As per in the today just bought file:

Here are some happy snaps of the car

Its got a Ford DFZ V8, rev limit is set at 12,000 RPM, motor has a 25 hour window until a rebuild, at 10,000 RPM that can be extended to 28-30 hours. Gearbox is Hewland H pattern, it runs 110 octane fuel and has AP carbon brakes and clutch, it possibly the last F1 that is simple. I looked at many models including the Williams collection that is being sold off, the last car sold was for 900,000 pounds but it was Damon Hill's Championship winning car. Also looked at turbo cars of the era but turbo is too unreliable, anything after say 1998 its gets complex and anything after 2010 is too difficult. This Lola has a Motec system hence data is easily acquired. Many of the middle 80-early 90's cars need DOS laptops for programming, good luck on finding someone who knows DOS (except Ash). Hoping its here by end of January and given is provenance will be admitted to next years AMF and Anzac Day Historics.

Err no, once bitten twice shy, this classic website sums up the mental giant of the illegal alien www.pless.com.au

Does that run a paddle pop sequential box or is it still "row your boat" manual change?

Is the guy who complained about your multiple entries going to be happy about this?

That will be challenging with a free reving F1 engine I should imagine. Watching the in cockpit video of Senna on the pole setting lap of Suzuka is pretty mind blowing with the speed of his gear changes with everything else going on:

Even worse at Monaco!

Miss a gear change and it would be pretty easy to blow the motor :eek:

I'm looking forward to hearing it. There is nothing like the sound of an F1 car from that era  :thumbsup:
