Gray then blue! Anti-lag approved? Wow. That's ridiculous. This is sick.

It really looks like you know what you're doing, however, if you're going with a hybrid engine have you considered getting the combustion chamber CNC'd? EQTuning does it and it really looks like it helps (versus using a thicker headgasket for compression ratio).

Thanks I'll look into it.

I'm not sure I'd go so far as to say I fully know what I'm doing. This build is a massive undertaking requiring the knowledge and research of dozens of individuals. There haven't been many decisions I have made yet that haven't been filtered through others who are more knowledgeable or specialized. I know a little about a lot but it really pays to have the friendship and support of people who know a lot about a lot.

I have a little something planned as thanks.. but I'm not going to reveal that until it's on the road.

I should add. Anti-lag is not necessarily a sure-thing. However now I have the option of running it and not just mangling VF39s

Anyway, definitely going to be following
looks so good! Keep up the awesome work!

Oh I think the grey or blue livery looks best!

Well the trip to New York went well. The primary goal was to get the car tailor made for my dimensions and driving position. This is a step that some skip but putting the extra effort into tailoring the car exactly for me should provide an even better result.

So basically the two big items on the list were to finish the seat mounts for the driver seat and figure out a steering wheel mounting solution. Both were accomplished and the end result is fantastic.

There are far too many pics so here is a link to the picasa album so you can view them yourself.

Here are some highlights:

Yar? We even cut out the stock seat mounts to get it lower and more stable. It's lower than you'd think. Keep in mind the 'nakedness' of the car. With the dash and windshield border and hood I'll actually be pretty close to being unable to see the front of the car. The codriver seat will be pretty much on the floor too. Both Andrew and I pretty much agree we dare not take the seat any lower.

Awesome build Dave. I just cut up my nicely flocked dash to fit around my cage, boy was that saddening. But boy oh boy will all this work be worth it once we're smashing through R4's over crests. To bad I'm likely never to race this thing on the east coast...

Im sure it was tough cutting into that dash! haha. Kinda makes me glad mine is going to be built around the cage rather than the other way round...

Pedals now in.





Things are getting closer to being done at Havspeed. The official still-to-do list before it comes back to PA is

- Finish last of seam welding
- Fabricate/Install thicker steel rocker panels
- Install holes for pin-stand
- Fabricate mount for hydraulic e-brake
- Mount hydraulic e-brake
- Weld mounting points for underbody protection.
- Weld/install Howe 1.5:1 steering quickener.
- Powdercoat the whole inside

Well the cage is officially done. Gussets are in and everything looks great. Now to finish the rest of that do-do list.

So it looks like we're going with 20 gauge steel rocker panels. The company that Andrew knows if fabbing them up right now. They shold be ready inside a few days and then those go on.

I'll be talking to the e-brake manufacturer to get that shipped off to the car and then it'll be time to get that installed. Here's a preview of that



Thinking of changing the handle. Still haven't decided how I want it yet. The mount itself will be slightly rotated and mounted high so it's more of a natural feel to pull and I can return to the wheel quickly. When used in conjunction with the dual master cylinders the tilton's provide me it should provide a very nice braking setup.

I've always wondered how the holes in the side skirts were put there and how the car got jacked up and put on the stands?

How did you you build the rotisserie?

When did the 6spd go in (spotted the selector)?

Cheers
Darryl

Generally I think most people use a plasma cutter for the holes. As for the jacking method, you lift it up from the front and rear of the car. Here's a good example


As for the rotisserie... I'm not actually sure. That's all Andrew's side of things. I'll have to ask him. I know he built at least one of his rotisseries but I'm not sure if that's the one.

Also the picture with the 6-speed and the dashboard is not mine. That's another member that was just sharing his build on here. Mine is still without transmission.
