Alright.

The engine runs well... better after we remedied the injection pump timing. Part of the problem with that was the need to use a different pump because the first was leaking around the pump head, and the engine was in the car.

It's not what I'd call a fast Porsche, but we only used 30 gallons of fuel the whole weekend. Teams with fast cars use 15 gallons every hour or two.

Now to work on the handling...

Pictures from the organizers:




There's more on the website.

I've been to a Lemons race and a NASCAR race, the Lemons race was far more fun to watch. A Nissan sentra won. The most unforgettable was a pink Saab called " Swede little pigs". You refuel once for the whole weekend with that D24.

Correction; it was a ChumpCar race. It was in January so the weather was tolerable.

Pretty close.

It's only got an 11 gallon tank (or so) and the fuel cap was leaky so we only put 5 gallons in the first fill. Then it turns out there is some damn overfill protector hose that dumps fuel right back on the ground if you don't have an automatic shut-off like on a pump.

Time to rebuild injection pumps. One N/A pump leaked between the bodies on initial install, the second one leaks now from the top cover.

Is there a good source for turbo pistons/rods? I'm thinking compound turbos for shock value... probably regulated to 16-20 psi.
