The Joy of Six - One Pint Left
Stray Number 2 has just walked in totally wet through and gone to sleeeeeep on theeeee keeeyboaaaard.
It occurs to me that the bodywork is quite angular, so have you considered getting some of this?:Finding my set of engineering compasses, set squares and protractor has really made my life much easier.
Less of the trig needed, now it's pretty well much pure geometry. Bliss!!!
If the chassis was only 29" it'd be narrower than most internal house doors, 30"!!Having truly horrible problems getting the rear view and side views of the Higman to match on the scale drawing.
I suspect the numbers I've been given for wheelbase and chassis width aren't the right ones. Either the wheelbase isn't 78 inches, or the chassis width isn't 29 inches or they're *both* something else.
So I've asked a friend who wrote the book on Superstox racing. Literally. Will see what he says.
I hadn't thought of that to be honest.It occurs to me that the bodywork is quite angular, so have you considered getting some of this?:
It comes in sizes up to 3mm thick, which might also be suitable for the chassis, bumper etc.
That's the maximum permitted width for the current Superstox regulations. It's basically a rectangular frame made out of 50mm square box section, so nothing terribly exotic. Engine and cab sit on top, suspension and propshaft underneath. Axles are basically Cortina / Sierra and the then engine was the Pinto. (Now Zetec)If the chassis was only 29" it'd be narrower than most internal house doors, 30"!!
The older cars are narrower and have a longer wheelbase, so current regs don't apply...
