Track Bred EG6 Build… Part 17

We’re back today with another part to Jerry’s Track Bred EG6 build. In the previous update, the interior had been completed and Jerry was in the process of test fitting everything to make sure it came together correctly. Today we’ll be taking a look at some of the new goodies that he received for the build and I also have some shots of the car during the paint process. So far everything seems to be coming together quite well in terms of being on schedule for the race meet.

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

Track Bred EG6 Build…

 

For those already updated  lets jump right in and take a look at the parts Jerry received…

First on the list, upper control arm eye bolts with solid bushings…

Due to temperature changes from the last race meet, Jerry had an issue regulating the tire pressures. However for the next race meet he plans to use nitrogen instead of compressed air in the tires, in doing so the tire pressure will remain stable for longer periods of time and it will also read consistent as the tires heat up during a race. In the event that Jerry may encounter any problems at the track he purchased a 5 gallon tank from Longacre to store some nitrogen.

Jerry also picked up some of K-Tuned’s billet shifter stops. These are suppose to help with over shifting during a race, which can cause shift cables to stretch or break, shifter selector to break or damage gears and shift forks in the gearbox.

Another noticeable change from last event, Jerry picked up a Setrab oil cooler and ditched the old setup…

With the redesigned floor being out of aluminum, there will be a significant increase in heat, to help with this Jerry got hold of some thermo-shield…

K-Tuned thermostat housing…

Highly anticipated package….

Eibach Multi-Pro two way coilover suspension…

Table full of goodies…

New Hoosier A6 rubber…

Rear bumper and front fenders could do with a little touching up…

Meanwhile….

As the paint is being blown…

Underside included…

View of the cage fully painted, you get an idea of what the final product will look like…

Along with the rivets, Jerry went ahead and added a thin coat of sealant wherever the aluminum sheets met…

Clear coat added…

Shiny shiny…

As you can see Jerry wasted no time in starting the re-assembly, fuel cell in place…

Swirl pot, LCAs, ASR brace and hollow sway bar, all laid out and ready to be installed. And on that note, this is where I will close out today’s update, I hope you guys enjoyed it.
