Proof that quality fab knows no language barrier, or needs a cement floor.
Camaro Trophy Truck
and it need stainless hi psi vent lines because???
still i like the "off road" stang in the thomas crown afair way beter looking
Thom, care to give us non desert truck people the low down on the steering?
I sorta get it...I think.
I think those might be for a cooler. I know Nascar uses them and maybe they are going to
looks like a full hydro double ended ram.
also looks like the rear vent lines are for an oil cooler set up.
Yah, my guess was going to be diff fluid cooler too.
Don't know about you, but I'd drive the hell out of it!!!
That is the most beautiful Camaro i have ever seen.
hahaha.. well when i was building up my D60 front for my k5... i had it sitting in the front of the garage right in front of my '67 camaro that was up on stands so it was lifted off the ground...
I kept looking at that and getting some crazy ideas...
when my friends would come over i'd point to the D60 under the front of my car and tell them i'm just gonna bootie fab some spring hangers and leafs on the front of my camaro.
that thing is bada$$ and he didn't cut up a real camaro to do it!
that is insane, just look at all that fab work! that awsome.
I had to look at it, a LOT!
There's a lot of stuff in the way of getting the steering shaft to the rack & pinion, so he came up with what you see. The aluminum box up front is just a 90* angle drive. Likely has some sort of low to zero backlash gearset in it. The rest is UJ's and carrier bearings. Def one of the more exotic steering linkages I've seen though.
The reason for the braided Vent hose is that anything less is too easily a failure mode. They don't have time to look things over except when in the pits. Those are far enough apart that if the vent tore loose and dirt got in the diff it could easily be done b4 they caught it. What's $100 in hose and fittings when it's costing you thousands for one race?
A cooler system would dump the cooled oil directly over where the R&P meet. That's where the heat is, cool it first.
Hey Ryan B! I just noticed, you need a new user name. Leave that one at it's current number of posts.
