    For next season we need to fit your car with proper and accurate Zeitronix sensors, wideband AFR, alarms for coolant temperature end EGT plus engine data logging. With properly set alarms you do not need to watch gauges.Also, it's so much easier to diagnose any potential problems when you can review a data log.


    Ha! OK this gets put into the Dealer thread now

    Make room for more decals. Sounds like another factory sponsor is on board for next season, Robert.

    I've got more pics. etc....
    Thank god for eye-phone and an extra battery pack.

    Will have more time when I get off work to post....


    However,
    Compression is even 160 all the way across and leak down 1%<.

    Going to make a few baseline pulls and see where we are at...

    For weight, buy the Exige.
    For handling, buy the GT3.
    If you are looking for all three, buy the Noble. "

    The Race.

    First, right behind the pace car is infamous Mustang. Mustang stared smoking on a formation lap and blew up on lap 1.
    The second one "Orange" had no chance:

    The car is so reliable and Robert is driving smoothly, so after lap 8, Hoovers attention turned into noble forums. Notice Robert's Noble in a far back ground.




    But then came the checker flag!

    LOL!!!!!! Thanks for all the photos Ziggy and all the support.
    I was logging his track times and Robert was consistant to .2 on almost every lap. The SP car that won overall is 5 seconds faster, but part of the reason is power, slicks etc.... since Robert has decided to move up the class, we've got a lot of work ahead of us.

    It's always great to meet new people, especially from the forum, it makes our jobs exciting!!!! Ziggy is the new owner of a Q1 an avid track driver!!!!
    He caught wind of what was happening and made it a priority to help us out. When he asked me what we needed, he meant that in every sense. He brought us lunch, drinks, shirts, clothing, awning, chairs and tools if we wanted. Jimbo and I had everything under control the best we could, but we greatly appreciate the effort that he went through.
    It was really great to get out of truck stop shirts and wear the Zeitronix colors, we looked much more professional.

    A HUGE thanks to you, Ziggy!!!! You da man!!!!
