Making moves in May.

May was a strong month for the build. I got a lot finished on the car so I'm going to hop around on the projects that I finished. The rear of the car, from a mechanical aspect, is pretty much there and buttoned up. I installed my LSD 240SX differential. Check out that extended cover... Continue Reading →

Shift’n gears!

I got a killer deal on a T56 transmission (99-02 Camaro) a couple years back. She was sitting in the back of a car shop covered in old parts. "I think she was recently rebuilt" was uttered, but for the $300 price tag I was willing to take the chance. I think the ol' timer... Continue Reading →

Let me be your wing man. Part 4.

Well guys, we're getting pretty close to wrapping up this project. In part 3, I finished the carbon fiber wing element. The next step is to mount it to the car. I'm basing the mounting off the below rendering of the car. I want it level with the roof line. This will keep the wing... Continue Reading →

Not... Continue Reading →

Let me be your wing man. Part 2.

In part 1 of "Let me be your wing man.", I went over the the foam construction, end plate mounts, and mounting plates. The next step is the carbon fiber process. I highly recommend doing this entire process with a test piece of your foam core. You won't need mounts and end plate mounts for... Continue Reading →

Chill out with CSF.

If I don't keep to my monthly "to do" lists, I would be all over the place with projects. I wanted to focus on the radiator, oil cooler, and core support in March. First on the list was to mount my CSF R1 Competition Radiator. If you follow time attack racing or road racing, you... Continue Reading →

Let me be your wing man. Part 1.

I've been debating building my own carbon fiber wing for a while now. I guess it boils down to that I'm not an aerospace engineer and it's a little intimidating. I've voiced that thought to several friends and I get a look back like "are your crazy". It's then followed up with "You can build... Continue Reading →
