The manifold, turbo and downpipe came back from the coater today and will be installed this weekend during Automaxx Summer Edition automotive event. Here is a small teaser, the rest will be shown after the weekend:



The car will go back to EMS next Thursday for ECU install, some other minor modifications and the first start up....

Some updates:

The car was present at Automaxx Summer Edition automotive event last weekend when it got its ceramic coated exhaust installed.



I don't have any better pics yet, but its ceramic-black coated, which is very yummy


Apparently, I also got my first sponsor money...


Furthermore, Jeroen did some engine-dressing with nice hand-made catch tanks, the transparent hoses look very good imho:




Some further finishes...






Tomorrow, JT will add last finishes to the car after which he will bring the car back to EMS for ECU install and first fire-up... It shouldn't take long anymore...

Last update from JT.

Oil cooler installed (you can also see the ceramic coater headers):


I'm sure there are lots of other things that has been done in the meanwhile, but there was no time to capture them on photo because it was more important to finish the car as much as possible...

The last photoupdate I received from JT was: "she is ready to go..." just before the midnight


And she will go tomorrow. I hope I'll be able to pick her up driving next time.

Also, I would like to say another big Thank You to Jeroen and his team who have worked their asses off the whole week till late nights, while I'm away for holiday and the most beautiful female rally driver and playmate is cooking for me.



I'll be flying back to NL on Sunday, and I hope that the next picture you'll be seeing of me will be the one where I'm driving the beast.

Thanks guys!

Last week we've hit the track to test this beaut&the beast.

For the past few weeks, JT and EMS have both worked their asses off to finish the car for the fits test session on the track. We only had one chance: Wednesday the 29th, because the very next morning I would be leaving to Moscow for my study.

Things that were done:

Weighted and aligned the car (incl 30l of fuel), we expect to drop the weight by another 40 kg with tubular subframes and carbon propshaft.


self made strutbar


Some new stickers




We've also made some springs to hold the windows closed above 120 km/h. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of it yet.

Furthermore, lots of other things were done that don't require photos, such as dash calibration and mappings adjustments.

Then it was the time to leave to the test track (Zandvoort)

Once we'd arrived, we commenced right away with preparations, I got behind the wheel to test the handling, while Marco the co-driver sat next to me to focus on other car's reactions


Things gone bad after the first lap already, I was a bit too enthusiastic and ran off track due to cold tyres and some other factors after running 247 km/h straight. Only slight cosmetic damages and a lesson learned. Funny thing: we had no hooks attached yet, so I got out the gravel by myself, 4x4 rules!



After that we returned to the paddock to raise the cars front, because in the turns the car was filled with rubber smoke. When we wanted to return to the track, we got pulled over by someone from the tech comission:

- did you fix your exhaust?
_ lolwhut? (nobody told us anything.) Yeah, we've adjusted the wastegate and the screamer pipe, should be no problem by now.
- allrighty then, 'cause you had 103 dB.

That meant that we've had to let go off the throttle at the dB mic...



Those laps also were the "gathering information" laps, so after 4 laps we've returned to the paddock to find out very bad news...

Apparently, my baffle plated sump does not suffice to my specification, because the oil pressure dropped on only in turns, but also during acceleration. This relatively small issue will get solved pretty soo, but because of it, we had to give up our testing after 10 laps or so.

Some highlights for me:
- ran 2:10
- 2:06 predicted time (best sectors all together) And this with 0 experiencs beforehand, pretty busy track and 5-10 secs off throttle at the dB mic.



The moment I've been waiting for for almost a year will arrive on September the 16th, when the last Time Attack round will take place.

Until now, I would like to thank JT and EMS for all their work done so far, and I hope not to disappoint them in two weeks

Finally, some GoPro footage, more coming soon tomorrow or so:

Close call @ 6:40...
And quite fun that it appears that the rest is standing still (M5, 1M), check how fast I gain on them.

Hi guys, do you still remember me?

I'm the guy from Holland with the white Impreza...

Didn't post anything for a long time, but that's because I was studying in Moscow.

Meanwhile, I have finished my exchange program, and started working for a new tuning atelier.

But let's get back on topic. Back in Holland, the JT-team started with preparations for the 2013 season. The TSSFAB kit was installed and aero modifications were added. The "custom made" TSSFAB kit had to be "custom made", so some things were removed or added.



















The rear was modified as well, and Mark from EMS was kind enough to send us a larger swaybar.

For all the haters:

vs



Of course better pics will be made in time.

The gain? Lots of geometry correction and some weight loss, I guess we should be at <1150 kg atm, which isn't bad with 705 horses.

Then the aero upgrades so far.

After that it was time to hit the track of Assen.

Eventually it was possible to clock 1:56 with tire temperature problem due to the cold weather.

What's next? Initially, it was the plan for me going to The Netherlands for some test driving, but unfortunately I can't due to my current obligations (anyone's going to Geneva Auto Show next week during press days?). So we'll just have to see what the life will bring on the first Time-Attack race of the season on the 17th of March!

1:56 lap:

- has to be kph instead of mph
- due to the build up rush we did not have any time to fix the steering wheel at the right position
