  1. Hi there, I would be happy to take them off your hands . I am in Pangborne so can pop over to collect at anytime. PM me and let me know when suits.
  2. Yeah the noise is a worry! The engine choice has helped a little as the RX8 engine (13b-msp) has side port exhausts which reduce the velocity and energy some what. Of course that energy has to go some place so the water and oil cooling requirments are worse (due to all the extra heat dissapation) which may also be a problem - time will tell! Few new bits up from the weekend - the car is finally out of my dinning room and in the garage again http://www.rivetracing.co.uk/2012/02/12/11th-february-2012-build-day-8-the-car-sits-on-its-own-wheels/
  3. Hello all, If anyone is interested I have set up a website for my build. The plan is to join the speed series at some point this year! Not sure if you guys have had a rotary engined car in the mix before? www.rivetracing.co.uk Let me know what you think, we are just a group of friends that decided to give it a go. I have no idea how it got so out of control that I'm manufacturing my own carbon fibre! Jon
  4. This is now sorted as above - great service. Thanks Jonathan
  5. Sierra Type - Bolt on drive shafts (I think these are wider in the centre of the upright). LHS needed but will take a pair if easier. One of mine has a large crack on the bearing mating surface
  6. You should select the adhesive based on the substrates you are bonding... Assuming the wings are GRP or Carbon: If you have powder coated brackets I would recomend a two part PU adhesive but lightly key the powder coat with 80 grit and clean both surfaces with isopropanol before bonding. This kind of stuff would do the trick - http://www.easycomposites.co.uk/products/structural-adhesives/20min-rigid-polyurethane-adhesive.aspx If the powder coat is chipping or non-existant then key back to bare metal and use an two part epoxy adhesive - again make sure the surfaces are keyed and clean as a whistle before bonding. A semi-flexible epoxy may give better results - http://www.easycomposites.co.uk/products/structural-adhesives/semi-flexible-15min-epoxy-adhesive.aspx. I would also seal after bonding to protect against water ingress to the join. Hope that helps
  7. Any condition considered (as long as it is still one piece rather that the two I currently have floating around my garage!) - Detachable or fixed arches considered although wider is better for me. All joking aside it is for the race car so does not need to be 'road going' quality. Thanks Jonathan
