could always try and see if other car manufacturer parts may work. e.g. try and transplant some parts from a Savage into your fusion blade since savages aren't desgined to break very easily lol. you get the idea of using other car parts

Blade maybe all you need is a better grade of ball bearing in that location?

yeah, high heat bearing since that motor produces a tremendous amount of torque by the looks of it.

When i go for the speed record it will be on a large asphelt area or i have a new sub devision close by that is barracaded of bu you can hop in there and the new wide road is more than enough to do the runs, It will be a while as i want the engine totally freed up and all problems sorted out so when i get there i know that the car will handle the job...

So which solution are you going to go with for the bulkhead bearing problem??  a.) Have the bulkhead made out of alloy.....b.) Used better higher grade, high speed bearings.

Ok back on track modded the exhaust rubbers to fit today and got a 45deg slbow for the pipe header so back into it tomorrow..

Wolfs gears are holding up well Western Australia is on big sand pit we always have sand on our roads and the gears are holding up very well only minor pitting.....

very nicly done Blade.

where did you get that 45degree coupler from, i need one because im going to try and route my pipe different. Is that the stock manifold? I need mines shaped just like it but need it to swing out more towards the rear tire, then i might be able to run the 1/8th pipe down the side of the car.

Vortex

The exhaust coupler was a after market brand its a 1/8th it was hard to get it to close around the smaller diameter pipe but a bit of playing and we got it all worked out.... The brand was a ureka pro its a ozzie brand as the guy that runs the shop here just renames gear he gets in.....

Vortex, noticed on towerhobbies site they sell some silicon couplers called  J couplers you might have to do some minor cutting to get it to work just right.

Blade, i seen those couplers somewhere but cant find them for nothing.

Nitro, Will check tower out. i may also need a 90degree coupler because i want to bring the manifold as far back as i can and have the pipe run down the side, dont know how that will work out but will see what I can do.
