    Bob's EV SLC Build Log

    So I have not opened the drives yet to swap out the gear sets and replace the open diff with locked differentials. This is getting done when I pull everything off and the chassis goes out to get the drive assemblies welded on. But my plan is to remove the internal lubrication pump, and replace...

    Bob's EV SLC Build Log

    sort update. I recently picked up some new tools to aid in the fabrication. The delay using 3dhubs to get parts milled is just not tenable. I picked up a artech 3d scanner, a hytb5 5 axis mill (cheap Chinese desk top mill), and a shopbot buddy cnc router. Just got them all setup and produced...

    Mazzei Formula 5 Rotor Turbo SLC Build Thread

    hot damm, now that's a build. That thing is going to be loud! I know a certain youtube personality that is going to be envious. Is that the factory race cage? Or are you building a custom one? Bob

    Bob's EV SLC Build Log

    I picked up a r8 spyder, v10 gated manual. It has a twin turbo kit on it. Very fun, summer only. I bought it as mostly an investment, but it's too fun not to drive. Wife is not happy with how loud it is. We have been a full electric car household for about 4 years, and she does not miss the...

    Rear Suspension Travel

    My push rod was defiantly making contact with the top A arm in the rear. I am going to be running torsion bars for my springs, so I am not using a dampener at the stock location. I should be able to get the full ~3.5 inches of travel, even with the lift kit on there. My feeling is that the car...

    Rear Suspension Travel

    Hi all, anyone know what the "stock" rear suspension travel is? On my car, when I received it, the swaged tubes were making contact at full droop when the car was jacked up, with the QA1 shocks on it, and was getting maybe 2" of travel on the rear wheels. I do not know if they were ever set up...

    Thanks Hector I often think I bit off more than I can chew with this one, but I really am in no hurry to get it done. Picked up a nice fun car to drive for the summer, and having a lot of fun and learning a whole lot, so it is a big win for me. I spent a good year and a half looking for a...

    Door sealing issues at high speed? Design flaw?

    Yeah, so is pressure differential in side to out, or air acting on the doors? Seems sealing might not help too much, there really isn't anything holding that back corner of the door closed

    Door sealing issues at high speed? Design flaw?

    see this video Around min 3, as the car is hitting its speed max, the doors look like they are separating from the body. I can't tell if it is downforce on the body, or pressure venting from the cabin. But that behavior can't be right? Someone has to know the owner. Is this a behavior all SLC...

    Bob's EV SLC Build Log

    Hubs, rotors, calipers and one set of stub shafts are in. Waiting on the C7 stub shafts from the drive shaft shop. Sketched up my rear adaptor, it is attached below. I am going to retain the stock SLC off set, and use my ccw 18 inch rims for now, maybe go to the forgeline 20/19's at some point...

    Questions about SLC wheel offset and carbon ceramic conversion

    So got the c7 z06 rotors and calipers yesterday. They are very similar to the existing rotors. Distance from bottom of rotor to mounting surface is identical. They actually fit inside my 18 inch ccw's, barely. About .55 inch clearance. Just need a different caliper mount. So going to keep the...

    SLC Hubs/ race worthy

    So I am going ahead with the c7 hubs. Working on a adaptor now, but need to wait or the rotors and brakes to come in.

    SLC Hubs/ race worthy

    I thought of that, but none of the information I have shows that as a option for his order. The hub has a mark of WBI 513020 AN615/201/10 on it. 513020 googles to a timken wheel bearing...

    SLC Hubs/ race worthy

    OK, I can finally add to this thread. I am doing the conversion to c7 hubs on my rear right now, and I think I have a generation of upright not shown in this thread yet. See pics bellow. Sorry for not rotating them, posting from my phone. What I have looks like the flat upright with an pocket...
