the new formula#10 build (no booty fab!)

okay,,,,,, so i started over. here's the old build thread after the jambo i went and got a STRAIGHT frame from jca. thanks for the hook up jc! its an IFS frame with loads of brackets and what not on it still...



so the last 2 weeks (with the help of dave (cragrat)) i have cut off and ground down and welded up all the holes, i am going to sand blast it and then paint it....i also learned that my welder was smitten with problems and thats why i could never get a good weld....now i am a pro





dave came over today and we put the frame and motor on my trailer. i am going to continue to build it there so it will be mobile. saturday i am taking it to his house and we are going to fab up the motor mounts and tcase crossmember....



even though i started over i am glad i did what i did cuz i learned alot and now i can do it right espicially since dave is officially on my team!!! and is pretty much leading the project..thanks Dave!!!

Your old project wasn't that bad - was it??? Granted you got a little side tracked on that peddle assembly but you took care of that.

You might be careful on how many rigs you try building although you have a long ways to get to BoogerWeldz record......

BAWAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHHAHAHAHA Thats too funny....I didn't realize it was that bad. Sorry bud, but I was at the Jambo, and was wondering what the hype was about. I don't know how I missed that

Wish ya luck in the future and P.S. don't weld on painted, oily, or contaminated surfaces, not matter how quick you need to finish. Its just going to jeopardize your safety in the long run

For the record ...
Booty Fab and repairs...

1. Bent frame ... passenger rail was 1" higher than the other. (replaced the frame with a IFS frame from JCA, all brackets have now been removed and all the holes have been welded up and ground down for that "clean shaven" look)
2. Welding ... Proper assembly of the welder would have helped. If you can see "O" rings at the connection point, that is not good. (Repaired) I made him practice on some scrap before touching the frame. The welds that were made before the welder repair where basically without gas, no penetration and would have failed.
3. Pedal assembly ... Using the stock pedal assembly could have worked but removing the pedals from the cowl section would have been a good idea. (A Bling-Bling pedal assembly has been purchased and will be installed properly)
4. Transfer case mount welded to the belly pan ... A new transfer case mount and motor mounts will be fabbed up 5-15-04 moving the engine assembly back 8" and down 1".

I will help and guide him in his quest to be a "Formula Toy Player"
but, I will not build the rig for him.

I will have to ask Camo if it's in the rules for spotters to "add ballast" to thier bodies ... because you have an unfair advantage
