Re: H Craft GT-R, Jared's build.

Andy;


Nice work on your build. One suggestion: consider using Gates "Power Band" hose clamps instead of conventional worm-drive clamps. These are heat-shrink bands that are very strong and provide a uniform grip around the hose. Also, they do not damage the rubber of softer hoses such as silicone.



Of course you will need to have one removable clamp now and then so the hard line can be disassembled but I'd recommend using a T-bolt clamp for that.

Neil,

The system that you refer to works very well but I'm just wondering if you realize that H has built cars which have logged thousands and thousands of grueling miles under actual race conditions (including finishing the 24 hrs of LeMans!!!!)?? I think he might know what works and what doesn't .

Ron

I was not questioning anyone's resume, just making a suggestion. New, useful stuff comes along now and then and not everyone may be aware of them.
