Yeah it was only for sale to see if anyone wanted to buy it and keep it regoed.
I wasn't expecting any bites as its a shitbox.
As a track only car there was nothing on it that I wanted to keep, and would be way more $$ effective to sell it and start again, so ill just slowly morph it to something like I want it.
In the short term its just going to be a case of driving it and fixing it if it breaks.
So time for an update then.
Since last post before xmas I have replaced all but the drivers door and front screen with Lexan.
That's about it for mods.
I entered my first ever race event at the end of Jan.
MRA at Wakefield.
Its a 4 round series.
I entered SuperTT which is pretty much no rules run what you got.
Based on last years events I thought ide be towards the pointy end ~5th maybe on lap times.
I qualified in 2nd with 3 secs slower than PB which I was stoked about.
1st race it would seem I didn't know how the start lights worked and dropped to 6th or 7th then made it back to 5th.
I was driving like a total pussy as can be seen in the video.
Before race 2 the white EVO driver came up to me and gave me a cup of cement and told me to just get in there.
2nd race I started in 5th and made it up to 2nd before engine failure with 2 turns to go on the last lap.
Damn. But 10 years of DIY engine build/tune im pretty chuffed it lasted this long.
Initially I thought it was a snapped timing belt.
It turns out yes it was along with snapped inlet cam, scoured head and crank @ woodruff key groove.
So out came engine, strip (except pistons), new crank, head and cam.
Its all back together and ive got tomorrow off to put it back in the car.
Next event is MRA round 2 on a sat then NSW supersprint round 2 on the Sunday.
I miss round 1 SS as im getting married and the misses probably wont like it if im late and arrive in a race suit...
