If you are interested here is a picture of the water system.

Pipes are increased to 28mm (1.125") this is due to pumping the radiator to front of car. pipes are almost 2.5 meters long

Front diffuser. My first go a resin infusion. This was a heap of fun and heaps easier than vac bagging wet layup.

Electric blanket is to help with the cure, just pealed away to show the carbon.

Very rigid and quite light

Continuing to play with Carbon. These are the full length ground effect tuneels (aero as outlaw in F1 in the early 80's) These weigh 8lbs complete each side

Thanks Guys.

Yeah has been alot of fun and especially considering I sit in an office all day running code. Its refreshing for the brain to hide in garage

Cookie the carbon was pretty simple really. I have a table that we made long enough and then I have some stiff plastic on  top (to seal the table surface) The tunnels are simply eps foam wrapped in packing tape then that's taped to the table and vacuum bagged over.

Hope that's what you wanted to know

Haven't updated much recently.

Been doing little things recently. Have just watercut and made a new debris catcher which sandwiches between case and sump. Works on dry sump system. Mate wants one for his racecar now.

Made on Aircraft alloy, stainless filter and alloy grade solid rivets.

Also here a picture of the modified Nismo torsen diff whoch is used for the chain drive

Progress been slow recently with making wings and a few other carbon parts. I did mount this nice little quaife diff last week. diff is great as keeps axles a similiar length even though drive of the hayabusa engine is offset.-

Nice progress  :tu:

Would it be perhaps better to use a steel sprocket and not aluminum ?
Just a thought because your car is much heavier than a bike  .....

yeah the sprockets are alloy. They are the same as used on the radical race cars. I'm using these so that between me and a friend we can share spares.

We probably do a total of 800-1000km in a season and we change the sprocket at most tracks. I plan to use 2 or 3 different front ones instead of changing the rear.

thanks for the feedback always great to hear what people think

Ahh, I understand !

If you perhaps want to change, those are nice and solid sprockets:

Been frustrating recently as the finish is now visable but it takes so long.

Am current up to my ears in wiring but had a break from it over the weekend and fitted the aero.

They turned out quite big so hope they do there job.

getting into the last few big bits before we give it a start. Test external oil system on my poor little drill. Over 70psi on spinup. Happy with that.

Exhaust all made
70% of way through the wiring but hopefully will have it finished this weekend
Fuel pumps all fitted. They are a tight fit but got it in there

Thanks.

Wiring taking longer than thought but must say not enjoying that bit so am procrastinating a bit.

I think the motovation will get back up when its makes noice for the first time.

Engine finally all plumbed. Oiling system tested. Full of water and a base map now in the ECU.

Also picture of the new office including the carbon dash. You can see the steering wheel includes a AIM dash built in

Things have been a bit slow but have started the new year remotivated it hit the track. Starting to mount the body and panels. Also car sitting on its wheels on new wheels. Have ditched the old school polished 3 piece wheels for Indycar race wheels. I think the car looks meaner now

Looking good Chris. Nothing like waiting until the middle of summer to get back to work on it :-)
