If you have seen any of the Racecar Series Videos, you know that we have been working on fixing massive vacuum leaks throughout the intake system. We also found that the engine’s head needs work, so the head was removed and now sits at our local machine shop to be cleaned up. In the meantime, we have sense replaced the rear differential with a limited slip differential. There was gearing issues in the old one that was ultimately hindering our lap time.
After having fixed the rear end, our track time has improved slightly but until we get the head work done, the intake and carburetor setup changed around. The track time won’t be where it should be.
We have done some cosmetic work. The car now has a face! We put the nose on the car and have made adjustments to fit the old hood as well.
There is still a lot of work to be done, however, we need to get the wheel lug pattern corrected so we can run 8” wheels for maximum grip around the track. The car also needs that all important paint job and decal placement.
Our driver, Jon Roberts AKA Fozzy, has been great to work with through the entire process and we are excited to see what will come of this race season. His knowledge is incredible, as you would expect from a 2 time NASCAR champion in the Mini Stock Division at Evergreen Speedway.
Episode 5 of the racecar was shot in 360 degrees to give you an interesting look into the car and the process of fixing our issues. Jon and Alec discuss some of the issues and what we are doing to fix them. It has been a fun process of filming and editing for this video and we hope you all enjoy it.
