View Full Version : Professional pictures taken at our shop

Hello all,

A local hobby guy/ pro came out for us and shot a bunch of pictures of the Formula cars and some of us. His name is Roger Cox and his website for those who are interested is rogpics.com. He does a lot of local car shows and body building events.

The pictures of the weldor are me, and I am in the black Adidas jacket in others.

Very cool. I always dig shop pics, especially good ones!! The car looks like a lot of fun!

The car with all 4 wheels on has a 440 cc single cylinder, whereas the one on stands has a Suzuki LTR 450 cc single.

45 hp, they weigh 400 lbs. We just took them out to Andersen Race Park two weeks ago and the one on stands was pulling 1.7-1.8 g's in the corners. The car was geared for 120 mph that weekend.

The two races for the new car we are building is at Virginia International Raceway and Michigan International Speedway this year in the summer

Go Bulls!!!

Nice pic's. That hose to the remote res, (on the front damper) is real tight, I'd let that banjo move down a bit. By the way what dampers are you running. I used to be the importer for Risse racing in to the UK, and all the teams in the know liked to run them over here

The car on the ground uses Ohlins dampers, whereas the car on stands uses the Cane Creek dampers (still Ohlins)

Good call on the damper reservoir by the way, I will rotate it down tonight

thats sick..

haha.. i've got a LT-r 450 motor on my stand right now i've totally rebuilt.

those motors have 3 oil pumps..

when the main one goes, alot of bad things happen.

getting cammed up, new athena piston and bore, hot rods crank and rod assembly and a 2 brothers juice box.. should be nasty. (in addition to another $1800 in misc parts to replace what had turned into filings and shavings from running out of oil. .the crank, piston and rod are all weled together.. )

definitely sick.. you've got a badazz job bro.

i'd LOVE to see those things with a 600 or 1000 motor.

haha.. get the 09 R1 crossplane motor.. :D wow.

Shox Dr,

you have a PM.

And whitehendrix,

The racing is a lifestyle that takes up 50hrs + a week, plus a part time job 20 hrs and graduate school, but I dont actually get paid to do this at all. We have a dedicated group of about 10 guys that this is all we do. I have more pictures of the other cars that we build here: http://weldingweb.com/showthread.php?t=22647
