In keeping with the tradition of American V8 powering the Allards, the Allard J2X MkII chassis is designed to accommodate a GM RamJet 350 fuel-injected V8, the new Chrysler 5.7 L Hemi or the 6.1 L Hemi. Transferring over 400 ft. / lbs of torque to the back wheels is a task that the Tremec TKO 5-speed transmission* does very efficiently.
This fully synchronized competition grade unit has a fifth-gear overdrive to ensure effortless cruising and fuel economy.
With some similarity to the original deDion rear suspension, the J2X MkII rear suspension unit includes a tough 9” centre-section housed in a cast aluminium alloy block. The half-shafts are of hardened steel with equally strengthened universal joints. With its 12” cross-drilled disk brakes located next to the differential, the reduction of unsprung weight on the rear wheels provides a smoother ride and minimal loss of traction on uneven surfaces. The front and rear independent suspensions can be adjusted to the driving task at hand with four fully-adjustable coil-over billet aluminium gas shocks. The front suspension consists of tubular upper and lower heavy-wall seamless steel unequal A-arms with fully-adjustable caster and camber. Similar to the back, braking is handled with 12” 4-piston Wilwood disc brakes. Steering is done through a rack & pinion unit.
