I thought I`d show you how thermal runaway looks like....... When you mix resin....Polyester or epoxy.... It creates exothermic heat from the chemical reaction..... If you mix it in too hot conditions.....or the resin pools...... Curing too hot..... etc..... You have tremendous heat that will damage your mold. All I did, was after mixing the resin....The leftover was left in the sun....and after 15 minutes.....this is how it looked......It reached 295 deg. F.....


Anyway..... After the the last layer of kevlar.......the weight rose to 769 grams...... Just in line with the expectations....


It grew a little in with....but not much........


So tomorrow..... It`s time to make the mounts.....and that`s that.......


Until then.....
