Trailing arms ss1turbo

I would imagine it would be easier to make one fully tubular with the exception of the hub mount obviously :lol: Yeah, it has been done, walkers sabre racer had arms made up of various small diameter tubes and had a few driveshaft failures, probably down to flexing. The loads are sizable so needs t...

Trailing arms ss1turbo

Trailing arms can be any design, box section, tublar or fancy folded doesn't matter. So long as the mounts, hub plate and damper mounts are in the right place the rest is immaterial.

G130 YCF my first sprint car

But as you say, some extra margin is insurance a...

Charlie Whiting

Charlie and Herbie Blasch both worked for Bernie when he owned Brabham (remember those 1500hp Parmalat sponsored BMW Turbos 8) 8) ), typical Bernie style he looked after his men and took them to run the F1 rights hed just bought.

What's the servo off or shared with?

I'm sure I should know this, but I don't :oops: I'm looking to ditch the servo and fit a bias box. If I can work out the bolt pattern for the servo and if it's shared with something the likes of Comp Brake and OBP already make then I won't have to bodge summat :lol: This sort of thing https://goo.gl...

I'm with Corky in that you need sufficient time and precautions to get your ar5e out, cars can be replaced :D
