G130 YCF my first sprint car

182bhp is on the high side of what you'd expect from a warmed Ti engine.

Corky is running 164bhp I think and Ben Curry 150 something I think.

We ran 199bhp on the Sabre which had an autosprint cam.

You should have great fun with that engine setup if you keep it on the black stuff :wink:

we now have 182bhp at the flywheel, cracking recommendation on the rolling road, he's a good guy and I will definitely be going back.
Excellent...must have a fair bit of boost to achieve that :D

Good luck testing tomorrow :wink:

See you Saturday afternoon

Steve, that's me in the passenger seat! Eldest brother was driving. No neck injuries, just a bit sore the next day. Perhaps in my case a bit of lasting damage to the grey matter as I'm still stuck on Scimitars :wink:
Just assumed you were driving :mrgreen: :lol:

I would also advise you take it steady on the test days Friday and Saturday. Take it easy on the first few runs and try and get someone who knows Curbs in the car with you. Sit in the passenger seat with a regular compie in their car. You'll learn a lot. Give the car a rest and watch others doing ho...

09.00 is a bit too late for Trevor Steven and myself think we are looking at 07.00
I'm happy with 7pm but last year it took a while to round everyone up :roll: :lol:

Is everyone else OK with 7pm?

Only done it on a DET not ET and then only replacing an aftermarket reg like for like.

No idea how to take original reg out of the circuit. Sorry for misleading info :oops:
