Translation From Japanese - Any Able To ?

Recommended Posts

On the DuD's page, befriend Barry Mudberry, tell him I told you.

He's in Kyoto with his very highly knwn, in Japan, opera singing wife.

He'll be able to get it done, r clse to it!

Bear in mnd, the literal translation can be a touch convoluted in synax!

Ta, will give it a go.

 

Normally I use google translate to get near enough, but this lot of text is from a book.

 

I'm hoping literal translation shouldn't be too hard to figure out, its details of a Nissan spaceframe chassis.

That's the one !

 

I have a few books on the R38x series cars, all in Japanese, one of which contains a copy of what looks to be the original plan for the chassis, along with the Japanese text caption I posted. From reading between the lines, it seems to be a materials list or similar (ie I can see 38.1x1.2,   25.4x0.9,   etc and a reference to a JIS standard in the text). I can also see "BT8" in there. which is the original Brabham chassis that Prince used as the basis of the first R380.

 

I'm happy to just look at the pictures in my books, and can get quite a lot of info from the tables of specifications they contain, just curious what the caption to the blueprint says.

Second row on the right looks to be about the grade of structural steel tubing used in the chassis (STKM 45 & STKM 13C)

The position of the radius rod attachment points of the rear wheel, it can be confirmed in the front and rear of the cowling support for the auxiliary frame (the part that is overhanging the triangle back and forth in a side view), I think that you can look interesting in comparison with the actual vehicle of page 36-51 .
