      Its basically clearance;
      Since I cut up the rad support that houses the front engine mount, I had to make a front steel sub-structure, independent of the rad support, in order to take the forces on the front engine mount; So I triagulated some steel bars, thus reducing front end clearance for the alternator...

      The weight saved on the alternator, is actually transmitted to the front rad support beefed up fabbed piece...
      Cheers!

      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.






    18. 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.
