    Help with 930 CV joint boots

    The 3/8's: Excellent eyes Jim. I have zip ties on mine (black, they blend in with the dirt on them). When I did Vaughn's we used the clamps linked above...

    Rcr 40-31

    This was the highlight of the trip (pic linked from internet, not mine, definitely not from today). Getting to drive this:

    Rcr 40-31

    If you ever head this way Tom, please drop a line. I'd be happy to burn a little gas with you. The local Cobra Club (FFR) guys are fairly tolerable too! I am over 5300 on the clock now and the car is such a blast.

    Rcr 40-31

    More wheel time today. Butch is the man when it comes to getting around. No heater/defrost/AC in his roadster (no windows or wipers either). I'm sure you'll notice the backdrop... The Gorge is beautiful but it was a little earlier than we (read: I) realized. Yes, that is snow all around...

    Alan's RCR40

    I won't offer any spoilers here, but I will tell you someone has been exceptionally busy! I offer a photo as evidence: I'm certain he'll provide an update soon. This car is beautiful and he's doing an excellent job with his work.

    Please Post your location

    An ironic reminder from the tranny guy! Oh, and done. Or more accurately, was already there- but in the bio section. I didn't find a state or city option in the dropdown menu. Please point out where I missed it if I did.

    Rcr 40-31

    I've stumbled across a neighbor, Butch, who is positively addicted to driving his FFR roadster... Addicted as in he has logged over 180,000 miles on it in about 15 years (I forget exactly how long ago he built it). He makes a point to drive it every month of the year, and Fri morning there...

    Would that be Miles on the left?

    An option if you miss the political discussions we had in the Paddock.

    From my perspective, I'm not sure how asking someone where things stand from time to time translates into effort trying to make something happen, although I may be missing some aspect of this situation though. My challenge to you Doug was that if you knew of a DIY chatroom that could be set up...

    Who has the best chassis?PROS and CONS

    Hi Ramon, This is effectively like asking someone, "What's the best color?" Your question will have different answers for anyone who asks it depending on what the goals for their car are. All the manufacturers you list have been around for a while- and some much longer than others. They...

    An option if you miss the political discussions we had in the Paddock.

    Yep. No desire to read it previously, now, nor when it's filtered off behind a curtain. My encouragement was that if it's important to you, throw your hat in the ring and get involved to make it happen- embrace that whole "be part of the solution" mindset. Get it set up and take those...

    An option if you miss the political discussions we had in the Paddock.

    Good luck pushing that rope Doug! I appreciate all the volunteering our moderators do to keep this place running. Can't get a restricted access, controversial topic sub-forum going? Bummer. I won't miss it at all. There is an amazing social connection and wealth of knowledge on this board-...

    Axle bolt Sizes?

    Hey Mitch, I might be late to the party but just went through this with Vaughn. The outboard (hub-side) bolts should be M10 x 1.5 IIRC. Give that a try. Chris

    Roadster replica?

    I'd bet that is Chris Ardern with He's based in OH and runs with Corvette gear front and rear. Looks like C4 front suspension in that pic.

    Gravity Racer, take III

    Rear steer is unattractive to me, as the primary method of directing the front end into a corner is to direct the rear end out. That feels like a recipe for disaster. I was privy to discussions about rear steer in a Formula SAE car where they tried to incorporate it but they found it a bit...
