Popped over to see Mitch at Pro-line and we sorted the plumbing for the swirl pot
Put less than 2 litres in the tank and it fired up and ran which is mega, just need to re-set the level sender settings and we're done.
Added these residual pressure valves to help prevent pad knock back
One for the front brakes right near the M/c, as we think the issue is up front. Also added one for the rear brakes too. Both hold 2psi in the line to prevent the fluid from draining back and allowing the pistons to retract. Time will tell if this is successful.
We pulled the front wings off of the wheels, ripped the splitter and valence off and I went straight back out.
Tracks straight, brakes in a straight line. Felt fine, Ben seems to have made a strong car, the barrier there is especially soft too, it's got massive foam pads infront of the tyres to protect the bikers when they crash. Radiator took a whack and it's a little bit bent but still holds pressure.
I also hit right on the join of the barrier where the access road is so the barrier was extra thick there!!
I drove the car from where it crashed back to the pits, which I was pretty amazed by!!
Went back up to track and road to check a few bits and bobs.
First up was noise reduction, I used this at Cadwell previously and wanted to check it didn't affect the AFR as sometimes air boxes can cause problems
Pleased to report no change at all and although it's hard to check when inside it did reduce the decibel meter reading by a few decibels so we'll see what happens
Another little plus was that we actually made 250.6bhp but slightly less torque but I'll take 250bhp however I can get it!
Jim and Steve said fuelling is very very safe and with a bit of leaning 255+ would be achievable!!
So, air feed for the air box, hose is too long as I've got a reverie airbox on order and don't want to cut it down yet, headlight needs painting, both temporary solutions to see if it makes a difference
Also, crash damage repair!!
Might see if I can get a brands day in next week see if any of it has made a difference.
