    New SLC

    Hi Ken, welcome! Hey, I was hoping that you have more photos of the cage on your car that you can share. My car is pretty much a track only car and I am looking to upgrade the cage so I am looking for ideas. Great color choice.

    Congrats John!! I too built primarily a track car. I am in Houston and track my car fairly frequently. Would love to do a track weekend together sometime. I have close to 6000 track miles (and about 200 street miles) on the car and have suffered some serious failures that I have posted on...

    SLC Hubs/ race worthy

    Howard, I have ordered new axles rom the Driveshaft shop to connect my new stub shafts. As I mentioned earlier the new C7 hub setup is about an inch shorter than the original setup so I ordered axles for both sides that are 1 inch longer. The cost was a little over $500 with shipping. Should...

    SLC Hubs/ race worthy

    Wow, so let me start off with a mea culpa! I had and have no intention of running afoul of the forum. I guess I am very uninformed when it comes to forum policies etc. That being said I certainly don't consider myself a vendor. I am not sure how you define vendor but I would image that most...

    SLC Hubs/ race worthy

    We got our redesigned rear upright back and it fits!! We are now having the right side made. As I mentioned earlier the C7 hub/spindle assembly is sorter than the existing kit by about 0.78" so you have to either put a spacer between the spindle and the CV assembly or get slightly longer...

    SLC Hubs/ race worthy

    As I mentioned previously I am having new rear uprights made to accept the 33 spline hub bearings that fit the 2009+ ZR1/C6 2010+/C7 (all). This bearing is essentially the same as the XTracker. The upright will be dimensionally the same as the RCR version other than the hub mounting flange is...

    SLC Hubs/ race worthy

    On the rear uprights (and on the fronts also for that matter) since we are making a new upright we can position the hub really anywhere we want in 3d space. If we use the c4 hub face plane as the reference plane then we will design the mounting flange surface on the new upright to accommodate...

    SLC Hubs/ race worthy

    I got a ballpark price for making new rear uprights from a local mom and pop machine shop here in Houston. Around $300 each for a simple slab upright with no pocketing. To reproduce the RCR upright similar to what we have with excess material removed (pocketed) he said around $360. A one...

    SLC Hubs/ race worthy

    Monday I am taking my rear upright (Gen 3??) to my local machinist whom I like, to get an estimate on CNCing a new upright to accept the C7 hub. My son is a mech engineer and does design work with Solidworks 3d cad program. He can 3d image the current upright and then modify it for the new hub...
