Ford Capri RS 2600 Cosworth V6 dyno crash failure
See more at https://www.facebook.com/CapriRS2600
Partial throttle runs for fuel mapping. Dyno was set to sweep
1000-7000rpm in 18 seconds. Limiter at 6450rpm. Crash at 5400rpm most
likely due bad conrod bearing.
Highlights of season 2013:
Season 2014 races:
330bhp MGB V8 v 540bhp Evo @ Silverstone Trax 2012.f4v
330bhp MGB V8, (980kg) Having fun with a very fast 540bhp (1200kg) evo.
First test of my new rear wing and front splitter. Very Positive results.
Fast turn oversteer has been virtually eliminated while top speed is hardly
affected. I can carry more speed in the turns without the back end stepping
The evo has a lot more straight line speed so was impressed with my little
Oh and Gavin was slowing me down in the passenger seat LoL.
Impressed with overtaking the Noble, that thing should fly.
I could have dived down the inside of the little Vauxhall but decided to
just let him know I was there by showing a front wheel, so was dissapointed
when he blocked me down the straight.
Fat Capri Cruising up the M40
Here I am cruising up the M40 driving nice and slow so my mate Colin can
grab this bit of video from Cliff's VW Camper! There's no truth in the
rumour that I'm keeping to the left of my lane to dodge bits falling off
the Camper :-)
The sharp-eyed among you will see I've removed the blower to make the car
more driveable - it may go back on when I have more time to fiddle, but at
the moment it's great to have a drive-anywhere car! Satin black paint is
new too. Long live Mad Max and the last of the V8 Interceptors.
Awesome V8-Powered Trabant!
This is my buddy Pascal in Wingene, Belgium (the Pig Capital of Belgium)
driving Marino's Trabant with a 4.5L Rover V8 stuffed into it, bucket seats
and complete roll cage and a turbo 350
Transmission. Pascal was unable to do a burnout but check out me on
another vid- I know how to do it. This little thing is insane. Pascal from
Looney Art did the body/paint work, he's the best in Belgium!
1966 MGB with a Rover V8 - Episode 1 - The "Slipped Liner"
Ken Smith of Kenzmyth Productions takes a turn as talent in the short video
of what to look out for in the early Rover V8 engines with possible
"slipped liners", also known as inserts or sleeves. His 1966 MGB V8
conversion project developed this problem necessitating the removal of the
Rover 3.5 liter engine and trashing of the aluminum block. Enjoy!
