    Ah gotcha, nothing wrong with that then but 60deg is still a little cold, so can you delay the fan switch on point so that it gets up to 80deg

    yeah.....from what i know on the dyno the fans run continuously(due to rad location) and temp comes way way way down. Mind you the car has not had any major load tuning yet.
    Regardless the dude tuning it knows that there is a whole lot of fuck that can be set up to get everything working correctly.

    You want the temperature to be consistent, and not low. Thermostats are good for this.

    Nice! But I think the tuner has it sorted.

    So......

    18psi = 380hp.

    Coolant temps run no higher than 88deg.

    1 fan comes on at 85 and it comes down to 79 in less than 30sec.

    we figure that the fan will become redundant when the car is all ducted and moving on the road.

    Needs a wheel alignment as i dropped the car off with it totally out hence only the 18psi tune. It shreads the tyres with more boost.

    Nfi when vtec kicks in. Did not stand Over scotts shoulder while he was tuning.

    When have a look at the cal file when i get it to my place and start setting up the boost per gear parts.

    Can tell you that with vtec disengaged it made 275hp atw at 18 psi.

    Revs to 8500.

    Bigger cams would be nice(these are standard b16a in it)

    Wowee. 380 FWHP and how much weight? I've got that sort of powah but 1110 kg car, so I'm thinking you'll be fkn quick once it hooks up. Better get to the gym to work on the arms so you can sort of hang on to it...
    Quaife torsen diff not more appropriate for this sort of silliness? Or you've gone so far the plate diff is better you think?

    Top work anyways, and looking forward to some in-car ciruit/hillclimb vids!

    Torsen don't work if a wheel lifts which it shouldn't. Plate will be fine and can be adjusted.

    Car is off for the wheel alignment today.

    This is how the splitter and wing came up.

    Wing has 30deg of adjustment in 1deg increments.

    So went to wakefield for some testing on Thursday.

    It was just testing so times were not really important. More how the car drives and how the complete setup works.

    Results......

    Off the bat the car is hard to warm up(wakefield in winter and 7deg temps)
    It starts first push of the button button was running very lean not holding idle, hunting and poping on acceleration. This wasn also when the engine was at 70deg.
    My opinion is that the charge temp was too low and the fact that wakefield has a different baro level to Sydney.
    Fix will be an extra map sensor to look after baro and have a fuel table set up for it and also do something with the comps for the charge temp. Once all the manifolds had heat soaked it was fine. Car starts fine and runs fine here in sydney.

    The rear mounted cooling system is all finished. The radiator is ducted soley from the two naca ducts in the rear quarters. On the track temps sat between 75 and 85 depending on road speed. Only issue being that when the driver would enter pit lane the temps went up a fair bit. I have a guess that this would be due to the fact that there is about and 8mm gap between the rad fans and the radiator core. When they come on it pull more air from the gap rather than the core. That with also an extra fan table in the pdm to operate then by road speed as well.

    Um, the other small issue was that the spliter/diffuser would kiss the pavement coming down the main straight, back straight and down the hill. So really speeds through there were well low to stop that. 90km limit down the strights etc. Need to make some of those adjustable rods which attach to the leading edge of the splitter and the frame of the car.

    Handling wise the car is very tail happy. Has plenty of front end grip but.....

    If you have the correct entry speed the rear end is loose, very loose. If you dont have enough speed and try to drive some more into it and it spins tyres it understeers.

    Need a taller final drive and a 7psi spring for the gate.

    Grunt wise the car is quick, really quick from what the driver tells me. On the main straight he tried to give fifth gear a bit of a go and once vtec YO! and GATE come in the car fries the tyres(full slicks) and changes lanes. Needs a smaller gate.

    So.... Throttle by wire, taller final drive and a 7psi spring is what I am planning.

    That and will look into telemetry for it.

    Apart from that lap times were slow if people are interested. The car never did any flat out runs at any section but going through the logger if you take the best sectors of the day I was told it did a 1.12

    i'm surprised it was overpowered

    that's awesome, so much work man..... crazy stuff. what do you do about the snappy oversteer? I'm guessing you've removed so much weight from the rear there's just no tyre pressure onto the road? you might even need to ballast the rear to get the handling right? stiffer rear swaybar?

    I would guess softer rear sway and as much rear wing as the front end will take. Mental car dude, hope you get it sorted out

    Really cool build Alex. I hadn't seen this one before. Amazing amount of work you've put in and to a great standard from what I can see. Congrats.

    Going to be tricky to dial in the handling but it's 'there' somewhere, just a matter of finding it. Keep up the great work and load some track vids when you get them. That's the only thing that I think Motec slips up on. Their video. I've not seen anything from their setup that has great resolution. There's something else on the horizon from another supplier. Aussie. Should be worth waiting for from what I hear.

    Some pics of the rear end. The carbon radiator exit cowl will be here next week. Trial fitted it yesterday and it is ready to lay up.

    Seriously great work Alex. Inspirational.

    btw, have you driven with those Pista seats yet? The reason I ask is that I bought a seat with a halo in the past but this was in a primarily street driven car. I returned it soon after as it was dangerous in traffic with blind spots and impossible to reverse park. However the style that you have with the cut outs look like a possibility. Just wondering on your impressions?

    Yeah mate I did use them on the street earlier in the cars life. Left hand scope of view was fine but right hand was a tad difficult and you had to be carefull of those lane changes.

    Thanks for the comments mate
