    Jordy won't get anywhere near Ray on a big hp track. He's punching way above his weight in the Cibic but National level outright is a big ask of an Unders car...

    Barney - i find your Crocs way more offensive that the fact you'll be driving it from the wrong side of the car. Get your shit together man, geeez.....

    Yeah they are kind of cool but ugly lol
    I imported it as a racecar but as per ususal the US standard wasn't overly high and didn't meet the required CaMS specs so I stripped and started again.
    It's coming along nicely, just need to be careful I take my time and do it right the first time and use the good components. I don't want to rush it just to finish only to have to do things twice.
    Hoping it looks good on the track, I think it will

    We are about to Build the Engine and Suspension. Ash has been sorting all the fiddly stuff like fuel tanks etc. Mid 2018 first run I guess with 2018 SA Nats the target to have it sorted.

    Great, I'd love to see pics when you've got time; you guys always seem to screw together some well thought out bits of gear.

    Nice build!

    Were they sold as LHD in Australia, or did you get "CAMS discretion" for it to be eligible for IPRA?

    They were Group A homologated - anything that's Group A homologated is legal in IPRA.
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    Picking the car up today.
    Had the new fuel tank made, with the new rules it requires special mounts and straps, all the pumps and filters mount to the tank, has in built surge tank. Also had the rear calipers mounted, that required a new plate to be lazer cut so we could use the NASCAR dog bones.

    Man i forgot how expensive it is to build a racecar.
    Just the hose and fittings for the tank and the hardline in the car to firewall bulk head is just over $1000................ Thats not including fitting it that just the parts, add the pumps, filters and tank costs the fuel system will be $5000 :-(

    Spent the evening with Steve (supershake) and Jeff dummy fitting the manifolds for the independent throttle bodies. Drilling and tapping the head to fit the ARP mounting studs, Steve is doing it I would make a big mess. We still need to remove the old Devcon that was used when they were on a 5ltr V8 Supercar Engine and do some minor port matching otherwise we couldnít ask for a better fit.

    Been busy the last few weeks.

    Tonight I bent up the hard tube for the fuel lines and made the braid hose for the main pump in -10. My first attempt at hard tube it was fun, I hope it doesn't leak!

    Steve and Jeff have been busy on the engine making up the mounts for the throttle bodies, this required drilling and taping the head for studs. Also you will see we have started to make the air box CAD (Cardboard Aid Design)

    Bought some second hand Ford V8 Supercar rocker covers, they are low so makes it easier to build a nice air box. They need some work to fix up the dents and a good clean up but if you look closely you will see the oil feed in the side and the little oil squirter holes for the valve springs

    I assume you're knocking the epoxy out because you're running more capacity?

    Yeah exactly. Ports almost match up perfectly without the epoxy only about 1-2mm out

    Much bigger ports on this engine than a 5.0ltr V8 Supercar. We don't have the restrictions Supercars do.
