Everything packed for our first race this season.

Big turbos covered with plastig bags and finally with painted radiator frame.

Friday night lunch with Jyrki's friends at their summer cottage at Virtasalmi.

Pit area at Motopark track. Saturday morning.

Jyrki packing chute and Simo watching to learn.

Jyrki reading Stroud manual to do it right.

We were once called back from the staging line cause some oil was dropping from under the transmission and we missed the first elimination round.

For the second round at the line up everything was fine...

Weather was fine too.

First and last time at the strip this weekend!

And after the only qualifying run we did we started to tear the engine down.

FHRA TV crew was filming us when we were dismantling the engine. Well, it never showed up on TV...

Jep, this is where the white smoke came... #5 piston in pieces.

The old and reliable stock bottom end finally died. R.I.P.

Data from the one and only run. White line indicates the RPM, red line indicates the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) and the green line indicates the TP (throttle position).

Sunday morning and back home and opening up the engine some more.

Push rods and pieces of camshaft and piston everywhere.

#5 connecting rod in quite bad shape!

This used to be a piston....

 

So, now we have to build up the new bottom end with part we already have. It will definetely be stronger with forged SRP pistons and Callies Compstar rods. Also the new camshaft from Schneider will be used among with Harland Sharp roller rockers and Innovators West harmonic balancer.

Also the block will be bored out to those new pistons and stress honed with stress plates. Unfortunately our new main caps and main girdle are still in progress and we can't use them yet. But later...
