We were back at it. We are working to get the car ready for a shakedown at a BMWCCA HPDE event. One of our drivers will be piloting it and I hope to be able to get it out for a single session. We'll see how that will work out. The car is coming along nicely and did get it back on the ground. Just need some livery and wings and we'll be set. Looking VERY good IMO.


Enjoy!



Goodies coming in!

Then when trying to re-fire the car we decided to really spend a little time to figure out why the car has trouble firing. Then once fired it runs terrible until it warms up. So we get out the multi meter and figure out what the issue is. Plenty of fuel smell and realize we have no spark. Have voltage to the oil and coming out of the coil. So let's check on the cap/rotor... Oh dear. This doesn't look too good... haha

So those parts are on order. Brakes on order. Livery in process. Looks pretty good just sitting there... you can see the beast wants to run!
