My partner, Scott, had a 440 for a while. He may remember how his was done. Let me send this to him and see what he has to say.

Hello Tony,

This is Yan (noodle), a graduate student from Cambridge University. I’m currently working on a research project concerning the significance of keywords in product marketing. I really appreciate if you can spend 1 min on this tiny survey, and ‘comment’ your answer back to me.

How often do you use the words (as shown below) in search engine (like Google) if you are in need of relevant help for your Lola cars?
Please mark each option in 1, 2 or 3. (1. Never used; 2. Used sometimes; 3. Frequently used)

Lola car:
Lola racing car:
Lola part:
Lola spare:
Lola component:
Lola heritage:
Historic Lola:
Lola service
Lola restoration

Any other frequently used words?

Thanks a lot for your support!

Hi Tony,
I haven't been to Australia, but at one time was planning on a trip to see the Surfer's Paradise Champ Car race, but we all know what happened there.
I don't get much info on Formula Fords. I do have lots of pictures of Formula Fords though. The odd time I get Australian FF news, but not often. If you have a connection to change that, please let me know.

Nice to have you in the group!

Tony, I just spent some time on Wakefield's website. Nice looking track! I'd love to spend some time on it! If I get over that way, will you show me around?

Let's use email to continue this. Contact me at I have a wheel that I can sent you. I know that these wheels come with different offsets, so you want to be sure that my wheel matches yours. I measured mine by putting a straight edge across the inside edge of the wheel (without tire), then measured the distance from the inside hub to the straight edge to be 2 1/2 inches. For the outside the same measurement was about 2 1/4 (from where the lug nuts meet the wheel to the edge of the wheel). LMK if that'll work for you!

Sorry for the delayed response! Went racing last weekend!

I would suggest putting a want ad (it's free) on the Apexspeed website. It is an excellent source for Formula car parts, cars, and info. I recently needed to find a front upright for my T640, and got hooked up with one by posting an ad there and being patient. All you need to do is sign up.
Good luck.

In 2009 the Runoffs were at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

These wheels are are a pain to find with the 2 1/2 backspace. I believe Revolution make a 3 piece modular that may do the job. There website always seems to be down but here is their address in England.
Holyhead Road, Ketley, Telford, Shropshire, TF1 5DY, United Kingdom
Telephone:(01952) 614402
You can sometime find one on Apexspeed.
Is there any chance you could repair the broken one?

Good luck

I probably have one of those, but will have to check. Won't be back in town for about two weeks though, so I'll need a little time. I have had success finding wheels on
