Hey everybody, if you're reading this you've probably seen the video of our little unplanned test of roof strength at the Baja 500...
Since the race we've been hard at work tearing down, inspecting, repairing, and replacing parts to get the car back into shape. I'm only now getting around to posting up some of our progress, I hope to show some of the problems and our solutions.
First off here's a condensed list of the damage incurred as a result of the roll-over:
-Crushed roof (obviously) and doors
-Kinked and displaced beam support tubing (passenger side)
-Engine pushed up into firewall resulting in crushed exhaust primaries, hole in intake end casting, various other things
-Torn out lower engine/trans mounts as well as upper hanger mounts
-Trashed rear bumper (some in front too)
-Tweaked rear trailing arm (sheared sprinplate bolts)
-Broke nose cone OFF trans
On the bright side the car is still basically straight, no pan deformations! And the main cage structure appears intact.
