Designing Sports Car in Inventor 11
Another movie of the car that I designed and built a few years ago. Virtual car still isn't finished. I will be very busy in the next few weeks so probably I won't find time in June. But I'll be back in July or Sep. Enjoy
BTW There are 402 parts already without bolts washers and nuts.
Welding Race Cars.mp4
This video presents information about welding race cars that summarizes an article published in the American Welding Societies Journal. It outlines additional information presented on our www.NetWelding.com web site. It includes a few video clips of Richard Petty discussing the importance of quality welds in making a safe race car.
It has suggestions and potential problems when welding 4130 Chrome-Moly used by drag racers as well as the mild steel used in NASCAR chassis. You can see the 1st page of information on welding race cars at: www.NetWelding.com/Welding_Race_Cars.htm
How to build a Westfield Sports Car
Shows the construction of my Westfield Sport 2000 module build (lotus 7 inspired) sportscar. The engine is a ford duratec 2.0l with a Weber Alpha throttle body injection (204hp), with lightened flywheel, sports clutch plate (hydrolic), connected to an MT75 - 5 speed quick shift gearbox. This is connected to a 3.92 LSD Ford 7" differential. Suspension is fully independent and fully adjustable with a wide track front arrangement and front and rear anti roll systems fitted. Brakes are AP racing 4 pot (ventilated discs) at the front and VW golf mk4 solid discs at the rear, operated by an AP Racing master cylinder.
Build a Locost 7: Step 1 - Fabricate the Frame
Building a Locost 7 frame, at 240x speed acceleration. This is the start of my build and represents roughly 50 hours of work between 4/21 and 4/28/2007 to construct the basic frame. Run at roughly 1000x fast forward, it will only take you seven minutes.
My entire build log, with lots of specs, pictures, and info is at http://LocostUSA.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2741 .
