Post First test 2011
Just had Goodwood,s test days emailed to me so my first opportunity to run the rebuilt engine on track will be the 5th April . Half day session will do at £125 for the pm session . Not my time tested head so am a touch nervous :roll:

Post Re: First test 2011
Well what a day . Weather wasn't ideal but had dry but still slippy patches so times weren't great but was clocked at 106 sec's by Dave Rix who came to give me a little grief :lol: well I did blow his Subaru engine at Goodwood a while back . Matt arrived as promised , thanks Matt , and did some dial checks for me over 10 laps . No engine issues , around 4/5000 rpm is a touch less grunt in 4th than before but it was wettish so not absolutely on it . The top end is great , still pushing in 5th at 8000rpm so says Matt :P . Bit strange actually cos the revcut should have stopped me at 7800 rpm :?Had some real fun with Matt on board attempting to keep up with the Stars And Stripes 6.2lt Manta on 14inch wets ---- what a monster , sounded awesome . He never even so much as switched going through the corners and I was squiggling around a bit trying to keep him in my sights . Matt seemed to enjoy it so no harm done --- probably good that it was wet or I may have regrettably gone beyond my talent chasing him :!: On a dry track we'd never have seen him again once he'd left the pits in front of us . Mind you a pair of Caterhams let off behind us were never in mirrors over the 5 laps . New head seems to like more to drink too . It took 3/4 gallon to top up after the 5 laps at 2.4 miles a lap :shock:

Post Re: First test 2011
I limped home after Goodwood with the wheels screeching away on the trailer , mostly at 40mph . Serves me right for not servicing it apart from three Tyres over 12 yrs . Bearings needed repacking buy ok otherwise . Cables and shoes , auto reverse device plus springs etc etc . One brake drum had the lower shoe pivot sheared off and rolled up into a shiny ball . I made a new pivot and welded that on but the rest was expensive . £316 for shoes , fittings etc for two axles then four new cables . You'd think at that price they'd throw in four split pins for the castle nuts though ---- just have to buy some tomorrow . Anyway , five hours later it's done ready for the 30th April at Goodwood .

A damp day, but successful test at goodwood with some interesting cars on track such as the stars and stripes manta which sounded like a plane taking off on the straight with a certain red stylus catching up !

Post Re: First test 2011
no wonder, it's twice the size of the stylus and probably has an engine 10 times as big :D

Rain and sun is forcast for the Sprint at Goodwood this Saturday -- maybe it'll just be shower when I'm in my paddock slot :lol:
Unless there are some late entries it looks like it's me plus my old adversary the spaceframe Escort in sports libre . I noticed his declared engine spec has changed from 1998cc to 2001cc so he's either had a problem or some improvements :roll: It has coilovers on the tube chassis with a 625kg overall weight and Marty B discovered he had 260bhp up front , after a crafty chat . We'll just have to see how he goes on Saturday :?:
