I have been to the regulars for tunes and with questions.
Nobody has the passion for tuning that Josh possesses

Diff refurb took an other direction, bought a proper race LSD to swap into the casing.

https://www.racingdiffs.com/collecti...33671153090695

But have decided on 30/60 ramps.

It's s custom setup, not just off the shelf. I had a 4 hour long conversation about what sort of track/race driving that I do and this is what was recommended.

As for ramp angles I can tell you that 50/65 ramp angles are most forgiving option and excellent choice for grip driving especially for less experienced driver, while 30/60 ramp angles provide аgressive lock on throttle, but soft on engine braking.

So for our car we've gone for a more aggressive race track setup.

Vanne!
This is no longer a build....it's a freaking replacement car!!!! The large amount of custom bits and custom fabrication are just incredible. Your package delivery staff must be on a first name basis by this point.

We can't wait for The Beast to be on-track.

Lol thanks Bruce.. it's been a long time in development, and parts gathering began over 2 years ago lol..

I appreciate the nice words mate.


And then we started with the race dash...

Really happy with how that turned out. Just roughed it in at the moment, will need to sort out the gauges and panel fitment.

I have some ideas on that, but will need to flesh that out.

Van, have you thought about having your wiring harness thinned and reworked? We have a guy here in the US that does a great job adding all new fittings and can add custom options.

I removed pretty much all of the wiring harness thats not required to be there. id say about 2 kgs of wires came out. The loom that runs from the back to the front is about about a cm thick now, including the power lead. i might have a pic somewhere..

(Old diff case, barns new everything inside)

Gear paint.

Looks pretty good





backlash set.

Really looking forwards to this hooking up.

Temp sensor plumbed into the case.

Running in will be very easy hardly no load 20 minutes, then cool down 30 mins, another 20 mins at low load, then another 30 mins cooling and then 30 minutes at medium stick. Then 30 mins cool, and then 20 mins at full stick, then swap oil and done.

I mounted the Turner rear monoball bearings today. That was a spot of getting it just right to fit.

Do you still have the wiring or threw it out ?
That can make a nice artwork in a frame for your garage
