      Deja vu. Almost back together. This time it bent the inner clutch disc a bit and I had to hammer tune it.

      Haven’t seen one, but at that point I would tack weld the bolts to the friction disc.

      Needs some body work from Bill then wrapped I think.



      If the track prepped early we could have gotten some runs in.

      Thanks for putting that up, I don't know how to work anything anymore now that everything is on fb and Instagram. For more WF Footage ERacer Productions has all the all motor, limited street, 11.50 and outlaw qualifying and eliminations up now. You can see me miss 3rd pretty bad on my Rd1 solo pass.

      Paul, are you using a 02A? I’ve got a friend who is thinking his 02A 3.6 swap that is having issues shifting gears because 300whp is too much for the transmission and wants to swap in a 02M. What are your thoughts?

      Yeah still on an 02a with diff, 4.24 and modded syncros. I run Torco RTF exclusively. Cm twin disc clutch and hydraulic throwout. The 1-2 is still a little slow but thats above 8k lifting to shift. 2-3 and 3-4 I can flat shift it without a problem.

      Whats the exact issue he is having?

      Current status. Bundled up until I knock out some customer wiring projects and get the rest of the new engine and trans parts in.

      Looks great! How hard are you leaving? (RPM, dumping or slipping the clutch) 1.57 60's must feel like a rocket!

      That hydraulic handbrake is the way to go. I used to run that to just the rear wheels with a pressure switch coming out the back to engage the 2 step.

      Are you running an alternator? (Saw one on the first page) Have you considered a 16v battery with a stepdown box/resistor to run the sensitive electronics?

      Its cut 1.51 and its got some left. 5800ish on the 2step, dumping hard.

      I have the hydro brake to the rear but I don’t really use it. The twin grabs too hard to preload.

      Using a 70a alt and decent size 12v batt. I did consider 16v but w big coils, elect waterpump, fan, big efi pump I thought it would be better. I may do it if I put a mech fuel pump on and ditch the water.

      Crank pulley came off again on a test hit on Sat. Key is gone and crank is .035” under where it should be. Luckily its less than .001” out of round. Fix for now is a shim in the pulley to take up the slack and the third or fourth crank bolt in this motor.





      Real fix is the forged crank but still waiting on pistons.

      Been a long few weeks but a really great weekend.

      Took the car out on July 3 to shake the car down for Waterfest25 and it was a ****show. Car was missing intermittently, would only start on the jump pack and the issue I had with the brakes locking at the end of last year wasnt fixed by greasing the pins. Best pass was [email protected] with the pass front glowing..:

      Figured some things out



      That is the master cyl pushrod for my wilwood pedals. I don’t know how but I bent it and it made the clevis catch against the cluster if I hit the brakes hard enough. It wouldnt happen with a normal push so it took me a bit to find.

      Misfires seem to all have been battery related. Fresh EPM Deka 20L installed.



      Some fresh plugs. Oem only because thats all there is.



      Converted the tune to run VP M5 methanol for the weekend. Starts way better than the e85 and the car sounded mean.

      Pitted in the back 40 at Atco





      Qual 1 [email protected] letting off car was running off the charts lean. Found a small issue with the tune (due to the different afr of the fuel)

      Qual 2 [email protected]

      Qual 3 [email protected]

      Packed it in.

      Sun AM for Qual 4 car was cooler and shifted a little better for a new best of [email protected]



      Qualified #3 in all motor.



      Took out Rich Long rd1 taking it easy short shifting 1-2





      Rd2 I got Ben Zarpentine in the 20v mk3. Had him for a hair then I was done.



      All in all a good weekend. Car went laps without any hiccups and I didn’t die from the heat. Need to figure out my 1-2 shift and make it cleaner. Should boogie in good weather, my 60’ was still 0.1s off normal. Couldnt keep from blowing the tires all the way to the shift.
