closer towards the end of the build you'll have to raise it again xD cause of the weight of everything that will be in there. but it's smart to lower it while fitting the intercooler and all the tubing.

Hey Rob, Ive been thinking about your oil filter setup and I dont think its gonna be good enough hear me out. So im a liquid filter tech and ive never seen screens used in anything that anybody cares about. actual filters have so much engineering put into them to filter out any contaminates and putting that aside is just kinda stupid imo. if screens really did work well then people who actually know what theyre doing would use them more. look at huge generators that have to run for 1000s of hours at a time. they have 2, 3 or sometimes 4 filters set up to filter everything at a high rate through their gigantic filters, and honestly i think thats what you should do. I mean, do what you want. but i would suggest having canister filters set up for your oil filtration - or maybe even have the screen before the canister filters - but not just the screen alone.

Is this the worlds first 4 rotor not made by Mazda or a race team or is that Mazzei?

It’s always a good idea to grease every bolt that your gonna take out again. I’ve had broken bolts in my frame and it could’ve been avoided with just some simple grease (the frame was a lil rusty tho so)

Real question. It was at that shop that built the whole chassis. Why not have them do this while they had it? Change in plans?

Why are those wishbones so big and probably heavy? It seems like they can be twice as small and still handle the load.

Rob we know your transmission can take your mph way high on its own but what about getting it to the tires? Since your background depicts electrical and software with working on your car nechanical failures would be your downfall. Is the horsepower evenly distributed between all drive shafts or have you been able to test or see others use high hp axles and drivetrains similar to? I would just like to know how evenly hp is devided for maximum efficiency to be put to whatever road your on so maybe a feature like traction control can be added. Evenly distributed power means less the ecu has to work to correct these things

as far as the single shear question the other thing I've seen where that's not possible is a large washer under the head of the bolt, so if the spherical joint pops out, the bolt head can't go through it

You could adjust the lower control arm out further to give you more negative camber if it's still an issue, or for fine adjustment if the top has to be maxxed in

The upper rod end for the front control arm doesn't need to be in double shear (although it is safer). You can keep it in single shear and use a safety washer especially for the rod end. That will ensure that if the bearing of the rod end fails, it's captured. I would be more concerned with the rod end orientation. It's ALWAYS better to have a rod end oriented radially (on its side) than axially (on its back). Rod ends are fail tested/rated radially. When they are mounted axially, they lose about 90% of their strength/resistance to failure. On the upper control arm, you won't likely come across those forces but for lower control arms, mounting axially is something your should avoid.

And you want to put some space between the radiator and intercooler, why? So that you get some turbulence in the airflow, it escapes through the sides and you get less cooing from your coolant radiator? Got it.

"This will take of a 10th of a second on the 1/4mile." Surely this isn't just a 1/4mile dragcar? Not that it wouldn't absolutely own the 1/4mile, I can't help thinking that tricksuspension is more towards twisty stuff?
Gosh پیش سال
positive camber actually does have some usage. in drag racing, some positive camber is useful to cause the tread to evenly be on the floor with the soft damping. it causes less inner tire burns over the runs.

That is such a clean RX-7. It’s 1 of the nicest ones I’ve seen. It was tough seeing the front being cut off like that but hey if it’s going to send I’m sure you guys will have it mint again soon

The part about this car that I hate is you took a completely functional rx7 and have cut away just about everything that made it an rx7, so essentially you cut up an entire car for a roof skin and door shells. I just find that to be the biggest waste out there, why not get some car that was wrecked and never going to be fixed to build a tube chassis car instead of what used to be a super clean rx7
