    There's a tension screw build into the underside of the knob - I loosened it up real far for illustrative purposes. Also, it won't trigger unless the TPS is >80% in the future but for shits and giggles I thought I'd show everyone how it works.

    It is NOT a strain gauge, just a pair of microswitches inside a sprung knob. Still class legal =)

    Knob was about 300 bucks, and a decent strain gauge setup would be well over 1k.

    Shakedown complete. Transmission works, car makes power on moderate boost so she's good to go out and play on the 22nd. If I cared, and we had more time we could go for a big sexy number but why?








    Of course the EMS-4 wasn't saving logs, so we were tuning off the dyno plots which stopped recording at a much lower rpm than we ran. Didn't do too bad a job with the fueling, but you can see she's swimming in the top end. As luck would have it, the goddamn thing saved a log on the last pull.

    Here's what I mean:




    I'll clean it up at the track. Even at 25-26psi there's still some power left on the table but I'm not going to spend a ton of time messing with the 25psi tables. Just needed to see if everything was (finally) working properly.

    So it was ugly, but it's still the car's first 10. Couple blew off at about the 1000' mark, and then there were about 39 other problems that ultimately culminated in a broken axle for the 10.5 index final.





    Fuel pump relay quit at the top of 4th gear, and I thought at the very least I burned up a head gasket. Alternator wire got ripped off. Oil filter got taken out by what we later decided was a piece of axle tripod bearing. VSS didn't work, forcing the two-step to stay engaged. I went three passes trying to break the habit of holding the car in gear, which triggers the shift cut now. Pushed water out of the second unnecessary rad cap. Covered the engine in oil from an overfull catch can. TPS read 100% --> 0% in a spastic way, for no reason at all.

    You'd think these are all unrelated, but most of the problems stem from a bolt backing out on the lower front dog bone, causing the engine to twist... hard.

    Day #1 I needed cage certification, and didn't get out on the track until about 2:00. Day 2 we spent the whole morning tracking down an oil leak that turned out to be the filter, which we hadn't figured out came from axle tripod shrapnel.



    Apparently Brian's cage won't kill me. That's nice of him.



    Need to figure out how to load this thing up after I lower it. As of now, it barely clears the trailer.

    Going back out soon for a real, full test day.

    2-3 did not work well initially. In that video, you can see I clutched it manually for the shift just to get a pass under my belt.

    I angled the knob and thought it worked better, but eventually I gave up and hooked the cut up to the top clutch switch.
