No pics just to say it's off the final dyno tuning and still in one piece. Nice usable torque band with a peak at 5000 rpm. How much ? Not telling.. :D

So now I just have to tidy up all the wiring loom and be sure it is held down where necessary.Do some insulation in key spots. Fit a torque reaction limiter to take care of the engine mounts. If it all goes accordig to plan, I might even take it for a burn this week end and do some testing...oh yeah, Scoobie Snacks !!!

Will post some photos off the track and such later.

MD, was trying to beat you to the track but I think you're a lot closer. Can't wait to see a pic of it amongst the field. Should stand out quite well.

Well Oz has been in a drought for decades. Now that I have paid my entrance fees for the next track event, it's raining of course. FAAAARK !! Who can afford wet and dry tyres ?? !! SHEIT !!
The Cab doesn't even have wipers for Pete's sakes.

Not exactly but I like the way you're thinking.. :shock: :D :D

Actually it's more like :

Yellow : Caution lunatic speed has been reached.
Red : Beyond caution, your arse is on fire. Bail now !!
