Quick update ... Billet block testing has been done , and tested in 35deg heat at Wakefield park this week . By all accounts it is proving slightly different in the noise it creates, just a lot more "solid". Was tuned @ 23 psi for a staggering 364awkw on a run in tune ....e85 . Displacement is at 2.5 litres , whereas my billet block is at over 2.7 . Very excited to see these results . And also it is being run with a S6 Sequential
Check it out on YouTube under Hulk billet block . sheet is going to get real for next season , looking forward to it .Jason Wright and a few of the Men up in Sydney are very interested in bringing the cars down for one of our rounds , preferably Phillip Island.... So will be informing most when that will occur .

Just re-read this thread, remembering all the big names with cars in the build that were to be soon out on the track (back in 2013!!!). We're almost 3 events into the 2015 season and they all seem to have gone missing!

Tony, cliff, bumblebee, pip jones, Paul, ricksta, Dane, hodgey, blotto, grantdlr, and I'm sure there's others. Lots of pretty piccies but not much racing!

What's taking so long?!

Are you starved of competition Tim?

Not sure if it was a big build Darren but I remember reading you saying something like "the big guns are coming back soon. Car being built specifically and legally for sprint class".
Assumed you were talking about your car....?

My POS is ready to race, was meant to be at PI next weekend, but family commitments have got in the way.

Just struggling to find time/motivation to get to the track.

And in the foreseeable future I won't be racing with in the wrxclub events due to not being able to forecast my spare time for the year.

Hey Tim
Yeah .... I would be one of those culprits . It's been fairly frustrating , but car is now in Melb getting the job done that was promised before Xmas .the biggest problem is that when you get promised to have a job completed and nothing eventuates.... It just gobbles up time . To find like minded people is , when you have a build as complex as mine ..... Is real hard . Some are just too busy and I loved their honesty , then u move to " next " I actually called the supplier , and they pointed me in RTR direction and so far so good ..... :clown: It has oil in it fuel .... Yep so once wiring is done , at Road Track Rally , we should be ohhh so close . It has to be going by months end as we have an invitational event in Sydney ( will be close ) then off too Winton with you guys . ......then it's off to Topstage after subinats for a custom V3 splitter wing diffuser ... All the sheet and giggles .. Freddy is onto it and will be sorting that out shortly after Easter .
But the billet engine , Freddies carbon fibre work will most likely not be ready as it just takes heaps of time ( let alone $$) to get this right , for WTAC , which the entry will be sent off after the 6th , and entered in Open class . punk
It's been 4 long years now , heaps of hours , along with a truck load of cash . But don't worry guys . Believe me the wait will be worth it . Particularly once the billet engine arrives .
