Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)



DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

We will not be asking you for donations or any kind of monetary payments. We will be asking for help in terms moderators and encouraging you to spread the word and add to our membership.

A message board & forum for automotive builders, fabricators and customizers who think outside the box.

    THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF THIS SITE

    While this site contains pages of interest to the road racer and oval track racer, the primary focus is on the safety and performance problems inherent with the car most commonly in competition at the world's dragstrips: A rear wheel drive vehicle with a beam rear axle.

    These problems arise from the the manner in which the driveshaft reaction torque is distributed and/or canceled by the suspension geometry. This determines the relative loadings of both the front and rear tires, and, consequently, the ultimate safety and performance of the car.

    As a novice welder from what I understand TIG and MIG and Plasma need about the same power source. Modulated DC power.

    Why not throw an EDM head into the mix? An EDM head would require a DI bottle and a pump, and a spiffy head to go with it, but you could burn through a broken bolt or tap like butter.
