Secret Squirrel Speed Werkz
Welcome to the Secret Squirrel Speed Werkz division of Yellow Dog Racing.
Specializing in the design and fabrication of small desert racing vehicles, modificatoin of a Pilot, tinkering with XR-50's, Z-50's and general insanity.
The latest work in progress is the new stadium lite, no name as of yet. This car will be the next generation of the Moskito.
Lighter, Longer, Faster, More Travel, More Interior Room - just a new and better ride.
I'll be posting all my steps as the car comes to life right here in these pages as I get them done, just like I have during my last few projects. The layout of this page will change as I get farther into the project.

Preliminary Front Hub and rotor fitment.
To get my front end suspension designed, I have to have the front hubs and spindles done. So far, I have a prototype hub (pic above) that allowed me to get rotor and caliper placement dialed in and now I have the first attempt of a hub on the CNC machine. Notice that I haven't done the bearing and seal cuts yet? Need to go get them first...
