Huge HUGE HUUUUUGE thank you to everyone watching out for me in the comments. I clearly don’t know everything. And I’m just trying to do anything in my power to make this thing stable in the time I’ve been given. Thank you for the guidance on quenching as well as any other safety issues. Even the conversations between everyone is well appreciated as I can see where I’m supposed to be focusing my effort.

This is one of the reasons I really like your channel Rob, you're always willing to admit when you've made a mistake/didn't know something. A lot of people could do to take a page from your book when it comes to learning things and being honest with yourself about your knowledge.

Love your build. I work for a company that does machining for the suspension of a certain military battle tank. You should use a helicoil type inserts in that aluminum right from the start if you are going to remove the bolts multiple times. It will protect the aluminum from cross threading or pull out. there are several styles on the market that I think would help.

Rob, the more I watch the more I like you. I'm a recent subscriber but I've known about you and your project for a while now. Your humble attitude, willingness to say "I don't know," and your obvious love of animals have won me over. Keep being you.

Just a thought having built quite a few cars..... once you install the uprights and get a little time on it to make sure its correct why not have complete 1 piece billet units made? No bolted on ears for the steering no annealed spots from the weld and quench etc... i understand doing whats necessary to meet a deadline but might not be a bad idea over the winter.

for the steering hyme joint bracket. box in the bracket if you can with out interfering with the hyme joint itself. the two pieces that you bolt through with the hyme joint should be connected so that you have a box frame m8.

Next time you need to weld thick aluminum like that, pre heat it a bit with a torch. It will help big time.

You should really really REALLY timesert all the threaded holes that see load in your billet suspension pieces. That's an old race car trick when you don't want to replace aluminum bits as often.

I love the music montages Rob - I know they're more laborious to edit (as I do it myself), but they're very peaceful, or exciting, or just satisfying, all depending on the time and tempo. It ads a good touch of production quality and makes your videos feel like a movie :) Consider doing it more often? It gets easier each time 👍Even just small ones are fun and entertaining for viewers

Rob you may like to have a read of this book, 'Engineer to Win, by Carroll Smith", (www.amazon.ca/Engineer-Win-Carroll-Smith/dp/0879381868 ) , his books enlightened me (and probably saved my ass) when I was messing around with oval track racing years back. It is a solid introduction to the metallurgy and engineering of race cars. (and why things fail!)

So, I have not taken the time to read through the posts, but the first thing that concerned me was the steering attach mount that you commented on. PLEASE, create some form of gusseting/bracing across the outboard side of both ‘legs’ of the bracket that reaches vertically up past the upper mounting bolt. I believe you’ll gain a lot of strength in both directions by doing so. You can afford the weight ‘penalty’.... I’m an old school Rotary guy from when I was in High School (1984), and my first car was a one owner, University Mazda (Seattle- first dealership in the states) purchased/serviced 73 RX2 2 door. Love your enthusiasm, and willingness to take chances, and share all this with us! Digging the shop cats, too. They are worth the investment, both rodent and enjoyment-wise.

buzzedo1 پیش ماه
Comments are handy, but can I suggest you get a good structural engineer from a race car team to come take a look and give you a list of what else can kill you? Hats off for sharing and having a crack, but if this thing ever gets near a race track or a fast corner I am seriously concerned for your safety. I am sure you could entice a quality engineer over for a good inspection. Thr guys here are right, get a hold of welding procedures for your various weld combos you are using. Brittle welds on suspension will kill you quick smart...but they look nice...your structural engineer won't spot it. Off its nuts car, love watching the adventure and love your can do anything approach, but want to keep seeing your smiling face, not hearing you've been wrapped around you mill or flung into the bushes or had your drive shaft turn you into Rob x2.

Those threaded tie rod ends at the end of the a-arm are not standard practice. The threads act as a stress concentration point, which can fail because they have a lot of torque at that point of the a-arm

Cooling your welds with water will make the metal hard and brittle. At least with steel. I welded a frame that was close to a rubber bushing so I used water to cool it. The weld cracked two seperate times. Third time I welded it I didn't cool it with water. The weld has held up for years.

should have full boxed the face/front of that double sheer heim bracket for the steering...... Because deflection up and down will fatigue it the way it is....

When you said " I introduced him in a video but I stuttered so much I scraped it" I felt that. I've been stuttering since I was in kindergarten and even though other people tell you it's okay, you still have those self conscious moments but bro you're a genius and doing great. Really good inspiration for the car community! 💯

When welding a large aluminum thing, heat it up with a torch. It will make welding easier. Also use the cleaning action or balance control to remove aluminum oxide as you're welding.

The hole on the top of your upright where the dbl sher goes @ 4:00 I'd drill and tap them out for helic coils. It be much stronger. And less chance of stripping . I have this done on my up rights for my Ariel Atom. The up rights are forged like yours.

Slim chance you're going to see this but I am a welder, and its really bad practice to quench a weld on anything especially something structural it will cause rapid cooling which can create hairline cracks in the weld and can lead to that part breaking off after vibration in the suspension.

How you have your steering attached with puny sheet metal bracket is sketchy as ****! Also the thin aluminum sheet squares are NOT ok, even if you do weld those on. You're talking about high speed high HP not a go-kart... Love you channel and your videos but I fear for your life. I'm an engineer not just dome troll trying to trash talk to make myself feel better. Stay safe man!

Loving the build Rob, one concern I have is the two boxes you welded to the top and bottom of the hubs to mount the wishbones; they don't look that strong! Would it not be possible with your nice new CNC machine to make some new hubs in one piece with rosejoint mounts designed directly into them?
