    Had the very good fortune in 1971 to be pitside (working for our local TV station). (I should get to the attic and find those pics.) Saw Denny Hulme win the CAN_AM at Donnybrooke - opening year. Later caught Peter Reveson in the same type M-8 McLatren. Always liked the fences-to-wing...

    That "look" is really coming together. For "class" options/rules, could you get by with the mods to the rear deck by denpo. I've looked and came up empty - but here is on that could "disguise" anything that you do underneath: A solid windscreen - well placed louvers , that tilt/twist the flow...

    Long Overdue Progress! My Retro Airbag

    Whew - That sounded CLOSE! That's a reminder to me - one more time --- safety glasses around flying objects. Your story is more effective that "her" nagging. Rule Number One - Don't Die. Lifestyle and good genes have gotten me this far - now I just gotta' be more lucky than dumb! (Or, pay...

    Great Job! Consider getting some clear Bra (3M product). I used it in the nose of the "little racer" and it really saved the finish. I know - One more Thing." But will save some road rash. Cheers - Jim

    There was a Chaparral Body advertised on eBay - surprisingly cheap. It was a 2d - my favorite. {worthless side note: I watched both the 2D and 2E race at the Nurburgring in high school and that was the end of puberty! WHen I dig out the pics I'll post some I shot. } Meanwhile in the early...

    Cute, using Al Gore's "An Inconvient Truth" Unmentioned - the added infrastructure costs: 1. Crash barriers 2. High-rise parking garage structure 3. Bridges 4. Existing pot hole repairs not load bearing 5. Garage/servicing personnel 6. Disposal This scam puts the Obama Solyndra to shame...

    Long Overdue Progress! My Retro Airbag

    Sweet. DId they do the "slicing" (forgive if I choose wrong term) or did you? Extra charges for level of "precision"? I'll have to give them a look-see. The part looks just like your file. heers - Jim

    Off hand - what software did you use to do the 3d priniting of the duct for the air filter? And, did you use your own machine - of hire out? Recommendations, please. TIA - Cheers - Jim

    Project Elvira – Intro and Update

    I use Rhino - which has a Veteran's Discount - like 20 bucks or so. A lot of YouTube video tutorials. All I've posted are from Rhino. I also use SolidWorks - also has a Vets/Students Discount - also pretty cheap. And a bunch of Tuts on line. Rhino "seems easier," but maybe because I've spent...

    A lot of good stuff there. Interesting choice of therms too. "Splitter - Stuffer," "Shark Fin" vice "fence." A lot to unpack in that video, thanks for bringing it in! Cheers - Jim

    Don't know that one - but while looking at the GT-40 site well produced versions run from $120K-250/300K. EEE-Yow! The Factory Five "variants" can run up to about $150K, some incompletes less as low as well under $50K - no engine, etc. I'd love to, and kick myself for not jumping on the...

    Wilwood adapter

    I'll shout out to HP Academy. These Kiwis have a wealth of information on YT as well as their web site. They were running a 50% off special on some of their classes at Christmas - and I almost went for it. Quality was good - just figured I had too much time at the PC already - and not...

    Yeah. Made me have a think on it too. I ran the video at 50% speed, thinking the cornering looked a lot like drift cars. Could it be major oversteer and getting loose? Or was he inducing throttle oversteer on turn entry? I admit I ddn't listen to the audio - but that might be a tell. Then I...
