New & stiffer springs for the blue Imp

New & stiffer springs for the blue Imp

The first of our primary engines has been run-in and set up on the dyno, courtesy of local guru Finn Motor. Everything has gone to plan after a somewhat exstensive rebuild after it so nearly was destroyed last year. In addition to building up the engine from scratch with machined & prepped parts, a different set of Dellortos have been overhauled and set up, so we know everything is working as it should out of the box.
It delivered the figures we expected, so now it’s a case of getting rid of some driver-rust and front-wheel drive fetish, and we’ll see if we can give the Minis some chase.

Next up is the engine run briefly in the Yellow machine, it’s in the dyno as I write, and hopefully the missing 25% of power & torque will have been found.

Other goodies for the cars are new springs and setting up the brake balance properly.

Can’t wait for the season to begin!
