    Nah, he's taking it snow rallying.

    Hi all, its been a while, but thought it was time to update.

    Slowly but surely have now built up the new car, ready for racing next year.
    We were at Abingdon airfield for its first run 10 days ago, which went ok, had some problems, but nothing serious.
    An oil leak and a boost issue were the main problems.
    The new suspension combined with a new diff, makes this car change direction so much better than the old one.
    I'm really looking forward to getting it on a proper track, but most trackdays are fully booked at the moment.

    Small video from onboard


    As Photobucket is rubbish, I'm going to try something different and using the link below, hopefully you can see some photos,
    not necessarily in chronological order, but hey..........someone let me know if the link does not work.

    Need to write a list of all the mods, but that's going to take a while

    Thanks to MoleT-5R for the bumper top and Claymore for the loan of a laptop.

    cheers

    JT

    I think the question is more, what haven't I done? lol

    Currently still running the Turbo Tuner, but hoping to swap that out very soon.
    Differences from the last car:
    Completely stripped of everything That I don't need....electric windows, wiring, underseal, random brackets etc.
    Hoping the new car should be 100+ Kg lighter than the old one.

    Stripped and rebuilt the Delta link, including removing all rubber mounts and replacing with uprated parts.
    Fitted S60R rear brakes
    Stripped and replaced all brake and fuel lines and replaced with Goodridge braided lines.
    Fitted new Obp pedal box, thus removing the PAS system.
    Due to the pedal box, I've had to move my seat back and then make a switch panel as I could no longer reach the dash.
    New Team Dynamics Wheels
    New Ohlin Front shocks
    Gripper diff, set to full race ( I'm told?)
    New do88 rip kit, reducing from 3" to 2/12"
    New TWR front bumper with under tray( not fitted yet )
    New rear wing
    New Nuke Fuel rail
    New MPRE uprated engine mounts
    New IPD gear box tie

    If I can think of anything else, Ill update later

    Tbh it seems to be getting a bit busier around here lately, then which updates on threads like yours it all helps.
