It's road registered Jason  :P

as are quite a few that are classified Sports Sedans, that have run at MP for years, ie Siddens!

Have a chat to Peter Herlihan up there, best to get you in the correct for car mds category, rather than have it changed md seadon, and lose pointscores!

Many years back I ran two cars ( not at same time) but both were same category and in same capacity section, well, didnt that uset one little wood duck! Took out the series class win! ( sheepstations,,,, sheepstations,,, as far as you can see,,,,,,)

It doesn't bother me if the Z is put into Sports Sedans, probably is a good idea to get it settled once and for all. Have you got peter Herlihan's phone number Jason?

Richo, he lives up your way, and is pretty active in WDSCC, try one f the contact the club numbers, they should he able to supply his number.
He'd only need to be told over the phone what mds etc, and he'll tell you straight away.
Guessing you'd be the only one in the "Over 5 litre SS" category, r at least very few!

Ya gotta get this thing running! Even f the TC isnt spot on, at very least, the following rounds, after a change f TC, you should see changes at dffering rpm to gear chang points, as it locks up for full drive.

It does have extra large pizza plates for rotors?
Only need them to settle/downchange for T1, but Gumtree and Siberia are a big stand on!

The converter's lock up clutch appears to be slipping on the dyno so that has to be sorted, very annoying because I specifically asked for a heavy duty clutch that would handle the power involved. The alternative to using the lock up clutch system would have been to use a low stall high efficiency converter similar to what the yanks use for circle track racing, these can get up to say 96% efficiency which means the slip ratio is 96:100 (or 100:96?) and results in less power wastage being converted to heat. However the lock up clutch system should be even more efficient losing power only in bearing, oil etc friction so cooler still.

 

Once a job like mine has to be put aside the question is then when can the guru get back to it? The cause of the problem has to be identified, parts ordered and so on, that's where time is wasted  :-[

Sup regs are out but I doubt that the Z will be race fit for the first round. However the car may be ready for testing by then so does anyone know if I can test on the Friday as someone registered for the series but not entered for that weekend?

If its ready for testing it's ready for sprinting......

 

A 20 minute test session will be more arduous than a 5 lap sprint.

 

The entry fee is bugger all in the overall cost and if it isn't ready, most organisers understand these things happen and you may get a credit to the next event if you pull the pin early enough.

Seeing that the lockup is cactus the transmission could well overheat if the converter is not suitable. It does need a test and tune too, particularly to see if it shifts OK at wide open throttle which has a programmed ignition cut and to see if the downshifts are smooth enough. 99% sure another converter will be required so a drive will give me some idea of what is required there too.

It will be a Z fest, the ZCCQ is organising a club run to MP too so there will be race and street Zeds there.

I think that there would be more Zeds doing door to door racing if there was a proper series for them to do so competitively, something like what the SCCA run as shown in the video I linked recently. Anyway, I have yet to experience more exciting motorsports as a spectator than when a bunch of Zeds get into it at the MP sprints, fast and furious is a pretty apt description.
