Instead of counter sinking those holes with a drill, which leaves a tapered surface, it would be much better to use an actual end mill or countersink so you get a square bottom instead of an angled bottom. Bolts would actually sit completely on their entire shoulders, instead of simply contacting a very small area at the top of the drill angle. Just a suggestion from a long-term CNC programmer. Not trying to be douchy. Just know you're a perfectionist like myself 😁😁.

Get an End Mill Drill bit for those countersunk holes. Those Socket Cap Bolts have a Flat Bottom and need a Flat surface to mate with properly. Tapered holes are not acceptable with the torques you will need to maintain. Don't get cheap on us Rob.

Most people just powder coat their suspensions at sema, you actually built it better. One of a kind.

Go for carbon fiber wheels and carbon ceramic brake rotors to further reduce rotational mass and overall weight. Not gonna lie tho, suspension system looks very janky, especially the front end. Control arm hinges just look awful

countersinking aluminum for SHCS - make sure and retourque after some use, because the drill bit leaves a conical bottom, and the SHCS will pound that out. also try tapmagic for aluminum for drilling / tapping aluminum - notable cinnamon smell, best alu cutting lube i've ever found.

I never post comments on videos but, what this car stands for goes far beyond what I love about cars. Its the creativity and inspiration of builds like this that make me want to start another project. As many of us know there are failures that set us back in this hobby that make us want to throw up our hands and give up but, you my friend persevere and, it is truly awe inspiring!

I hate to be a little rain cloud but I was looking at your spindle and noticed that on your lower control arm you utilized one rod end mounted axially to connect it to the spindle @ the lower control arm. Why did you elect to do this? Rod ends are designed to be mounted radially and captured in double shear, especially if they are under bending forces. Mounting it axially reduces it's rated strength approximately 90%. So if you are using Aurora AM8 rod ends, instead of 19000+ lbs of static load capacity, you now have 1900 lbs. I know it might be a little late to make a change in the spindle design so at bear minimum, I RX the use rod end capture washers to prevent/minimize separation of the bearing from the rod in the event of failure. Still enjoying the work and the videos, keep them coming.

There is a special tool for counterboring for allen or torques head cap screws, it makes the bottom of the hole flap, for more consistent torque when you tighten them down.

Dude use a end mill for the counter sinking because the less material you take out of a structural piece while obtaining the same out come the better
Kirk Claybrook

8:36 shouldn't you use a bit that can flatten out the lip that the bolt heads sit on? The underside of the bolt head is flat so having it sit on a tapered surface might be very bad.

The amount of material removed also will massively weaken the hub should have had a shallower counter bore and moved to AN full shanked bolt. This is was we used to use on formula 3 hub bolts. More expensive but the quality pf bolt is so much higher and potentially lighter than cap head allen bolts

Dude if you don’t use a plug drill bit to drill them countersink holes on the upright the bolts will come loose all the time. As you have already drilled them now you will need to get some washers the same shape as the drill bit made to fit the hole now. For the drive shaft bolts i used to use schnor washers to stop them coming loose.

I'm not an import or rotary fan, but love the attention to detail and seeing the nuts and bolts of the project. My hobbies and work are very similar in that I do some fabrication and welding and also construction work and do a mix of building things from scratch and also repairing existing machines/structures. Like Rob, I learned to do much of the work on my own vehicles. With doing some changes on my sandrail frame and vw engine (cv joints on the rear IRS) I have had a small taste of what he is working on......his build is only 1,000 times more extreme and complicated, but I would feel right at home if I was helping him on that car.........and I live only 20 minutes from his shop as far as I can tell.

Look for a HEAVY DUTY FLEX 20 tig torch, if you are running much amperage. They will be rated higher for DC welding and lower for AC aluminum welding. I have one from Nutech sys (IIRC) and it is rated much higher than a standard 20 flex. I'm assuming that was a flex torch. The HD version has a larger rectangular neck, but it still flexes and has the small number 20 head to fit into tight places. I often times run at 200-250 amps and sometimes will push the torch to 300+ amps for short welds and heavier aluminum or steel. The torch never gets warm, but I also built my own cooler with a radiator. My tig machine will go up to 460 amps on DC, but the service to my garage is not heavy enough to max it out. The machine is an old sine wave transformer machine so there are no arc adjustments and it is left to the amount of heat used and user skill rather than being able to tweak the arc like on the new machines.

That is starting to come together to look absolutely gorgeous. As an RX-7 aficionado myself, I am full on jelly right now. But proud of what you're doing. This thing is going to be a beast. Am I wrong in thinking that you're going to get your rims hitting the upper (and maybe lower) A-arms at full lock? Could those use being trimmed down a bit to allow your tighter angles? I know you're not building it as a drift car, but it seems it could get a little more out of lock and still not hit those A-arms with a bit of a trim. Just curious. Great work so far, loving this build.
