With the car all together, oil cooler relocated to adapt the new cooler piping (intake temps with the new piping in race conditions were 34 degrees!) it was time for final tuning, ready for a road test.

More efficient flow did make a difference, so much so that a new fuel pump was sourced to keep up. having no fuel cell, swirl pot or external pumps was pretty hilarious at 250kw; however the intank Walbro 255 just couldnt keep up any longer.

With no time left, a Walbro 460 was purchased to get us through WTAC.

Ready to road test

SQS gearset shifts amazing and car pulls harder then a teenager.

A crowd favourite, ricks AU attracted plenty of attention, not the expected time attack car; but still managing a 1:34 with plenty more in it!

Packing the truck, generously donated to us by Jim Pollicina; i hadnt driven one of these old girls for a while, but enjoyed the 1800km trip up behind the wheel.

Wasn't exactly the smallest set up; but we carried a whole workshop with us, fuel, tyres, and has a cabin with bunks and all the creature comforts. We were very privileged to have such great support! Ravage Raceworks know how to be track ready!

Well done mate! Sad to see things not end the way you planned but always good to be back in the driver's seat!

Hanging out to hear the final power for the current setup on "big boost" too [-o<

:idea: Saw a post on Facebook; and its been a few years so thought i'de pop in.

- Got Married
- Worked and lived Regional WA for multiple years
- Re-Centered my life around close friends and family (turned 30 :lol: )
- Neglected SRS for 2.5 years as it sits in storage

Have been hired for a role in NSW; with the company recently relocated us to the Southern Highlands
Approval from the wife to dust off SRS in Victoria and bring her to NSW on strict conditions :lol:
Goals for this year are small; however getting back on track is one of them; being an hour from Wakefield is good.

Hey Tom, yeah that was me on Facebook I’ve followed your build on here and am glad it’s still with you and in tact. Great news that you’re in NSW mate looking forward to seeing some updates.

Cheers

Justin

Living close to a track makes a massive difference.

More seat time will see faster times. :twisted:

Hey Thom, hope your Handbrake is as generous as mine and we see you attacking the tracks again.

The was left as is; which was a little time capsule after 3 years; spares, tyres, tools, merchanise even the race gear was all in place as it left SMSP in 2016.

The fun begins now; entire loom requires inspection and replacement where necessary. Everything needs to be checked front to back; and this time its about taking time and enjoying every step of it. Don't expect to be racing for at least a few months; but i'm in no rush. plenty of stuff to do in the shed now; so i will tackle the issues 1 by 1.
