McSorley.net is now "sevenesque.com"

Can you believe that it has been six years?! I'll bet you thought I gave up on my Locost build for good?

Rumor has it that I sold my incomplete project and disappeared off into the sunset. Well I'm here to dispell that myth... and to let everyone know that I'm "back in the game." Not only have I been making progress on the front suspension, I've also revamped my website and set up a cool email newsletter tool.  I have some other tricks up my sleeve that will be revealed over time.  Be sure to join my email list to learn about changes to this new website as they happen.

Technology has come a long way since I first started my project in 2001; now I can update my website with photos and even videos directly from my cell phone!  (I'm not sure why I want to... but it's pretty cool that I can!)  It will also be easier to keep in touch, share mutual interests, provide quality information, and continue to improve upon chassis plans like the McSorley 442.  Please post comments to this site and join me in celebrating the journey!

Just bought Wifey a MiniCooper S, must build myself a Locost now. Glad to see the suspension upgrades.

April 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMike Shaw

Glad to see you are back in the game. What could be more super than actually building one?

April 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterFred Rawls

Its very nice to see the updated version, the suspension is a great addition, my son and I have been studying your site in detail admist all the lawlessness, roits and blasts here in Peshawar Pakistan

Glad to see you are back at it.

Hey Jim,
Welcome back. My build was on hold too until my retirement last yer.
I am still working on the 2+2 and have the fully adjustable mustang 2 suspension installed.
Let me know if you would like some pictures.
Thanks for all your help!

Dude, thanks for all your plans, good to see you back at it.

April 27, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHank

Good morning Jim,
It's been a few years since we met at your house and I have been assembling the "stuff" to build my attempt at a locost. I am still trying to find an acceptable donor...thinking about a Suzuki AWD (wrecked, of course) as all the Miata's here get snapped up immediately at astronomical prices. Your designs and plans are terriffic in their clarity and usefulness and I 'm happy to see that you've taken on the front suspension design.
Hope all's well with your family.
Chris on St. John, USVI.

Good to see you are back with a new site. Like you, I also have a "works in progress" losost which has been delayed far too long. See ya!

September 26, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGustavo

Jim, just discovered your site. Great resource. Thank you so much for making this available. I am currently building a hybrid Super7 having built 5 other cars, (3 Lamborghini Diablos) and appreciate the detail in your posts. Just used your source to order the coil overs.
Working on front suspension and your videos have been invaluable. Wish I had found you sooner. Again, thanks for great site.

I have recently aquired a Locost 7 based loosely on the mcsorley 442 plans. Unfortunately the builder was not very good, and I willl have to change a few things before I can finish the car. It is essentially a rolling chassis using a late 80's Toyota Celica as the doner.
He has hacked up the full injection manifold and made an adapter to use a small unknown carbeuretor on the car. The electronic ignition has also been basterdized and somehow converted back to points and condensor. Not a good plan.
The steering rack has been mounted below the space frame, so the tie rod ends have to work at an angle of almost 40 degrees from horizontal when the rack is close to full travel, and is always over 30 degrees. I think bump steer might be a consideration with these settings.
So, I have removed the rack and will see how I can remount it inside the frame, and keep the tie rods close to level as possible.
To achieve this I may have to use bolts and Heim Joints as tie rod ends as it looks like the only way I can clear the lower control arm will be to connect to the top of the steering knuckle.
In any event, I am looking forward to finishing this car and enjoying it. If all goes well, I am planning to do another from scratch, hopefully using a Honda s2000 for the donor.
Now that should make a hot 7.

I think if you keep it up your writings you mayby get more visitors on your blog.
The posts are good but not much blog-posts
