The fuel system has been modified to be safer as well as being much faster to refuel. There is now a 2" Ball Valve in the trunk that flows directly into the stock tank, allowing much faster fuel transfer from our modified fuel jugs. This alone allowed us to get our pit stops down to less than 45 seconds with a driver change. System was inspected and approved by Safety before installation (by John Pagel) and at the safety inspection.
Has completed 6 races, and placed 8th overall at the Texas World Speedway race. It's a great handling and fast running vehicle that is comfortable and easy to drive!
During the last race, we had an engine failure. Not sure exactly what went wrong, but one of the pistons lost a bit of metal and the engine chewed it up. Right now the easy way to get this car back on the track is to grab a 4.6 Modular and throw it in, easy weekend job. The PI heads are included, so that option is there for you (the ECU is currently tuned for PI heads on 93 octane). This car is extremely quick, and I was never a good enough driver to unleash its potential.
