Rotary Corvette Adapter is FINISHED! It feels so wrong

Thanks to Built 2 Apex for making such a custom piece while we wait for the chassis to be straightened. The suspense is killing me. This adapter will be for sale through B2A (if someone is crazy) as I put it to the test in the Corvette

You're doing great one of a kind things with cars dude. Don't stop thinking outside the box. You should say screw it and design a 5 rotor no turbos first. See what numbers it pulls out. Maybe too much but I'd try if I had a machine shop and money lol

    You should make sure that you remove the clutch start switch I've learned from experience and also other people destroying crankshafts by having a heavy pedal and holding the clutch pedal down in order to have to start the car can put alot of unwanted pressured on the crank while starting the engine !!! Good luck on the rest of the build !!!

    the machinist inside of me just cringed so hard when he bounced the torque tube on that surface plate....those are meant to be a standard for flatness, and not just a table. the code on the machine its using is called G-code, or at least the lines with M, S, T, or G in the lines, the rest of the numbers positive or negative, are co-ordinates for where the tool is going to go based on the workpiece.
