August 2008

New fuel lines are fitted, along with various other minor improvements, and I have the Patrol back this weekend for a shake-down. The roll cage modifications are all agreed, we just have to find the right material (38mm OD seamless carbon-steel tube). I’ve decided to install a 5 gallon air tank in the back to give me a reserve of compressed air, I have the pressure switch and installation parts – just need to buy the tank. This weekend we’re planning to take it out for a blat to see how the cooling stands up.

And we’ve finally settled on a team name – we are NewTrix Racing. I’ve been known as ‘Ian the Dog’ since forever – so now I’m an Old Dog, and these are definitely New Tricks.
Who let the dogs out?
