    Fire Extinguisher Mounting

    Unless you've got closeouts your engine bay is fully exposed along the lower back half of the car and with the race tail you've got even more airflow coming at the engine. If there's a raging fire then a hand held won't do jack, I think we can all agree to that. If you've got a small fire...

    Fire Extinguisher Mounting

    You can see my extinguisher mount in a few of the photos here: https://socalslc.com/2018/09/16/49-working-from-the-inside-out/ A couple of bolts through the floor pan, no biggie. I have a H3R 2.5lb bottle, fits fine and doesn't get in the way...

    Hey Kelly, Check out post 16 from my blog for those details. Sorry, easier to refer you to the link than type it out ;) https://socalslc.com/2017/11/15/16-time-to-give-the-beast-some-legs-and-other-stuff/ I’m not sure what the part number is on my alternator. I’ll see if I can find the...

    Dan's Build

    It would be great if you could throw up a photo side by side of the two fans, noting any dimensional differences and any massaging you had to do with your fabricated shroud to make it all work. Good luck!

    Del's Build: SLC IR/8

    The California DMV provided me with (2) 1-day permits so I could drive my SLC for inspection. I got hard eyeballed by a couple of officers but didn't get pulled over while driving. At the time my car didn't have any plates and was primer gray. You're supposed to sign and date the permits on...

    Scandinavian SL-C build

    Good idea! Maybe a few dowels to connect the two templates to keep them aligned. I tried to do something similar with some insulation foam I purchased from the home improvement store - a bad idea! During cutting/melting the fumes were really bad (even with a good respirator). Then when I...

    Scandinavian SL-C build

    Very very cool, thanks for showing your technique! Be sure to keep in mind where your lap belts will anchor and that you will need to be able to accommodate them - both their location and any turning if they're to be mounted to an eye bolt. You can see the large cut-out I made for the...

    Scandinavian SL-C build

    Hah, we must have had the same pair of guys working on our spiders! My right side was a lot worse than the left. I cut everything out from below, preserving my gel coat and repaired the underside. I ended up having to fill in a good gap between my spider and ceiling panel but I think you were...

    Bellcrank reinforcement plate ideas.

    Looks good! I think I was being overly cautious by going with the plate design that I made. I wasn’t sure how much bellcrank articulation I would need so I designed it to allow the crank to rotate past the reinforced area.

    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...

    Vss-ecm-stalling

    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...
