Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Ah it's a slow process to get up and went after Christmas holidays. All the engineering shops are walking around scratching goolees and finding somewhere to hide having got used to the layback of the holiday season. As the system inches forward, I might be getting some of my parts to install. The en...

Re: Alfa Romeo 75 3,0 V6 Gr. A Conversion from 12V to 24V

Very nice car. Doesn't matter what car you want to compete with. A good illustration of how much the overall racing pace has moved on and how tougher it is to get to the pointy end in terms of power. (leaving variables like driving skills aside). Frankly, that is how it should be otherwise we would ...

Re: MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE

2019
What's with all the snow on the logo?
Don't you know that in the important part of the world bushfires are raging due to the high temperatures drying everything to the sheithouse?

Despite all that, everyone have a safe and happy Christmas.

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Because this car will use coil overs, the damper tower will carry all the suspension stress. It should therefore be strengthened up to take the load and triangulated to distribute this load.

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

The following work is not radical but I have not these seen minor modifications elsewhere. It is my standard practice. When installing large anti-roll bars, the original fixings tend to crack unless strengthened up. Please note that welds are not shown as complete. I am also using a gas-less flux co...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Hey Kevinovski ! How deep do you think my pockets are ? ATM I am trying to sell my GT to finance some of my machining work.

Unlike the Greekster, I cannot set up a lemonade stand and serve people with dark glasses and a walking cane pretending to raise money for the blind.

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Kevin, The cage is basically just tack welded in place. The engine bay components I will install when I know what sort of engine I will put in it. I will do my usual stiffening treatment to deal with the loadings of the coil over suspension. At the moment I am welding in some reinforcements to the f...
