Sorry to see that Ben

BHSS at Capalaba make our hub centric spacers. Keeps the load on the hub not the wheel studs

With Jamboree just around the corner and testing getting underway I thought I would post up this little teaser

It's been a while since I've posted an update so as they say, better late than never!

First up Jamboree!

What was supposed to be a single day event ended up becoming a 2 dayer thanks to Mother Nature (rain) Saturday qualifying went well with a 12.6 and 2 x 12.3 second passes. Sunday saw race day with a lot less competitors (and spectators) and the organisers made the call to run racing as 'Chicago Shoot-out' instead of eliminations. For those of you who aren't familiar with Chicago Shoot-out - basically the entire field gets 3 DYO races with a point gained for each win and the two racers with the best results making it to the final. I won all 3 of my rounds and made it to the final to face a pretty tough cortina. A bit of luck came my way and the cortina red lit giving me my second All Motor win in a row! And to top it off I also scored the light of the night trophy with a 0.001 reaction time.

Now fast forward a few weeks to Maximum Attack and Queensland Raceway.

After a bit of a set back at the street sprints a couple of weeks earlier (with a few favours) I was ready to compete in the N/A Performance class. The morning sessions were held on the Clubman track where I put out a best lap of 1:00.23 - given the track conditions (there were literally ducks on the track at one point) I was pretty happy. My nearest competitor ran a 1:00.33 so it was pretty tight. The arvo was held on the Sprint track where I managed a 57.1 lap which was enough to secure the win for the class with a bit of room to spare. One of my favourite moments on the sprint track (which I didn't get on film unfortunately) was following an R35 GTR and despite him pulling away from me on the main straight, I was pulling him in each lap consistently until he moved over and waved me past!!

As for what's next? I'm having a month long break and competing in the last 2 rounds of Open sprints and the final round of the Street sprints.

Also I'd like to thank Tassie_mk1 dmwdave and Zuboo for their help in recent times to get the car back on track!

Great to see you performing so well mate! (Even if I do miss your boosted setup) with the scope this engine setup has I'm keen to see how it goes once you start turning up the wick on it... though that footage of the R35 waving you past would be priceless! =D>

Have been making some small changes on the front of the car, firstly I've mounted the front bar with Dzus fasteners more or less in preparation for a splitter/airdam setup. Secondly I've put together some ducting for the radiator, the car doesn't suffer from overheating as such but summer is coming fast so extra flow through the core can't hurt and I'm hoping there may be some benefit from smoothing out some of the nasty flat surfaces that were in the front beforehand.

Next up I'm making some new closed headlight panels to replace the mesh that's currently there, closing off the gaps that are there and also tidy up the fit of the grill a little more.

Best estimate from the drag (based on weight and mph) is 205-210hp atw. It will be back on the dyno soon after what the postman delivered yesterday :wink:

Thanks Harry, we'll see if it does anything this Sunday!

Thanks for all the info on the swap, I just put a K20Z3 in my MK2 Swift. It's mounted but still a long way to go to complete!

Added some weight to the car today, still needs some bracing. It has made the car cover an interesting fit :lol:

Next up, splitter time!

Hopefully it's all worth the effort.
