We still are planning on taking this car to WOS.
What differences can we expect from the experience different than a SCTA experience. Any rules differences? Different tech forms? Etc?

Its a great event, we went last year.  Since you have a new car it may be a bit more challenging at first but the actual running of the event is great. Dan still runs impound so that is nice... As said before, many of the same people...

We haven't posted in a while, mostly because we have been busy! Our FB page gets updated more often since it is just easier to do in a short period of time. If you don't have a facebook account, you can still view our page if you wish since it is a public page.

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Carbinite-LSR/115785421856394

Also feel free to track-back on the links below to our photobucket page, I just loaded up a stack of photos. Some good, some not so good, but there are some additional build photos there. Hopefully we can go back and update an entire timeline of the build, but you know how that goes.

It is looking good that we will be ready for WOS, hopefully the weather is going to be cooperative. 

Otherwise, here's a couple of more recent shots to let you see what we've been doing.

Rob, you already know about my love affair with this car!

Good luck at WOS! cheers

Wow, such a nice liner!  I have been following your build since you started posting the Solidworks (?) drawings.  That is a monster program I have been lucky to work with for som 15 years or so.  It allows much better packaging if you get the parts drawn accurately!
Keep the info coming, both here and on facebook, it is like hanging out in a buds garage.
Great work, hope the weather holds for the runs this year.  grin

Nice crane setup and bolt down.  Good to see the rubber mounting.  We had trouble securing a long mod roadster because the trailers flex more than the race car, and locating points change length on segmented highways.

Planning a new trailer myself for the next build.  I use doubled snatch blocks, currently, to slow down the action during alignment.  Will go 4-part reduction next due to lift battery drains too fast when winch slows down, but runs forever when its not.

Beautiful car and concepts! cheers

P.s.  Drown the winch cable in LPS3 before you get on the salt.  The stranded wire does capillary action from salt anywhere on the cable and any moisture at all.  The corrosion goes all the way to the drum overnite.  I also need to LPS1 the heavy wires to the winch next time...same problem with stranded copper wire.  Thats why my ocean sailboats had solid copper wiring.  Hope this helps save you money.

Also, if you unload on a slope or trailer unlevel you need a cheater bar off the back of crane post so guys can control the swing.  I often have a ratchet rope rigged if it looks spooky, to keep it from getting away.

Rob,

Nice work and well thought out. I hope you have a successful maiden voyage.

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.
