    Aaron's SL-C build...

    At one point I had LS7 with LS7 manifolds, cats, no mufflers, side exhaust. With the manifolds, there really is not room for Cats and Mufflers - might not be impossible, but real tough. With true headers, you would not have room for any effective muffler. Not that I have a problem with that....

    Fling SLC Build Thread

    It sounds a lot like our Sprint cars. Just does not rev as fast (keep in mind we run mechanical FI and no flywheel/harmonic balancer).

    Fling SLC Build Thread

    That car has a LOT of overlap in the cam. Does it have a 4/7 swap?

    Mason’s Build: Superlite SLC

    I have the mother of all turbos in front of LR wheel. About 12" of 4" pipe and it exits in front of the rear wheel. Actually above is an old pic. Here is a post turbo pic....

    Mason’s Build: Superlite SLC

    Keep it! Although I have no idea why you put a muffler on it ;)

    Graziano Gearbox Support

    I'm more than happy with the drop gears I got from John @ HCF a while back. Here is the post where I passed on my thoughts about them. I think most guys with a V8 hung on the front of the Graz would be happy with some type of gearing change...

    I switched from DBW to cable. I’ve re-worked the cable once to remove a 90 bend at the peda because it had too much friction. my current setup uses one off brackets to allow the cable to come straight back from the pedals along the center spar. Through the fuel tank hole, then a big S bend to...

    Setup for top speed run?

    Caster 6, camber 1, toe we measure in inches, with nose off. 3/8” front toe in as measured from back of tires to front of tires (is that clear?). Sorry for the toe in inches, but we are dirt guys 90% of the time. Was only a few years back that we stopped eye-balling the toe ;). rear we are...

    Setup for top speed run?

    In relation to Hill's comments, I should mention I have front fender vents, run the car at 3"F, 3.5"R, Street tail with the whole back end of the the tail removed (from taillight to taillight and down to the bottom).

    Setup for top speed run?

    Sorry for the late reply. I've run Texas Mile after some high speed on-road racing. I removed the wing also. First time I had run over 60mph w/o the wing. Over the years I've been dialing out more and more AOA on the wing, so probably don't have a huge amount of downforce now. I still found...

    Sorry for the late reply, I've not been on the forums for some time. The orange is AWSOME!

    Converting RHD SLC to LHD

    Lol. We have wooden blocks (cut from 2x4s) for the Sprint Car. Every race night starts with the car "blocked" (ride height set) for the track we are at and then we adjust from there. I have had adjustable blocks. But at $80 or so a pair, all those times I left them on the car when it headed...

    Mark B's Build Thread

    Mark, Your hinges look good. I have the machine tools (Mill, Lathe, etc) and I'd be OK with those. But, you might think about increasing the size of your pivot bolt. It's taking a lot of load in shear. Should probably be a good quality 3/8" bolt. As for finishing those, a router (wood...

    Bob's EV SLC Build Log

    I use it all the time. Have had exhaust flanges, trans adapter (Graz to 1UZ), steering wheel all cut. Just make a drawing from the 3D and exported the drawing as DXF. My laser/water jet shop has always been happy with the files.

    Suspension design

    That’s appropriate. We typically trash bars with aluminum rod ends 1-3 times a season. If there is any sign of damage the rod ends get replaced. Those that make it through that typically get a bit loose after about 20 race nights. That’s probably about 10 hours at speed. Asphalt guys can do...

    Koso temp sensors question

    I think you will have a hard time finding anyone using the Koso dash. Most modern dashes use either CanBus and/or OEM style sensors which are not overly sensitive to wire length (i.e. they typically are fed 5V and the dash reads output voltage). I have considerable experience at work with...

    Anti-Lock Breaks System

    I'll add here that I am in the other camp. I *love* manual brakes. The pedal force helps plant you in your seat. If you are used to them they are easy to modulate and together with manual steering they provide good feedback to the driver. If you are not used to them I fully understand...

    possibly the sickest engine/tran package for an SLC ??

    Sorry for my slow reply. Have not been on in a while. Mine sees little around town driving. When it does it usually involves lights and a discussion about not having plates, insurance, etc. Don't have any great pics that show cooling. Here are some general ones... Fitting oil pump and...

    Suspension design

    It's got heims at all three corners of the to A arm. You'd have to do a lot of simulations to see which are more loaded in what circumstances. As long as they replaced before badly warned (with Quality 4340 ones), I would never expect a problem with them. We run aluminum suspension heim's on...

    possibly the sickest engine/tran package for an SLC ??

    I have a 1UZ now. Switched after blowing LS7 and LS1 (LS is great, I just needed a change). The 1UZ is just as tight as an LS. DOHC does that. My engine is built, dry sump and has a large single twin-scroll turbo. About 1000hp when turned up. With my setup, water cooled turbo, water cooled...
