1300? You'll have to elaborate Jac.
Super niceFront anti-roll bar made and trial fitted.
After a little over 17 years it is standing on its own feet. You forget how low these things are. Looks the business with the bodywork on (in my opinion...).View attachment 97236View attachment 97237View attachment 97238View attachment 97239
hi how do you phase out the u -joint drive shaft on the wheel side against the lobro joint on the gearbox? anything spécial?Not original equipment back in '66, but I figure I will need this skid plate to avoid speed bump rash.View attachment 97509
Woohoo! We have axles! The car is now drivable, or would be if we could get it out of the workshop. Need to move the D-Type and SSKs first. Next week...View attachment 97510
Nothing special done. The axles are pretty much in a straight line from transmission to hub. We will do a proper shakedown at the track next week and see if we encounter any problems.hi how do you phase out the u -joint drive shaft on the wheel side against the lobro joint on the gearbox? anything spécial?
Thanks Ian. Yes, it has had to be approved by the Limited Volume Vehicle Technical Association (LVVTA) who look at design, engineering and safety. They have given it their big tick so step one completed. It now has to be inspected by a certifier (who has been keeping an eye on the build over the past two years), then inspected by NZTA (government organisation) before it can be registered.That looks and sounds brilliant.
Do you now have to go through the equivalent of IVA inspection to get it plated for the roads?
Well deserved outcome, that is a awesome machine. The years you guys spend building these dream machines is a labor of love. Much respect for all you guys building. Congrats.Pretty much the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle added - fire extinguisher plumbed in with internal and external pulls (hope I never have to use it).
In its natural environment. At Teretonga Park race circuit for a testing session. A couple of electrical gremlins, one of which we sorted on site, the other will take a bit more sleuthing. Suspension and steering all performed well. It's goes like a cut cat. Pretty happy chappie.
This was the first day it was really in the public eye and I was quite taken aback by the amount of interest shown in it. Lots of people wanting to know about it and wanting to take pictures. Video below.
