Well I know for a fact that Flugplatz (sp) has killed plenty a GTR engine at the ring. I'm not so sure that a mere mortal like myself could reach the sorts of cornering speeds to casue oil surge on the ring, but i'm sure on a fast open UK circuit like Thruxton, it wouldn't be too hard. The question i suppose is HOW hard do you have to push to pass the cars limits?Luffy said:its a very valid question.
what i dont get and i am stupid so bear with me! all the people that hve gone to the ring over the past years, do all them have sump extensions and what bout the people who do the odd trackday, do they?
the last thing i want is for my engine to go bang but having to spend £2k for a sump extension just to get on the odd trackday makes me think twice bout my car
The actual sump extension is £300ish (I think) so that quote is £1700 labour which is 21 hours @ say £80 per hour !Luffy said:
yeah, so who gave you that quote? or is it a top secret?Pikey said:The actual sump extension is £300ish (I think) so that quote is £1700 labour which is 21 hours @ say £80 per hour !
3 hours to remove the engine, a further 1 to remove the sump plus say 3 hours to fit the extension and 1 to put it back on, 4 hours to put it back in the car and add another 2 hours in case something goes wrong = 14 hours labour.
Dont know where the other 7 hours went? I'm estimating here, but I cant see me being 50% out. I'll see what my brother thinks tonight
