I've joined the local car club and they have about 13 time trials over the year on various surfaces .
tarmac , gravel , grass + mixture
generally each time trial is between 1 & 2 mins long
SWMBO is going to use the EVO and me in the R

Sounds like fun, would love to have a go at something like this. Im hoping mine will be quite a bit further along by march, admittedly as ill probably get Bob to do a fair amount while its in being repaired Laughing

Well the motivation to get the car back on the road for the time trials has meant me doing a 9hour day on the pulsar today .. I'm happy to say bar needing to buy a 32mm socket to tighten the hub nut it's done . fully rebuilt and ready to rock .

Before i put the cover on last time i made sure i did all the rust protection and undersealing so i was left with smply rebuilding

Started by sorting the cv joint out .

Word of advice for everyone between the bottom of the wing and the car is an area that catches mud and crap .
clean it out before it starts to rust through the wing or the car.
im lucky mines always clean but can imagine it's just waiting to fill with stuff

Mate really impressed with the amount of work youve put into the car, keep the updates coming. Mines off the road just waiting for a tidy up and reading this is getting me all excited to start, until I open the front door and feel how bloody cold it is outside. Keep up the good work

amazing the weight difference between them . the mongoose decat is so heavy compared to the 3inch decat ..
and oh my is it smaller in diameter


Bobs front end stripped down ,,  start date 01/11/12 - Page 2 20130216_104422_zps75dce187
i know the 3inch looks longer but for any father ted fans
ONE IS NEAR AND OTHER IS FAR AWAY .

also changed the oil

Don't know if you can tell but while it was in bits i had the bottom wishbones fully seam welded.. . Don't know if it will make any difference but worth a try

I like the fact you've painted the wishbones to match the brace bar Smile
Did you feel any difference after you had fitted the decat?

Wishbones were powder coated gold beforehand but it ddin't last very well

Are you going to take the injectors with you when you for a map rob .... all looking sweet mate ..... not sure if welding up is needed for wishbones do they split apart then ? Or is it to avoid water geting inbetween the joints just wondering as il be taking mine off soonish so il weld them up if thats the case .

ROB_IOW

it's only to make them stronger. . dunno if it will be any better . worth a try . .

Dunno might just put my injectors in now and have a play with my power fc .. will soon know tho coz wideband will let me know what the score is ....

I think i may have found somthing im really good at .
You can not tell the wing has been painted

That is the drivers side done .
Just need to wait for a wheel arch liner to turn up then once the passenger side rebuild is done put the ARB back on .....

Then i put her back to bed
