Mike,

Roadster looks great!

PS - I owe you an apology. I gave you a short answer to your question about the Honda F1 car using TC. The truth is I didn't ask but, I think it was turned off from the sound of driver's pedaling.

What's original on this roadster  huh  - this is just a little bit more than "modified" wink
Nice clean work, very solide base frame.
Keep us update.

Some more of the belly pan & chassis etc.
Gary's been doing most of the fab work, I just kind of get in the way as I learn how to do things other than engines  cheesy
It truly has been a learning experience building a land speed car from scratch, lots of work but you all know that!
Later I'll try to post pictures of the water, fuel, & dry sump tanks, along with the steering & other details.

Thanks for sharing this Mike.  I had not seen the photos when you first posted and love to see a well thought out machine.
Nice work for a motor head......

Mike,
   Is that a clutchless air shifted Jerico? Does it pop out of gear when you let off the throttle like the Pro Stock transmissions do? Just curious.
Thanks,

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Did you make the seat, or is commercially available?

Tom this unit does not overrun when you "pedal" the throtle. It has the same type of dog rings as the 4 speed we used in the #265 Firebird and does not fall out of gear.

Mike

John

John the seat is a standard unit made by kirkey and cost about $150. It was a little to tall for our cage so we cut it down about 6".

Thanks for asking.
