Get off the pavement!

Rally TN next weekend

Postby WideFNopen » Sat May 17, 2008 12:33 am

Anyone that wants to come can ride with my service if you would like.

I will be running the 165 on tarmac settings, 20 PSi, R compound tires, #10 pads, and the DMS low and tight. I have just over a degree and a half of negative camber with the rest set to stock. Since this is my fisrt tarmac rally in an All Trac any sugestions on the setup would be much appreciated.

I Had a grreat time at RTN athough I DNFd. THe fuel pump went out on stagee seven and ended my rally. I also had someissues witht the bov connnection popping of and causing us to pull over on three different stages but we got that fixed at the first service.

I was seeded 22nd and then after the first stage reseeded to 17th. From there I was reseeded again to 10th. On stage five I set the 3rd fastest time which was about to reseed again to the top 3-5. I think that many people on the rally community had forgotten exactly what an All Trac is capable of, mabey they were thrown off by the lack of carbon fiber...

Next rally is rally WV where I hope to compete for an open class win.

Here are the results. We are car number 22.

The roads in this part of TN are so perfect for European style rally that I have to post a couple pics of them:

howd you do in the rally?

i know its over, but for what its worth, my dad has an Escort RS Cosworth set up for tarmac, and i know its different suspension , but he runs almost 4.5degrees negative camber on the front and about 1.5-2 on the back. (for more drift mybe?)and thats according to ford motorsports handbook for WRC tarmac stages. and he runs about 30-35psi with r compound tires

Haha, thanks for letting me borrow the GTS wheels durin gthe shake down too. Also, that tire recommendation was awsome. The Dunlop Starspecs were a great tire choice!

Yeah I tink I was a little light on the camber but I am going to move it to a solid -2.0 for the next tarmac event and hope for a little more even tire wear, they wore too much on the outside for me with the present setup. I was also running 30 Psi tire pressure, 20psi was my boost pressure :wink: .

If you click on the results link I am at the very bottom, car number 22

I will go ahead and detail the stages:

Stage1- First run, everything felt good and was just kind of taking it easy and feeling the car out since it was my first time driving this car hard on pavement.

Stage2- Was going good and a lot faster then 1 until the t-hose connection to the blow off valve blew off. We fixed the problem on the side of the stage and then continued.

Stage3- The BOV connection popped off again, twice. We finished the stage after two stops.

Stage4- I ran the car at half throttle to finish the stage with no stops for the BOV.

Service- Fixed the BOV connection problem and topper her off with gas.

Stage5- We were on fire that stage. I felt that I had a handle on the Tracs handleing and was begining to press on her a little. We were 3rd fastest on this stage which shocked the hell out of everyone.

Stage6- We were going for another fast run until the codriver got a little lost in his notes and we had to back off quite a bit until he could find his place again. We were 5th fastest on this stage.

Stage7- I was feeling this stage, it was fast and my kind of drive. I felt that we would have really pulled hard on this stage but the fuel pump took a crap 3.5 miles into the stage. Good thing I was coming down a hill in a braking zone when it went out. I blipped the throttle to catch my next downshift and set up for the over crest R three minus and there was nothing, engine barley idleing. We were towed off stage by a Galant VR4, the fastest tow I have ever gotten.

To top off the cone with a cherry my best freind/service crew cheif forgot to latch the trailer correctly before he towed the 15 miles to pick me up. When we rolled the car on the trailer it popped off the ball hitch and destroyed the doors on my van. :doh:

Now I have installed the new fuel pump on a switch with seperated Hella relay setup and I fixed the BOV connection with a brass fitting and quality clamps. I am also working on installing a swirl pot for the upper rad hose and a pump to circulate coolant when I turn the engine off for 10 minutes. I am also switching to evans coolant. Hopefully that will have her ready for WV at the end of next month.

I will post more pictures of this rally as they come in.

I am not sure when I am going to tow out there. Maybe sometime next year.

As of right now my rally schedual, unless I get a sponsor in the meantime, is Rally WV, then Rally NY, and the Sandblast again. Hopefully I will fit more in but those are the forsures that I will do every year for now.
