Outside of the first build day this was the most exciting day for the team. We were almost at full capacity in terms of team members and even had some extra help from our crew! The first and most important item would be the intermittent no start. This no start had turned into a never start. For a week the team has been assisting via our forum to the owner of the house we work at. Try this. Try this. Try this. Nothing worked.

Today's first mission was the 100% find out why our ETA is not starting. So we got to work. Bentley in hand. Some good sensors. A DVOM and our endless e30 brain power we got to work. We pulled the old pulse reference sensors and they were outside the acceptable range. Replaced them. Crank. Nothing. ECU Swap. Nothing. We started harvesting parts from our running E30s... nothing. So we decided to install Chris' new wheels/tires on his e30. Technica hooked him up with the CR1 and Dunlop Star Specs... then we went back to work. Found out the C104 had been unplugged during our dash removal... Damnit Josh(87shark just FYI) he really tried to screw us there offering up lackluster volunteer work! hahahahahaha

So we were back up and running. Instant fire. The ETA IS ALIVE!

Then some goodies arrived and John with MashedUpDesign showed up. I'll let the photos dot he talking. Needless to say while we worked on other things like installing all new ignition system on this engine he got to work!

And then it was time for brakes. There was a little meat left on those bones! Not sure we really needed to change them? We have some newer calipers we installed. New rotors all around. We are going with PFC06 pads and their new brake fluid. Should be great for endurance racing!
