    Ford GT40 Factory Blueprints Chassis plans from Ford Advanced Vehicles

    I've never found a complete set. Occassionally, you see a seller with 4 sheets selling for $10 a sheet. I'm suprised its not openly sourced at a reasonable price.

    How long until we can get back to the track?

    The Drivers Edge had their first track day at MSR Cresson, Texas on May 2-3. It was a great time, and nobody died. A Mustang wound up with the wheels up, after a couple of rolls, due to COVID. On Thursday the track had a member day and it was packed........business as usual. There were...

    Heavy steering

    Gyroscopic or caster are the likely culprits, as it is speed dependent. Down force would only decrease your camber (make it more negative, top in) and increase your toe in. I suspect the suspension was designed to become more stable at high speeds, thus the heavy steering. If you can reduce...

    Capacitance Fuel Probe / Sender

    The problem with capacitance systems is that they are calibrated for a specific fuel dielectric. If you get race gas, ethanol mix, or water in the fuel, the gauge will no longer be accurate. This has been a big discussion in the homebuilt aircraft community. Here is a quote from a popular...

    Safety wire

    Scott and I are both aviation mechanics. Safety wire is not meant to keep a bolt or nut torqued. It's there to stop the un-torqued bolt or nut from completely backing off of the fixture it's meant to fasten, and departing the fixture. It's there to prevent a spinner that has become un-torqued...
