Very bonkers, they have been working on the map and it now spools up 'like a scalectrix car' apparently. I assume that means quickly.

Well done Jeff....

I've not been keeping up with your exploits - what engine with what mods are you using & what is output & rev range of power?

Hey Russ

It is a MR1500T, which is a Turbo'ed billet crankcase engine. It uses Busa Block/pistons/rods and heavily modified head. It drives into a Hewland Transaxle. Low boost (0 on the boost knob) puts out 520-530 BHP, high boost (11 on the knob lol) makes 630ish. Rev limit is 10500rpm.

Yes, once I've got the video system installed. There are some drive-by videos from last year at Cadwell and some Dyno video as well.

Wow!

Serious bit of kit, surprisingly low rev limit at 10,500. How reliable are they & how many miles between rebuilds? What clutch is used to mate the engine to the Hewland box? I'm not even going to ask about price, obviously hugely eye watering!

What events are you using the car for?

Rev limit is there to preserve the engine (as always). There are development engines which are Gen 2 which are up over 850BHP.

I don't know what the clutch is, it will be bespoke as the engine doesn't use the Busa clutch/gearbox. If you wanted to buy an engine I think it starts around 38K.

The car has been used previously as an Endurance racer in OSS, I'm going to sprint the car in the British Sprint Championship and I don't expect any issue, engine wise. The guys who make the engine and Geoff Page Racing are keen to get it out and running so they are supporting me in competition (and rebuilding at the end of the year for cost).

The ECUs are Life F88 and the turbo casings are from a TAG McLaren (!) with very modern interiors.

It looks outstanding and the engine looks/sounds a rather different kettle of fish to those we generally see and hear about on here.

I do hope you enjoy it - I'd imagine it'll take a bit of learning to get the best from it

Indeed, but I also suspect you'll probably enjoy the learning process
