“The car is a totally different animal now with proper aero” said Mark Berry “What we were struggling to keep on the track before, now feels quite conservative as the car sucks itself to the track and we could certainly make use of more power especially if it is in all the right places”
The R34 was back at CNJ Motorsport in Brisbane this week and was cranking out some very serious dyno numbers thanks to some fine tuning on E85 and a switch to a totally different turbocharger
“Spiro at Dragons Lair Motorsport in Queensland has jumped on board with support of the latest Precision Turbocharger direct from the USA” said Mark “and the first signs have been very positive, in fact we have made a gain of 70kw from our old combination. This is a fantastic result considering this is the first turbo size and combination that we have tried from the Precision range. The turbo produces very surprising results straight out of the box and we cannot wait to get it on the track. I would like to thank Spiro for his ongoing help to make even more improvements before we hit Eastern Creek in August”
Whilst we were made to promise we would not show the dyno graph we can tell you that though it produces a drag racing type horsepower figure at peak revs this 3 litre engine also appears to make buckets of power everywhere and certainly the Advan/Hi Octane team are one of the many Australians that are stepping up their game yet again before the foreigners arrive and by all accounts spending countless hours chasing every small detail to take on what can only be described as the most competitive pro time attack field yet.
