It is recommended to use the flat head (countersunk) fasteners on aluminum panels and use the domed head fasteners on fiberglass panels or use the self ejecting countersunk fasteners on fiberglass because they have a steel plate that holds the hardware to the fiberglass and acts as a load bearing surface for the fastener to apply pressure against.

The large Dzus fasteners both domed and flat head use a 1.375" center to center spring and mounting hardware. The small fasteners use a 1" center to center spring mount.

Altered body rear hinge mount details.
Altered rear body mount- full up position.jpg (11869 bytes)
The body in full raise position making it easy to service the clutch and trans inside the car.

Altered rear body mount - full down position.jpg (11693 bytes)
The body all the way down in the race position. The body has no inner wheel arches because the wheels are tucked up under the shoulder hoop and run very close to the seat. This allows us to make the rear track as narrow as possible. The advantages are that the tires are out of the air stream making the car more aerodynamic as well at it makes the car handle better because the rear wheels are closer together making it want to steer the car less. Another advantage is that the diff is narrower which means the diff housing and axles all weigh less.

Altered rear body mount.jpg (5791 bytes)

The 31 Chapter 200 page Fuel Injection book is here for  more info on what has been called "the best fuel injection book on this planet". Now only $99.95AUD If you only learn one thing it is worth it
The FI book has been this price for ten years now, my publishing costs continue to rise and soon I will have to raise the price.
Currently all orders are processed at the old price of $99.95 - don't miss out - order now.

I must point out that my printing house (and all the rest of them as well) have raised their prices so when this last printed batch of books are gone... the price goes up. Order now and save.
Can I point out it is less than 50 cents a page!!!


We ship the FI book inside Australia COD Australia Post. When the order arrives at your post office you pay the postman and he sends the money to us. Outside Australia we require a valid credit card to make the charges to.
