Tell us more about this build.
Hot, humid air is less dense than cooler, drier air. This can allow a golf ball to fly through the air with greater ease, as there won't be as much resistance on the ball.

Just out of curiosity are you going to create any fiberglass molds for that body?

no i am not going to build a fiberglass body later... next is aluminium.
fiberglass smells like hell and does so for a few weeks. i cant let everybody work in the stink.
i run a metalshop, so fiberglass is not first pick. aluminium is a little softer, so i hope the shaping is a bit easier... welding will be a drama with our tools i think. but we'll try :)

as stated by canterburyfour ... there is a site where everything is mentioned so far... if there is something missing, or you are curious about something... just guestbook pm or forum me on the daartechniek site.

however i understand that a moderator is not so interested in filling-up someone elses forum. the story has become so long and i am sure there is a caracter limit on the post here :)





cheers.
