Like in the Scottish highlands, I understand rallying is popular in the Welsh hills too, or is this going to be a pure track weapon?

Excellent work and so young!

Which charger kit are you using?

Is it one of Rich W's kits with a rotrex charger?

Not being funny but should the bores not be as smooth as possible or is that as they wear down??

Are you balancing all the rods and pistons up?

Someone on the coop forum managed to get his all within a few grammes of each other and did it i think by building the piston up as it would be on the car and then got the crank flywheel and clutch balanced up off the car as well, best way to do it i think.


Looking good so far though, all that wieght stripped out now put back in with the cage but im sure it will strengthen it more than enough :) what are you going to do to get rid of the over steer issues most 306's suffer from??

No, otherwise the rings won't get lubricated so well and fail to seal properly. That cross-hatch honing is still visible in my block of 116K miles :lol:

Ah so its like little cavities where the oil hides in as its sprayed up bore as the pistons is on its upward trip so that as it comes down its lubricated??

I would have thought this would create more friction against the piston rings though as its like sandpaper effectively is it not?

I don't know the exact science/design details but that sounds about right.
It does look like a file pattern, I never looked at it that way but I think the actual pressure of the rings against the walls is not so much and the angle of the cuts is slanted, reducing friction further. The fact the rings and bores take so long to wear bear this out.

that looks fun, glad to see you thought about it and put a cage in there instead of a harness on its own.

simply the lubrication from the cross hatch reduces friction.
