    How did you keep the rim on the CNC Mill table? Some sort of jig on the inside??

    It’s funny. They added the rx-7 on GTA Online. And I was using this video as reference to make mine like Robs. And those rims on GTA overlap with the rear calipers, so they would need shaving on the rx-7 on the game too 😂

    More Z+ offset between moves , won't hit your part as it will be above it. I dry run my programs first above the part just to make sure. Looks great though. Love the content.

    Use the "Graphics" function to view the toolpaths before machining. Also with a piece that big, in a mill that small, might wanna jog the table fully to the right (X minus) before you change tools.

    Is there not a drag strip you can rent for an afternoon or something so you can be alone and do what you want without being so stressed from that aspect of it? Also less likely to smack into another driver or be smacked into. Then once you get the car a bit dialed and figure out how to get it from a->b, then take it to a legitimate track. Just seems so rushed/terrifying when it doesn't need to be... the car is terrifying enough on it's own!

    Use G98 to return to previous z height before moving to the next hole, i only ever use G99 (return to 'R' plane) when drilling a top surface with no walls or edges. Much safer especially when you have work rims in there!

  • StefanTomalik

    Idk why I thought you were going to drill by hand lol

  • ZillaFullBoost

    You also didn’t do a good burnout the second run, but yea it has to be dialed in right for the current surface you’re on. She sounds sick man 💪🏽

    "Poor-man's beadlock." Sir. Poor men do *not* own CNC routers to _precisely_ mill their own brand new Weld wheels and subsequently lock the beads of their brand new Mickey Thompson's into them. Respectfully, of course.

    Good reason to always prove the program up and away from the part or no part at all. CNC is full of surprises. Keep up the good work.

    I have some advice that could probably help you; 1. Install some 6-axis IMUs in your vehicle. One in each corner, one close to your car's center of mass, and one more close to the rear axle. 2. Install a reaction wheel somewhere in the car, preferably close to the center of mass. A rotary encoder could help out for determining its exact position as well. 3. Traction Control, but set up to only engage if you're performing a dangerous wheelie. All three of these things together could make things a lot safer for yourself and for your car. Stay safe out there!

    8.35 at 97 or 7.35 at 97? The 7.35 lines up more with the mph but that 60’ wasnt great so who knows. 1/8th mile stuff is fun. Everyone thinks drag racing is so easy until they do it.

    Rob has done a 10yr long build in reverse Quit trying to re-engineer what has already been proven too work! Each time you put your science into something it eventually goes back to how it was! Your own headlocks! You picking the weights off that are specific to the location they are in! Also notice how they are properly and evenly spaced the way you fucking stick glued the weights wherever you feel is ok! Slow down on the adderall again bro! Slip the slipper It’s clear you don’t watch any popular youtubers like Cleetus, kyle(boostedboiz) etc to learn the real ins and outs and quit watching just the install video! God damn you were greener then Cleetus provista freedom factory gtass

  • Hayden Royer

    Rob please learn to write code! Because their are different codings to cut in different patterns from right to left left to right make a circle etc! The machine naturally will do its best cutting at that speed that it’s aware of under the sorta preprogrammed settings! You just drilled em! Not threaded

    I have no idea about any of this but logically thinking why the hell do you need working lights on a completely lit up drag strip? & also is it not extremely dangerous to send a high bhp rwd car down a drag strip with cold tyres? Maybe I'm being a dumbass but both those things seem ridiculous to me..

  • Edgar Ramos

    Have the tire shop balance your wheels on it inside with sticky weights but put them as close to the face edge as possible. Shouldn't need weights if your just going to use them for drag racing.

  • nick4819

    Watching these people load a car on a trailer and then attempt to get it off.....I would be scared as fuck to run beside this man on the track lol they made such a simple task so difficult. :P

  • Navymech62

    With all of the money you have wasted on uhaul trailers you could have paid for your own by now. And you could get a better one that doesn't damage your bumpers in the loading process. C'MON DUDE!

    Don't bead-locks usually have a separate ring that sandwiches the bead as opposed to screwing into the bead?

  • kellygnsd

    Do you have a boost by gear target or are you just shooting for a target WG position? Seem like you tuning strategy is ass backwards. Start with a fixed pressure them add where you can instead of your subtractive tuning

    Rob, I don't want to be negative or troll you but you need to have the car professionally tuned and take some drag racing courses because our driving and shifting is quite dangerous and would never want to see you get hurt. Also, prep your car better before track testing & tune and never endanger other racers for lack of your on safety.

    • Rob Dahm

      I can guarantee no one can “professionally” tune this setup. I’ve been told that before on the 4 rotor and 3 different professionals tuned it worse than me. We ended up going back to my tune to make the big power and race. No one has experience tuning the egate on a rotary. So that would oddly make me the most experienced tuner with rotary electronic wastegates. Im bug busting issues with it. It’s not a traditional situation or me being stubborn. It’s legit new technology and I’m willing to help others grow too. The wastegate has a .5 second delay and the early software causes a horrible feedback loop. We have some things in development to make it behave more predictably. But that feedback loop causes a 140 whp swing back and forth as the car accelerates and as you can guess either a loss of traction or under powered. On the same run. It’s literally the ideal use of test and tune. I can not focus on actually racing or driving it fully until electronic wastegates have some more development. The rest of your comment I agree with you. But someone has to take the risk and test new tech. I get that it makes you think I can’t drive or tune but I would have been into a wall or had a blown engine by now if either of those things had any truth to them. I do not claim to be a drag racer. But that’s yet again why I’m at a test and tune with an experimental setup. I do appreciate your concern for my safety and taking the time to comment.
