Re: reconsider please

I could have saved an absolute fortune and would have been able to race in 2009 if there had been a 130mph club like Bonneville. As it is - it's now 2015 and still looks sketchy as to whether I will get my car done in time. :( The VW 36hp challenge in an SCTA recognised class that falls under the 13...

Re: '56 Oval

I'm in Mile End just outside the CBD It's going to retain all of it's patina although the body will be waxed to protect it. Apart from a few small bits of welding the shell is rust free and pretty straight, it was probably a good candidate for a concourse restoration before I got my hands on it, but...

Re: Forum Software update

OK the COLON has been evacuated :D

Fixed the language issues, there should be no more CAPITALISED text. If you find any please posts back here and I will try to fix it up.

If you can still see the word COLON it try refreshing your browser or clearing your browsers cache. :wink:

Re: Forum Software update

The COLON issue (and some other CAPITALIZED text) is due to some missing entries in your 'language/en/common.php' file, it is likely not up to date. You can try to re-upload it or add the missing entries manually... EG: add the following line to the file 'COLON' => ':', Note that the entries in the ...

Re: worth a look at

That thing is awesome, 28 litres in a four cylinder is almost unfathomable - thats like a big block in each cylinder!! I read an article on this a while back (which unfortunately I cannot seem to find any more). I recall that the driver said that it took all of his courage to drive it. http://spokem...

Re: Fire system nozzle positions

Glen, what was the official outcome for the fire system. I'm just about to look at the fire system for the oval.

Re: '56 Oval

With Christmas out of the way I managed to sneak out in the garage and spend a day finishing off the window surrounds and moon disk fitment. The initial fittings that I made up to fit the moon disks worked really well so I simply replicated them until I had enough for three fittings for each wheel w...

Re: Blower / supercharger restraint.

Done some further reading on this and there seems to be four different SFI specs that relate to supercharger restraint devices, these are basically split into fuel types: Supercharger Restraint Devices - SFI Spec 14.1 Methanol Fuel Supercharger Restraint Devices - SFI Spec 14.2 Screw-Type Supercharg...

Re: Blower / supercharger restraint.

Cheers Dave. Yes these are the ones I've seen but they are far too big for my little tiny charger which is less than half that size. I could probably cobble something together but whatever I do would not be SFI approved. However... Just re-reading rule 3.x and it actually states SFI TYPE blower rest...

Blower / supercharger restraint.

I note that rule 3.X states that SFI Style blower restraints shall be used on all vehicles using positive displacement blowers. Try as hard as I can I cannot find anything suitable that would fit my setup. Here's some pictures of the blower mocked up on an engine case. https://vdubber.com/images/ori...

Re: '56 Oval

Progress over the past week has been a little slower than I had hoped. I've still managed to get stuff done but work has been massively busy so by the time I get home I've not felt up to much. But whilst my actual progress might not have been as good as I would have liked the ordered parts have been...
