In reply to # 3590722 by Steve64B Mark,

I just watched an in-car video of Kiesel testing a Giken differential... I'm pretty sure the sound of all the slamming and crashing in the video is the differential opening and closing. What are you running in the B?

That must have been last year because he runs a Cusco now. I had an Eaton TruTrac (Torsen) last year and this year switch to a Variloc (clutch style).

I hope your "invisible" spoiler gives you more invisible downforce!!

I just saw this and thought about the pictures of the rotary powered Midget you posted... evidently John Li had an interesting Nationals!?!

Yeh, John Li drove like an outta control mad man but some say he doesn't drive that way back home so I don't know what the deal was. I replaced the tubing from turbo to engine in order to take off a few pounds.

Been pulling my hair out ever since I made the new intake tubes out of aluminum because the car wouldn't run properly, but I finally found the problem

Hey Mark, after seeing your wiring I have never been happier having my stone age SBC, cable from throttle pedal to Holley hp dp, press and go. I am really impressed that you can deal with it, I can see that you are real close to having a REAL monster there. Awesome Job-------------------------------------------------------Chuck

I was just saying to some old school car guys yesterday that "If I had a small block Chevy with a carb and a dizzy, this thing would be running already". The wiring is a nightmare, I'm going to do my best to clean it up but wires are going everywhere!

It took only 14 hours to re-do the wiring and make it nice

Thanks, electrical is my weakest area (except maybe for my Tig welding) and I dreaded the whole thing but after watching the Bad Obsession Motorsports guys do outstanding work on their Mini project, I decided that I have to up my game. Watch these guys, you won't regret it. https://www.youtube.com/user/badobsessionmsport/featured

I've been going through your thread, pretty much looking at every fourth or fifth page as there's SO much to take in. I see that you went through a bit getting the front air dam/spoiler/shelf to your liking and most recently change out the rear spoiler entirely for one raked at a more upright angle. I was wondering at what speed do you feel these modifications "kick in?" How fast are you going before you can actually feel/experience the benefit of these? Thank you, Rob—
