Cockpit Construction

Well its time for the cockpit construction! That means remove everything inside that normal people would want in their vehicles and replace it with unpractical race car technology! Lucky for me, this will be a track car and all the goodies going in will be right at home. Removed the dashboard and dash harness, HVAC system, cluster, steering column, body harness, heater core, radio, pedal assembly and all components off the firewall. This will leave me with a blank canvas to construct the new setup for racing. I’ll be running a Ecumaster ADU7 digital dash to display all my engine … Continue reading Cockpit Construction

3/4″ bore clutch master cylinder adapter plate

This 3/4″ bore master cylinder was needed for the extra fluid capacity to operate the Tilton release bearing properly. Only problem is the angle of the flange differs from the original one. It tilts the reservoir to the left and one of the mounting holes is closer in on the new unit. I needed to make an adapter to mount the new master in the original spot but still have the master straight up. Another challenge was the thickness of the adapter, it had to be sturdy enough which requires thickness but not too thick to push the master too far out of the fire wall. Luckily the new master is 1/2″ longer from flange to pushrod end. I planned on using two 1/4″ 6061 flanges and welding them together, equalling a flange thickness of 1/2″ to make up the longer pushrod length. Drilled and tapped holes for the studs to go into their respective flanges and welded the two together. Overall a simple effective solution to mount a 3/4″ master cylinder into a Supra.

Shorai lithium iron battery tie down

Here we have a simple and effective solution to securing the battery to the vehicle. I wanted something that was light and minimum. 6061 aluminum is once again the choice material. I made the rear bracket slightly higher to allow the top to be clamped down using the bolt. Lined the bracket with high density foam to keep a snug fit. Finished off with a machined hole to allow the charging cable to still be plugged in while mounted. The total weight of the bracket and battery is about 4lbs.. Now that’s weight savings!
