Hi Guys
I found the colour but not the code , the colour is azure silver but I know my painter played with the formulation to get it right . Hope this is of some help .

The engine is now at the builders to have another strip down and crack test , will get new rings,valve springs and bearings while apart , after all it has done 20 hours ! with about 15 hours of that racing Smile

I have been doing a bit of testing of both rally cars, so will post some interesting findings soon.

Cheers

Cheap insurance , the result of getting it wrong at 10k rpm would not leave many expensive useful parts !

Are you ever tempted to do a different engine? I have 175WHP in my 20v (NA), and are tempted to go bigger.

The whole idea of building this car was to keep it period correct , to up size or change manufacturers of its engine would make it just another ae86 .

Did you ever find those corner weights? I am really curious what it all adds up to on a nice AE86.

A wheel to steer the front of the car
A pedal to steer the rear

Well I should start another tread called "does my car look fat in that!!"
I have some interesting results from my other two rally cars on the scales.



Here are the corner weights of my N2 car ,

LF = 234.5 kg RF = 235.5kg

LR = 208.5kg RR = 211.00 kg

Total 889.5 kg with 40 litres of fuel + 9 litres of oil
