OK guys

now that i have got over my Lazy self & have regained my enthusiem in the car i thought it is worth a bit of an update to this thread

went to work this morning to try & get some work done while nobody was there

guess again:
Note to self,  do not leave car outside factory when working on race car as everybody knows what you are doing & you will spend all day opening the bloddy door to let friends in

thank good they make nice coffee

anyway after several interuptions i finally got a little work done

you can judge for yourself what got done

Really great work. I know what you mean about my laziness =; I feel the same way. When do you plan on racing it?

It's looking real "Fast" Rod \:D/  \:D/  \:D/  Nice job for sure!!!!


But There is one thing I don't like and that is where you put the trans cooler.
If you pick up one rock with that front tire and it gets thrown up into that cooler and pokes a hole in it your going for a wild ride into the other lane O:)  O:)  IMO........ :-#

thanks guys much appreciated

i palned on racing it a couple of weeks ago & knew that it wasnt going to happed & i think thats why i walked away from it

that & the fact that our Aussie dollar turned to crap & i had a lot of money out in parts that i bought in for other racers down here & didnt want to throw any more at it given the situation here

i was ready to purchase the last 3 items i need to complete the car being a set of Pro Jacks, Mark Williams Diff Centre & a Racepac Data Logger, at the time it would of cost around AU$13,800.00 landed here & now the dollar has turned to crap those same parts are closer to AU$20500.00

given that i had that money out layed in parts for other racers from down here i guess you can see why i walked away from it fo a couple of weeks

regards
rod

hi Barry
i know what you mean but i looked at several different options before i mounted it & decided on my original thought of were it is now

to mount it under the back ment that i had lines running all the way down to the car underneath, lines that could easly get damaged & not show up until it was to late

i even looked at putting it in front of the radiator but as i am a little tight on room there & didnt want to run the lines down the front of the chassis rail either

my only option was to mount it as pictures & as you can see i have left the core raw aluminum to shop up any signs of weeping so i can get it bofore something goes wrong

the core is mounted on double sided rubber insulators to keep it off the fire wall so air will run through it & i didnt want any chance of it cracking due to flex in the firewall

regards
rod

Rod,
Do you have anything to keep the engine from moving front to rear?
