Coming into the home straight..
We only have 1 week to go before race day...!!
Luckily we only have a few things to get done and they are all scheduled.Exhaust
This weekend I picked up the car from Hayward & Scott. The exhaust is absolutely mad!!
Today we started sorting out some strategically placed heat shields to protect some of the electrics. It seems a shame to put heat wrap round these but I suspect they'll end up getting wrapped when I get a chance to sort out getting the wrap.
The collectors have been made to spec and look great. The hole in the inner wing has had to be enlarged to get the primaries through. They then run smoothly under the wing. To the first of two silencers, first one before the mounting bracket and the second, much larger one after. Dash buttons
The Race Technology Dash 2 has a number of screens that you can navigate through, in order to navigate these screens there are optional buttons. I've decided to access these extended features and sorted out the buttons. Missprint spent some time today sorting out the layout and getting them sorted. I thought it was a great job, nice design. Wheel holder
We noticed that the way we were attaching the spare wheels to our trailer last year was rubbing off the powder coating. This year as shown earlier in this thread I'm running almost semi slicks which don't do so well in the wet. So this year I've decided to put last seasons Toyo T1R's on the spare set of Minilites I have and use them as wet's.
I'm going to get the burgundy wheels powder coated blue, just not in time for this weekend. Anyhow, the net result is that we need a more suitable way to transport but protect the wheels. So using a sewing machine we purchased from F H Douglas when he shut down. We made a custom cover... hopefully this will help.
