Oops! A guy in Hotbricks put up for sale a Motorkhana special, complete with 8 3 piece wheels. before I knew it it was sitting in my driveway and the wheels were in pieces while I worked out what I could create. 2 by 13 x 10 and 2 by 13 x 12 Sweeet.
Only a single pair of slicks from all of them were worth keeping 230-550/13 so they will go on the 10s
Some say a race car should be designed from the wheels inward I know it certainly helps to know the wheel and tyre size before laying out anything else.
As in the past my customers are being very helpfull with contributions, one has donated a Subaru L wagon transaxle and another a Telstar TX5 complete with Mazda KL engine. I find that the uprights that I still have parts for, fit inside the wheels , so that is all good. There is a Magna in my paddock that donated it's rear calipers this morning and an Echo round behind the shed that is about to lose it's hubs and etc.
The recent storm in SA made an awfull mess of my work space so I spent this afternoon gutting it out and cleaning it up, I'll drop the build table tomorrow and start cutting steel....
