What does this windage tray do exactly?BBWBParticipantAugust 17, 2021 at 1:46 pmPost count: 1339alykatParticipantAugust 18, 2021 at 6:35 amPost count: 968
This should make a huge difference in the corners.John JonesModeratorAugust 18, 2021 at 8:23 amPost count: 13333
FUCK YEAH!!! I am surprised no one else mentioned this or we hadn’t thought of this yet… 😎 We are slow but sure learners over here!!!!
This is why I was seeing oil light in the corners…. opps…. 😎 😎 😎 Problem solved…. I am going to put a windage tray in every motor I build for now on!!! Shasta has some tight turns… I guess if you have a sump it isn’t needed…

lots of progress getting done each day!!! JJ primed the fenders Monday night, I sanded them down again yesterday while he worked the front and rear apron 👍🏻 Thanks for your help on the Windage Tray Pat and Franz!!

Weight saving discussion this morning. Going to pull some bulky parts off we don’t need for short course racing. RACE WEIGHT!!!
We will build it if it comes.Audrey JonesModeratorAugust 20, 2021 at 8:38 amPost count: 1549
#RaceWeight #lightweight 😎
I pulled out the big air cleaner and the window fuel fill… probably like 10+ pounds right there!! Ordered a new fuel filler for inside the car 👍🏻
JJ did a dirty shop paint job yesterday on the aprons and b-pillar..
He even did some little touch-ups 👌🏻 #trailerqueen 😅
Tried to get this dent out with a football too… it’s very happy like that though 😬
It finally stopped raining so we could push the doormobile outside and paint the fenders this morning!!
Sweet one coat paint job 🤩

Now that parts are arriving I was able to check cam lobe to windage tray clearance.
Opened a hole up around to oil pickup tube to drop it down enough.
We will build it if it comes.Dave-coParticipantAugust 21, 2021 at 3:31 pmPost count: 78

DAVE!! I was wondering what had happened with you!! Now come on!!! Timmy is the one who guided us through this new windage tray design…. So I am inclined to go with it…. Lets see a pic of how Dave does it… 😎
Car is going well!!! But what a full time job this racecar is!!!
We have removed the big air cleaner, the fill in the 1/4 window, and trying to shave weight were we can… Car is going to be LIGHT!!!!!!!! Thinking I may need to start dieting for the next two weeks… I can drop 10 pounds in 2 weeks… it would be hard to get 10 more pounds off the car… 😎
I have decided to go ahead and fix and repair and refinish my hood and deck… 😎
