Yeah, what your engine builder said. Always proud, just sad I didn't get to watch the event.

We are very proud of you my friend, keep up the great work!
Thank you Ryan!

Thanks Darryl, snippets will trickle down to media soon.

Tbh, I would not call it "great" work. With a PB of 1.40.8 on street tires, I SHOULD have been in 1.37s on semi slicks. So 1.39.6 is an average result tbh.

List of excuses: First time on these tires, new gearbox. Too much work and exhaustion leading to the event. Aliens...

Now we need to start preparation for WTAC an event I am determined to do well in.

On other fronts, Focus RS was sold. Great car but never loved too much.
It was bought as a dd and occasional track car but after TBAG came good and was working reliably, I did not need it as much and instead needed a car that can tow.

Short list came down to AMG G55, G350d and Caynne diesel 4.2 diesel (not the 3l that I did not like).

Ended up buying a 50000km one owner Cayenne with Porsche warranty. It will serve as long distance driving car, towing.

The other dd is becoming a little project that I am doing on the side.
2013 Clio 200RS cup 2L NA 7800rpm.

It is getting:

Milltek resonated cat back
K-Tec intake
Tune on 98RON
Bilstein B14 coilovers
Ported intake manifold and throttle body
Braided brake lines
Uprated engine and transmission mount
Few other small bits and pieces

It will only need a better clutch-flywheel and a front LSD

Simple low speed fun as dd and simple track car.



TBAG news:

CAE shifter and dog box do not work well together. CAE shifter came out.
Jim Berry custom clutch is AMAZING. Hands down the best clutch I have ever experienced.

You can say things are getting serious here.

A much more accessible project designed for dd and spirited driving and as Joey said seat time.

Standard F4R motor.
Ported intake manifold and runner.
64mm TB (oem is 60)
Uprated engine and transmission mounts
Intake and CBE
...

Hoping for 210 to 220chp and 8000rpm.

So that’s you then right?

Correct.

I think they realised the dwindling number of Subarus.

Than being said there are few cars that are running a stacked PWR set up with good success (Bitten STI and CMA/Nev Scott). It is 12 to 13000 dollars. :eek:
There is not a LOT more data on it but I hear it is more efficient than Process West V mount.
