      Blend paltes for the transition from splitter to fender flares finished.
      As for the ankle chopper, I already have some black vacuum hose, that I want to split open, and put as a molding to prevent injury

      Yeah that sounds prudent...I can imagine Fred going to check the oil and forgetting about the blade at the lower edge of his car...not a good shin picture

      A Friday night grooving my rain tires...
      Just a nice relax night, that I decided to take on a slow paced task...

      Got some R888 for the track car, for rain tires. As I could read they are not the best for the rain, but the compound is good. So decided to do them some groovin.

      First pic is the stock R88
      Second pic, every second groove does not reach outer edge of tire: Grooved to the edge.
      Third pic, all grooves do not go to center, so small grooves done past center line.
      Forth pic, comparison.






    13. 03-30-2012 10:46 PM #293
      That looks cool as long as the standing water is about 3mm or less. The tires are so wide you may float even with the cool groves. Let me know how it works.

      Naaaaaa BBS are way over rated. You can get some great wheels for 1/2 the price or less.

      My track work horse wheels are lighter and stronger than most BBS wheels and cost much less.

      My problem is the size & offset: I'm running 14X8 et8
      Choice is limited to steelies, Work Equip 03's, and BBS motorsport E76's... There's a set in Halifax N.S. for sale... Must re...sist...!!! 11.8 lbs...

      I want to try to stay away from spacers on the track car.

      14 X 8s with any offset you want for $407.91 - $443.38 each

      Took out the Rocco for a test & tune yesterday night:
      I need to make a better set for the breather, it spits out a liter of oil witihin 10 minutes
      You can see the oil still dripping on the garage floor...

      The engine pulls a bit stronger than last year, and the dog box is really nice!

      I know I am faster, as the wind actually ripped out the fron left fender in the straight...
      Vid: Sorry about the bad lighting, and for the pics, you can see, it got ripped out with the wind force...

      I got to 220km/h+ in 5th on the straight, according to the RPM, and the Quaife speed calculator.
      Never punched the 6th speed...
