  1. Wrong engine (not for a 2ZZ-GE) and not a dry sump... thanks though.
  2. Oh...very good! Thank you. I'll check both of them out.
  3. This is what one looks like from the other side of the pond from the front... and from the back will all of my ratings.
  4. You'd think that F1 would learn from MotoGP's mistakes... when they changed fromthe 500-cc, 2-stroke engines to the 1,000-cc, 4-cycle engines, I just quit watching. It was no longer exciting to watch. Riding those 2-strokes on the edge was like grabbing a tiger by the tail. It looked like the riders were on the edge. It was so interesting to watch the 3-liter V8's v V10's v V12's and then they all settled down to 19,000-RPM V10's, (even Ferrari, they were the last to accept that V10 was a better configuration than their beloved V12s) that was a scream to watch. Even the turbo era was OK. But t
  5. Anybody know of a cheap place to get scans from? I'd like to design a dry sump pan and need the bottom of the engine scanned. I'm In Worcester...but willing to travel. It's for this project...
  6. This is what forged, ceramic coated pistons look like for a 2ZZ-GE...
  7. I thought I'd tease you with a couple of section views...just so you can see how much work went into this project.
  8. Why didn't you replace those three hoses, t-fitting and screw plug with one longer hose? That way you would have only two locations for potential leaks instead of the six that you have right now.
  9. I fell asleep on this reply...sorry for that. Intake temperature directly effects engine temperature. And there is this pesky thing like the 1st law of thermodynamics, where the more you compress the air (smaller supercharger pulley), the hotter it gets. So, it can spiral out of control very quickly.
  10. If the discs are used on the roads/streets, painting/powder coating will extend the life (especially if driven in the winter with the salt on the roads.) and make them look nicer... the one caveat is that 3 surfaces cannot be painted! Those are the surface that mates (fays) with the hub, the wheel and the disc. If the discs are floating discs, then the inside of the bobbin grooves need to be protected from the paint also. The reason for not painting those surfaces is that the wheel and/or disc will not run true if painted! And the bobbins won't slide in the grooves if painted. This is very imp
  11. Confirmation of tickets for those of us that had Lotuses, but don’t at the moment, was a real headache! I didn’t book any reservations until I had tickets in hand. At that point all was booked up. As it turned out, I got the place I wanted to stay at but had to cancel my other reservations. Lines at the store were massive... there were only two tills!!! It would have been nice had everything in the store had x% discount for the event. Why was the motorsports building closed? The only real presence of motorsports was Clive... Lotuses are probably the most tracked car (percentage-wise)
  12. Colin Chapman built the Lotus Mark I in 1948. Two years later, it seemingly fell off the face of the earth, never to be seen again. Do you know where it is? In the spring of 1948, Colin Chapman, founder of Lotus, built the company's first car, the Mark I (pictured above). It was a modified Austin Seven with a reinforced chassis, lightweight panels, and easily replaceable parts—the kind of stuff Lotus is famous for today. He raced the Mark I for a little while before selling it in 1950 for £135 (around $177), after which point it was never seen again. Now, Lotus is asking your help to
  13. I've changed mine to a 3" from Really Light Stuff on my CUP260. Worked great! But I also change the intercooler to a larger one, also from Really Light Stuff. Anything smaller, just generates heat. The supercharger gets spun out of its efficiency envelope. I also had Jim's 2bular DT3 de-cat system and then 525-550 cc injectors are really needed. That makes a great package.
  14. I’ll take it!!! I’ll send PayPal payment in about an hour when I get home.
  15. I called them Friday afternoon and they told me that they were all booked up...nothing available at any price. If someone has got reservations that they can't use any more, I'd be willing to buy them from you. Please PM me if you've got.
  16. @BibsI missed where that was mentioned... I would have like to meet up with you... Will you now be able to refund my payment?
  17. The Lexus equivalent to Toyota's TRD is F-Sport. So it can't be from a Lexus and be called a TRD.
  18. And no stress analysis is complete without a check of the principal loads. principal compression loads are highest, no surprise because I put a 1 bar load. maximum tensile loads.
  19. I've finally gotten the design to the point where I like it. It meets my criteria for loads. It is 10x as strong as it needs to be and only weighs 1.48kg. And the max deflection is only 0.158mm at the red spot. You can also make out some of the interior design features. OK...some movement on this project!
