Shit happens

Posted in Allmänt/ General on september 16, 2014 by 50split

I’de never guess this would happen to me….. I dropped the engine on the E4 last week!!!!
Some of the prev. owners made their own rear mount of the engine and gearbox… He was no weldingman…. This happen only 2days before the local vw meet. Bad luck!

Have not show´n this nice piece yet.

Its a Fageol Pepco supercharger that I traded from the UK this summer. It is a project, but the most of the parts were there!
Pepcos are reproduced by Speedwell USA (http://speedwellusa.com/) but this supercharger is the real deal, an old one, but with some missing parts that are reproduced through Ray at Speedwell USA.  I will run this supercharger on the zwitter, and hopefully I wiill be able to run it next weekend at a car-show in my town. If not, then I hope for testing it the next weekend, when we have the annual vw meeting in my town (dasvw.se)

First race will be at the Bergrennen  #10 in Norway, 27/9!  (http://gmundbrokerage.blogspot.se/)

I have had some help with the supercharger, both laser-cut an aluminum plate for the back of the supercharger, and machined it down, by another friend, so it would fit the charger-body.  Hopefully this will run smooth and powerful up the hill!

SCC no 3 Flügplatz Schmuts Rennen

Posted in Allmänt/ General, Dagens bild/ Picture of the day, Old Speed, Racing, Resor/Trips, Träffar/Meetings on augusti 25, 2014 by 50split

 

Now we are at the best part of the SCC, the Flügplatz Schmutz Rennen. This year the team behind the renn, made a night course at friday night, and the day course at saturday.

The night stage we gathered at 9PM and went in two groups in five and  five. We had a transportstage in ca 15km, then we were at the starting-point of the SS. we sould find 12 reflexes during the the ca 10km long track. Then we just did a 180 degrees turn, and went the same road out again. This was a really fun stage, and during the stage me and Henke really appreciated the 3 marchal in the front of the OT 60 and the map reader-light, and the really  useful hand searchlight. The light saved us many times!! Fun stage, that we were able to let flat out in some gears, but it was risky, due to we passed some small bridges wo railing, so, if you didnt pass at the center you did risk to run down in the lake….

Any how, on the reflexes there were 9 letters, that would make a word. We got some leads about the word.

Henke was a super perfect co driver, often with head up  literally….. Head through the car, searching for reflexes! Grate time!!!

The saturday was a non flat out, ideal-time, run, with a limit to not be able to go faster than xxx sec.

I think thats booring, but, thats their thing, and I know the Norwegian racing organization is not to happy about these kind of races, thats why we are not able/allowed to run flat out….

We had a fun time, and Henke run the first run at SS2, and I run the second run. Much fun. All cars run a pre run to get to know the track. During this pre run I was out and took some photos. NICE!

NOW, the pictures!
