    S197 3V Fabman's build; How did we get here?

    Thats disappointing. After trying out 2pc rotors etc, I just went back to stock brembo package 15" discs.. As mentioned before, the Pagid pads are lasting longer then the discs.

    Maybe you could get a couple of cables to seat with a medium strong electrical current for the over 8000 rev limit??

    Used to love racing in the rain... Worked in heavy snow areas for most of my life and enjoyed driving in the white stuff... but last time my boss was in the rain turned out expensive, and a little sobering... am in no hurry to go do that again. next time its wet... this guy is just watching.

    Like all your oil mods and notes taken... but in the end its also the physics of stroke length, piston speed and heat etc... Maybe your right and I wasted a lot of time and money of lighter forged internals :eek:

    Holy shiznit! and thats on stock internals?? I left my redline at 7800rpm after the last two engine failures... just gets to dam expensive.

    I was trying not to hurt any ones feelings.... But we can still feel faster...at least in our heads.

    Well I was just being general, Some of us are fatter, others are balder...... and some are both.... But that does not mean we are slow!!

    That’s the way it goes..... from Bolder and Faster.... to..... Balder and Fatter!

    Shiznit!! Thats not good.... Lithium battery is off my xmas list. I remember Blacksheep-1s rule #7893.... about using water based fire extinguishers. Hope you don't have too much damage!!

    😆 My Boss likes the racing.... But the credit card costs are a closely held secret.

    If the better halfs new what we get up to, I think it would be something less kind then Dumba$$

    I guess it only matters what we call ourselves.... They all think we are nuts anyways. Crazy as a fox sounds fine with me.

    If I remember right, Pete, from trackday solutions recommended the RS56 for the rear pads. Think I have Gloc 12s on the back, With the TC off, you change them so little you tend to forget what you put.. or maybe its just age...

    Curious about what you thought of the RST2 Pagid pads. What wing angle did you use..? I went from 5 degrees to 3 degrees and thinking about 0 degrees for the next race. looks like we will not hit the track till next month 😔.

    True, but my junkyard gen1 heads where ported and polished with bigger valves... Am getting 468rwhp, but with 26degrees advance and 3 degrees knock. mean to get Shaun to look at that when he has time.;). Thats with 93 pump gas. In the end very similar numbers.I got the impression that the...

    Sorry full of questions. What was your oil pressure with all the mods? I was a little worried that my pressure went down after all the mods (I missed that about the oil pump). Was that with that with the square 350/30-18 Hoosiers? What where your impressions of the handling and braking...

    Gads!! Just got a big pang of Jealousy!! Terribly envious of your racing. We are shut down with having to get a permit to get groceries twice a week... Looking forward to living a little through your race videos!!
