Re: Project Lex

I have the center caps. However the place that did the coating lost the metal clip for one of them. So I cant put them back on unless I want to run only 3 lol. I've given up on them getting me a replacement so I just need to order one myself.

Final version (hopefully) of the gauge bezel is being finished up in a high quality print. Here's some teaser pics I was sent!

Re: Project Lex

ABS or PLA? A little acetone on a rag, then rubbed across the front will really smooth out the surface and remove those lines from the printer.

Pretty cool that you are making your own parts, what CAD program do you use? I need to draw up some new wing supports for my car.

Re: Project Lex

I use Solidworks to draw the parts up. I was thinking of getting some kinda satin black vinyl wrap/sticker kinda material to put over the top. Kinda like how people get the CF vinyl to put on their interior trim, just something like that but satin black to sort of match the other black pieces, seems like it would look good assuming it sticks to this.

It's ABS.

Re: Project Lex

Slow on updates. My best time of the weekend was 11.1 @ 131mph. That was with a 1.9 60ft. I was spoiled with AWD in the past, so taking me a bit of time to learn how to get this thing out of the hole. But had fun and I'm happy with that for being my first passes in 2yrs, and first ever passes on this new setup.

What seemed to help me was doing a 2nd gear burn-out for ~5sec. Tires were at 14-15psi. I think I need to stay on the anti-lag a little longer, or perhaps raise my launch RPM and that might help me get a better 60'.

The whole family came up too which was really fun. The excitement on my boys faces was priceless. We stayed off site a couple miles away at a private site with a lakeside cabin. I think I will definitely be doing that again in the future!

Overall was a fun weekend. Here's a couple photos as well as a short video of my best pass.

Little video showing my best pass from this weekend. Could have been the worst pass in history, but the excitment on our little boys faces would have still made it all a complete success.

11.10 @ 131mph (1.9 60ft needs some work)

Re: Project Lex

You should go to rockfalls before winter. Get some more runs in and try to dial in your launching. Hope you can make some more passes before winter and get that beast into the 10.50s

Re: Project Lex

Car looked great up there man! Was really fun to watch and listen to. The traction looks tough honestly. Made me sad I didn't have my car up there, but staying in the condo, allowed me to drool over every pass lol. Offsite is very peaceful and glad they all got to enjoy the event!

OH! PS don't forget to the big minigolf Pirate's course next door, they would have a blast.

Re: Project Lex

Damn didn't even see ya there. Cool you got to see me run, how'd it look going down the track? Sounded like a gun shot everytime I shifted lol!

I gotta find the video, but I have an in car video of my first pass of the trip on Friday. It was next to Nate's pesky little black civic that completely left me in the dust Can't believe I lined up next to him on my first pass haha, he made me look sooooo slow! But if you read this Nate, thanks again for all your pointers throughout the weekend, and good chatting with ya! Cute kids too!!

Re: Project Lex

Sounds like a fun time! Maybe next year I'll bring the family also. Would make the chances of going higher.

2wd traction is all about seat time and trial and error. There are some tricks as well to try.

Re: Project Lex

A set of real drag tires would make a huge difference. But the class I was running in, I can't run slicks. If I can figure out how to hook on drag radials, pretty sure I would have been very competitive in my class. Well, that is until they kick me out for running too fast lol. I did get spoken too after that pass by tech.

Good stuff!! Offsite on lake cabin action is definitely the way to stay up there! No need for that BIR nonsense.

Re: Project Lex

Last year at pg it was super calm at night. I remember the past 2 years it was crazy at night with people riding pit bikes and other toys around. But last fall it was quiet and calm at night. No crazy stuff which was nice for some of to sleep.

At 135 you need to have some safety stuff and a license I believe. Since at 135 mph your suppose to be able to run a 9.99.

Yea the pops were funny, but that said, the chassis looks calm and controlled actually. That civic and a few others were roasting several awd cars even.
