Awesome! I draw all my parts up in AutoCAD before and then print them to scale, cut them out and use them as a template to fabricate the parts.
Exactly what I do! ;D Been using CAD for about 20 years.
Just tried to drill a hole through the side of the carbon fiber for the axle, but the drill bit is wandering. Going to have to order a better drill bit. Looking on McMastercarr.
You will have a hard time drilling carbon fiber only way I have ever got a clean straight hole is grinding with milling machine. Easier to laminate an aluminum or wood area in the carbon fiber then drill.
A unique combination of material! What is the thickness of aluminum/metal (.032", .040", 063") wheel attachment for axles?
It started as 1/8" thick aluminum plate and then I used my drill press, band saw & belt sander to do all the drilling & shaping and then I polished it by hand. I will start working on these cars again in a month or so.... Too many builds not enough time!!!
