    The crazy hillclimb monsters you see in Europe are generally running radial slicks in super soft compounds. Not the kind of thing you just order from Tirerack.
    Was hoping to find out the wheels size/spec. Obviously I'm not buying race class tyres to do laps around a circuit for fun

    Both Avon and Michelin make dedicated hillclimb slicks. I think (but I'm not sure) that Dunlop and Goodyear make some as well.

    250/650x18 is one of the more common sizes for radial slicks: front tire size on the GT3 Cup car, for example. Closest DOT tire size would be 245/40-R18. Wheel size would be between 18x9" and 18x10" ideally.

    Looks like my next wheels will be 18x9/10... maybe 11 lol

    Anyways

    Small update. Got the driver side foot well completely cleared of gunk, next is deal with the rust hole, paint prep and paint

    You got alot of tubbing to do. Need to open up ALOT of room to fit that massive rubber

    That floor looks super clean though. Good job, I know cleaning that stuff is just awful...

    The floor has a bit of rust around the "drain" holes. And a few small holes around typical rust spots. I'll post pics after full clean, rust fix, paint prep and after paint

    Some update...

    I've started painting the interior


    Paint used



    Got an idea for the trunk,what it looks likes now


    I'll be making some cabon/kevlar/glass parts soon...

    I still have some rust hole I need to patch up, I haven't had time or resource the last few weeks, work has been very busy. Company hired inexperienced people to drill holes in $80M bizjets so I'm only at home to sleep.
    I will be getting another complete m104 engine, the one I have now will be lower compression so I can run higher boost and try to stay away from race fuel.
    New motor will stay at stock compression to get things running.
    Routing of wire harness has begun. I just removed the stock fuel rail wity injectors I will show how it compare to the turbobandit manifold and rail and what part are interchangeable
    I'm thinking a primer green color (like the royal air force used on thier spitfires and mustangs during ww2) for the trunk and engine bay semi - to full - gloss

    Where did you get the flywheel? Is it set for dual or single mass thickness?

    A 16v clutch will not hold all that power... Custom PP? Why not a multi disc clutch.

    you would be amazed what a 16V clutch can hold with the proper tweaks.

    Milti disc is great but why? Multi plate has to be made specifically for the intended use there is less give with those setups. They are expensive and very hard to modulate with a basic clutch/slave. Most cars now that utilize a multi plate are electronically controlled.

    I would say that too if I was trying to sell a flywheel. We'll hear about it when it slips with 500whp.

    I'd like to know what I need for my 16v fw to hold 500whp.

    Race Clutch setup!

    5 puck Iron disk
    2800psi pressure plate
    Set the release point with in 1mm from slip to grab by cutting the back crown to the proper specs.
    Willing to spend the money to get one made

    Keep in mind the stronger the clutch becomes you will sacrifice 2 things
    1. Clutch life due to higher friction rate.
    2. smoothness of how a stock clutch feels.

    If you want a smooth clutch to handle 500hp no such thing exists, you basically past the point of reasonable vs stupid.


    The main cause of slip are
    1. Heat
    2. Spring deflection
    3. Burnt material on the clutch disk

    if you solve those three things then you are golden.

    BTW it's not HP that kills clutches its torque! a motor making 500lbft at 3000rpm vs a car making 500lbft at 5000 will require different clutch setups.

    When you are serious about this let me know...
