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
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.
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:

DirtyImpreza.com - Project Rally RS Episode 3 - Rollcage
In this episode of the DirtyImpreza.com Project Rally RS (PRRS) build we
cover the events from much of 2008. The 2001 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS was
stripped down, seam welded, caged, painted, and re-assembled with a donor
motor and transmission from another 2001 2.5RS.
The roll cage was constructed by Jackson Rally and is Rally America and
NASA compliant (built to FIA Article 253 specs). It has been overbuilt in
some areas for extra safety and rigidity. The shell has been seam welded
around the struts, transmission tunnel, cabin floor, and wheel wells. The
roof skin was replaced with a JDM roof to completely delete the USDM
Its been a long year, but finally we have a running rally car! There are
still numerous smaller projects that need to be tackled before this car is
stage rally ready, but some of the biggest milestones have already been
reached. Thanks goes out to Kyle at Jackson Rally for his amazing
fabrication work, Scott at California Auto Collision for painting the
inside of the car, and the dedicated DirtyImpreza.com members who
tirelessly helped to get this car where it is today.
Note: For those of you who may have been following the build this episode
might be a bit confusing, and you may ask Where did this other RS come
from? Basically, the original 2.5RS was scrapped because it had extensive
rust, and a severely damaged frame (which was revealed during its initial
tear down). The decision was made to buy another identical 2001 2.5RS with
a blown motor but no frame damage or rust, and transplant the vitals from
the other car into this one.
