Well, we did the big push over the weekend and after a long delivery, a
snorting, bouncing blue S2 rally car was born! I was working on it from
1 PM yesterday, until 5 AM this morning. The car was subsequently run
around the parking lot, shooting flames from the side mounted exhaust,
and loaded into a race trailer to drive 4 hours to Steamboat Springs,
CO. With luck it is now happily bouncing off of snow banks.
We dealt with the usual teething problems of a freshly assembled race
car, but all in all it went remarkably smoothly. There were a couple
of wiring errors on the dash (no, I didn't do that part, but had to
clean it up) that gave us some fits for a while and resulted in a blown
ECU at 3 AM. A minor oil leak on the turbo return line, some sticky
suspension components that made alignment fun, and a few other little
odds and ends to clean up. We had hoped to get it on the dyno for some
tuning before it went, but no such luck. Here is a picture. The
picture accurately portrays my view of the car a 4 AM.
Damn, I'm tired...
