    Mi16 is Stage 2, need to sort out the basic car first.

    BTW: The photo makes the car look prestine, but it does have some dings in it, mechanically the car is perfect. It drive like new and idles perfectly.

    Well Parry the engine is due back from the machinist early next week. If my mate gets another engine back from a different machinist first then he will be doing that one before mine. That means a week before it will even get looked at.

    Once he starts on my car it should be 2 weeks to completion. So, hopefully I am looking at about 4 weeks until it is finished. That includes the initial dyno tuning with low rev limit etc and "safe" tune.

    Then it will be long drives to get the km's up as quick as possible. Once run in its back onto the dyno for the "real" tune and the nitrous tune. Then its time to hit the drag strip and circuits.

    Parry,

    I might drop in as well. Your red beasty looks relly nice on the drive by last sunday evening. Should have dropped in but was rather stuffed.

    How are you getting it to Goulburn?

    Driving it, its fully registered, it past the RTA pit inspect with flying colors.

    Only issue I have is the new EBC brakes are all over the place! Hopefully they bed in and become more consistant.

    are the rotors new?

    there is a quick way of bedding the pads in, but you have to be careful not to come to a full stop at any stage.

    Use the original rotors, had a good look at them and they didnt seem to need a shave.

    I just took it for another drive and it seems the right rear drum is locking up too easily and getting the car sideways.

    As this is the first car I have had with drum brakes, are they adjustable?

    Thats what mine tends to do on the road. Well it did before I got decent tyres. And it was the same wheel. Right rear.

    You can normally adjust drum brakes. Not sure on these though. I haven't looked at them.

    I'll actually be at Deearna's parents place at Mittagong for lunch on Saturday so I'm going to try and scam some time either in the morning or afternoon.

    I'm going to try my hardest to get there though. wink

    Very nice Parry - looks great.

    It will be nice to have a machine you can just race and not worry about

    Are you going to fit a cage? I started thinking seriously about this after the Perth Classic Rally last weekend as we were hurtling flat out in the rain with trees wizzing past..

    When the Mi16 goes in a cage will be a logical next step. If I can get the car registered with an Mi16 then it will only be a half cage.

    Step at a time.

    BTW: I have cured my rear locks ups by flushing the brake fluid, but it does like to pull to the left sometimes still at hight speeds only. Im suspecting its the tires or the pads are still bedding in.

    The brakes are prefect at 60kph it just from 100kph and hard emergency braking that is sometimes wants to go left
