Shocks

Have a pair of Carrera(?) threaded aluminum body shocks for sale. Marked 6253/1 on each also marked 1-2-3 for adjustments and has "ARS 4719" and "ARS 4720" on the other one. Both have spherical bearings which don't feel loose. These came in a box of parts I got with a car I bought several years back...

Re: Lynx A Bodywork Wanted

The spare nose's I have don't sound like the right one. These are the big, ugly, "hammerhead" looking things. The nose you described sounds like the one I have on my car, no spares on that one although I wish I did. Not sure of the tail, will get it out by the weekend and take a picture for you

Re: Lynx A Bodywork Wanted

I've got a spare lynx nose and tail but not sure if it's for an "A". Can you describe it or have a picture. Mine is kind of buried might be a day or 2 before I can get to it but if I know what the parts you're looking for I should know if what I have is correct.

Re: Brake thought for the month.

Is there a reason wheel cylinders are placed vertically at the 9 or 3 o'clock position? Obviously makes it hard if not impossible to bleed properly when mounted like that. Seems to me they should always be at the top with bleeder up at highest point but I have seen them in different positions on dif...

Try looking here:

or here:

Also when first starting out you might want to buy a "race ready" car. Unless you already have FV or other race car experience.
Good Luck!

Re: Getting Started in Formula Vee BOOK

My son is in the process of rebuilding my old Zink. When I saw this post I immediately downloaded the book and sent it to him. Even though he's been around vee's since he was born it doesn't hurt to give him more info. Hopefully he'll have the car done this year and be ready for driving school and l...

Re: August Minutes

If we lose 5% lap time due to an inexpensive tire how about getting an inexpensive spec manifold to get the 5% back? Keeps lap times the same as now and will definitely get guys like me back on the track more often. Have not upgraded my manifold since I don't want to spend $1,000 and still have a le...

Re: Micro SD card size

I second Steve's advice. Use a different card for each session and you never have to worry about losing any more than 1 session. I use a fresh card and fresh batteries every time.

Re: Head and neck restraints

Thanks to all who answered for the great info. Just one more question. I am going to order the Pro Rage this week but also need new harness, do 3" shoulder belts fit or do I need to get 2"? Can't seem to find that listed anywhere.

Re: Head and neck restraints

Dennis, Your observations are helpful. Glad to hear it fits a reclining position since I'm in a Lynx these days also. Do you have the sliding tethers? I found a closeout sale online for a unit with fixed tethers brand new at a good price. Just wondering if the fixed tethers are too restraining.

Re: Head and neck restraints

Thanks for the info guys. I have seen used HANS and as Barry said they are close to new prices. Brian good catch on a possible tricky name I will look into if it actually does have the rating. In the meantime I'm leaning towards the Simpson Hybrid Pro Rage, anyone have experience with that?

Head and neck restraints

After 22 months of not racing for various reasons I am getting ready to start again and need a H&N restraint of some sort. I have looked online at what's available with an eye on most reasonable as well as functional. The "lower" priced units all seem to be around the $600 or so price point until I ...

Re: Starter and solenoid location

Hard to write down but heres how I installed mine... Put starter into bellhousing hole but do not place "ear" onto stud so starter can be rotated. Find spot that works without solenoid hitting anything. Make 2 brackets out of approx .125 steel that will go onto stud and over starter ears. Concave ou...

Re: Starter and solenoid location

No picture is showing up on my computer to see your starter but it sounds like a typical vee starter. If your set up is anything like mine the starter will not be able to fit the "normal" way. You may have to make clamps to hold starter in position rather than sitting the starter onto the stud and b...

Re: Clutch cable release arm

I bought a $49,99 torch kit from Lowes that uses MAPP and Oxygen works great for small stuff. Worked perfect to heat the clutch cable arm and easily bend it for me as well as braze small items. If you don't regularly need a full size torch and don't want to sepend much money it's worth it.
