Re: the Steinard MK3 takes shape

I stand corrected John, It appears the low "C" is only on the front of the M8Fs and the front and sides of the M20s. The earlier cars have the High "C". Leon

Re: the Steinard MK3 takes shape

The ole girl finaly made it to the dyno the other day, only got as far as tuning the mid range before a small whoopsie put and end to things, but so far at 4500 its making over 450hp and sounds great.
heres a short clip of the last pull before it all went pear shaped.

Re: the Steinard MK3 takes shape

John, that will certainly make itself known on the track, hope the whoopsie is not too much of a drama.
Cheers
Russell

Re: the Steinard MK3 takes shape

Hi Mate yep it will get his attention thats for sure, at 4500 its only just come onto the cam so theres plenty left in the cupboard.
whoopsie was a slight misconception in the torque loading on the trans, an extension to the lay shaft to carry a bearing was pressed on unsecured and it walked out. bugger, so its back over the ditch for a fix.
Cheers john

Re: the Steinard MK3 takes shape

Look up a book by William Milliken

Milliken Research Associates, Inc. -- "Race Car Vehicle Dynamics"

I’ll warn you now that it is not light reading, but you will come away well schooled!
