  • Thanks V8armchair. I'm getting the car re-prepped now. It's a slow process with little extra time. My garage is completely snowed in and has no heat so I haven't been pushing hard. I bought new clutch disks and had the flywheel refinished. That's the big winter project. (including a big cleaning)

    This is a video from Climb to the Clouds (Mt Washington Hillclimb) last summer.

    • Hi Everyone. I'm still alive. The car is in a very slow prep process for Climb to the Clouds 2017 and it will be better than ever. The car is nearly a runner right now but needs a new oil cooler installed (it didn't have one before) I worked with C+R engineers last year to develop a new radiator for the car after it got too hot at the last CTTC. This new radiator will likely more than double the heat dissipation of the old radiator. I'll also finish ducting the coolers, retune on the new-ish Life Racing F88R ECU and do some nice details while I have time. Since some of the old photos are dead I thought I'd add some new ones to the thread. Thanks for all of the views and comments.

          • It's been a long time guys. I dug the car from the garage this winter to begin prep for a big hillclimb we have here in New England at Mt Washington. The preparation was worth it. I was able to finish second to Travis Pastrana in our class (unlimited) As a result there are a lot of photos I can share. Many of the photo links are dead now because I left flickr after their privacy breach. I've started a new album and will share the link. Here's an in-car of the run.

            I've started an instagram account for the car @pleasureevo also which is current.

            Thanks

                • Finally, a link to an interview I did with a friend with a walk-through of the car. Now everything is up to date. I might go back and delete some of the old posts of mine here that have dead photo links.

                  • Wowa that hill is huge. Most of our hillclimbs in the UK are 60 - 110 seconds!

                      • Hi everyone back from the abyss with some more stuff to share. Mt Washington could not have gone better. I finished 2nd in class behind Travis Pastrana. My friend and videographer Nick Czerula was there to document the whole week and it made it onto Jalopnik. Here's the link if anyone would like to watch the short film.

                        I've been working on some other projects at home lately and not racing too much. I have a Sti Version 1 on order from Japan that I hope to crack into this winter. It'll be a all-standard restoration and serve as a street car. All the best guys. I hope everyone is well.
