SBG-

I've been away a bit - so will back up to the new tank.

Looks like you have an opportunity to use the spare time at Thanksgiving to fab a nice diffuser to add to that space beneath the tank. Maybe an easy Remove & Replace style. Won't be full on race - but favorable with low- very low drag for the downforce it could provide. Something that has a slight roll to it and a few fins - you might consider the idea.

I am enroute to home and could share an idea or two. Let me know - you have my addy.

Seems the dimensions are pretty well know with your "blue tape tools!"

Cheers Jim

that tank was a 'simple' solution that simply doesn't work... it's not big enough...

but you bring up a question - is carbon fiber flammable?


One thing I don't like about my color combo of Dakota Digital dash is it's nearly impossible to read at speed... to time for a linear display with warning light


it's a good spot, no water gets there, it's in line of sight, and it's really easy to wire.

time to construct the cold air intake

things are so screwy, it's cheaper to use 304 4" stainless tube, mirror finish then it is to use aluminum

lay out

finished

and check for clearance
​​​​​​​
another issue - I need to seal the radiator to the core support... done


in other news, I fixed the e-brake and I correctly wired the speedo.edited Tomorrow (hopefully) I can go do a loop with it and my '40 to set the speedometer.... it's funny, it's the little things that are most useful...

I answered my own question... 400c = 752f.... it will oxidize but stop if the fuel source is removed.... I think I need to learn how to lay carbon fiber... a splitter, defuser, skirts....

it annoys me when I put the dash all back together then need to pull it apart again... the brown wire that needs to go to the blue wire is inside...edited
