Nothing like another gearhead on Aeroscale. Which F1 team does your son work for?
Now that's a dream job for someone like me. Of course the only position I'd be qualified for is general maintenance
I might be qualified if their F 1 cars were powered by 500 cc long stroke singles with built up crankshafts spinning cast iron flywheels - all balanced using knife edges and a postal scale - and putting out 25 hp at the crank and whole lot less by the time it got to the ground via primary drive / clutch / gearbox / rear wheel.
Somehow I think their technology is a little more advanced than that - 😄
Ha - Richard
Now that's impressive balancing by hand. Even back in the late 60's I sent my cranks out for balancing to Port Washington automotive.
