    M6B Tragic

    Those of you that are thinking about your own space frame chassis design should have a long and careful look at this chassis. I don't see a single element I would alter. Really thoughtful work. Some of the most interesting scratch builds seam to come from the southern hemisphere. Really nice...

    No weld fusion on frame welds?

    Here's a thought. If you backed a SLC into a wall hard enough to bend that 2X2 solid upright chassis member, something will have to give. The question is what do you want it to be? I vote for the square section of chassis (the piece that the suspension components are mounted to). This saves the...

    SLC fuel system

    Ya, I agree with Cam, move the pump to the floor of the compartment so that gravity will keep the pump full of fuel on startup. I think the pump will last longer that way. Easy to do now. Otherwise that really looks like the business!

    Discrepancy in header temperatures between both cylinder banks

    Where I worked for many years we maintained very high power control systems for transit trains. I am talking in the range of 500-1000 amps at 1000 volts DC. There were a LOT of heatsinks and blowers involved. In an effort to balance current flow and on/off timing of thyristors systems a lot of...

    SLC 24 Howard Jones

    Well to be fair, that was the first session in the morning and there were several new to the track drivers there. The two straights are very fast and since I still seam to have a vibration as the brakes heat, I was leaving at least a hundred feet more than necessary in the brake zones. By the...

    SLC 24 Howard Jones

    Ran COTA again last Sunday. The car ran generally well without any real problems. That's a first. I still have a vibration in the steering wheel under hard braking but it is better. I think I will need to turn the rotors and see if that makes it go away. I also have a minor oil leak from the...

    Mason’s Build: Superlite SLC

    I would also caution you about the bottom transverse chassis tube you cut out. It is my opinion that you will need to replace that also. How about adding an additional tube to the roll cage that crosses the car low at the rear of the cockpit behind the seats and ties into the two stubs that are...

    Joel’s SL-C Build Thread

    Be sure you check with your wheel manufacture. I found that there are several different manufactures lug nuts that won't fit correctly with the GM ZO6 wheels I use. In the end I bought some GM replacement USA lugs for the ZO6 wheels I use. All good. Beware cheap Chinese lug nut knockoffs. By...

    Drivetrain Options

    Here's some reading. The 377's are an interesting combo with middle of range rod ratios. Built to 450hp that's right at 1.2hp/ci. That's a very good number to run 92-93 octane pump gas in a 10/1- 10.75/1 CR motor. If I was to build a new motor from scratch today I am pretty sure I would do a...

    LED headlights

    I think I may have be more interested in illustrating what I believe has been a very rapid advancement in LED replacement headlight systems. I am hoping to replace my headlights on my GTD and ultimately all the lights the car to LEDs. This project keeps getting put on hold in light (pun) of the...

    Rich, I will PM you with my Ph#. I'm in Central time zone so if you get to a point that you want to talk give me a call. Good luck. Work slow and take a mental break every couple of hours.

    SLC Bump Steer Spacers

    I believe the cars are shipped simplify assembled so as to deliver the parts. IMHO the entire car should be assumed to need a piece by piece dissemble, clean, check out and reassembly. My car uses the original uprights and did not have a double mount (upper and lower) toe rod arraignment . I...

    SLC Bump Steer Spacers

    The way I did mine was, put the car on its tires at correct ride height, Then remove one rear spring and put the whole thing back together without it, set that corner on a stack of 4X4 and assorted shims under the chassis so that it is at same ride height as other side. Now the car is sitting...
