All ready for testing

May 16, 2011 update on grahamb's 1983 Ford Fiesta XR2 Mk1

All done. Loaded up on the trailer, and just need to book myself in at NHM for a suspension setup, and a couple of hours on the dyno to see how much more we can squeeze out of the standard engine. Now the rod bolts have been changed, I’m less concerned about caning it. And since I cured the overheating problem, we can keep running without having to let it cool down between sessions.

Time to send off my championship registration, get some tyres ordered, and send off a few cheques for events.
