I know they took way too long Marty but for all the parts we've had custom built these are by far the best fitting least problematic parts yet!
Seems they use 930 Porsche CVs and shafts with custom made flanges...nice!

What car did the rear suspension parts come from? (wishbones, uprights, etc)

Thanks!

Funny thing is, it kinda looks like the rears on this car might have been the fronts on the donor.
Should make toe-in easy to adjust.

MatrixPook,

are you using the sky/solstice front knuckles in the rear with the rear sky/solstice wheel bearings? I am curious if they are interchangeable.

Also, did you just have the subaru splines for the tranny and the bearing splines for the pontiac flanged so that you could bolt an axle bar in between?

thanks, looks good.

Ben

I did a little searching and it looks like the rear knuckles also have that "steering knuckle" for a tie rod attachment, so I'm assuming you just used the rear knuckles and rear hubs correct?

Is the upright aluminum or steel?

thanks!

Yes, The uprights and hubs are just as they would sit on the Solstice/Sky.
They are aluminum.

Great thanks for info! Can you comment on the interchangeability of the hubs themselves and the geometry of the uprights.

Basically, I'm wondering if either the geometry of the front and rear are the same minus the brake mounting, or if the front upright will allow the rear hub to bolt into it. I am wondering the best way to design an awd setup around this suspension. I'm not looking to compete with your cars in anyway just FYI, just want to build my own car in the future and you know this information first-hand so I want to ask the source.

thanks!

Default Headlight update

I stopped in and met w/Danny today. After consideration of the Hella projector lights I'd previously bought



we decided that building a custom fiberglass housing for these units (3.25" lense) would end up leaving us with a HUGE piece that was too big for the small frontal area of the car.

So, I ordered a pair of these which are about 4" wide. The housing is metal so that'll be stripped down and powder coated black.










Then Danny will fabricate a mount and install the head lights and move to the back of the car with the installation of the tail lights.

Tomorrow I'll go meet with the guys at TIC to discuss moving the car to them to finish up the wiring and mechanicals. The hopes are that our painter can have the body panels and scoop painted by the time that the car returns from TIC so that it can be completed no later than January 2013.



Hopefully this means that the car build is finally going to progress so my MEH begins to fade away.

are those dot approved ? where did you find them? they are a variation of the units used on the razor.

Doubt they are DOT stamped - I'm just going to roll the dice at this point.

Got them here -
http://www.ebay.com/itm/200822602950...84.m1439.l2649

Don't think they are related to the razor units other that they are also a side by side design.

Not my first choice. I also thought about E.T. and Johnny 5 but I knew I didn't want 5" round frog eye lights or paying $$$ to have someone design me some one-off HID units that would take 6 months (or longer with my luck).

Nice headlamps! I will be going that route as well once the vehicle is registered.

Pook - Did you have any difficulty putting on the Solstice axle spindle nut after installing the drive shaft shop axles?

No, The splines are tight!! Semi press fit same as the Solstice.
You have to put some anti seize on them then use the nut to pull the shaft into the hub.
Air tools or a big breaker bar.

Yes. I did have some difficulty pulling the splined ends through the hub, as well. The splines were definitely tight. But after a little blood, sweat, and a little muscle I got them though and they mated well. My issue is the thread on the axle & its interaction with the nut. They don't seem to want to play nice.

Sorry to hijack the thread.

Oh, Very sorry.
The nuts they sent with the axles threaded right on. maybe a bur on the threads of the flange shaft?
If thats the case they sell a thread file, you pick the pitch and file out the bur (may have to call Drive shaft shop unless you have a pitch gage out of a tap and die set.

No problem, The geometry between the front and rear uprights is exact, The ONLY difference is the lugs to mount the calipers.
The neat part is the hubs have only one part number for the whole car. there is no difference between front/rear/right/left. They are pre-loaded so no need for a stub shaft to hold the bearings together on the fronts but are splined and just waiting for a 4wd setup IMHO!
