Black Beauty revisited

Hi Jack and Tyson,

I was trolling thru the BB2 threads again and some thoughts came to mind:

Any data on how many degrees of torsional twist on BB2 after the
chassis mods? And do you know how much a stock car has?
-- How much of that is due to the roll cage as vs. the R. shock tower reinforcements?

Some have claimed that a complete strut is needed to tie R. shock
towers together instead of the triangular reinforcements used. Is that not needed with the roll cage? Or do you just disagree with that?

Do you think either type of reinforcement would be noticable on a
street/DE car with no roll cage and stock tire widths?

The engine does not have variocam - is that right? Were any mods made to the engine for lower wt. or increased power?

The F. suspension has the JRZ sturts operating on the stock steel
A-arms? No erp/935 style F. A-arms?

How much wt. did the MG case on the 915 tranny save?

Thanks again for telling the story of this very interesting car!
