Surprised nobody had that charge cooler as looks like a good effort & makes a refreshing change from a front mount ... Hope you have some fun on the track with it & it keeps your heart attached to Pulsars rather than the French floozies you playing around with these days ;-) Bloody Essex boys :-/

yep the wheels are borbay rims which are 7.5j 16s, very nice lw rims aswell
im running a lot of camber on the fronts too which makes them look even chunkier.
the car certainly performs well with the chargecooler setup but I need to get the mapping checked as shes bogging down a bit at initial throttle, but get the revs up a little and she really flys
im doing an evening at brandshatch on 13th of this month so need to get her sorted 100% by then

don't know what power shes making but only running a bar boost at the moment so not very quick tbh.
had a few teething probs at brands last night though, plus the event was well overbooked so loads of cars on track and massive waiting times in pitlane so not happy about that, then the heavens opened and it absolutely chucked it down so cars were spiralling off all over the place hence more red flags and more waiting in the pits
cars got a fuel leak somewhere near the filler neck so fuel dripping onto rear tyre (not good in the wet lol)
oil leak I need to resolve
leaky sunroof above driver seat....looked like I had pissed myself lol
boost needs to be upped as its not quick enough at a bar......a gtr35 came past me as though I was going backwards on the straights
cars also understeering too much so il need to get that issue sorted too
but rb gearbox and engine wise shes fine
but overall if im honest I wasn't to impressed with her so will get the issues sorted and come back faster and stronger on the sprintday
92 Re: new track car on 16th May 2013, 4:39 pm
can't have those old man GTR tanks whizzing past so easily, you need man up & buy some diapers & get the supercharger plan on track ...
Not going do the GTiR reputation or value any good seeing an old pi55 pant5 going backwards lol ...
Hope you can get some good usable power the sprintday & then hopefully boosted enthusiasm for some further enhancements ...
93 Re: new track car on 16th May 2013, 6:12 pm
still not got car off the low loader but will drag it off tomorrow and get the issues sorted and will run 1.2bar at sprintday to give her a bit more punch
not gonna have time to get the charger bracket etc made up till the winter now so will have to run tubby up till then, but at least it gives me a chance to sort all the other teething probs out ready for charger to be installed
still got lots of enthusiasm for pulsars and as long as they take out all bmws then im happy lol,
cant be having one of them things pass me
94 Re: new track car on 17th May 2013, 1:09 pm
At least by winter a lot of minor car setup will be done & you will just have the charger to focus on which should make things simpler & easier to deal with if free time is a bit short ...
Hopefully next year the whine from your supercharger as you whizz by will burst the ear drums of the german lovers driving the damn things :-D Have fun :-)
95 Re: new track car on 11th July 2013, 9:51 pm
made 360bhp at 1.4 bar on a what I think is a 2871 tubby
could have made a lot more but left it at that as its plenty quick enough for track use this summer
in the winter it will deffo be getting the rotrex supercharger fitted which I ran out of time with last winter
cant wait to see how that works on the car.
ed was mega impressed with the charge cooler im running he was shocked to see how cold the return pipe was back to intake so that's got to be something ive done right
touches wood but engine I built for this car is very strong not bad seeing the abuse shes had.
when I refreshed it over the winter it was still in great condition so I only fitted a new hg and set of shells but nothing really needed doing at all.
anyway see how she performs now at cadwell on 28th of this month

will be itting a dogbox within the next 2 weeks hopefully
yes same guy who set the gtr up did the pulsar too so shes handling pretty good but to be fair its not been on track yet only the sprintday so cadwell will be the real teller.
im off to millbrook proving ground tomorrow to hopefully learn how to fine hone some driving skills in the gtr as its a bit of a handful with no traction control so hopefully what I learn I can use with the pulsar also.
5o/c start for me in the morning to get there
