Got some of the latest parts to start building my car for the 2011 season.
First the magnesium two-speed bulkheads.
These make the car even lighter and raise the rear ARB assembly so the small clips on the outside aren't needed anymore.
They come with delrin bearing inserts and new bearings.
Then we have the new aluminum downstop brackets. Some have experienced inregular downstop settings caused by pitting on the wishbone's downstop brackets, especially with the soft plastics.
To have perfect downstop settings all the time Capricorn came up with these aluminum brackets. They feature a steel insert where they hit the downstop screw.
The flanged uniballs prevent the link to pop off during a hard crash.
To add weight to the very light car Capricorn has a very heavy motormount.
It's made out of beryllium which is a very heavy and hard material. With this mount you won't strip the threads as with the brass mounts made by other companies. It also moves the entire engine 0.5mm towards the left for better balancing.
Updated chassis which now features mounting holes for balancing weights between the battery and the exhaust. It also has a clutch preload nut adjusting hole which makes adjusting the clutch a lot easier with the engine still in the car.
Still some building to do, basically waiting on some red aluminium screws and washers I've ordered. I'm also redoing all the electronics with lightweight 26 or 32AWG mil. spec wiring.
