Parked the car the rest of the day and went out Sunday morning to try for a high 1:22 when something went pop coming out of turn 1.
Today we found this:
So it was nice of the motor to hold up for most of 4 races:
Superlap battle in November where we set the track record there for Mod
Speedventures time attack in march where we tested the new front end aero
Modified Mag shootout in April- results will be in the August issue
and then this first Global Time Attack, where it lasted just long enough.
So we're not really surprised with the boost we're giving this thing. It's really tempting to go sleeves, wills rings, and oversize studs...
Sucks that it split. I do however wonder if more people will believe me now when I say sleeves are still going to split even with the 'closed deck' outback block...no replacement for getting sleeves.
So does this mean you guys have data now?
sounds like you guys have the right idea with rings and sleeves to keep the foundation of the motor strong. Don't forget pinning the mains too.
CONGRATS on the time!!!
