I have a little project involving a 1/5 scall RC truck that im building from scratch. It would involve mostly milling on some 1/4" aluminum.

If she just needs the experience i have some of the CAD drawings all layed out already, just let me know what format they need to be in. Or if you want them in PDF format i suppose would work too.

if you can email me some pdf drawings, ill have her look at it and tell me what she thinks.


any input from anyone yet on headers or an intake?

also, she kind of liked the idea of tb. does anyone have any schematics for one?

scale model of l67 is out because she doesnt know anything about l67 and we dont have any schematics of one. if someone does though, id jump on it.

You're not gonna find scematics for much off the wall stuff. I could make you a Series II TB schematic, but I don't have one to measure.

Need to know the shop capabilities. I've designed a S1 SC cooling isolation plate (not a true intercooler, but a step in that direction). I'd prefer it be CNC'd and have the 3D CAD files for it. John Wikoff and I bounced the design back and forth a bit awhile back, but there were too many complicating factors involved.

Some of the design work that isn't done yet are the method to adapt the alternator bracket extension to the nosedrive, and extending the fuel rail to reach. So I'm not really ready yet, but could produce the 2D files if she needs them.

It would be .375" aluminum plate, and the same basic size in X and Y as the LIM.

I have three years experience with AutoCAD if you need any assistance, this sounds like a wicked project

[quote="willwren"]Need to know the shop capabilities. /quote]

she said she was pretty sure she could CNC. she would like to look at the 2D drawings, figuring it "couldnt hurt"

unless this is all covered with red tape, of course.

*bump*

she discarded badges completely, as they are "too complex". still no drawings for her to play with.
