    2020 Superlite SLC For Sale

    160K for a Allan car is a really good deal. This car has some videos on allan's youtube. You can see the turbos here. If I wasn't building one I would buy this one. It will be interesting to see what it sells for. Allan is a master of these cars. He can get the fit and finish on them to put...

    so i have this...MHT https://www.virvig.eu/services/Artec.pdf got it from a design firm that upgraded to a 20K scanner. It has a steep learning curve, but so far it has proven very accurate.

    Kurt H (hoffkm) SL-C build thread

    Seriously, I have mill envy. No way I could have gotten a full sized one into my shop. I am going to have to do something similar to my street clam if I keep it, just not enough room to clear my drive mount. Why do you think you are not aligning right in the rear wells?

    If you do the math, there is really not that much coolant in the system when the cells are in the standard close packed honey comb arrangement, line dead space actually is a significant percent of volume. I think the dow fluid is really nice, I've used it on other non automotive projects. has a...

    Hence the testing :) Xing is doing it, so there is a way. I don't think the electrolyte is missiable in the Dow fluid, and unless electrolyte weeps out under normal use, I don't think there will be enough pressure from the fluid to cause fluid exchange. My plan if it was an issue was to o-ring...

    Hi guys, sorry I have not been getting alerts in my email from post activity. Quick answers to some questions. On block off plates, I have designed my own. I have only done the one for the drive itself, not the inverter. I 3d scanned the drive face, took a section and made the plate...

    Oh a real big one is coming. I have been hard at work building a solid workshop for myself. The warehouse I was using had to start being used to actually store things other then my crazy projects. So, the wife decided to let me convert our abandoned/failing carriage house into a workshop. I...

    S2's Build Thread

    I have a early body at least 2010, mine passes the light test, but It has been moved probably 10+ times, and was used as a display for some kind of CNC booth at trade shows. Its got alot of surface scratches. I have talked to a few body guys about taking molds. It's not that expensive. More than...

    Tavarish finally got his SL-C project

    Yup. He pops into my youtube feed now and again. I suspect he bought this one quite a while back, and realized it was going to be alot of work to build the franken car he wanted, and got rid of it. I also don't think his audience is too interested in a full fabrication build, he seems to get...

    Tavarish finally got his SL-C project

    And.....he traded it for a FD. Probably to put the 3 rotor in.

    SLC 001 Build

    The corvette forums are not really the place to go to get feedback on them. Mostly they just complain how expensive they are, and how they all wish they had gotten a cheap option.... In reality, most of the guys on the forum never track their cars, and probably don't put that many miles on...

    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...

    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...
