    Thinking about Stripes

    Thinking about twin racing stripes down the center. Noticing that when a line is run from front to rear centered on the car it doesn't center on various features like the NACA duct that's in front/center of the windshield. So do you center on features or center overall on the car?

    New Chassis

    Drawing a new chassis in Solidworks, pretty much a lot of changes from what I actually built. Learned lots of things building. This is about 4 days work. Still a ways to go. Wish I had Solidworks before, it's way faster than Acad. Found some new tubing sizes for the diagonals, .75"x1.5"x.083"...

    Price Gouging

    My GT40 has a hydraulic E-brake and I'm trying to find a single 3/4" pull type master cylinder that's compatible for the limited amount of space above the rear tunnel. A post in the brake forum revealed an AP reverse pull master sold by "Essex Parts Services" back east. Well I figured out what...

    Fastest Production Car Is Now In USA!!!

    Don't know where to post this, it's not directly related to the GT40 but it is a mid engine V8. The world top speed record for a production car has been broken, it's no longer the Veyron, it's now a local (Wash. state) effort. The SSC Ultimate Aero. Not bad for 1/3 the price of the Bugatti. No...

    Brake Master Question

    Building a hydraulic E-brake and was wondering if there's such a thing as a single brake master that is pull actuated? (instead of push). Have seen this with slaves but not with masters.

    Video Posting

    Is it just me or is there a problem posting videos? Tried to upload an .avi but it's not happening. Even better would be an imbed, that way GT40's wouldn't have to host it but you could see it directly inside a post.

    G50 Shift Linkage

    Here's something I've been working on. It's an Adesk Inventor animated solids drawing of a cable shift linkage for the G50-05. The cables are on the left and right and the trans shift shaft is the dark grey one in the center. Inventor is one step up from Autocad but it's still a mid range...
