      Don't get your panties in a bunch. It was a compliment to the OP. He doesn't really care if his carpet is torn since he owns an F40. That's doing it right

      The LM units are ball bearing so, at best, you may be able to gain from a better compressor design (there are people who could be talked into designing an upgraded wheel). EFRs could be cool but with something so refined you'd probably gain more from modern tires and dampeners.

      So speaking of dampers, what suspension does the standard F40 come with vs what the F40 LM comes with?

      I thought it funny that you mentioned that you got the F40 running after getting a quick trip to autozone, was it to recharge the drained battery?

      I did send that thread to one of the moderators at Fchat for him to see if he knows anything about it or if he has an idea of who it might be.

      It's a truly fascinating and bizarre story. I think the vast majority of us just wanted to believe you were a reincarnated InternetMeme so that we could have some closure to the whole ordeal.

      Anyway, what a wondeful car. Congrats!

      I'm not sure. I've never gotten to scrutinize a real LM close enough to see.

      The battery we took in was way gone - 0% charge and untestable.. I bought a new battery instead and it's been great.

      Is he the guy from Cali (?) who owns the Lambo Spyder? I can't remember.

      I've actually seen him post as recently as mid- late September, I think.

      And, as for the consistency of his story, it actually matches a lot of the child predators' behaviors on some of the social networking sites. We had a really interesting sermon at church this week titled Facebook for dummies, and it was eye opening how consistent the stories are of people who are trying to pull something over on someone or a group of people.

      Much respect!

      Beautiful car and I'm happy to hear it gets driven.

      A few weeks ago I watched the Top Gear old hypercar v new hypercar comparo where Clarkson re-proclaims his love for the F40. I can't help but agree

      Please don't hesitate to post more pictures, sound clips, videos, drawings, history, stories!

      The bagel on the F40 wing is probably one of the best intro photos I have ever seen on TCL.

      Nice upgrade!

      Well of COURSE I'm jealous! I'd love to have a Ferrari.

      Where do you get F40 LM parts?

      Was this stuff ever sold by Ferrari in any way other than as OE on actual F40 LM's? I guess they have to carry spares, but it seems like anything from an F40 LM must be unobtanium.

      The Enkeis are terrific, I can't wait to see them on the car.

      OP is the king of TCL. Long Live The King.

      I can imagine how that scene played out as the Autozone Associate types in the details into the system computer to get your battery.

      Autozone Associate: What make and year is your car?
      Sherpa: 1990, Ferrari, F40
      Autozone Associate: sir, I'm not seeing this vehicle in our system

      Are you kidding me? It goes more like this:

      Autozone Associate: What make and year is your car?
      Sherpa: Umm, an old Alfa Romeo, sort of a kit car made out of one really. It's not in your computer. Can you just match this size and give me the best one you sell that's not a total ripoff?
      Autozone Associate: Okay, right this way, sir.


      I never ever say it's for a Ferrari. Then you get the dreaded Ferrari Tax overcharge. Seriously.

      I've become really good at cross referencing Alfa and lancia parts over the years, as well as MB parts for the Bosch FI on the 328. Way better for my bank account.

      Yeah sorry. No pics. The one thing I will divulge is that it's built specifically to take Campagnolo's new Record EPS and really rides well without compromising weight or durability.
