hello Zuboo,
I was wondering if there is anything you can tell us about the performance of DMW Dave's lower control arms and hubs ?
how is the devcon standing up? or is it going to be some time before you'll know?
how is the radiator ducting going?
is there a test and tune day coming up for Qld raceway that you will be attending?

Sorry for the late reply.

The DMW lower control arms and hubs work well but i had more issues than most getting the setup to the sweet spot and had to keep throwing ideas and different setups seeing what work and did not with the arms.

This could have been my car is running 4 seconds faster than any other swift and the corner speed is higher which makes the setup more sensitive or i run a higher spring rate to the weight of my vehicle than anyone else which also could be the reason.

But in the end the car ended up going 1 second faster and does not scrub the outside edge of the tyres in the lower speed corners as bad which is win win.

Devcon is holding up well we had the head off for an inspection to see how it was going and no issues spotted.

Radiator ducting dropped the running temp down 5 degrees which is a massive difference.

Next time im out racing will be after Easter i will post a date up when closer.

Dear Zuboo,

Great build! I'm also preparing a boosted swift for circuit racing. Wanted some more advice on the water jacket grout. Are you still using Devcon aluminium filler? How are the results? Any further tips on the installation of the filler will be appreciated, thanks.

Just noticed your recent comments on Devcon above, but will still appreciate any advice on the application, thanks. Also came across another product called HardBlok, not sure if it can compare with Devcon.

HardBlok is more like a grout than the Devcon.

It all comes down to the expansion rates where the Devcon has alloy flakes/filing through out which makes it expand at the same rate as the block where the grout was cracking on the edge and lifting after high HP.

Dear Zuboo

Noted, thanks for the info. I'll proceed with the Devcon. But I've noticed the measurement from the bottom of the 4" high cylinder to the water pump port is about 1" in height. So approx 1/4 of the cylinder height will receive the filler. Was hoping I could have gotten a bit more height for the filler on the cylinder.

Hey zuboo,
i was wondering what braces are you using? if any?
how did you run a cam position sensor? was it off the bolt heads?
do you think it would work on the crank bolt heads?
how much devcon did you go through?
did you relocate the oil pressure switch?
:)

do you think it would work on the crank bolt heads? it's a tight fit for the sensor to clear the pulley and if you ever broke a belt it would most likely give the sensor a hit.
how much devcon did you go through? Not sure about half a container.
did you relocate the oil pressure switch? yes i have it mounted to a oil filter spacer block


Here is a picture of how the cam sensor is setup, my wiring guy dropped the ball back whn i finished the build and i was using this picture to show he fucked up so you know why my hand is in the picture.

So this happened on the weekend.

Cracked the block, I had a feeling is was cracked as i would find small amounts of coolant on the rear side of the engine after racing.

It lasted 3 years running 330hp getting driven hard every time.

Now the question is where to go from here all the other Zuboo boys have gone to K20 honda blocks or i can go with luke burkill crazy G13b billet block deign.

I have a spare engine i'm getting built up to get me through the rest of the racing year and we will see where it goes from here.

Before the block had an issue i was killing it against the Porsche club only ended up doing a 56.8 due to traffic and only getting 10 laps in but still managed to knock most Porsche off, it's a shame i was taking is easy till the air temp cooled and grip wise it was going to knock my PB of 54.2 easily but that's how it goes.

I'm waiting to see how you guys go :twisted: your builds are all close to running thought i might wait and see if any changes are needed or if Luke does the full billet block he was talking about doing. :twisted:

Very keen to see the results and I'm sure Luke has changed how big swift build's are done from now on he will become one on the legends of the Suzuki swift community with his build and others.

Looking forward to seeing this title (legend) bestowed upon him.

Better to be a legend in a little pond than a small fish in a big pond.

Can't hold a good man down too long, eventually he will rise and conquer........

Fame and fortune lies ahead?

Honda = no headaches, trouble free, unlimited options, low cost. Loose your soul.

Swift = headaches, high cost, zero options, pull your hair out, greatest satisfaction, retain your soul.

That's still keeping it in the family...Nissan to Nissan. They'd cry if it was LSsomething into a Nissan.
