G'day fellas, I understand this question may have been discussed a thousand times but here we go. The cause of the bow in the NACA hoods, is it from poor quality with production, wrong jig, bad fibre glass or pressure from the hood springs pushing forward onto the hood pins causing the hood to bow or is it heat from the engine bay etc etc etc or does all the above apply? I'd like to know & there may not be one answer, your knowledge & information will be appreciated, thank you.
I can sense your frustration. Any one of those things or a combination could be the cause of the bow but probably not all on the same hood. There are things that you can do to strengthen the hood but that requires surgery to the structure. There are a number of things you can do to address the symptoms . Some hoods never have a problem.

Thanks Bob, your experience & wealth of knowledge is greatly appreciated. Its good to hear there may have been a numbering of contributing factors to why some hoods may have bowed whilst others didn't, cheers.

Hi JD, yes its a government requirement for indicators that's why they're amber. My home state of NSW has the 3rd strictest road rules in the world, cheers.

Any chance of posting a better photo of 2020 by itself?

I have never heard CSX2196 being called "Scary" however Ken did name it "The Turd".

It was reported he was referencing its aerodynamic design.  :)
Ned, you're taking the mickey out of me now aren't you ;), it was named the turd, because it got up & $#!+ on everyone else ;D, page 155, 4th edition ;D

Yes, yes now see it, a car for the latte sipping, cappuccino drinking, gender pandering, virtual signalling self indulgent weiner, give me a break. You would have to be a wankersarus to buy one of those.

One for the Shelby aficionados, what's the CSX number of the prototype Cobra in the workshop being fitted with a 427? Is it 2196 or 3002? I know its Phil, Ken & Pete in the photo however is it Ted Sutton working on the Cobra? Thanks for any information, cheers.

Cobra Ned is I think right that it is the Bill Steele Cobra, but looks like Bondurant's helmet, Steele's helmet is different.

There are a number of photos B&W, and color here, 1964 & 1965, of Steele's Cobra and others, some pics of the old man, and Miles

 R model good site !

I had a quick look, didn't spot any images of Bondurant.

CSX 2000 Series / Shelby Guru's required, who's the driver & CSX number
« on: November 21, 2021, 05:09:05 AM »
One for the Shelby guru's. I'd like to know who the driver was in this Cobra, I was told it was Bob Bondurant? If so, what was the year, the race & the CSX number of the Cobra? Was it a Shelby American racing team Cobra or an independent team car & who took the photo? Thanks for any input, cheers.

Hi Dan, would it be fair to say, no 65 or 66 Shelby GT350 was raced in the SCCA in the USA with webers? However a mustang coupe with webers was raced in Canada through Comstock racing?
It would be fair to say no 65/66 GT350 raced in SCCA in the USA back in the day with webers. They were illegal to run in that sanctioning US bodies venue. Canadian venues allowed them and historical documentation indicates that the Comstock team car used them . Most likely other privateer cars used them in racing the Canadian venues also.

Gotcha & thanks Bob, cheers from Australia.
