Default Its Here! Whiplash G1-G2 Conversion build thread


The wait is over, I have my G2 conversion kit in the shop! I will document my build for you guys. I plan to start after turkey day - my other gasser is on the bench waiting for a new pinion from Australia, need to get that one flying before I start tearing down the Whiplash.

Some photos to wet your appetite

This is what you get in the box - all new main transmission parts, clutch, mainshaft and TT assembly, along with a template to modify your G1 frames.

The template is nicely CNC'd from heavy (edit) stainless steel plate.

Instructions are included but the only thing they dont cover is drilling the frame using the template. That process is self explanatory but the one part I'm sure about is hole sizes for drilling. I might have to buy a set of metric drill bits to get this correct.
