  • brake rotors

  • Wilwood "They make PN 170-2637 that appears to match the requirements for 4x100 brake rotor hats." Barry
  • buck material

  • TAP Plastics; TAP X-30 Polyurethane Foam
    "This material works better than the green flower foam in my experience, as it is a much harder material. Keep in mind that you cannot hotwire urethane foam, if that is a concern.
    The two-part expanding foams such as this would typically be poured into a hollow former immediately after mixing - you let it expand into the volume and let harden, then shape it later with shurfoam files or hacksaw blades and rough sandpaper. This foam needs to be contained while it is expanding, otherwise it runs all over the place and sticks and bonds to everything, including your clothes." Rennie Clayton
  • General Plastics; LAST-A-FOAM® FR-7100 Modeling Foam
    "You need urethane foam, you can bondo it, prime, paint, glass over it any thing. if your parts are small, you can buy small packs of usable green foam from florists or flower and garden shops [the kind they stick the flowers into for arrangements]. If you need larger (2'x8'x2-4-6") try the link [above]. They also have tooling board which is very dense, and more expensive, but works like soft wood. Glue it together with bondo. I usually thin it down with poly resin to make the joints thin, makes it easier to sand. The florist foam is not real dense (i.e. largeporosity), but you're coating and finishing the surface any way. Largely it's cheap and works! Good luck." Dave Craddock
  • Melamine board
    "If you are wanting to make molds of square things like boxes and what-not, that don't involve compound curves or fillets, then you're almost better off using melamine board screwed together to construct the mold. That, and glass work out pretty well for flat surfaces." Rennie Clayton
  • Styrofoam
    "I have used Styrofoam covered with dry wall compound on an air box and a body. The advantages are that it is cheap and easy to sand (you can use a damp sponge for faring). The disadvantages are it is very soft (you can dent it leaning on it while sanding), the dry wall compound must be applied in fairly thin layers, and ALL the foam must be completely covered before painting or glassing (see the nice holes solvents can make). This is not a recommendation, just another alternative." Chuck Smith

  • Mark's Performance,
    760-948-1346
    "Mark built all the early model (side exhaust) systems for Stohr. He builds that system in either mild steel and stainless. Lee, is currently using a slightly different design (it exhausts upwards) but I think that the exhaust system is still being built by the same outfit." Hasty Horn

    "I've had good luck with their racing radiators. They will be happy to calculate the size needed. For our uses many people have used the VW radiator, I had severe overheating with a stock unit. As soon as I changed to the Ron Davis unit the problem was solved. They make a direct replacement for the VW unit. They call it a Scirocco radiator that is used primarily in drag cars."

  • "I had good luck with an extra heavy duty Shimano Mountain Bike Shifting cable with a nylon lined sheath. Pretty cheap and was reliable for me." Scott Chesser
  • "Go to a good bicycle shop and buy bulk cable by the foot. They sell it in several sizes and colors and have all the cable ends to make it up for you. Make sure and try to get cable with an inner liner as your run will be long and you need inner liner to make less friction." Rex Urban
  • "Go to a motorcycle shop and get 1.5mm throttle cable, and 2mm teflon lined cable housing. This will provide plenty of slipperiness. This has worked fine for many years with no problems. If you know what type of ends you need and the lengths, a good shop can provide you with the ready made setups." Ted Arken

The overall quote for CNC moulds and 5 foils made that would not have shiny carbon surfaces, but rather rough painable surfaces was $10,500." Oppenheimer
