S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here? Build Thread

They are in Australia so it’s not like I can call them up….plus I know what they’ll say…
You may be able to call them for free.


https://globfone.com/call-phone/ once you select the country copy paste the number after the 61 419882937

I tried and went to voicemail. 7:45AM Eastern standard time. 9:45 PM at the number. California is 3 hrs behind for me in the summer which puts you at 4:45AM. I'm thinking if you move it 12 hours back or ahead to 4:45 PM you will catch them at 9:45AM. It's probably going to show up as a spam call on their side. If there is no pick up I would leave a voicemail with an exact time that you will call back.

There is another way also ----- I have a niece that is from Brazil that calls her mother via WhatsApp for free all of the time. If the S1 number is a mobile and they have WhatsApp and you call via WhatsApp it will ring on their side.

Why not, just for fun, call MGW and see if they will build or modify what you have, or at least get there opinion. Speaking of which, have you called Big John yet?
Yes I talked to him Monday.

Congrats on your win! Since you had a PB of 1:35:8 is it safe to assume the Cortex rear sway bar helped (or at least didn't hurt)?

I tried an 18mm bar late last year and it was terrible, made the car very skittish to drive so I have been sitting on this cortex bar waiting for a good opportunity to try it. Friday is a test day at laguna and Sat/Sunday is racing so we’ll see if I like this setup soon enough.

Well my alternator blew up so I only got one quick spin on test day. My next spin was going to be qualifying on Saturday and I didn’t t want to take any chances so I pulled the pin and went with the setup that I know. I’ll try it again when I have some practice laps.

I can confirm that phone number you have listed is a mobile # and it will show up that you are calling from USA and it could also flag it as spam. I definitely dont answer spam call and also block the numbers all the time.
They are based in Brisbane which is in a Queensland state, same state that im at and we do not have daylight savings time or summer time like the rest of the Australia. So at the time of this post it is 07:10 on Sunday morning 31 August, hope that helps with your time and day conversion. Let me know if i can help any more locally.

Well with the current gas prices and the way they are rising the best method of transport would be this. ;)

New tire rack going together for my trailer. (Holds 8-335’s and a pair of quick jacks)TIG welded and blended smooth. I’ve been needing this for a while now, finally getting around to building it.

I'd quit now but I'd starve to death.

Nice! I need to create something similar. I had the area where I plan to mount reinforced so it can handle the load - but of course the manufacturer refused to mount anything due to liability. How do you plan to mount on the wall of your trailer?

I have a limited edition "Titan triple axel" that was only made for a few years around 2005, so the interior is different than other TPD's. Its all smooth FRP, no tubing skeleton, so the sides are thicker.
I will bolt through the FRP like I have done with other things I've mounted.....you'll see what happens when it happens....and if it sucks, you'll know what not to do. LOL.

That'll work. I'll definitely learn from you :)
