Preparing for next season?

Anyone pre-planning their next season's mods or events?

Also........shameless plug for my stuff in my SIG for sale.

Well, since we havent found another site locally for autocross (was an old military airfield but is now a hurricane debris site) I have been planning on attending a few open track events next year. A tire trailer and tow hitch are on the mod list. Also brake ducting, possibly torque arm w/ rear coil-overs, and some engine mods (intake, rockers, and injectors). The first thing on the list is a new MC and brake booster (as mentioned in my other thread).

I've been contemplating finishing up my 347 and dropping it in. But, the tired old 5.0 is just still running so damned good! Also, I just don't want the hassle of sorting out all the tuning issues that go along with a new engine combination.

Brake ducts for the 99 and thats about it for that car.

Start stripping the interior out of my 87 notch, manaul trans swap, IRS swap, and a bunch of crap from MM. If I even get that far this winter.

Since our last event this year is 12/11 and the first event next year is 1/15, we don't exactly have an "off" season.

In any event, I'll either get around to installing the new front hubs, rack limiters, longer studs, spacers, 10 1/2" wheels and 315's all 'round and get a Torsen, or maybe just buy a new Miata.

-Building a 377ci engine.
-Switching back to manual transmission
-Re-do rear suspension chassis side pickups for more adjustability.

contemplating panhard bar and control arms or a t-arm setup for next year.. race rubber
oh yeah and BRAKES!!!!

my mind's also been toying with the idea of making a front splitter for the car, something along the lines of the 2000 r.
fresh paint would be nice too.

problem is i also have to get the drag truck ready for next seaon as well.. need to do some serious tuning this winter. need time and money.. you all know how that goes..

I run SM, and was thinking:
Move engine rearward 2".
Carbon fiber driveshaft.
Kevlar bellhousing to replace the heavy steel SFI piece.
Build super silly 12 square foot dual element rear wing.
Build absurd front spoiler / splitter for max downforce.
Get a super high torque starter so I don't have to bump start the car for the 3rd & 4th runs.
Tune the engine & raise rev limiter- still running a chip for a 302, but have a 349.
Install lightweight passenger seat.
Rebuild t-loc.
Change oil.
Wash car.

But with a baby on the way, if I get half of those done it'll be a good winter. Don't bet on the car wash.

Well our season just came to an end yesterday so I'm makin a list and checkin it twice. We won't really have an off season this year if our usual site isn't to messed up by the cotton mill.

Somewhere near the top of my list is an Evolution Driving school. LOL

Other than that I think I'll play with suspension some more and try to get a little closer to the EVO's and STI's. I managed a come from behind attack to win the champeenship in SM for our region but at larger events and tighter courses those things spank me pretty good. Other than the embarrasing attempt at GIR with some rock hard goodyears on the rear I seem to be able to get to 3rd or 4th against the better driven jap stuff. Local I've won 5 out of 7 events. I missed 4 events this year and 1 got canceled.

I'm thinking about some UPR double adjustable UCR's with spherical bearings at both ends.
I want to make some LCA's that are delrin bushed at the chassis end and spherical bearings at the axle end.
I think this setup would pretty much eliminate all bind while still helping the old homemade watts link with lateral control.
I need to stiffen the cross bar on my watts link which will just involve pulling it off and welding a piece across the bottom.
After the bind is gone I think I'll play with stiffer springs and less swaybar to see how that works.
I need to reshim the old traction lock again. I think I'll try the alternate stacking method and put the s spring back in.

Still checking the list after that.

Looks like I get to do a motor AND a trans this winter. Fancy-pants suspension stuff will have to wait for another season. Oh well. I'll get to embarass more people with a car that much further into obsolescence.

I hve been trying to get the car back on the road for the last month.

I recently performed what the V6 mustang community calls a "Split port swap". Swapping ported and polished 99 mustang heads and intakes on to my 95 block. Good for 40 hp unported and will mean a lot more to my Vortech force fed 3.8.

also added a smaller blower pulley and a snow performance kit,as well as urathane bushings all around and relocated the battery to the trunk.

hopefully i can have it all tuned and ready by before the holidays.

after that its

Racing seats/roll bar/harness/ lca's/ 5speed swap/ Saleen body kit and paint....

You're not alone in the SPS world. I've done it as well on my old car, I have respect for anyone else who can successfully complete that conversion, there's a lot of custom work to be done for it.

I thought you couldn't eliminate bind while retaining the stock control arm configuration?

I can't figure how it could bind with this setup but I might be FOS too. LOL If I get around to trying it I'll set it up with no springs and put the rear end on a pivot jack to check it out.

One of the outtakes from the The net-famous "Ehren's Bind Study" from Maximum Motorsports found little or no bind with sphericals in every location, but as MM's Jack Hidley later pointed out, to paraphrase, "that doesn't mean it operated in an acceptable fashion".

If I'm not mistaken, the uppers must change effective length as the axle moves, and if they don't, it probably cause some interesting pinion angle and possibly roll steer. I don't have a model in front of me so maybe I'm the one that's FOS but I wouldn't do what you're planning on doing.

Here's the study i was referring to:

While bind is only one of many parameters determining the handling characteristics of a suspension system, it is useful information, and has been a subject of great debate on these message boards. As part of the research we did in developing our rear suspension system, MM has actually done quite a bit of roll-bind testing. I can offer some hard numbers for everyone to consider. I will define β€˜bind’ to be any resistance to wheel movement in a roll situation that is not from the spring or sway bar.

Let me say that this information is not intended to be negative toward any particular system, but should be used to gain understanding of the way cars with different setups feel/handle. This information can help everyone to optimize whatever setup they may have.

Of the tests we have done, following are the tests relating to the rear suspension systems most often discussed. All tests are with the sway bar disconnected, cycling one wheel through 3” bump/droop as if in a roll situation. The results are organized in order from least bind to the most bind.

1) 4 Link - LCA with spherical bearings or rod ends at both ends / Stock UCA’s
6lb/in Linear
This shows the stock upper arms introduce 6 lb/in of wheel rate.

2) 4 Link – MM LCA 3 piece poly, spherical bearing / Stock UCAs
9lb/in Linear
This shows an additional 3 lb/in resistance from our 3 piece urethane compared to a rod end.

3) MMTA/PB – LCA with spherical bearings or rod ends at both ends
10lb/in Linear
Here we removes the 6lb/in from the UCAs, but adds 10lb/in due to lateral deflection of the TA during roll.

4) 4 Link – Stock LCA / Stock UCAs
11lb/in Linear
This shows that the stock LCA adds 5 lb/in of wheel rate, which is actually more than our LCA of case 2.

5) MMTA/PB – MM LCA 3 piece poly, spherical bearing
13lb/in Linear
Again illustrating an additional 3lb/in additional resistance of our 3 piece urethane compared to the rod ends in case 3.

6) 4 Link – LCA with 3 Piece Urethane at both ends / Stock UCAs
26lb/in Linear
Case 6 shows that the 3 piece poly (or any LCA) works best with a spherical bearing at one end. 17lb/in is added over case 2. Note that the effect of adding a 3 piece urethane at only one end adds 3lb/in. Add it at BOTH ends and the increase is 17lb/in… NOT 6 lb/in as one might expect.

7) 4 Link - LCA with delrin, spherical bearing / Stock UCAs
30lb/in Linear
This shows that delrin does not allow necessary angular deflection resulting in an additional 21lb/in over case 2.

8) 4 Link With PB - Stock LCA / Stock UCA
In the first 1” travel 47lb/in
Between 2-3” of travel 30lb/in Decreasing Rate
In case 8 & 9 the Panhard bar defining a new lower roll center is forcing control arms to travel a new path of higher resistance.

9) 4 Link With PB – MM LCA / Stock UCA
In the first 1” travel 50lb/in
Between 2-3” of travel 30lb/in Decreasing Rate

10) 4 Link – Stock LCA / UCA with rod end at chassis, stock rubber at axle
In the first 1” travel 63lb/in
Between 1-2” travel 39lb/in
Between 2-3” travel 20lb/in Decreasing Rate
Case 10 represents trying to locate the axle with a stiffer bushing configuration on the upper control arms. Since the upper arms need to have an effective length change, the rod end in this case actually creates MORE bind.

11) 4 Link – LCA with urethane at both ends / Stock UCA’s
67lb/in Linear
Case 11 is similar to case 6, but shows that a standard poly/poly control arm does not allow much angular change.

Keep in mind that the above information is with no cornering force on the axle. Therefore, there is a huge gap in this information if you are trying to correlate this data to how these systems would feel in use. I would say that the Torque-arm in case 3 & 5 outperforms any other case shown, although it does not have the least amount of bind in this test. We have begun to build a fixture that loads the axle laterally, as if in a corner, to THEN see how the bind behaves. Any system with a Panhard bar should have no significant increase in bind over what is already shown here. This predictability that a PB provides is why we recommend it on a 4 link (with the correct control arms) for people on a budget, or Solo II Street Prepared cars (not allowed to remove uppers). True, you are inducing bind in this situation, but that bind should not significantly change as you load the suspension laterally. When driving the car, the effective added spring rate (from bind) balances well with the new lower RC, and the improved stability and predictability. YES this is a compromise, but I feel it beats trying to locate the axle laterally with stiffer bushings. Obviously, if the pocket book or rulebook permits, the best thing to do is add a Torque-arm and remove the upper control arms. All this binding is also why you are able to add at least 50lb/in wheel rate to the rear when you add a Torque-Arm and remove the UCAs.

Thanks MFE. That is an interesting read but I don't see the configuration I am considering.

No manufacturer seems to make a lower in the style I want to try (bushed chassis end/spherical axle end). There must be a reason I haven't thought of but it could just be nobody has tried it yet.

My problem is I always want to try something I can't buy so I have to make part of it. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. What can I say, I'm in the research business.

Next season: safety

After doing a buck thirty down the back straight at mid-Ohio, I realized a 6 point roll bar and harness was in order. A fire extinguisher is also on the list. No more open track for me until I have a roll bar. Just too dangerous without one.

particularly non-stock 99 Cobra w/brand C motor...

Finished the ABS install today, but of course it doesn't work. No time to troubleshoot (the car and I are leaving Hawaii on Monday), so finding and fixing the issue will have to wait until the car is shipped to the East Coast in 5 or 6 weeks.
