04' mk2 BA ute 554rwkw

Recommended Posts

I finally have the brakes all bolted on and bled, stopping on a dime. but unfortunately the Work Emotiion 18" rims didn't leave more than 0.25mm clearance, so they had to go. I fitted up 19x9's, and 19x9.5 mustang rims, offset is way off being +52.5mm for the rear and +45 on the front, so for the moment im running 35mm bolt on spacers on the rear, and 20mm's on the front till I have a more permanent fix.

***Money pit update***

All new alloy 3" v-banded intercooler piping, cost a fortune but no more intercooler piping blowing off

being a ute, traction is non existent on the street even with radials on, trying to get used to the acceleration at the track is an awesome learning curve. Willowbank had the hot rod and nostalgia reunion on that weekend, so in the 5.5hrs I was there, only got 4 runs. 1st run - 132mph (red lit with a transbrake fault), 2nd run - 11.0@140mph (left off the foot brake without boost), 3rd run - 10.3@139mph (3000rpm launch, short shifting through the gears), 4th run - 12.2@141mph (3750rpm launch, blazed the tyres,, pedaled 5 times).
