Here we go Jamie.
These are around £200 a go from E-May, good ol Chinese product and Steve tells me that forums say, anything more than thin alloy will need some lumps of iron welding across the two flat bars to strengthen the thing up.

I bet Clive would be like a kid in a sweet shop if he went to New York with all those yellow taxis

We went there a couple of years ago and was disappointed to find that all the yellow taxis were all modern stuff :(

If I remember, I will take a picture of said  tool when I'm over at the workshop tomorrow afternoon.

Looks good Clive,

Nice NACA ducts, they hand formed or you got a tool?

Traced a Naca Duct and Steve shaped it out with a swageing wheel

Good day yesterday progress wise, Exhaust system is completed, rear suspension trays and brake ducts repaired, new style undertray, which hopefully will help down force  is fitted   and we got a long  into the splitter being completed.

Looking under the car you can see the exhaust is tucked right up under the car which will not only stop the damn thing scrapping the track but will hopefully help air flow as well by making the underside "flatter".

Worked out what we are doing for cannards this time ( the car will look quite different at the front)

Steve is going to carry on with the car tomorrow so the nose assembly should be in colour later this week.

Season gone quiet,

You're not missing events due to "injuries" Clive?

As you will see on the next post, still reassembling the car plus some mods.

Next race "should" have been a different series at Brands, so if all goes OK with the mapping, I will be out next at Mallory Sept 28th and  then Donnington October 30th.  I will have a look and see if there is any thing else I can slot into but most series don't like me because I'm rotary !

Good to see more  Rotus action  :great:

Just an observation as im no aero expert, but with the flat floor you have built, I think for stability you will  a rear diffuser.

Also don't  cover your gear box an diff from air flow as I know somebody who did this with his FD and had sensors fitted and found he was frying both units.

Hope this helps.
