

They can do the other bushes if I send them some good condition examples to work from, haven't done it yet!

The brakes are Wilwood Dynalite 4 pots, with an adaption kit supplied by Middle Barton garage, they use the stock disc and fit under the std 14" wheel. Haven't tried them yet as I have no master cylinder! Currently looking at fitting a Lotus Elise pedal box or a bias box, but the choice of pads for Wilwoods is amazing!

Hi MIMOTORSPORT,
Can you tell me which Dynalite 4 pot caliper you have fitted as there are two different piston sizes available for this caliper.

thanks .
