Track Bred EG6 Build… Part 19

Crunch time! It’s exactly that right about now… Even with the phases of development of the car being on schedule for the race meet, the team ran into some issues and making the event started to look as though it may not happen anymore. Things were looking pretty bad, qualifying had taken place and the car still hadn’t made it to the dyno as yet. Jerry managed to squeeze in some time on the dyno the night before race-day and was able to get a mild tune. Unfortunately I don’t have any dyno footage to show you guys but however, for the limited time that Jerry had at his disposal he was able to put out 240whp and 170 lb-ft of torque.

Another major exterior change to go along with the redesigned front that the car saw for the upcoming race meet, was a newly designed livery of which I took the liberty of making sure there were enough photos so you guys can check it out. I’ve also included a couple shots of the final stages before completion.

As always the link to the previous posts can be found below for those who may need to catch up on this build…

The new livery made its way to the tailgate as well…

Here you can get a better idea of how the livery flows from the front towards the back of the car…

A closer view of the completed hood…

A look at the Setrab oil cooler fully mounted with the lines finally ran…

A few post back I’ve mentioned that from this race meet onward, Jerry will be using nitrogen in his tires. To accommodate for this change, an additional valve was needed…

That sticky Hoosier A6 rubber…

On arrival at the dyno…

A glance at the completed interior which is miles away from where it started

Livery looking really sharp…

That’s all for today’s update, thanks for taking a look and stay tuned to find out what happened on race-day…
