I would be worried by the damage that solid prop shaft could do if one end of it came loose one end at 7750rpm.

Yes Tony. It's frightening by all accounts.

I'm currently working on the modifications to the uprights. I'm going to change the caster/KPI to 5/7 degrees.

Todays video - I finally take the cutting wheel to the cockpit area a go for a test fit.

I re-assess the cockpit, and consider moving the pedals forward.

It should have been an easy job, but the pedal box fabrication continues. Ep18

A frustrating day welding with issues on the torch and also snapping bolts, but we get there in the end.

Ep20 - I find out what happens when you try and tig weld brazed joints.

TIG brazing works well if you use TIG brazing rods but ordinary brazing rods won't work they just fizz and spit. You might find if your chassis was oxy-acetylene brazed that you need to grind off the old brazing filler before you can make a good TIG brazed joint,

More specifically and for anything remotely structural aluminium bronze tig rods, defintely not the more common and cheaper silicon bronze rods.
And gussets... I love a good gusset (ooo... err missus).
