Daryl’s Rally K-EG Build… Part 7

It has been a while since I’ve had the chance to post an update on Daryl’s Rally K-EG Build. To recap, we saw Daryl suffer an unfortunate incident during the Valvoline Stage Rally where his hood blew up and severely damaged the windshield and roof. Fortunately he managed to have the car ready for the Scotiabank King Of The Hill, where he had a good day, placing first in his group, Modified 7. Heading into Day 1 of Sol Rally Barbados things were looking up, but he was plagued with a series of problems throughout the day that would cause him to later withdraw from the two day event.

Since the last update, he has been in the process of making some significant changes for the upcoming 2014 rally season. In today’s update we take a closer look at one of the major changes. I have also took the liberty to attach some in-car footage of him on two different stages, of which we can thank RallymaxxTv for.

As usual, for those who missed out of the previous posts, I’ve included the links below.

As I’ve mentioned earlier, Daryl is in the process of making some major changes for the upcoming season. He went forward and made the step-up from the H pattern dogbox to a sequential Sadev gearbox.

  A look at the shifter test fitted in the car…

To be sure the mount bracket was accurately fabricated, the gearbox was fitted to the engine…

Initial stages of the fabrication process…

After the first set of fitting and welding here is what the bracket looks like…
