Minginator - its Alive.

Thought I start another thread for those who dont want to read 1500 posts.

Or i can merge everything into 1

Anyhows, a small milestone today, I actually sat in the Minginator, adjusted the seat, sterring wheel, rear view lowered all the windows, adjust the gonads and grabbed the Key.

Yep, off to Aux, zzzzzzzz (fuel pump kicks off) then to on... A couple quick turns and she roars into life.....

Nothing is like the note of dual 3 inch exhaust thumping in a enclosed environment of the workshop, or the sound of that blower and sucking in air at 1000revs, quick touch of the throttle to 2000 revs twists the car and shreeks absolute power, deff not a sleeper.

Well thats it for the 1st start in 18 months... the body parts are on as per the pics later on tonight, and its just a matter of getting motec out to do some live tuning.

Aim date at this stage is the Victorian fpvxr club meeting on tuesday night the 6th July 2004.

I have requested to be present for the live tuning, in the back seat, and a couple of towels, it should be sweet.

Re: Minginator - its Alive.

Fitting name for the new thread....it is finally actually alive again. It has had the defribulator treatment, and is ticking again...ready to actually learn to walk all over again. I will stop with the bad puns now.

Would you like to change your name to Homer Junior? People can call you Hoju.
