i did notice this and last year the complaints were heard.
There are new rules about guard mods that state this is now no longer allowed. it might throw the guys doing this off guard....mind the pun.

I can't see them ruling it out. MCA has their massive "bolt on over guards" on their new AE86 running clubsprint. I can't see MCA doing anything without having 100% confirmation from Ian

Same owner who likes to keep things close to his chest it seems.... but those in the know (aka on facebook) know what is in the mix... there is a story on the World Time Attack Page about the build https://www.facebook.com/SRSGTI/

Serious bit of gear!

:roll: well i spose it wouldnt hurt to write a post.

I can skip to the exciting part; but im not going to.

Around March 2015 i was chatting to bewitched; i was in a position where there was no time for a rebuild before WTAC 15; but knowing i wanted to get the ball rolling with a decent rebuild something had to be done.

The conversation was had; (bearing in mind that Bewitched works at SuziStore i knew he was the man to find a decent, low km, unmolested G series bottom end that could be used to form the basis of SRS 2.0. Shameless plug: https://www.suzistore.com.au/
I could instantly tell that Bewitched was on board; he knew exactly what i wanted and delivered results the very next day.

Selection of various G13's

And in the typical Bewitched fashion; he immediately demanded on file finishing the thing. Only now 18 months after the fact can we see the benefits of the detail.

Inital plan was to build up a motor using the same tried and tested formula; aftermarket rods, vitara pistons; nice bit of grout and screw in the boost; whilst doing daily head gasket changes and living the dream.

It works; the motor that went in SRSGTI in early 2013 was exactly that; fresh built by Nomadic (purchased through the GhostG13b part out) it held up with years of punishment with ever increasing power; as well as 100's of dyno pulls. A true testimate to Nomadic for assembling such a decent donk.

Pulled the GhostG13b/Nomadic motor down to retire it as a paperweight; as a keepsake i had it soda blasted; then coated in a clear.

Not long after this; i received a phone call from Worthy,
The call itself at the time was short but sweet (this night was indoor cricket night, before the conversation got more interesting that was my main attention) Worthy had been in discussions with a Sydney based fabricator that worked at a legitimate motor sport orientated workshop. They had come up with an idea to redesign the G13b into something completely off the scale.
To make this viable; a 3rd investor was lured into the deal with the dangling carrot of.... a potentially huge innovation and strong foundation for a reliable heavy hitting purpose built banger.

Not the actual phone used:

What was the plan?

This was the stage where the main hero of the story comes into play.
A fabricator that not only shares this same weird passion for Zukes and has an crazy ability to make metal his bi**h.

Luke Burkill; known as Luke by his friends had generated an idea that when he explained it; made total sense. To make the G13b take more punishment; it needs to be cut in 1/2.

Replacing the top section of the block with 6061 billet; not only creating a closed deck design; but enabling the addition of 12mm head studs that go much deeper then the factory 10mm option; Lukes CAD design incorperated a ribbed support system that braced the cylinders at set intervals.

Even though completely in a conceptual phase; i was in.
