Track Bred EG6 Build… Part 16

Today I have a pretty exciting post for you guys. The floor is now completed and we’re in the test fitting phase just to make sure everything lines up correctly. Also, a first look at Jerry’s new fuel setup and some close ups as the engine bay starts to come together. I’ll let the photos do the talking from here…

For those who would have missed any parts along the way, I have provided the link below…

Track Bred EG6 Build…

While going through some photos, I managed to find a few with the new intake mounted before the radiator support was redesigned…

As you can see it already was a tight fit and it wouldn’t be possible for the air filter to be mounted, so it was a no brainer that the radiator support would need to be redesigned in order to accommodate this setup.

In comparison, here is a look at the intake after the radiator support has been redesigned…

With the new intake fitted, it proved to have some serious clearance issues with the Misimoto radiator, to solve this problem, Jerry contacted Ron Davis Radiators and had them custom build one to his specifications.

Interior test fitted to ensure everything works with the redesigned floor…

Included in this process was for Jerry to test out the new seating position to make sure everything was correct. If you pay close attention you would notice that Jerry has moved the handbrake from his left repositioned it next to the seat to his right…

A glance at the new fuel setup…

Here is a closer look at the fuel cell that Jerry will be running for the next race meet. Straight off you’ll notice that it is significantly smaller than the previous one, still being very concerned with weight, Jerry opted for this 3 gallon unit.

Good view of the interior as it starts to take shape, this car has come a long way from where it started…

Few shots of the back where you can see the exposed tank looking pretty daring, especially for a circuit car…

The culmination of necessary components needed to supply this beast with adequate fuel…

I loved the way this shot came out of the new fuel setup displayed at the back of the car…

Pretty cool shots of the Recaro seat mounted in its new position…

A view from above of the now redesigned exhaust tunnel with the fire extinguisher and Accusump mounted. You may not be able to tell straight off from this shot, but Jerry ditched the old Accusump for a smaller one, which in turn would be lighter. Another thing worth mentioning is the reason behind the placement of both the fire extinguisher and Accusump, they were positioned on either side of the exhaust to help with the weight distribution of the car. Placed directly opposite the driver’s seat on what was once the passenger side.

Almost there, the next step from here is to paint and reassemble the interior, then get the new setup tuned and ready to go for the race meet. That’s basically it for today’s update, I’m going to leave you guys with a few shots of Jerry’s custom built Ron Davis radiator…

A rough mock up…

Thanks for taking a look and stay tuned for our next update in this series…
