Well it's taken some work. I was very nervous with the first start up close. Having put many hours hand building the motor all I wanted was oil pressure and for it to run. What a great day it's b

Had a great day at PI on Saturday. On this run Greg Keene who runs in the touring car masters passed me on the straight on our fist flying lap. I tried to stay with him. But once his slicks warmed up

Just to show you aero , defuses wings and slicks, you can still come unstuck. As always pushing the car for the magic lap requires exploring the limits of grip. I've been over Lukey Heights many times

Well I finally mounted the motor and gear box this weekend.. That’s  probably the easiest part.  I spent a lot of time putting the wiring harness and all plugins in the best possible positions. The headers as you can imagine take up a lot of engine bay room and some wiring is difficult to run.  The next couple of weeks I’ll try and fit up tail shaft,  exhaust system,  steering column and all the other accessories.

So I thought reading though some threads it’s hard to put it all into perspective what’s going on.

 A few short videos may make it easier to see what’s going on. So I’ll do my very amateur best to put some together.

First one while it’s on the hoist ,  is what’s been done down under (underneath)

Hey Gordo,

The video attached in this post is quite large and causing some background task issues for the community software. When we have the Christmas BBQ let's chat about this in person. Even though we are now using Cloud storage which has done away with some limits on file sizes it looks like video has the potential to just be too large for what the website server is capable of handling (in short term memory).

Long story short, I'd recommend uploading this content to Youtube and then publishing a link here (embedded) video into the forum thread for best results.

PS: None of this is your fault or anything done wrong, just something to do with our infrastructure limitations. :).

So the LS is going and I’m loving the extra power. Had a few track days now, Nov and Dec 2020. Still getting used to the power and gearbox. The gear ratios aren’t ideal , but with lots of taqué you car get around it. The last run this year was at Phillip Island. Where else haha.  Was a Porsche and msca combined club day. Take a look at some of my in car video. The car always handled quite well. But the extra power takes it to the next level. And the sound is awesome.

Sounds awesome and looks like bags of fun!! You must be stoked Gordo  

Were there any Porkas that could keep you honest on the day?

it looks like some were quick but not as confident through the corners. 

Yer spot on Cozza. A lot of the Porsche guys are gentlemen racers and gave me plenty of room.    great cars straight from factory. I’m sure with committed drivers I would be moving over for them. I was third fastest out of 140 cars. One guy in a GT3RS was 5 seconds quicker.  Was so much fun.
