I don't mind, it is cool that people are inspired to build things on their own.

Took the car down to Cobb Tuning Surgeline for Dr. Tim Bailey to work his magic on tuning the car for the new injectors and more boost. Overall the session went great with the engine running well and no major issues.

Here is the car strapped down to the dyno.



I had to take off the driver side rear fender in order to get an A/F meter on the exhaust which exits out under the car.



At higher power levels we were dealing with significant rear wheel spin. We ended up with 3 jugs of water in the rear truck to put weight over the rear wheels.



Here are the final dyno plots. At 18psi, we are making 335whp and 305ft-lbs. This is on a Mustang Dyno which notoriously measures low. Either way, the hp is fairly linear all the way up, we reach full boost pretty quickly, and the torque curve is nice and flat where we want it.


I am working on video and will post it soon.

You can see it on the dyno graph, full boost around 3700rpm at 18psi.

Sorry for the delay in updates. I have been really busy working on the car and completing a bunch of aero upgrades. We ran this car this past weekend and were very happy with the results.

First off, we got a new piece of Alumlite for the front splitter. The last one got banged up pretty good.



Looking underneath, the splitter goes back as far as allowed.



The front of the splitter was wrapped in a layer of fiberglass and carbon fiber to protect the leading edge. This thing took multiple cone hits this past weekend without even a scratch.



Also modified the front valance that to match the front fender profile.

The next step down the path of aero upgrades was the rear.

Here is the rear trunk lid with the lexan spoiler removed.



The replacement is a new dual element rear wing from Dauntless Racing. The height and location is dictated by the rules for an open cockpit car. Here is the wing with the custom uprights mocked up.



Here is the wing's final mounting location and a new rear bumper in place to complete the look.



To support the decklid, I made uprights in the rear trunk to provide support under the wing.



Aerocatches added to rear decklid for ease of use and adjustability. Makes removal so much easier.



Loaded up and rear for battle.

We took the car down to sunny California this past weekend and run with the Golden Gate Region PCA on Sat. to do some aero testing and set-up changes. Overall very happy with the new Dauntless as small adjustments in the wing flap yielded noticeable changes in grip.

Here is the car at the event.





Here is a video of my fastest run.

On Sunday we ran with the American Autocross Society down at Marina, CA. We were only able to get a couple of runs in before the transmission called it quits.



Here is a video of my first run which was still good enough for a top10 finish, but well off the pace of TTOD.


At the end of my co-drivers second run, he appears to have downshifted abruptly without blip throttle to match the RPM's. You can hear on the video of my co-owner's run in which it occurs, the tire scratch a bit, and loud grumbling comes from the trans. We broke several teeth off the 2nd gear on the mainshaft. The car was shut down quickly so no other damage appears to have occurred. The parts could have had previous damage from launching, but in the end it doesn't matter who or how it broke...it will be fixed and we will move on.

Here is his video:


It will be easy to fix as parts are stock...but time to look for a stronger solution.

Britian,
You know where to find me if you want to talk gearbox. Even if you stay 901 based, I would be happy to do special production on straight cut gears of the ratios you choose.

Regards,

Matt
