    Too much Carbon Fibre...

    Just seen this and whilst I love the Carbon Fibre body and weight saving, the inside is a bit much??? https://newatlas.com/koenigsegg-bare-naked-carbon-knc-regera/57584/ CeeBee

    Carbon Fibre Tub / Chassis

    Hi everyone, I'm a university student, currently working on a project with regards to the use of carbon fibre in kit cars such as the Westfields. Essentially, we are working with Axon Automotive on a passenger tub, where the passenger and the driver are seated, made entirely of carbon fibre (including the beams, the flooring and the side panels); whereas, the front and back of the chassis remain with the original steel frame chassis. So the method used to join the steel frame to the carbon fibre tub is through nuts and bolts. I'm currently conducting a survey just to determine your perception on the use of carbon fibre in kit cars, especially for the tub. More information about the product itself is available in the survey link below and I'd really appreciate if you could take a couple of minutes to answer the survey. All responses will be stored anonymously and I really hope that I can get a great number of responses from you all. Click here for the Survey. Cheers, Will
  3. Hey guys, was wondering if anyone happened to know a bit more about (I think) Axon Automotive and Westfield's prototype on replacing the standard passenger tub (originally made using steel or aluminum bars) to carbon fibre. I tried to look through their website, I thought the kit car was supposed to be in production by the end of last year but I don't see much information about it. On the other hand, I did manage to find a picture, below, of (what I think is) the prototype. Any thoughts on the use of carbon fibre for the tub? I assume it will provide substantial weight saving, and possibly extra stiffness on the tub but I'm not sure about the connections between the front and rear steel frames with the tub. What do you think?

    Time to treat myself!

    Ahoy all! For those that have seen a few of my posts, i've had a bit of a trial by fire during my first few Westfield months. Within week 2, the alternator failed; or atleast thats what I thought. After buying, attempting fitting, trimming, refitting and finding out it was actually just a broken mount I had another issue... The oil filter was pierced by the newly trimmed alternator. So I removed it, removed the oil filter, changed the oil, refitted a new oil filter, retrimmed the alternator, refitted. Then the radiator played silly b*******s. Then the headlights. Then the dipstick. Then forgetting to put the oil cap back on, and having a blat end very promptly from the smell of what I can only describe as an old locomotion tailgating me Then some lass decided to use me as a reversing sensor. Sadly the noise didnt stop her from continuing. So after having to fork it out myself (as she's decided to go all silent on my claim request (outside of insurance...grrr)) I now have 4 new tyres, 2 new top ball mounts at the front...took it for a spin and bang. Exhaust fell off. FML... So on Friday I have a chappy at my friendly MOT station to weld the mount back to the exhaust! So given all that, this week i've decided its TLC time. Enough of the crap. Enough of the 'oh this is starting to hurt the wallet'. I've now thought 'Sod you wallet, time for you to lose some weight'. Cue the brand new 270mm Momo steering wheel, exhaust wrap that was starting to look tired(especially after the spillage!), Julian's custom carbon dash with red trim, and a bit of a wax treatment in store. The questions however: 1. Steering wheel; I havent been able to find a walkthrough guide on how to 'best' drill the holes for a new wheel. Any suggestions? I'm a perfectionist, and i'd hate to have my wheel misaligned by even a micron. 2. Exhaust Wrap; any tips, beyond that of skills from wrapping mates in toilet paper at halloween as mummies (as a kid ofcourse...)? 3. Guages; given the speedo is calibrated..if I disconnect it to 'plug in' the new dash, will it lose its settings? Likewise with the other instruments. Many thanks in advance all!
