first testday broke some cv joints :D
cold weather, not tuned suspension and without launch and burnout it makes about 4s 0-100km/h

Cool engine. Can you ship them to the US...
You can get them in the USA... or a version. The short geared diesel trans not so much.

If there would be more than few persons interested I could look for engines like this and ship them to USA
This diesel box is not the best way under NA car because it makes 115km with 2nd and 183km with 3rd gear :D 6th would be 402km/h with tyre size I use and 7k rev limiter. Fortunately there are a lot of different boxes that can be used with that engine....Alot of ATM versions too

Thanks, Actually I'm sick of waiting to get it running. Last time I made a quarter mile pass was 5 years ago :lol:
Now I made it quick but because of the last event this year (next saturday) Then I will decide what to do next (turbo or nitro) for next year. I want to hit 12s this time, run constantly in 11s next year and try to hit 10s next year.
Coming winter brings me a new front axcel build because the testday showed me that it's not good for 200+ km/h

Thouse nice pics are here not without a reason.....1 film student visited me And we filmed my testday all day long and he will put together a little video of it. Unfortunatelly it takes some time because He wanted to film some more on this weekend.
