Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

I use a stub shaft and use an oil that has a high zinc formula.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

This weekend was fruitful. The k member is coming along awesome. I need to figure out the steering rack mounting points and the driveshaft loop.

It's made from 1.5" .083 4130 chromoly. My tube fab skills are getting better. All this practice will pay off on my next car, I want to build a competitive rwd chassis car.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Those notches look so nice and tight. Rwd chasis car seems like it would be right up your alley. What platform would u use?

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Thanks for the feedback. The chassis I'm thinking about is a new camaro. I want to buy an insurance total loss, theft recovery car. The more that's gone the better, for the exception of body/trim parts.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Damn I bet that's a major weight loss. What's the weight difference between the two?

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

New Camaro is pretty heavy chassis to start with, why not something lighter? That K-member is sweet. That was my next project if I kept my talon.

Word. It will be way lighter than in its stock form. It needs to weigh a decent amount too. As a big cube big block and a couple of 88's or 91's will make rowdy power.

That looks amazing. How did you get the tube ends curved and angled to mate so perfectly? Fly cutter?
