    Sold the rear wing today, Pi it had become evident the cars now at an aero imbalance needing more downforce at the rear - good to see all the work we've put into the front is starting to work like it should!

    Downside, just started looking into larger wings. They are far from affordable, feck.

    Very true. $4-$5k for a Mcbeath wing.. I am waiting for the laser cutters to reopen so I can get started on making some.

    How come your car isn't pulled down???

    We've been working on it improve the car, not pulled down yet as it had a big going over prior to island magic. The engine still needs to come out to give it a once over and replace the clutch. Should have the carbon roof back next week, looking forward to getting this lump of steel off of its shoulders! the only hyundai left will be the tail lights.

    Have started building the new fuel tank too, 15L more capacity should do the trick, with the new tune and more boost came a lot more fuel usage. Minor problem

    Geez some hours have gone into this thing but not much to show from it. we've realigned the entire body. After a few touches over the last few years the body work from the A pillar backwards didnt fit too well.

    Since the new roof had to be mounted on it was time to straighten everything up properly.

    The new wing should arrive some time this week however i can't see myself finding the time to mount it before Phillip Island in May, going to a swan mount configuration. So a complete new wing mount set up. Thankfully i've got another option for phillip island, a rear wing off of an argo lemans group c race car i scored some time ago, it had a little bit of damage but we've fixed it up and it'll mount straight to our existing wing mounts. Good enough to get me out of the shite.

    Just gets better as you refine the package.

    Nice work on the carbon roof. How much weight was saved from the highest point of the car?

    The old roof weighed 47kg, however that had the a/b and half the c pillar still attached.
    The new roof is 3.6kg on its own and 2.8kg of mounting brackets/ hinges ect.

    Close enough to 40kg

    Time to get my arse into gear and get this thing running sooner rather than later, plan is to go to vic time attack and give it a shake down in 2 weeks.

    Massive list of jobs to do, but an enthused to get back into it and have a steer again!

    Argo wings all mounted up now.

    So, took this little nugget down to PI yesterday. Despite cooking a headgasket (was a bit suspect before we went) we well
    and truly pb'd!

    Carbon roof and all the other stuff we've done to the car worked a treat. Plucked the engine out today and will give her a
    freshen up before phillip Island that's in a few weeks time.

    Thanks chief, we only got one shot at a flying lap. My driving was a but rusty too after not steering anything since November last year.

    Stripped the engine down, repaired it and the old man will be screwing it back together tomorrow so we can plug it back into the car on Saturday.
