Got one already and giving it a workout :lol::smthumbup for the spark
Now you have some little terminals to crimp you might like to invest in one of these
1100 kg with the power and response should make for a serious tool donald.Just finished bolting in the dash and interior, doors etc. Had her up to temp and all seems good. Off to the dyno tomorrow eve for mapping.
Weighed her as well tonight. Under 1100kg, result!
No flux capacitor in tiddles. Different time travel technique :crackup:You are the mlr's answer to doc emmet brown, :smthumbup
1000Hp per ton is the goal. [/QUOTE said:You'd better down to NASA Donald for some launch and take-off training
Probably not. I spend too much doing the Scottish Championship as it is, any southern events depend on sponsors and available funds. It's also not very fast believe it or not - but it gets there insanely quickly :lol:any plans to enter ten of the best?
Shame, would love to see her south of the border, as you say maybe Harewood later this season, good, its 10 mins from my house:smthumbupProbably not.

Are you running at Doune this weekend Donald? Might take a run up for a nosey on the Saturday.Doune is certainly going to be interesting if it stays dry :naughty:
Unsure, we had some issues on the dyno so i don't know if they can be resolved in time. I'll be there either with Tiddles or driving an Integra DC2 as i've been offered a double-drive. I may also just be there as a p155-head and go for the party! All unknowns :lol:Are you running at Doune this weekend Donald? Might take a run up for a nosey on the Saturday.
Weight removal is so easy these days.........When I was a lad the bags of cement were 50kg (well 112lbs if I'm honest) :lol:The new pre-preg floor will take another 20-25kg off later in the year - another bag of cement :lol:
pics!!!well she's just about there. A last push tonight got the floor back on, harness fitted, the voltage regulator in the alternator went faulty so it's replaced. One of the dyno issues was the bodge on the power steering pump pulley from last year finally failed so a new one was made yesterday and sent up. Many thanks to alan young engineering for superb turnaround and quality again. He certainly knows his pulleys!
The interior is almost finished and although the bodywork isn't wrapped, the carbon comes up great with a wax. There's no time to wrap it so this event she'll be bare except for a few sponsor logos. Still a few jobs to do and the first test drive tomorrow to make sure everything is as it should be. We had a misfire on the dyno that we believe is being caused by interference in the loom so i stripped the loom again and stripped some coaxial cable to pull the copper shield then covered some of the sensor wires and grounded them to the ecu. Until i drive her tomorrow i don't know if that has been sorted. Fingers crossed! If it's not cured i'll use the weekend to data log some channels at high frequency and analyse to see if i can find what's causing it.
Photos to follow. She's scrubbed up well again! A sea of carbon inside and out:d
doune this weekend, forecast is good for saturday but rain sunday. Come over and say hi if you're coming to spectate
