Youtube, please. Feel free to make it all kinds of ugly--all I'd really like to be able to see is whether there's any flex in the tie rod. If it bows under compressive load, that's a great reason to upgrade to the BMR tie rods. There might also be a side-to-side motion due to the rubber bushings in the tie rod, but that's going to be difficult to detect. Even a small deflection can throw your camber angle off quite a bit, giving you uncontrolled launches or unpredictable cornering.I am trying to edit in a little brightness right now cuz there isn't enough light really. You want this thing uploaded to YouTube or emailed?
I really appreciate the help. If it turns out that there's a lot of play in those tie rods, I'll put together a group buy on the BMR parts or bug Killernoodle again about making them.Yea sorry fuzzy... Its just hard to get light up there... I thought we could see it better with the angle I had but I guess not. I'll try again tomorrow on the way to work. I have a little led flashlight in the garage I'll duct tape up there. We shall see what's up then
Adjustability is key. The BMR CTS-V set is a PITA to adjust. Look at some of their better parts for inspiration. Like this, but with ball joint ends:Just a heads up, im about to make a set for my car and If they turn out good I could make a few more. It looks like theres only 150$ish in parts to make them
Hydroplane?they would be super easy to make. as long as you used a reverse thread rod end on one side you u can back off both jam nuts and twist the bar to adjust. im pretty sure thats how the bmr ones are made.
i plan on making mine out of some cromalloy i have laying around form our hydroplane
Very cool ! I go to the races all the time in Detroit and San Diego and have met Scott a few times all the way back from when he was driving Mr. Pringle!Yeah I work on the GP-55 crew. She make about 1800hp on alcohol and 17 psi. I can make a thread about the boat if you guys want more info
