    Anyone got $420k laying around?

    (Mouth breathing ENGAGE) I guesstimate the average “street” spec car Allan builds is in the neighborhood of 100-120k. Throw in the big motor, upgraded interior, electronics, tuning, suspension, brakes, and fuzzy dice. I’m still hard pressed to see where that extra 300k went. That’s not to...

    CamT's build thread

    Went to the local cars and coffee this past weekend and it was a total bust - rain in the forecast so no one showed up. I pulled over to text my father-in-law not to come by then this happened ... :cool:

    Has anyone done the first start and go kart in the same night?

    Congrats AJ, a huge milestone! It’s hard to stay off the throttle, isn’t it? ;)

    Vss-ecm-stalling

    Dan - really interesting observations. Subjectively my recollection is that the DD lagged behind the Aim GPS slightly in both acceleration from stop and deceleration to zero. My display, the proprietary gps sensor, and the DD all refresh at 10Hz but the DD seemed to be laggy or suffered from...

    Del - did you get the GPS antenna for your AIM, or are you planning to use the VSS/reluctor combo for your speed output on your display? If you have the AIM gps sensor then all you need to do for the VSS is feed it a signal whenever you’re moving, it doesn’t care about actual speed (I believe)...

    Anyone have a booster pack?

    Hard to say, I'm sure there are a bunch of factors that go into just how much energy is required to spin start a motor (compression, # of cylinders, # of accessories, starter requirements, etc). I was very surprised to see what it did in the video and was intrigued enough to give them a shot...

    Body making a creaking sound.

    Funny enough I just did a quick search and came across this thread that talks about noisy suspension. Solution was to grease the heims (as Granville did). In this thread CamM refers to QA1 XML rod ends. https://www.gt40s.com/threads/suspension-lubrication.49063/#post-516702 I applied Molykot...

    Anyone have a booster pack?

    Last post on this just to close it all out. I received a replacement from Amazon and the second unit was able to reach 100% charge. I then ran the no-battery test again and while I got an extra whirr out of the starter, there still wasn't enough oomph to start the car sans battery. I'm...

    Body making a creaking sound.

    That's the rod end or heim joint. Fran can tell you what the part number is, they're available from Pegasus or possibly Aurora directly/through a distributor. I think at one point I may have come across a post from CamM with the rod end part number (they've changed over the years). It looks...

    Anybody using scissor lift to SLC

    I did a fair amount of research before pulling the trigger on my 4 post. When it came to single post lifts the only company I was willing to look at was the AC lifts one. https://aclifts.com/lifts/m-1-single-post-car-lift/ Some more reading here if you’re interested in my thought process. I...

    Anyone have a booster pack?

    I did some torture testing with the NOCO. I could only get it charged up to somewhere between 75-100% but never full. I ran my battery down (optima yellow top) to 9.5V (as measured at the battery) and verified the car wouldn’t start. I then turned on my radiator fans, HVAC blower (max)...

    Vss-ecm-stalling

    I meant to get back to this thread to update with my experience. I’m taking a multi-front battle against this stalling issue. I finally have the car driving and idling more like an oem car, feels great not having to watch and listen to engine rpm on the chance I might have to hit the gas to...

    Anyone have a booster pack?

    I'll say one thing for NOCO's customer service - they're exceptionally prompt with email responses. I've been getting responses from their tech folks within 24 hrs of me sending them a question and they've been really forward with information and troubleshooting help. They've offered to have...
