Very nice car. Looks to be high quality work all round. Really like the short intercooler piping and whole engine set-up. Should make good power and be relatively responsive.

What rim/tyre size are you going to be running?

I'd like to do the Shift day at Wakefield but don't think I would have sorted the overheating issues by then.

I saw the car on Friday, this thing was a killer.
When he starts this thing up, YOU KNOW ABOUT IT.
It will be a car to watch on the track IMO.
Great work!

You should try and run 255 all round. I run 245 V70A Kuhmo's with just lipping the guards (which you did for me btw!) but the bigger the better obviously.

What is the target power or power expectation?

The overheating issue has me beat. Overheats on the track after 3-5 laps. On the dyno after 20 minutes straight with no fan, temps do not rise over 88!

Have virtually checked everything (head gasket fluoro check, checked thermostat, water pump, bled the system, changed alloy radiators, changed radiator cap, installed an oil cooler, measured water temps in various places, installed radiator air guide) all were fine and yet it still overheats.

255 would be sweet, i gotta see what i can get my hands on.
im hoping for between 250 and 280rwkw.
have you got aftermarket alloy radiator? if you do try modifying it to tripple pass, if you want to know how its done give me a call, it does wonders on the track. Are you running thermos or crank fan?

here are some pics of the rear wing install, i've gone through the boot onto an alloy frame, the boot will now be fitted with bonnet pins for easy removal, and the frame is pretty strong, i sat on it and doesn't budge, a lot more solid than mounting straight on the boot.

Hey Louie, the wing looks a LOT BETTER fitted compared to when it was sitting on the floor.
I was 50-50 on it but now I like it.
Keep up the good work!

Your car is looking top notch.

What times are you expecting at the various tracks?

I am running an alloy radiator with the standard crank fan. I think it may be a head gasket issue so will do a few more tests.

I'm sure both the car and the driver need alot more development before they are breaking any records :P
