Hmmm Merc spills its guts and nearly catches fire :unsure:

No Nissan or Merc in the top 10 qualifying but still have the Nissans mid pack with under a second off the pace so should make for a good weekend of racing!

Nearly... but didn't thats the important thing :-)

I came over from Melb to support Nissan, hopefully the boys pull it together tomorrow.

The Merc did catch fire coming down around corner 4, sounds awesome very distinct from the other v8s.

Unfortunately once again Ken Block doesnt get to show his Gymkhana potential mainly doing donuts around a few barrels on the circuit :(

How the frick does Windows show them the right way up, but then upload some here sideways?

Because it is giving you a hint at what orientation you should be with the girls :laugh:

I think a brand/team finishing in 11th in a brand new car with a brand new/unfamiliar car/engine is absolutely outstanding actually.

We were happy to have all 3 cars finish... even if one was 15 laps down. We aren't "too" far off the pace but in a series where the difference between 1st and 20th is less than 1 second being a little off the pace is a bad thing

Huge issues with the COTF cabin and temps with nearly 1/2 the field having burns on their feet ( all 3 erebus guys and Dave Wall next door all had burns / blisters from the heat ) (pic of dave's shoes below after the race, entire sole melted onto the pedals )

Nissan having issues re fuel economy, so down on HP and bad economy. Nissan have some work to do.

Looking forward to tomorrow and the new challenges but already absolutely emotionally and physically drained after the last 3 days, been a long 12 month from concept to race grid

Agreed, can't expect a podium in there first event. Just have to hope every round they improve and get more competitive!! Was good to watch.

    • Been slowly chipping away finished catch can and plumbed it. Made new support bracket for radiator and intercooler, will need to mod one intercooler pipe and intake pipe. Made a shroud for new Maradyne fan and mounted oil cooler on it too . it has a divider to separate airflow. Sorted fuel system this afternoon with new lines,filter, pressure sensor and mounted ethanol sensor. Fitted a new fuel pump with wiring bulkheads. Going to start with tidying up and reinstall the body and engine looms. Need to wire a few new sensors . Planning to test cooling system for leaks as well.

    • So I thought the recent developments from HKS around the RB26 at the TAS for 2022 might be an interesting topic of discussion. For those that haven't seen it, this write-up on Speedhunters explains some of the points of difference with some detailed photos to boot. Here's the article in question; HKS RB26 TAS2022 It looks to include twin VCT, a  newly designed twin-chamber plenum, and electronic internal wastegates and recirculation valves,  just to name a few.
