5th time entrant, ruthlessly robbed of runs last year thanks to a set of flywheel bolts that decided they no longer wanted to be a part of the team after the 2nd run. So as with any good repair story, being unable to drive the car for a day My mind wandered to a dark place where after a brief conversation with a dealer, I upgraded the turbo to the latest Garrett offering, The flywheel was spoken to in the lathe and firmly fixed back in with the box before being bolted back on to the hub dyno. Meticulously caressed and fondled in the right areas, it's now over the 750 mark, with more work to come in January.
