How many tanks did you get through that beast today? I looked as though it had a good amount of smoke out of the exhaust. You did awesome with the tune it appears as well as the break in. I am so glad I could help you get back out on that track.
So bro tell me about the engine more. How does it compair to your last engine? You know, your newest paper weight?
How was the temp on that thing running? How is the torque and top end? When do you get ED or do you have one yet? So will this engine and your setup keep up with the pack of Sirio's and Nova's Like I said it would? I would imagine that the motor will keep getting stronger as time goes on for the next few weeks. I just hope your happy with the performance of that engine because I was the one that told you it would hang with the big boys. How does your exhaust pair up with that engine? Sorry for all the questions bro, just hope the motor is as good as I told you it should be. It's great to see you back out on the track bro! Keep me updated my friend. I know you have been WAY busy and I've been sick. If you race tomorrow make sure to monitor that engine temp throughout the day bro!! This engine will last you for a long ass time, just keep an eye on her dude. Oh yeah, I want to see some FAST lap times too! Take are bro and I shall talk with you soon. Tell all the guys hey for me and I wish you all the best of luck! Later bro!
Hope your feeling well!!!!
As for the engine, power combo the Nova 2630 Pipe, pretty damn good damn low, heaps of Zip in it and its till running rich!!
I have done at least 15 tanks now in it and the tune is so easy to dooooo!!! Simple shit really with this motor!!
As for motor compared to last - well its quicker at the rich setting i got now, and once she is dialed to a killer tune to its almost peak it will be hard to hold it to the ground!!!
One thing we are finding is our track the more power you get down themore tracksion we need - genrally we need a soften the rear up but not too soft!!! running 1.4 in rears but special mods in the shocks tried your tips from this week and its seem better!!
I have also made changes to the front with differant shock position and better shock bleeding!!! another words, lots of time in shocks!!
Tonight i did the shocks again and also trimmed the bladder as you mentioned!!!
its better now, nice even soft feel of shock with half rebound, i do notice by the need of the day its even softer due to wear etc!!!
Motor is Torqqqque down low, the new Ed trans next week will be interesting on gearing, i cant wait already!!!
It was funny today i had the heat gun out to start it up twice, as the pinch is still man, its hard still after 14 tanks LOL
thou during a run, i had aanother run 5 mins after a 5 mins run and she ws still warm and cranked over nice, I am taking good care of it, not forcing the starts, letting it warm up etc!!!
Takes about two laps to get up to 100degress, its holding that temp really well!!!
and as for run time, its doing good aswell, just need to lean the bottom off as its fueling up a bit and bogging if i sit for 10 secs!!!
Up top seems ok, not really screaming hard, just a nice note as i have got 2nd gear coming on early like 8 metres to 10 metres, on out start finish pit wall straight it hits second just before half, so i like it it like that!!!
Tomooorow is race day, i wish all my luck to just finish the day!!! there isnt really much tuning to do, just a little to see on th day - she is plenty quick already, and any moe quickness ill need wings!!! LOL
Its a very good motor if anyone wants to get there hands on, and affordable aswell!!!
Thou D you rock, you made my week, my day today and for all of us to play on our home track on a nice sunny day was KILLLA
Shit i have gone on and on - Ahhhh sorry for all but its been a positive step forward!!!
Speak soon, i got more vids of a few other bannanana rolling "
