Roll structure progresses (sans helmet hoops).
I have a business trip to the US in May and will pickup some bits while I am there.

Thanks Stainless
Our company offices are, unfortunately as I'd love to see you cars, Irvine Ca and Madison NJ. I've managed to visit both this trip but it doesn't leave me much time to get to Simpson in Ca (if they allow visitors) and some parts are being sent to a hot rod colleague in NJ, which is why I depart from that coast (don't have to lug them via Delta cattle class - don't think they would be amused but Int'l should be okay).

I'll wave as I flyover on Wednesday May 23rd.

Just received my DJ harness (for set-up and testing in the UK) after several months - translation issue - my mistake; I wanted to 'loop' the shoulder webbing around a cross member but Loop is a different meaning and what I should have specified is wrap around. Loop is continuous from the latch, over one shoulder, loop a tube, back over the other shoulder to the latch - that makes it a 6 point harness doesn't it - I assume a 'point' is a chassis attachment.

The adjuster on the wrist restraints is two piece - I thought there was dialogue about that but DJ had been approved - now more confused than when I woke up this morning.

Yes indeed, John. Plenty of room for you if/when you visit Wichita, Kansas. Guarantee plenty of bench racing too.

And I hope it goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway) if you need anything this side of the pond, or are visiting the UK.... we are about 35 mins from Heathrow.

I was wondering why I was not seeing turbulators on LSR cars but then discovered it may be a patent issue (US Patent 9,394,011 B1)   grin

Not sure but like vortex generators, knowing where to put them is a problem. Placement is not intuitive so putting them in the wrong place does little to no good. They look cool, however.

The Lemming Motors aero test facility is almost complete.

It may prove to be a rabbit hole exercise but I learned quite a lot doing the research, or, perhaps, it is more accurate to say that I learned more things I didn't know I didn't know.

It is intended to answer one question for the Lakester configuration.

If I can get a graph-able drag response I'll take the conclusion, if not I will revert to plan 'A' - toss a coin. At this time I have to seriously uprate the fanage so although this was always going to be a low speed scale tunnel the current breeze in the test area is not going to cut it.

Bother.

Comet - I don't want to damage the model!

On a serious note: Wrist Restraints
I just received my 2018 rule book and wasn't 100% sure on the new rule interpretation so I sent the attached pics to tech and got a thumbs up from Lee really quickly. I wonder if they have had a lot of correspondence on that one.

Tech (and this forum) have been very helpful to me; being remote as I am I cant afford to bake issues in and discover them when I turn up half way around the world.
