have you been able to upgrade yo wheel size. My friend competes in SRX out here in socal running on work cr kai's 17s. Are you still on those hoosier's, because I know for west coast toyo is main sponsor. How is the cooling for you, have you had cavitation problems from running?? He's been having problems with the SR having shitty cooling capabilities at high rpms (30-45min race), and dealing with the heat from a choking 2871 and creating massive amounts of heat around the footbox. So much so he's been getting blisters on his feet. We are ceramic-coating the DP and tossing on some heat wrap. We already put the gold foil on the firewall and such. Hopefully we can clean up for december.

the only wheel size i really want to run is a 16" dia. but because of tire options for later on, i believe i will haev up eventually move up to a 17"....width, for comp i will prolly run 17x9 front w 275 rubber and 17x10 out back with a 295-305 rubber depending on power with will proly be in the 350whp range i believe.

Toyo may be a sponsor out there, but east coast nly has te options of Toyo bucks, they arnt out here givin out freebies most of teh guys run hoosiers anyways, slicks seem to win the races. I am still on hoosiers because i get the used and for free for te Porches 944 guys, free tires = saved money even if the do only last me one weekend.

my cooling issues are nonexistant on track, i see about 160* on a 95* day, i run a v-mount that i have designed to be super cool on track, off track is a whole other story, good thing its just a track car . What is his cooling setup like where he is getting cavitation?

Heat will always be an issue, biggets help is heat wrap eveything and get a dhield for the turbo or one of those turbo blankets if possible, keep the heat on and in the exhaust stuff and out of the engien bay and cabin, i have melted my shoes over the summer form my DP, but plan to heat wrp it for next year, this year is oevr for me now, winter is well on its way.



can you link me to shots of your buddies car, im dying ot get other setup in my head for when i am ready for my comp license. and possibly help with certian things i have picked up from teh track to aid in cooling.

Update

suspension setup
-Silkroad coilovers (typical setup no revalving)
-Tein front suspension bolt-ons (tie rods/tension rods)
-Uprated bushings from energy suspension (upfront only, and steering rack, and swaybar pieces)
-Nothing else (not kidding)

Wheel/Tire Setup
-17x9 +17 CR Kais all around
-Toyo RA1 255/40/17 all around (toyo offers toyo bucks too, but we can only run them in the classes out here, hoosiers are good for about another 2-5/tenth per lap, but they cost way more)

Brakes
-Brembo Grand Turismo (fronts) Normal drilled setup with replacement slotted on hand
-Z32 Rears
-stainless lines
-hawk blues rear, ferodo pads front (no using porterfield after some pitting
issues with the pad and rotors
-Z32 M/C

Engine
-blacktop SR
-pieced together 2871 turbo running like 10psi if that much
-koyo rad
-s-afc tuned
-400cc injectors i think
-massive amount of new ducting and gold heatwrap (cured all overheating issues, also aided in design by the guy who wrote a small article about aerodynamics in a recent issue of SSC)
-setrab oilcooler
-running on 91 (no need to incurr extra expenses)

Interior
-Megan oil press. guage (it was free)
-sparco circuit seat (the cheaper one)
-boost gauge
-still using stock cluster for tach,speedo,water temp
- 1 very fuddging balling cage with nascar doorbars, dimple-dye

I will get some pics up soon of the ducting and interior setup. So far the car has lasted great, they are mainly pushing for reliability rather then trying to beat SE-R and honda challenge guys. Its only the first year for the car/driver. Learning as we go along, he said going to the 17in wheel/tire size helped the most with going to different tracks and the gearing the wheel/tire gave him (stock final drive).

This last event he had a major footbox heat issue. the 02 sensor had popped out and the gases were just cooking the area. We are going to hook up some datalogging around the footbox/engine bay too see if the fact we had little to no ducting previously was the reason for the footbox issues.

The cavitation issues are common with all SRs when ran at high rpm for long duration. Its a well known problem, which is why I was asking you.

sounds like a pretty good suspension setup. Same with engine, i just dont see the need for the 2871R if your not going to use it, might aw well stil with T28 with alil more boosta and get better response out of it. Tuning, get away from that SAFC, i haed mine after 2 years of usig it, i have an AEM EMS ill be using next year with some fnacy tning and still low boost, but its an addition to the setup i can use for years and have complete reliability with tuning.

Heat wrap is always a good idea, and ducting always helps keep things cool, incomming air and getting the hot air out as well. I run about 170* average on a hot track sessions. with ducting and no heat wrapping of anything. I need to wrap my downpipe so that i dont melt the bottom of my shoes anymore .

I use the hoosiers because i get them free and used, no better deal than free, since the porsche 944 cup guys are just dyin to get rid of them. Toyo bucks sound nice, but if i am buying new tires, i think ill go hoosier in the end since i hav heard alot fo complaining from teh racers whoare used to slicks that have tried RA-1's.

I knwo the 17" wheels have a very wide selection of wheels and tires, i wanna stay with 16" to try and keep my CG a little lower overall, if i cant stick with 16" wheels ill move up, but not until its neccessary.

As far as cavitation, i have never had an issue with it...at all, i have designed my entire setup around reliability, and so far its paid off 100%, not a single issue since i put the rebuilt motor in last December, running strong and makes great power at low boost, i think i did about 270whp at 14psi on my T28 boost was at about 3300rpm.. give or take 100rpm (its because of how i put the motor togeather, sshhhh dont tell anyone i have 9.0:1 comp. with a 100% stock engine).

I use my stock cluster because i dont wanan spend money on aftermarktet fuel and tach gauges yet...speedo is uneccessary, my shift light does all the talking for me, and i have all other neccessary gauges in the car to check on the engine when im on a straitaway.

post up some pictures of his cage, i know exactly how i plan to finish mine and how m going to gusset it, im just not going to do it until its time to set the car up for comp. Itll be too long to say wait and see, but this 8pnt bar is going to be the hawtness, you wait and see ...oops.

i will be at VIR again this year, and the car will be working awesomly, just like my last event where i was passing at least 12 people per session. I am very excited to have a good running car this year, biggest issue was my engine harness, i shouldnt have had it modified, so i replaced it with stock SR harness and rewired it myself.....oh and i replaced teh throttle body gasket cause it blew out on my way to VIR last time...oops.

between the expo and my last nasa event i firmly believe i am down into the mid 2:20's with my fastest lap times nwo when before i was round 2:28-2:30...with my only mod being my seats and harness's.

last event...


EXPO...


i really wish i could have taken you out andy, to really show you want these cars are capable of with just better brakes and tires in comparison with your car....i was keeping my distance on several race cars out there and actually impressed 2 race drivers which was very cool for me to hear since i have been tryingto hard to find places for me to actually pick up speed and bring times down.... like being flat out in 5th gear through the upper S's, i was in the 110mph range before braking into T10 (blind left hander)

UPDATE!!!

after 3 events in about 2 weeks i have learned a rgeat del more abou tmy car and what it is still capable of in its medeocre performance standings. I will have video posted of both VIR GRand from teh mazda drivers event, and video from my last session at Hyperfest in which case i killed it and had a great time out there.

I ruined a front caliper and ended up having to barrow from a drift guy that happened to be at Hyperfest also. Now i have just replaced both my front calipers with remanufactures Iron calipers to keep costs down and the make sure they never fail, all new hardware pads and rotors both have one weekened on them, so they should last me about a year.

the seats and harness's were by far the best investment i have event spent on myself and the car, hands down, no complaints, at all.

my turbo has been making some kind of chirping noise so i may investigate or just go ahead and run it till it dies, not sure yet, its a pretty good debate.

new suspension plans are in the works, everything to tune camber, toe, ride height, comfort and shock rebound, should be a good setup, great compared to my current, i am hoping its my last big investment needed to get to the low laptimes at Summitpoint that i want so bad, we will have to wait and see.

i will be starting a new build thread for fun of my brothers car, Honda Civic, his old car crashed outside T10 at VIR at the ITR EXPO, so alot of swapping parts, chassis prep, cage work, etc all must be done, its a long process, but itll turn out absolutly amazing when we are done with it .

pics and video are my next updates, so cross your fingers, they should be good.

Tell me, if you were at the ITR expo at VIR, you must've met some of my friends that came all the way down from Montreal in a 00 Red Civic Coupe. Carl Wener and Vincent Basile... they were supposed to be coaching / instructing that weekend...
