George, with the steering wheel that close to the dash, are you still going to mount your digatron to it, or somewhere else? Just curious. Plus I know you won't be runnin without a tach!

Actually its just sitting there. And no it won't run without a tach. I am not going to mount it in the wheel. I flipped the supersportsman last year twice and damaged my tach so after Talladega its coming out of the wheel. Gonna find a safer place.. Not sure where that is gonna be yet.

In an earlier reply you said it was legal for every division except for super stock. Why would it not be legal??????

Probably the wheelbase.You can change the wheelbase in all the other classes according ro the rule of that class.However in super stock the rules clearly states, "Factory Stock".

What I meant was with a simple change of tires it could be legal in all other ARMA classes except Super Stock and thats because super Stock must run 16 inch rear wheels. As far as chassis legal for the class yup build it with 16 inch tires and you have a super stock.

Dash/steering column support all tubing is thin wall 3/4 tubing


The next 7 pictures are simply different angles of the support tubing under the frame and how I did it.


Where we come to a change in angle we cut the tubing bent it and welded it back to tegther to get it to follow the contour of the chassis.


Is important you start with a straight chassis before you do all this work.


Close up of rear axle bearing mount and how the tubing was run to accomodate


rear axle in and total view


Overall view of chassis stiffening


steering arm, bottom view of steering


Ok lots a wrok done and few pictures were taken here is an overall view of the drive train it uses a centrifugal ratech mini cup  clutch and 1 to1 gear box


Clutch has a pulley welded on and the same size on gear box uses a belt tensioning setup basically a clutch system as I use on any other prepared build. Only this ons is not billet.



Close up view of sprocket setup. everything is done here except I have to add the chain tensioner


this and the next few pictures are a look at it where it sits now.




Still have to wire it add the trhottle cable, get a throttle lever for the steering wheel, bleed brakes and finsih the head. The exhaust is done and used a silver ceramic high temp paint o it. Already used this on another exhaust and it doesn't turn colors great stuff. Thats all for now

If you look closely there is no clutch rod going to the pulley setup just a spring. Its for tension only.
