:smile: ...

Hey, those air fuel ratios look like the engine is electronically fuel injected. With the SUs on my TR3, the A/F ratio always goes rich when I let off the throttle.

But its pure Weber power:

Are those the 48's Kas sent you? I chatted with him about them this week!

Sounds fantastic, Chris! Do you have standard ratios in that gearbox or a close ratio second?

It is a Bastuck close ratio dogbox which fits to the stock housing.

You certainly have some nice bits in that car! I have enjoyed the in car videos you post- I used to be active on FoT but no longer competing.

Thank you for that. I try hard to make boring racing videos more entertaining.

I try to maintain most of the stock equipment to keep the Kastner racing spirit alive. But some parts has to be replaced for reliability reasons.
I'm not the kind of guy who order the racing stuff catalog pages up and down.

The car did do very well last year so I'm completely nuts to do so many changes for this season without knowing where this is going.
