Please do not replace your beautiful GT6 with a TR6.

Chassis weak around differential, not enough torsional rigidity, crankshaft and flywheel far too heavy, conrods/stroke too long, and the engines are nowhere near as well balanced as the 2-litre with 76mm bore AND stroke.

Believe me, your GT6 is a better car, as standard.


no offence intended to TR6 owners, they are good road cars out on long distance interstate drives.

I think he was leaning toward a TR4.
It will be a hard change to make, comfort level aside.  
After the 2 litre inline 6, everything sounds like it's running sort of ragged.

GT6 is in the danger zone again.

Talking to a racer about a 63 1300cc Spitfire racer.

Go for it.......you only live once.    It almost sounds like you've had all the fun you can with the GT6 and you want to try something new.  Life is short.....live it to the fullest.

Fact is you only get to enjoy the racer a few times a year - and you need the budget to know you are going to do this.

GT6 you can just jump in and enjoy.

You've hardly done any miles in that GT6 yet Andre - it's so beautiful! I'd be driving it every weekend!

If Andre does sell his GT6......then the new owner will be one very lucky person.  I'd buy it in a heart beat if I was in the market for an early GT6.
