Man, what is it with this area and Prod people? :lol: Build progress might be slower until my daughter's over a year old but might take you up on that sometime.

You should stop the design work and just buy my 1st gen that already has all that. :)

Just because the coffee kicked in and I remembered how much I loathe the secret squirrel thing, what I'm thinking of doing is a torque arm. Susko's 3 link (among other things) moves the instant center forwards to reduce anti-squat compared to what happens when you lower the stock suspension, but Jim was fundamentally building IT stuff and I think that the anti-squat needs more reduction for Prod. I don't think you can get there with a 3 link within the limits of Prod rules (works fine for GT, mind you) so I have a mind to try something else to move the instant center around.

Matt, I'd love to, but right now it's a lot easier for me to generate the spare time to design and make stuff (including floater hubs) than it is to generate a single lump of cash; the eternal 1st gen RX-7 guy problem, right? ;)

As a dad of two kids (now 9 and 7), it is only going to get worse for time. Find a nice warm spot in the shop and a nice bouncy seat and go to town. Both my kids were out there early and still love coming out to “help” - they’re a hoot once they know their numbers and where the wrenches are!

It's all fun and games until the kids want to race too... My annual racing budget is now split between three racers!

I mean there is a real kart track 2 miles away from my house... would be fun if she's interested.

Matt, you and Bill kill me with your racing interested short people. I've met Bill's short people and there wonderful!!! My WI granddaughter 15 years likes to electric Kart, BUT her dad and grandfather are quicker, Hannan, riiight and we've practiced and raced gazillon's of laps. Hannah, a sophomore has allowed her school and club volleyball to totally destroy our downhill skiing. MI grand kids Tanner 7 and Samantha 11 haven't got to Karts YET. They will as their father was a very good karter.

Dan, if I recall correctly called Badger Raceway (now called something else maybe) has been there since 1959-1961???

Now off to the Ford/Ferrari movie. People say it's worth the watch.

Wolf Paving Raceway now, but yep, that's the one.

This got pretty off track - I think I'll try building my idea and seeing at least if it works.

If you guys think you're spending money on your cars, wait until the karts bite.
Whatever it takes .
