  1. 1/8 TDR Nova

    No nothing at all. I expect work to slow down a bit so I may be able to work on the cad model for the engine. As far as the chassis I haven't touched it, still have a paper design to finish up then learn how to do brass as I've never done one, only styrene. Really busy in the summer months. Deck is half done, dog fence at the other house is half done and I have my 1:1 Malibu coming home in a few weeks as well, I'm spread thin. Come on snow right, LOL
  2. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Sorry guys nothing at all. I've been working 15-16 hr days for a couple of weeks. A magnesium plant had a thermal event here in Michigan and it's shut down Ford F-series truck production lines. A lot of dies here right now to repair and get back into production so I have zero personal life at the moment. I'll update when I can.

    LOL, someone messaged me and said it's not correct. Ummmmmm, how could it NOT be correct, it's my own design, LOL!
  4. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Was able to get the MSD mag on it today
  5. 1/8 TDR Nova

    LOL. I have to get the sides of the block down a bit as well the center line of the crank isn't correct. Fun Fun !
  6. 1/8 TDR Nova

    I had some time today, started trying to get the front looking correct. Many thanks to Ron Olsen for letting me get some measurements of a 1/4 scale hemi he 3D printed for me, that along with some images of the internet and I still need to get the distributor mag hole put on it. A lot to do yet but it's starting to look like something.
  7. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Blocked in some heads, header flanges, valve covers......alot to go, thought I'd share. I'll ax the main bearing caps, don't need those
  8. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Pretty slow at work right now so I started an alum engine design. I started with a free engine file I found on-line, then I'm modifying it to my liking, sorta referencing the 481X block as I like it's appearance more than the AJ block. I'm having difficulty finding dimensions for the Hemi front side of the engine I'd like to put on this, any help would be appreciated to save me an hour drive to go measure one out, LOL. When it done it'll be bbc bellhousing pattern, Hemi front, custom sides see attached pictures I have roughed in & hemi style heads. P.S. I'm using UG NX11.0 software if anyone is curious.

    No visible progress. As this will be by first attempt at brass, I have done a little research in hopes I can succeed on it. Round filing seemed to take way too long so I purchased a 5mm carbide cutter and plan on rigging up something either in the manual lathe or my bench mill so notching the tubing is easy. I'll try and find some time in the next week to do at least the floor structure before hanging it up for the summer. I have a lot to do this year outside.

    Nothing to show this weekend I was too busy focusing on my health and family. I still hope to get started on this chassis this month. Thank you for all the nice comments. I've gotten a few messages about the build and it seems some others really like that I have more than myself contributing to the build and then there was one guy that doesn't think that's cool at all but I explained if I didn't include some key others it'd take me ten years to ever get anything done. I took an inventory of the brass I have and it looks like I have everything handy to get it started, just have to find the time now this month as I know when April hits I'll have no time for it.

    My wife found some material for the chutes
  13. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Nothing this week guys. Thanks for all the encouraging comments. The weather is starting to break and I was very busy with family and house things this weekend. My 1:1 64 Malibu build will be coming home from the chassis shop in a month or two so I'm trying to stay on this Nova build in the meantime.
  14. 1/8 TDR Nova

    Started the design of the chassis. Took a while to get this base designed, researched the SFI spec closely and tracing the inside of the body, wheel base, engine position, etc. i think i have it nailed....if not ..well I’ll fix it somehow lol lol
