Hi,

Here's a video to show you the atmosphere, and where we work.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=PPvrUXwuRy0

We worked on the Wet Oil Pans
We have expanded, so that the oil heats slower.

Great build, now put on two very thick coats at the same time to make like a fire suit and see how you fit. Keep up the great work and make sure you look me up at the salt.

Hey guys, if u can purchase Castrol B353 synthetic oil , it will sure help with heat problems , I used in race engines(wet and dry sump) with excellent results, these engines were run in 200-300 lap races, unforntunatly we can not purchase it here in Canada anymore.

Hey I wish I had seen this post a couple of weeks ago when I was in Belgium I would have loved to have made a visit. I should be building the body and painting the"City of Burbank" for the owner and to make it to the salt this year. (http://www.bonneville2012.com/). If you are near Hasselt in the next couple months check out the exhibition I am in at Z33 http://www.z33.be/en/projects/space-odyssey-20. Good luck with the project - very nice work

-lastly, keep your welding gaps in mind- especially with the fish mouths on the cage. you want them almost water-tight with a small bevel before you weld. if you're having to fill a gap, it's probably worth redoing.

i don't mean to be a prick and i hope that helps! safety first!!!

Yes, we checked and followed the rules of the Rules Book. We have oversized the distances to be on. and we have checked through this mock-up.

No, this is the Mock-up, it is not yet sealed.
We received the roll cage tubes to the next weekend.

Yes you are right, but the roll cage on the photo is not finished
There will be a tube between the middle horizontal tube and the horizontal tube which is installed the roll cage driver. Because in case of pressure, the horizontal tube where the roll cage driver, he would not survive.

Yes, absolutely, there is actually very rough, we use the program "tubemitter" to have perfect fish mouth ( in french "Gueule de loup" "wolf mouth"). we avoid having large separation between of each item, for to have a maximum absorption of the metal.

Absolutely not, on the contrary, I appreciate that kind of comment, at least we can perceive that something is a wrong build. Our goal is to run at Bonneville, then all advice is welcome.

Thanks Rob.
