    Ps unit has been installed and is working. No time to drive the car as i have to leave for FD in the morning. Really hope this works out as planned....

    We have a dash mounted knob that varies the assist given by the motor and turned funny clockwise it switches the motor off. So hopefully we can dial in the correct amount of feel

    Prepping the car for Awesomefest this weekend......
    Should get some very good testing in over the weekend

    [​IMG]

    We have improved the rear radiator ducting to try and bring water temps down a bit. I think it turned out pretty well

    Got a .82 AR Turbine Housing from Owen Developments for quicker spool at short tracks and in the wet

    And 3 pallets of Falken Tyres arrived ready for some serious abuse

    World class build for sure. What Electric power steering pump did you use? From an MR2?

    Tear down after awesomefest......

    Unfortunately we had electric power steering problems which prevented us from drifting like we wanted to. We are now converting to electrofluid steering so that should solve the problem

    [​IMG]

    We also had a spigot bearing collapse on us in Mallory so a new one needs to be installed and the engine and box have to be removed to do this

    And we are coverting to electic water pump, which should be a better system for the rear mounted rad

    1 more test session before we head to BDC Silverstone in September
