"G Fab" fab thread

It's been a long road filled with cars, fabbing and welding. A quick introduction: My name is Aaron Garcia and I got my start welding in 99' at my high school. Then moved on to community college, only to finish a couple of semesters to start working at Max-Rev Motorsports. Later, regretfully, worked for Chassi Tech/Aim industries(enough about that). Picked up by Full-Race for a major portion of my career. And currently welding for AFI Turbo and a place we like to call Half-Race. Well, I'll keep this updated (weekly/bi-weekly) with ideas and cars I work on. So...criticize, compliment, question or just skim through. Either way, enjoy! Oh, thank Indub for the thread name.

I've shown this before but not very detailed... until now. It's a simple sliding pin design with the help of a spring to unlock the pin with a clip to keep the whole thing together. This allows you to freely pull the E brake, without it locking in place. This particular piece is in my DC2.
E brake:

Close up:

Close up unmaskedout position)

Up closelocked in)

Clearance with the pin engaged:

All the materials (spring, pin, collet, C clip) are found at ACE Hardware.

That's funny, it does look like cardboard. That's the actual oem part that locks in place.

I'm not knocking the idea at all, but what is its purpose?

Only thing at least for now i can think of is does it make it harder to mess up while preloading?

Pretty much takes the risk out of accidentally letting the button go on the way down?

That's pretty spot on. I know it's not hard to race without this, but I figured the less you have to think about, maybe the better. I think some use a line lock and just push a button at the sight of green. I chose this because it was inexpensive, fun to figure out and hopefully when I get this on the track, it helps. Does it? I don't know yet.

Nah. That's too much work to market. I can barely get my friends to say "Ahh dude, make me one". I think the only other one is in Locash's drag car, and that one needs to be redone like this one. His was a prototype.

This is Raul's catch can I worked on this past week. From a beginning to end sequence.




Add a couple of these bad boys...

And there you have it.

I also welded in his bungs for his wastegates and boost solenoid
