Topic: What exactly has been failing on the K-car lately?
As a fellow pentastar racer myself, I eagerly await race results expecting to hear about the mighty K-car domination... but am constantly met with disappointment. As a Detroit native, the Lions have me well seasoned on dealing with disappointment.
I am curious though, what keeps failing with the latest V6 power plant?
I've run the 6G72 Mitsu V6 in two races this year and have pretty horrible results. Overheating and detonation were the usual suspects. We eventually discovered a crack in a cylinder head that went clear across from the intake bowl into the exhaust bowl. We think this is our smoking gun with our overheating and detonation, but we're still eating rod bearings like they're going out of style.
Some teams replace brake pads and / or tires after the first day... we replace rod bearings.
So what has been failing for you guys / gals lately?
