Re: My MOTA build..thats Atom, backwards...

It's actually about 1,665lbs as my front track wheels/tires are about that much heavier than the ones I use on the scales. The frame is heavy steel as I used 1.5" x.120 wall tubing. Probably not needed but I figured to error on the side of safety. The next one I build will be lighter...;) Picture of...

Re: My MOTA build..thats Atom, backwards...

I was able to finally install the new K-Sport front struts and corner balance the car. I could get the corner weights much closer with the adjustable strut bodies and the ride "feels" better (street test) I'll have it at the track tomorrow to see how it all actually works. I went up a little with sp...

A sign of the times..

Lat week I had a 60s car in for maintenance work. One job requested was to check/adjust the valves. In the owners manual was a very instructive procedure for this operation. This week I had a 2021 vehicle in for maintenance and needed to know the engine oil capacity. I did not find the capacity in t...

Re: My MOTA build..thats Atom, backwards...

To reset the inertia switch you press the spring loaded plunger/button back down. Simple..but not something you can do while belted in. I did bypass it to eliminate any chance of it tripping again. I'm moving to the better K-Sport struts as they offer compression and rebound adjustments plus the str...

Re: My MOTA build..thats Atom, backwards...

Thompson was fun but I could only attend the TT day. It was interesting to take the car to another track and the threat of rain made me actually mount up some "all seasons/snows" in case I needed something with tread. However they were not needed. I was trying a different tire up front for the TT......

Re: Video Thread - Thompson

Ahh..so thats what I was doing wrong. I had 16 laps to "relearn" Thompson before the TT....since 5 years ago...not that simple!

Re: My MOTA build..thats Atom, backwards...

Thanks. Mota has been fun! I am going to install some “better” struts up front with a little heavier springs. Tire wear could not be better.
I’d sure like some more HP though. Ha! :lol: :lol: :sunny:

Re: My MOTA build..thats Atom, backwards...

Dreams really do come true. From just a thought to the podium! The car ran flawlessly all weekend and I ran a respectable 1:48:66 during an official time trial and although no other SU entries..a sanctioned club victory win is a win. MOTA lives. I want to thank everyone who came by to chat and offer...
