Mind Those Ercos

We were trying to get Alex Thorn's car ready for the VolksWorld Show . However , Alex noticed this rather nasty crack in one of his race weight front Erco's , whilst cleaning them . This , on top of a few other problems ( waiting for the inlet manifolds to be gusseted and the exhaust header rubbing in places ), meant the car didn't make it to the show . The wheels were on the car when Alex bought it , and I've never really liked the idea of race weight wheels on REAL street cars . I'm having the wheel repaired , and will try and get a replacement in the mean time . Then this wheel can be relegated to a spare .
