New for 2016 water heated sump using my New Techniques Pre-Heater.
I have also made the sump shallower so will be able to lower the engine and gearbox just over an inch.
Having fitted an oil pressure gauge mid season I found I had way too much pressure when cold and no pressure on long left corrners so I will now make sure the oil is hot and run an accusump.
With new Ohlins and a 25KG lighter car "Me lighter 1 stone so far" Bring on 2017
Allan

Congratulations on your runs yesterday at Shelsley Allan, 28.14 is a brilliant time and only a smidgen outside the closed car record of Mr Endean.

Out of interest do you have similar power, I think his Gould had around 700hp?

The mini is about 450 but I havnt had it on a dyno just seat "o" the pants tuning for me.
Its a good feeling when you do it your self and it works.
I did try the esses in 3rd but higher gears get me better times with this we rocket.

And excellent start times as well Allan!! A 1.75s must be in the top 5 fastest starts at TWFSW?

Gulp!
I've never heard of such a start time to be honest.
Astonishing runs Allan.
I look forward to you using the new grippy surface at Loton in September.
