18 updates 54 followers 42 mods2013-01-06 18:05:32Some small updates...
The engine and rear subframe structure are in..
The propshaft to the front is in;
The front diff rear mount is in;
Received some of the fibreglass / carbon bits;
Carbon front splitter;
managed to get ahold of some new calipers;
Im going to be putting the wilwoods on the rear and mounting a handbrake caliper separately..
I also re-designed the diff hydraulics. I didnt like the way i did it so ive managed to fit a Vauxhall corsa concentric slave cylinder on it and shim it to fit. This has the benefit of being a closer match with the skyline hydraulic unit specs
18 updates 54 followers 42 mods2012-11-21 08:04:32I have also been working with FIBERWORX UK on some interesting body mods.
They are providing;
Front intake ducts, to allow more effective use of my oil coolers. As such ive had to change the method i mounted the oil cooler.
Rear diffuser, the same as this but wider;
Front splitter blade. This will be modified siginifcantly as the blade will extend backwards all the way to the cabin / subframe. The active aero controller will drop the front of the blade by 1.5" closer to the road and this will make far greater use of its benefits.
And the best bit. I needed to add additional intakes for the turbo but didnt want to start cutting extra structure or roof out. So in an effort to reduce weight and hit two birds with one stone, FIBERWORX have taken on a custom job of installing 2 dual NACA intakes into the sunroof plug;
18 updates 54 followers 42 mods2012-11-21 07:59:50A few small updates since i was last on here.. Apologies for slacking with my updates.
I have now changed the design of the car from front engined, front biased AWD to mid engined, AWD rear biased.
18 updates 54 followers 42 mods2012-05-23 11:24:25Ive been a little slow with my updates recently, so here is my catching up lol.
I fitted the flared arches, i did this by adding a layer of fibreglass on some resin proof tape on top of the car skin, and adding a layer of fibreglass to the back of the arches. Then as the resin was starting to set, long enough not to drop off when inverted, i bolted the arches to the car, bonding the skins together. Then i removed the whole assembly from the car and smoothed it. This has given me stand alone arches, separate from the car. This will hopefully avoid the embarrasment of having the paint on the joint cracking.. I have also removed the original wheel arch from underneath and welded them all up so the new wheels can pass under..
I have also stolen the active aero actuator from a Mitsubishi 3000GT. This is now tied into my active aero computer and will serve to lower the whole front splitter / lip down towards the ground at high speed. This is suplimented by a secondary lip i made from fibreglass sitting behind the original one. This will prevent air passing under the bumper when the lip moves downward.
And for some reason the rear window shattered one morning;
At least it gave me room to weld up the radiator supports and additional boot supports for the rear wing..
I also decided to scrap my development of the throttle body. I have purchased the 76mm drive by wire model from the Audi RS4 V8. Ive modified the controller to run a H bridge module and the system will now run the Audi unit perfectly.. It should prove to be faster, more accurate and above all - safer...
18 updates 54 followers 42 mods2012-04-04 09:31:53Did some more work last night. Started stripping down the rear diff, in order to replace the hydraulics of the pump with inlet and outlets, to drive the piston directly.
Installed the rear right wheel arch extension. The left rear has been fibreglassed underneath, this will force it to hold the shape of the rear wing. When i remove it, i will add more to reenforce it and shape it with filler. The arches wont be smoothed into the car, they will look like bolt ons. This is simply because any chassis flex will crack the filler and look rubbish..
Garrett (my dog) helping
Also finished a product im starting to make, this allows the honda distributor to be replaced by the AEM EPM, and coil packs added to the bog standard Honda ECU with NO modification, here is some testing;
The RPM signal on a honda (for some reason) comes from the ignitor unit, and isnt actually matched with the ignition input frequency. I added emulation to the circuit to ensure that the rev counter will continue to function exactly the same.
18 updates 54 followers 42 mods2012-04-01 19:34:34A few updates. The cusco roll cage is in
The steering wheel controls are finished.
Modified the pedal box with the audi dbw pedal
There is a bit more work left to do on the dbw as the new servo was quick and accurate but didnt have enough torque, i was worried about the throttle sticking open. It wasnt worth the risk, i have a high torque one coming, but here is a video of the test
18 updates 54 followers 42 mods2012-02-04 14:45:25Sorry for the lack of updates- been rather busy doing electronics for people..
Firstly i managed to finish the lower dash panel (just the structure and lighting to do).
Also cut and fibreglassed in the NACA ducts for the rear radiator
18 updates 54 followers 42 mods2012-01-19 19:50:30The panel arrived tonight, so i took some time to assemble it.. The LEDs havnt come so i used some i had on the shelf, these are ultra high brightness non-diffused so you can see they are too focused on the rear of the panel. But it gives the idea..
Please forgive the finger prints and its obviously not fully fitted in the dash yet..
Also excuse the awful camera- it really doesnt handle dark very well
18 updates 54 followers 42 mods2012-01-17 23:46:36Look what I received tonight, this is a picture of the laser cut / engraved dash control panel fascia.
Hopefully ill have it on Thursday to assemble but needless to say im very happy with how it came out. Ill just need to send across the other 4 panels for work!!
18 updates 54 followers 42 mods2012-01-14 01:50:28I did a little bit of work tonight, made room for the new main control panel..
I should receive one of the control panels on Tue/Wed, fingers crossed it looks like the CAD image;
