Current customer rating: (149 votes) based on
This is predominately a track car. but it's perfectly capable of normal road use. I ve owned this B since 1998 and have built and developed it over the last 16 years. It is reasonably well known at Castle Combe circuit where it's capable of lapping (in the dry) around 1 min 21 secs and probably quicker as that was the last recorded time with the 4. 0 litre crank. it was converted to a 4. 6 litre in the winter of 2012.
The car runs the GEMS engine management system with digital fuel injection on a 4. 6 litre Rover V8 built by John Eales. It has a recently rebuilt (winter 2012) LT 77 5 speed gearbox and a 3. 07:1 Quaife LSD. The car was converted by myself to fuel injected V8 power in 2002 and has done 16. 00 miles. However the engine was rebuilt winter 2012 to 4. 6 with the rebuilt gearbox which have only covered around 1. 00 miles.
This car is well known amongst the MG's on Track fraternity and can be viewed on Youtube by visiting my channel 'mgb40v8' or just type in my name-Richard Cradick.
