Hey All,

Next week we will be beginning tracklaying for a new series called Strippers. Unfortunately this has nothing to do with women taking their clothes off but actually cars being stripped and tuned.

I need to source some accurate sound effects for specific cars taking into consideration auto and manual gearboxes. Could anyone recommend a good source for these? Below is a list of the cars.

1996 Mitsubishi Evo 4 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX STI

2001 Mini Cooper manual 1985 Austin Mini 1000 manual

1989 Land Rover 2.5 Diesel manual 1989 Mitsubishi Shogun/Pajero 2.5 Turbo Diesel automatic

1984 Porsche 944 2.5 manual 1998 Alfa Romeo 2.0 twin spark petrol manual

1976 MGB GT 1.8 manual 1991 Mazda MX5 1.6 manual (Eunos Roadster)

1986 VW Transporter T25 1.9 petrol manual (water cooled) 1975 VW Beetle 1303 manual

1987 VW Golf GTI 16V 1987 Ford Escort XR3i (1.6i) Cabriolet manual

1997 Audi A8 2.8 petrol auto 1999 Jaguar XJR V8 Supercharged

1984 Corvette 5.7 V8 auto 1993 Ford Thunderbird 3.8 V6 Supercharged auto
