Car Prep Updates

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

The preparation of the new golf is progressing. This last weekend, we started installing the rear brakes, working on wiring, and installing the engine.

We hit a bit of a snag when the engine was dropped into the bay. The dual-reservoir brake system was installed and mounted for the 8 valve engine that was installed previously. The 16 valve engine we are installing would not fit in the bay with the distributor cap on. The choice was to re-engineer the entire brake set up or go to a distributorless system. The latter choice won out in the end.

Pictures might be on the way, but the camera was having difficulties, so they might not turn out. We’ve added some mock ups of our wiring harness diagrams to the prep gallery if you’d like to check those out.

There is a slim chance that Don will be guest co-driving in the Doo Wop Rally, however the whole Demon Rally family and some guests will definitely be attending to work a couple stages and do our part to help keep our rally community strong. Be sure to say hello if you see us out there!

Two quick updates.

Work over the weekends continues as we get closer to our first event in the new car. We’re adding a healthy amount of carbon fiber to the mix in the new car, as well as our usual dose of aluminum fabrication.
