So some good news, two friends and myself are going in and renting a shop so we have space to work on our stuff as well as store some cars/trailers.

The bad news is its a shanty town from South Africa but its really cheap and we can more or less do whatever we want. Its hidden enough where no one will ever find the bodies, but close enough to home that its not a bitch to drive to. We'll have space to get our own tire machines and move my big equipment like band saws/presses/hoists etc into the shop so free up space in my garage. We're planning on flipping cars for a bit, and its a private industrial park so we can store/drive the cars around without paperwork which is awesome. Hopefully we can fix the place up cause its hot as a camels ass in the desert and needs a good scrubbin.

Congrats! I miss having access to a garage space to do shit on the car. I had a friend in Portland that had a shop with a lift.

I'd totally put you to work on my crapbox engine if I was on that side of the States

Had a hell of a weekend, we went up to NEFR with three cars, on friday one smacked a tree really hard so that was our first repair of the day but we got it back on track.





Later that night we lost one car in a roll, the car has TSS fab king pins in the front knuckles and theyre probably an inch longer than a factory ball joint but they use a bearing in the lower control arm, so theres a ton of leverage on the casting that forms the ball joint pocket, the car landed sideways from a jump and i belive that fractured the casting, which then let go a few corners later. Both drivers walked away but the car is a write off. We didnt build it, it was purchased over a year ago from some sketchy team and we had to rip the whole drivetrain/wiring out because it was a mess. But the engine/driveline is still good. This was the first event out with this car but this is racing, time to move on.



Heres the car at 11pm on friday when we were winching it out of the woods



Video of the roll



You can see the failure of the casting, pinch bolt tightly in place. The casting failed to the outside of the knuckle, facing the wheel, which is where it would break in the instance the wheel/knuckle was forced inwards to the car in an impact (seen in the video at 9:40 landing from the jump)



And the ball joint/king pin securely in place.



In other news, i was in good company at service stops with an ex-prodrive car. This thing is an absolute cherry!

No, if he even picks up another subaru it'll use OE knuckles/balljoints, no ones ever had issues with them. This is road race stuff, i dont know why someone would use them on a rally car.
