Yeah we heard a knocking noise as you came up to druids on the 2nd lap(?), Then saw you heading for the paddock from pit lane. Unlucky man Sad .

We'll be sure to come say Hi at Snett! Smile

Haha was that the same lap I went through Graham hill bend sideways and on 2 wheels? Loads of oil on the back of my car when I got back to the paddock. Ah well, [Censored] happens lol

So, Long time no update!

I found out what had gone wrong with the old engine, It had blown a hole the core plug on the block behind #2 piston , to top that off it also blew one of the Crank oil seal on the gearbox side, Which explains the rapid loss of oil! So, that engine was Fubar'd!

So it was it was engine out and in the bin time!



54 Minutes later Smile


And that was me done for that night!

I also decided to set about sorting a few other jobs and problems i had with the car, but this next one was not one i wanted to find!

Those were brand spanking new Bilstien Top mounts, new in for Brands, did 2 races and they are destroyed! Not a happy bunny!


Still, its good to have spare parts haha!


Time to fit the new lump and box




New water pump Smile




And finished!


And i MAY have taken it to work one day!


Now the next stuff im about to show you was NOT planned at all....


Bonnet flew up at about 90mph on Shakedown/Road test, one of the pins wasnt in, my fault end of the day!


Still, Its good to have spares Very Happy


Took her home Smile

Then took her for a shakedown at a local sprint event Very Happy





[youtubevideo]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zehg75QyGfo[/youtubevideo]

So, all in all, the car is in a much better shape than its ever been! Now i just need to sort myself out haha!

They look familiar but I can't quite put my finger on it Razz They do remind me of Racing Dynamics, but they do BMWs so that's a no

OZ? Racing Hart?
