and runs, too- bonus!

The not-a-flywheel is awesome- it revs up like a race car now!

And idles at 1400 just fine.

Makes me think a knife-edged and lightened crank might be fun, next.

Not this year!

...looks like a lot of FUNN

but the down side to the feather-weight flywheel

is if your ever in slippy conditions - you have very

poor control over the car,

and your starts are like a 2-stroke race bike - high,

slippy rpms to get going. Hell on clutch components.

Well done Toby. I like the flares. I hope to get out there with you later this year. G

Picture with wheels and tire as soon as it is on the ground- please! Awesome.

Is that a bolt in cage?

It was an Autopower bolt- in, but it's been added to and welded in.

Not my idea- I bought the car that way before I

knew better... and it's grandfathered into SCCA and Conference,

so the only motivation to change it is my bacon...

More pics tonight- I'll be aligning it today if the tires hold air.

Gordon- see you in Seattle?

The box itself is great- ratios are good, shifts

fine, and that rally clutch is also fine- thanks

for the recommendation.

It looks like either the output shaft is bent

or the rear bearing's shot- or chowing the

rear housing apart. The driveshaft is flopping around

like a live fish on the output flange.

I have parts to fix it,

but that damned entry fee HURTS!

I'm hiding under a rock for a few days...
