74 IROC chassis strengthening

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a definitive list (photos or diagrams preferred) of the chassis strengthening that Porsche used on the 1974 factory IROC cars that were supplied to Penske?

Appreciate any leads

I don't :)

Actually, I didn't know there was additional chassis strengthening on these. Presumably like the seam welding on a 93RS?

There is quite a lot of work. Its around a 20 piece kit.

Last time I was was down at Fenn Lane, Chris was starting to put kits together. I don't know if he ever finished this but worth a call.

The stuff I know about is:

1. Shock tower mounts

2. Gearbox tunnel

3. Spring plate mounts

4. Trailing arm pickups extended

5. Engine bay

6. ARB mounts front and rear

7. Front strut brace mounts

I'm not sure whether they were seam welded at the factory

For what it's worth, Maxted-Page has a genuine IROC in stock at the moment.

Not sure if he would be any help?

Yes that would definitely help. If I can convince them I'm a prospective buyer and crawl all over it taking lots of pics

just saw this; pretty certain they were all built with '73 RS tunnels/torsion bar reinforcement (like early 3.0RS and RSRs.)  I suspect a lot of '73 RSR carried right over.

Bit late to the party but here's some pictures of reinforceing plates as supplied by 

Chris at fenn lane Motorsport .

engine bay corners,shock towers,torsion bar hole plates,front inner wing plate and 

gearbox coupler area to the torsion bar through the rear seat base.

i seam welded in places to stiffen it up ,more because I thought it would help than 

historically correct !
