I have been hanging around this sight for about a year now and figure it is about time I post some info and photos of my new streamliner build. This is my first build so go easy on me if you see anything that looks strange. I am allways open to any constructive comments. I have been working on the car for about a year now. I have designed and build every part on the car (minus wheelsandtire's of coarse) The car is set up to run as a I/GS. It has full adjustable suspension front and rear. It is powered by a mild Kawasaki ZX 10 engine. I plan on using this engine to test and get all the bugs out. I want to make sure the car goes straight and stops well before I go to a all out race engine. The car is 21 feet long, 29 inches high at the roll bar, 30 inches wide at the rear and will weigh about 1100lb with me in it. I am in the process of building the body at this time. It will be a one piece fibergass design. Again, this is my first LSC so if any of you veterans see anything I need to change, please let me know. It may save me money, time, parts or my life.

This is the car setting at ride height waiting for the body.



Parachute tube , fuel tank and battery box



This the rear axle assembly ready to be assembled. I made the axle from 1.75 4130. I machined a center carrier from 7075 T-6 aluminum for the inboard brake rotors.



Here is the rear axle assembly together and ready to be installed



This is another shot of the front suspension.

Here are a few more photos of the rear after I installed in the chassis.



Top view of rear axle



This is a top view of the front suspension. This is a four link design with a lower rocker connecting the front shocks. I am also using rack and pinion steering. The front tires are made by Goodyear. They were design to be used on some of the Top Fuel dragsters back in the 80"s My plans are to use this set up for Maxton and then us a solid aluminum wheel design for Bonneville.



Driver area. Carbon seat and 7 point belt system



Some guys like to use a hand clutch but I decided to use a foot operated clutch pedal.



Thats it for now. I will post more tomorrow. Thanks all!!   JerryO

Very nice. Get a feeling someone has worked around sprint cars for a while. Me, I've still not set foot on salt but from the pictures I'm thinking about the firewall fit and wondering how much salt is going to get tossed about inside the shell near the tires.
Still, it looks very well thought out and you have a plan.  cool

He will need to make wheel wells to seal that area off, I'm sure he has already planned on encorporating the wells into the outer shell.
