This will not be taken lightly, and I expect the Capricorns to bounce back the next time.


Kindest regards,
Unbiased Lars.
I heard he was running an pull start engine LoL
But Seriously I Know all you Capricorners deep down really want to be piloting Mugens hence the Serial hijacking of this thread.
Lars are you guys coming down for the Serpent cup.

We would have liked to, but the date doesn't work for us. We're planning to come to the NSW titles at Easter (school holidays) though, and we're looking forward to it very much. We just cannot travel to all the events that we would have liked to when school is on.

Kindest regards,
Lars.

Jeff's engine had a blue round looking head, so at first I just assumed he was roasting the rather slow and old looking Caps with a 12TG...

But nah, I think he was cheating just a little bit, sucking the paint fumes off the SQR's with a GIMAR Mig...


I did find one of the things I was waiting for, how long the plastic diff would hold behind a lesser engine, looks like I got 4-5 meets from it, I suspect it may have been starting to go in the second heat, by the third it was done, though somehow I managed to limp my way into a 11th place rank, and had I not been so lazy and done a quick re-build, I'd have seen a bump up to the A final which would have been weird (couple people going home for various reasons).

And big thanks to the Jeffster, and all my other mates on track, our track is a great place to race...

I'll probably have a new Nova 3ST soon, so I'd guess that will shorten the life span, though I think I'll go up to 70k fluid as well, which in theory could make it more durable. But either way I may build up a couple extras now, so maybe one extra front, two extra rears with one metal and another plastic geared.

Actually I got to ditch the urethane belts as well, it's really hard to get the rear one to roll free, I got mine set full loose right now, and it still squeaks on the pulley, hate it, saw Jeffs with the amount of free roll and I want that, kind of wish Mugen made some Kevlar belts.

Mugen's rubber belts are kevlar i think. they are the brown type xray have. The squeeking i think comes from the side belt. I could be wrong, but i think the rear pulley is a little further out than the front pulley ...i could be wrong though. the rear belt should be easy to get free as you can run it at a loose setting.

Also with the diffs you need to run the diff oil suitable to the track, so running 70k if you really need 30k won't work as you will have a loose rear end.

just run the larger pinions as metal and run the rest of the internal gears stock it should hold up for quite a while with the larger gears in metal.
