as per my previous post, the carb rebuild and smaller air corrector did allow for some boost adjustment, think its at about 12psi now, and it runs much better not to mention it ticks over better and uses less fuel (the mixture screw snapped in the original carb and the last owner wound it all the way our so was mega rich on idle

(some people aye

Not related at all but what language is this?

root@renault5gtt~]# echo "if you cant fix it" ; init 6 ; echo "it"  

init 6 i understand to be restart/reboot? but the sentence doesn't make sense to me?  :?

its geeky bash
a linux guru once said to me if you cant fix it , init 6 it (reboot it)

i took what he said an attempted to run it as a command ;)

run it in a linux terminal as root and it will reboot your machine (on some versions)

and yes the mobile rolling road with the leaf blowers, i don't think they'd keep a reliant robin kool at 2000rpm

(dyno dynamics i think 35grand bit of kit, have been considering asking the bank for a business loan with one of my buddies to buy one to start my own rolling road and work with megasquirt  management but its alot of effort and there are already a few rolling roads in my area and i didnt fancy filing for bankruptsy in 6 months haha  )

There was a saxo vtr with vts engine which made a very optimistic 138bhp after 7 runs haha

the drifting competition was pretty cool lots of noisey powerful jap cars and what looked like a old rs1800/2000 mexico probably cossied also doing really well and an old bmw

picked up some zetec arp bolts for 50quid from one of the stands lots of grim show girls there zombies with cellulose orange peel like legs blerg?

i didnt get many pics as i left the camera in the car and only had my crapberry i'll upload them here excuse the random one's =]

trax was good today however dissapointed with the weather,

i was all ready for the first track session of the day when the heavens unloaded and made the first race a washout, there was people spinning off everywhere and i couldn't see s**t,

it was more of a sight seeing session than a track session,

first lap was with a safety car so limited to 60 or 70 (i dont know my speedo doesnt work)

second lap was a safety lap as 3+ cars spun off, by time it was the third lap and i was ready for some ""racing"" the session  was over, i should bought some more sessions

it looked like i was one of few R5's down there today did't see many others,

appart from 2 headcases on the wayhome,

you probabaly know who you are..

white r5 gtt with fmic and flamer kit
red r5 gtt de locked, yellow cage


(i hope this makes its way onto the refurbed site somewhere wink wink)

as you can see the track was drenched

I am down witsomething park now, tethering the blackberry and netbook in a field camping haha near silverstone

I decided to bring the 5 and i'm taking it on the track for the first track session of the day, 9am, looks like i'm the only R5 on the camp site today and will probably be the only 5 on the track at that time also, so keep and eye out for me on the track, i might barry it on the first corner haha , the cars pretty standard so i expect i will probably get lapped haha, keep an eye out for me and the standard 5  H reg Red

its actually run less than standard boost due to the cup mod

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: Which clutch should I buy?
« on: 18:25, Wed 24 August 2011 »
I just fitted the Valeo clutch that comes in the green box

from mike @ R5 gt turbo spares it has a very heavy pressure plate it almost feels like a sport clutch as its just on/off

pretty good i think mike said its good for 220bhp ?

(however i dont know if it fits the rear engined 5's)
