It died, on track, again!

Track day at Castle Combe back on May 8th 2017 saw another engine failure! Other than that the car performed fantastically well, power and gear ratios spot on, handling balance with the new B14 kit and Compbrake topmounts and their respective geo and ride heights – spot on too. Very adjustable, rotating nicely on trail braking and the diff hooking up well etc, couldn’t have been more pleased….until! I basically forgot to check the oil level all day and right at the end of the day I got starvation around Folly and spun the bottom-end! Total idiot and expensive lesson to learn, but won’t be making that mistake again!
HOWEVER, on stripping down the engine it is clear that my old friend detonation had been savagely having it’s way. Whole engine is basically scrap and for now no immediate plans to “build” another high power engine…
