G'day Tony,

Given the short distances we run, wouldn't it be easier to run a lighter oil in the hubs?

Cheers,
Rob

Hi Rob,

We will be using a light oil in the hubs, its the same as our engine, differential and transmission oil.  As part of our staring procedures all the oils and engine water will be per-heated.  Some of the NASCAR guys use the hub heaters before qualifying on the long tracks like Talladega  Superspeedway which is 2.66 miles (4.28 km).    Tony

Struth- when I first saw the photo I thought you must have been into kinky sex or something! Was quite relieved when when I read what they really were.

Scared me Tony, I looked at the picture before I read and I thought you were in trouble with the wife from the old pit crew post and she picked up some ankle and wrist restraints with electric hookup to torture you....
Luckily it is car parts.... you gonna need a 10KW generator to get this thing going?  I figured the 100 degrees at the salt was warm enough for synthetic oil to work right....

Don't give her any ideas.  shocked


Don,

Its not that bad, all the heater lines go into a control box that I can set the individual temperatures on and the other main part of the starting procedure is the switch from warm up plugs to the race plugs.  Tony

Tested the cool suit tank today and I am pretty much pleased with the way it turned out. I just have to put a hole for the wires and its done. Tony

Tony
1st, could you show a picture of your cool suit pump with out the water. Or give the part # for it. I googled Volvo pump and came up with several options.

2nd, If one of your avatar maids bends over to buckle the driver in, the lap belt may suddenly get really tight.

Thanks
Ron

Don, Now that I am older I am all for comfort.  If you think about it you do more idling the engine and sitting in you car than actually running down the track.  I need to make my seat next and I might make it water cooled  for those hot days sitting in the car waiting to run.   cheers 


Ron, The Volvo pump I use is for the drink box and for brake cooling.  The pump I used for the cool suit tank is a submersible bilge pump (I think its a pro-pump).  Tony
