According to Ceika, they say 20". I think HRE might be able to squeeze 19" on those but i will need to talk with them on that. Honestly i thibk it will depend on wheel barrel size and the face design.Does this require 18" and larger wheels?
It's so damn gorgeous. Haha!
Reminds me of the front brakes on an Audi E-Tron.
Calipers are enormous.
Who knows, those things are engineered right! It is like every iteration (regardless if Chevy or Caddy and their V series) they just continue making the cars faster, brake short distance and not gain to much weight. It is crazy. I wonder if that is a race car feature on those single bolt axle based rims and I wonder if it can be added to rims after the fact or while manufacturing.Haha. Now that is cool!
Enhancing the tire bead adhesion.
Just shows how far we are to pushing vehicle limits these days.
Figgie will you be able to run down a ZL1 1LE?
"Danger to manifold!"Rednox, or looks like rice rice baby project needs more then 330 ish posts!!!. The living legend Figgy! Man your a wealth of info!! Good to see your in the mk3's still.
Probably has a red engine in the plans, motec dash and computer, some crazy aircraft wiring and fittings. Along with loads of exhaust back pressure . Probably blow the welds clear off on the intake, hahahaha.
Not sanding it down, yet.The sleeve in the ear should move - strong, but move.
Can be filed with a sander.
Well it is this, i can tell you that it is hard enough that it did not bend when i put the full weight of the car on it.is that , like that little bushing thing in the alternator mount? or is that lip machined into the spindle? almost looks like a little bushing you can smack out the way with a brass punch...
Unless the company (regardless of brand) really messes up the valving, it should be pretty good. I do know that these "type 1" are 12 way adjustable but they are not independent adjustability for rebound and dampening like ohlins, Penske, QA1 etc.Interested to see your opinion of the Ceika Coilovers, I have not heard any reports from anyone with them yet.
I am holding off on that as Ceika is sending me new lower bushing to test fit.Hell of a brake package!!
I agree those sleeves for the shock bolts should slide in/out to take up any slack, and are probably just rusted in place.
Give them a good wack axially with a hammer and they should move
Yes. Honestly it is hard to argue against numbers which i provided. It reminds me of when i used to work at Best Buy doing quality assurance/development for their in-house products. I had to come back with hard data to get the developers to adjust the issue (ie i am getting a 25 ms lag on "bael" game controlle input vs when using model y, i get less than .82ms lag input).That's pretty cool how fast they got back to you with the correct part. I'll definitely look at their systems when it comes to upgrading my car.
This one is incomplete...Parts like that will definitely come down to profit/cost. Can you sell it and make it worth your time? That said, I'd be interested in a part like this, for the right price.
Can you add a bulkhead mounted connector too to power the pumps? Like this maybe? https://www.efihardware.com/products/3240/6-pin-eletrical-bulkhead-weld-on-kit
What size are those threads? It looks pretty close to thread in an oring boss fitting.
On a 3d printing related note, have you seen Colorfabb PA CF filament? You might be able to print functional prototypes with it.
Well 0 when i posted lol. we are getting into the negatives nightly. Yeah, i am not that hardcore to be working outside.The MKIII crowd in general does not have the funds to get stuff like figgie is making.
There are always a few exceptions, but usually stuff is just cobbled together.
Always has been that way.
At the most I bet he would sell 5 initially.
Then maybe 2-3 a year after that, maybe.
@figgie 0 F eh?
It's been -10 F here, with the wind chill something like -30 probably.
I know it's super cold here when the moisture at the corner of my windows inside freezes solid.
Windows are only a few years old too, so they are not junk.
Fun times in the north.
I still tear my diffs down outside in these temps, in a non heated garage.
Fingers start loosing feeling after awhile.
