 :-D   Well we have finally shifted the trans---we have checked out the clutch an we will definitely be able to change the relationship of clutch depression vs when the trans shifts---Saint Francis definitely did a nice job with his design---very straight forward in how one changes it.

The Thump must have been my hard head---- I have not been able to replicate it again--

On another hard headed note---I got caught up in Apple's fight with our Deep State govt. and lost all of my phone contacts..



 Please call or text me at 602-762-2211 if you wouldn't mind me having your phone number---thanks Sparky

Well,  we are progressing the thump was in the dry sump pump.. Francis and I are working on fairings for the axles and will try to post pictures..My job is to modify the outer body panels Francis will build the NACA 66012 fairings out of metal reinforced wooden ribs and fiberglass coverings.  We will run the rear with about -8 degs. attack angle and when we build the front they will be -3.

Sparky,
I am pretty sure that you already have this in your axle/aero plan but if you need additional down force you should make up a number of "wicker bills" AKA Gurney strips of different height and make provisions to be able to attach to the trailing edge of the wing section. Pretty good increase in down force with not much drag penalty.

Francis is out front on this --he tells me our trailing edge is going to be metal so that we can do just that

We are getting close to have a new 54" front axle so that we can get the frt tires out side of the inner plane of the rear tires mounted  on the new rear 8.8 axle.

Special thanks to Marty for the great welding and to Podunk for the axle tube bore job.  The 8.8 Pickup axle has a 3.25 OD tube.  We then used a 3" .500 wall tube and turned it down to go inside the factory tube that Podunk a squared up by boring it.  As you can see we pushed it all the way into the housing until it stopped.  This set up for a very strong welds and a very strong axle.
