Actually, koni does make uniball equipped shocks but they are double adjustable racing spec The 2800 series are the cheap end and pretty damn nice but I don't know what they cost off hand (probably not cheap).

Hopefully the m030 shocks work well for you, when I tried them on my lightened car I found they were too stiff.

Hi Deano,
Yes, pity indeed. There was plenty of time on sunday, but a very large compound and a lot of people there as well



Tnx for the kudos! It was fun and thats what its all about.

I may probably not go to either as the family needs some quality time now and then too...

I did video the one run alone in the car on saturday that should have been thé one, but the higher boost caused spark blow-out as far as I could tell from the log, so I rather not post it
Birdman did tape up his video camera in the car for our passenger run but it may take a while before he can put that online as he's not back in aussie land for a week or so iirc.

This is what happens if you run into the 'hard-cut' rev limiter:



Some of you may recognise this phenomenon from my previous encounter with the hard-cut; yes, this already happenend before...
This time I wanted to test flat-foot-shifting, so soft-cut was lowered a lot and hard-cut set at the same rpm distance from the soft-cut, about 600 rpm.

This will never happen again now, as I will now set the hard-cut 2000 rpm or more away from the soft-cut. The cure is apperently worse then the problem it tries to prevent...

Ouch.

I hope that rocker was the only component damaged, and nothing else was hurt.

Was this the same exhaust rocker (same valve) where the break happened previously ?

Mee too, I very much think nothing else was hurt, but not verified yet.

Can't remember, it is the same bank though, but that question suggests something that isn't there imo. The cause is violent rpm-cut, it could have happend at either cylinder imo.

Damn, again? What kind of pushrods are you running and how long were you on the hardcut? I've spent a few seconds on the hard cut (500 rpm between soft @7500 and hard @8000) on longer straights so I'll have to watch that
