Aussie Invader 5R moves closer to being on wheels
The Aussie Invader Team are excited to announce the professional support and sponsorship offered to our team via Garlock Sealing Technologies. This premier global company has offered to produce a 100 x 150 x 12 mm double lip PS seal combination that will keep the desert dust from entering our SKF angular contact wheel bearings. These seals will also keep our bearing oil lubricant contained and contaminant free within our wheel hub.
These oil seals are a major windfall for such a specialist application like ours and we are extremely thankful to the team at Garlock Sealing Technologies in Perth for sharing their knowledge and support with us. These seals are very high quality and Rosco said ”It will be a great comfort at 1000 mph to know we have the best products in the world today being used in our car”.
Thanks must go to John McAlpine and Leon Jamieson for all of their effort and dedicated research into getting the right seals for such an extreme application, not to mention their support in sponsoring the 8 seals required.
