Re: The Jaguar IRS picture thread

Oh well. High speed cameras and all would be super trick but without a close buddy at Mythbusters or Top Gun that's not happening either. Maybe in 20 or 30 more years that technology will trickle down to us but by then I won't care anyway.

And does it really even matter? TR cured his wheel hop. I've never had a problem with it. Might as well just keep on doing things the same way.

All ya need is a laptop a cheap web cam and some duct tape. Saw the video from a guy who did this to see what was happening with spring wrap and engine/tranny motion.

Re: The Jaguar IRS picture thread

So, from what I can tell from what I could see of those videos we're not quite on the same page. What you're calling wheel hop seems to be what I'd just call a little bounce or maybe uneven traction, or maybe squat. When I think of wheel hop I'm thinking of pretty violent excursions, maybe even with the tire leaving the pavement. Hop, to me implies a rather massive loss of traction. But what I saw in those clips, good traction was still there, just sometimes a little better. I understand that it could hurt you in a drag race but it seems like a much smaller issue to deal with, and probably has more to do with planting the tires. Heck, that one clip showed definite squat of several inches and there's no way to keep the traction even with that going on.

Re: The Jaguar IRS picture thread

Jim,
I think every case may be different. His was not all that violent. Just some chassis cam IRS vids I found. I also think some better or other angles would be helpful.

Ralphy,
Thanks for all the videos you've been posting. Great info and entertainment.

Regarding the one above that I'm quoting, I did check out that skookum aluminum LCA. It appears to me, they have a "radius arm" extending straight forward from the outer area of that LCA. That's a design to bind wouldn't you say?

6 speed,
Your appreciation is greatly appreciated and thank you. As far as the radius rod. Maybe others can answer better than me. But I'm thinking it would need pliable bushings.

Rigid mount. That'll be a little noisy.

Re: The Jaguar IRS picture thread

I've heard that rigid mounts are not noisy.  Most people that mount their differential use hard polyurethane bushings that are not the greatest vibration isolators, anyway.  Either way, combined with the sound of a V8 through dual exhaust it will be a symphony.

These are some pics of a Concours West Industries, CWI design that they used to make. All based of the Jaguar the aluminum center fits a Ford 9". The quick change is for looks only. He's also manufactured aluminum LCA's.

Am I correct in assuming the two links in the Watts negate each other for the most part? Talking about the picture above.

Re: The Jaguar IRS picture thread

Here's a few shots i took this weekend at the NSRA show at Cal Expo this weekend. I kinda rushed through the show and wish I would have taken more photos. My phone memory is full so only took these.

Re: The Jaguar IRS picture thread

Here's the Jag IRS I've finished narrowing. It is narrowed by 6" to fit under a Rover P6. The wheel PCD has also been changed to match the Rover.
Some points of interest are;
I removed the damper mounts from the lower control arms when narrowing the LCA and added a damper mount as far out as possible.
I made the tie arms as long as possible.

For more photos please look at my Blog: http://p6v8.wordpress.com/2012/09/20/building-the-narrowed-jag-irs/
What is a Rover P6, well it was where the 'British V8' was first used. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rover_P6
The Rover used a DeDion suspension:
http://p6v8.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/dscf3930.jpg

The reason for fitting a Jag IRS is the standard Rover Diff is an open (non-LSD) diff and some of the internals are at their limits of strength. So to tune the engine we needed to use a stronger diff. Another point is that a racing Rover P6 in the 70's used a Jaguar IRS.

Thanks for the info contained in this forum, it helped a lot.
Gavin.
