Yeah didn’t like the long chassis, wanted it shorter, any part of that frame was way passed being saved, the amount of rust in it.those leafy chassis are longer you can cut the bit off the back and weld it on to the coily chassis if you want a large tray. Gains about 400mm
Thanks for the tip👍 Will try get the clearance, Not chasing the 200kw just want it somewhat reliable around 250hp, also getting rid of the aircon, will give a heap more room for a bigger air box, never used it anyway rather the windows down ha, will turn the air con pump into endless air, pump tyres up a bit quicker.Just a tiny bit of advice for your air box from experience. Most of the air through a pod is pretty much right at the pod entrance. If you can for spool accelerations it is a huge advantage to have 30mm clearance all around the pod in the pod entrance area. You are doing a new design and have the skills and you are templating your product in cardboard so you can play around a bit to get a good 30mm at the entrance and if possible if you are seeking that 200rwkw point you will need an ideal 100mmish clearance from the snorkel entry to the end of the element. you can bend the pod around further to achieve a better result.
By no means am i suggesting what you have wont work better than the pov air box you have already but if you are seeking something closer to the ideal for a pod and spool acceleration, that 30mm clearance is important. Its not about total flow for a street rig its about the ability of the pod to be less resistant in the spool criteria, pods in a box need all the help they can get compared to a half decent panel box concept when it is about spool resistance which is drivability and fun early power/torque. .
I haven’t sorted the sub tank yet, have the wagon sub tank when I bought the new chassis could bolt straight in, will eventually fab up some brackets to use the bigger Ute oneAwsome build mate.
Did you manage to fit the sub tank from the leaf chassis onto the coil chassis?
I found the rear mount is different.
Thanks, engine is getting the machine work done at Currie brothers in Taree, I’m going to be building it myself,Wow awesome work and nice write up, you went to town on it and I'm still on page two, where the motor is getting sorted. How did you bond the alloy floor to the steel, glue and rivets ?
