19th Feb is playday at Manfeild, followed by
20th Feb 1/4 mile drags at Law's Road in Dannevirke
A good opportunity for those to get together for a weekend camping trip. I'll ask Matt how much room he has at the farm for tenting
I am thinking of heading up on Friday, after work

No as keen to enter into the drag at this stage since i'm not even sure if the thing will still be going, i must get a turbo radiator for it yet and get that installed and bled. Also can you sort out my fuse for the fans, I'd rather had fans on the day to cool the thing down

That HD clutch would be ideal for those mean launches/skids at Dannevirke, unless it rains...but usually the weather there is ok.
The coupe won't be ready for either event
Looking at a replacement gearbox, hopefullly before MM in April it's all sorted and re-tuned.

First time for me ever on the track and really stoked, learned heaps. Joe's car is just outstanding, not just quick its so strong.
Bring on the next one I can only continue to improve.
Thanks guys to for making the day, all those that came and gave support to. The DOBC T's were a hit

As you can see from the video the car wasn't too happy in Joe video. I had to pull out of that session due to the car not being happy on boost.
NOTE: i believe that the smoke is fuel related, it was chocking me so much i had to leave the garage for at lest 15 mins. The car was running for less than 30 seconds and produced all that smoke.
Playday - Subaru engine wasn't too happy
There was SOOOO much smoke it was visible from outside
Have noticed today that the O2 sensor wires were completed melted through so that might have caused some of the issues. Something i found interesting was that i put in 5L of oil and 7L came out, and had a very strong fuel smell to it. Engine will be coming out and dismantled to check out what has actually happen. PLUS oil through the FMIC and AFM
REBUILD TIME more probably, time to slap some V4 STI heads on
Before the next track i hit I'm going to get that link in the car to give it some more power

So wonder where that extra 2L of oil came from?
I've never had more than 5L drain out after a track event, it usually ends up coming out the BOV, getting in the intercooler or the piping.
How would fuel get in the oil?
Past the pistons. Either worn bores or worn rings, or both. Would explain all that smoke too, burning oil.
6 stars, 6 cylinder and 6 speed. 666. It's the devil car!!
