Didn't like the idea of having a solid tube coming from the chassis to the steering wheel so after checking with the certifier I have changed it to a system with universals at least if someone hits me the steering will collapse. Cut the VW steering box off at the bottom, acquired a Nissan Pulsar GTIR steering column which has two universals on it. Sent both to an engineering company to have a spline machined on the steering box end.

Inserted the tube into the chassis and welded it into place. I'm using a 16mm high tensile bolt to support the brake peddle.

Machined a tube to weld into the chassis this has a 16mm thread to screw the peddle boss to. Machined and pressed bearing into the peddle boss. Waiting for the peddle to be laser cut.

09-25-2009 10:30 PM New Manifold & carbs
Went to Adelaide Australia on business had ½ a day spare so went for a drive and found this Outlawspeed shop. Looked around for ½ an hour after an Edelbrock performer manifold twin 500cf carburettor set couldn't find it so talked to Ben Twomey. He told me he could get one over from the states in a few days. As these are priced in New Zealand at $4000.00nz plus I expected $3500.00 at least. When Ben came back with $1818.00au I nearly fell over. Called the real boss for her permission as you do. Hi tailed it back in and purchased it before he realised it was a mistake. As I was leaving in 3 day's these boys organised everything importing it shipped it to my hotel. If you are in New Zealand and don't want to get ripped off with someone wanting his first 50 footer on every sale go to this web site http://www.outlawspeed.com.au/ ask for Ben and get a price he will export it to NZ also. 10 points for a top team in Adelaide.
