Figure out why you keeping having ring land failures then fix it!

I'm still running around with low comp on cylinder 4 till I can get my spare block figured out. Waiting to hear from Dom if he has one available sleeved block right now I can take and swap for mine.

Right now just ordering a new piston, main and rod bearings, piston rings, case bolts, gasket kit, etc to swap things over once I get the new block.

Should be back up and running soon if parts come quickly

Daimn Arthur, you are always 20 steps ahead of me, lol! I love that you do all this stuff yourself by the way!

Good pick on that Kognition wing, I reall wanted a custom one from them for the wagon, but they wanted some serious money for it...

What plans do you have for your brake ducts? I picked up a set of the roo ducts to use in conjunction with the quantum setup. Seeing how you are going all out, you are probably doing the frame rail duct with some fans

One day soon I would love to join you on the track, just to see if I can steal some lines and setup tips from you

Hahaha. Thanks man. I try to do whatever I can... mostly to save $.

I'm sure you can find some sort of wing element out there and make custom mounts out of aluminum to mount onto your hatch/roof.

I'm pretty sure I'm just going to run fog light covers for the track and zip tie the duct hose on when I'm swapping over to the track wheels. Too risky if something starts dangling when I'm driving on the street making tight turns a hose might catch or something.

For sure man! Let me know when you plan to come out. If I can get the car fixed fast enough I want to be able to go to the turn2lapping.com event again on June 1st.

how many miles did this motor last? (obviously at 600whp and track duty)

anything you notice different about that race day and did you hear it detonate? anything you can think of to help future folks not have the same fate? 600whp is a lot for a 4cyl, how about you use a h6

do you know what broke yet? sounds like a ringland too, though they aren't supposed to go on a nice piston and ring set...

your car is nuts man, mad respek!
